We stayed with friends and loved this quirky, fun place. The staff are great if a little unorthodox. We had dinner in the hotel the first night and it was excellent. The staff don't write down your order but got everything correct for five of us. The restaurant was busy and had a vibrant atmosphere. Our room was very nice... More

Had a superb weekend here, wonderful breakfast and a fantastic room, although it was a little smaller than the photo, and the staff forgot to make up our room after out first night. However the friendly service and comfort made it up for. Also they stopped serving drinks quiet early here and there aren't a lot of places to go... More

Just came back from spending 3 nights here, the whole stay was excellent and I would definitely recommend to anyone. I went with my wife and two kids, the staff couldn't do enough for you, and were very friendly throughout. We ate hear and at the sister restaurant urban reef and the food was superb at both.

There is no limit to what these people will do to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This trip didn't happen as planned. I will poorly - but no matter, medication was brought straight to me. And my daughter left her special bedtime rabbit behind. He arrived in the post the next day tucked up in a makeshift rabbit-bed... More

I stayed in the room at the top which had a comfy bed and was very nicely decorated. I had dinner in the restaurant and the portions were generous. Only down points were the facts that I could hear the people in the next door room really clearly and the service was slow in the restaurant. I'm not sure it's... More

We went with some friends for dinner and drinks here on a Saturday night. It is a dinning out experience price but worth it. The food was yum. Portions were petite but still yum. The service seemed like they could do with more staff took around 1 hour 20 mins for food to come. Every drink order took around 25... More

Other than the fact I checked in stayed for an hour and checked out again I dont think I need to say much more!! This was nothing more than a raucous pub with rooms above it. The service was awful with residents waiting for drinks longer than those at the bar. The food was ridiculously priced for a mediocre at... More

Booked a last minute night away in Bournemouth for our wedding anniversary and we were so pleased to have stayed here. The staff were top class from start to finish and were very polite and friendly. The whole hotel is a great place to stay and there has been some great thought put into the added extras you get such... More

Have been here lots of times, for drinks, breakfast, diner and lunch. Good all round. Great for a good pint or even a coffee. The outdoor area is really good. Has heaters and an outdoor bar (shack) too.

We went to The Urban Beach hotel last night with our friends - for my wife's birthday and from the moment we arrived to our taxi arriving we had a fantastic time .. When we arrived we sat in the outside area - blankets are provided for the evening chill as well as heaters for added comfort if you wish... More
