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.

I am only reviewing the restaurant, which came highly recommended. I went there for my birthday with the family and must have chosen an off night. The food was great, excellent in fact but the service was indifferent and slapdash, orders were wrong, then changed but still charged for. Service for drinks was non existent, I had to go get...

I have stayed at the Urban Beach hotel during my visit for the air show. The hotel is very unique in decorating, a very fun and friendly way. You will know from the photos I have uploaded. The service is great, when I arrived at 12pm, although the room was not ready, the girl on the counter happily kept my... More

I was travelling on my own for my 2-night break and picked this place out as it looked like it had a good vibe. The room was clean, the en-suite was pristine and well-stocked and you could watch DVDs on the telly if you fancied it. Everything seemed to have been thought through. I ate at the hotel the first...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Urban Beach Hotel on a Sunday night. When arriving, the restaurant downstairs was fairly busy but we was quickly attended to and shown to our room. We stayed in room 8. We couldn't hear the noise downstairs what so ever! The room was beautiful and meeted all our expectations. We were given a... More

From the personal welcome on arrival to the genuine request for feedback by email when we'd love, our stay this weekend at the Urban Beach Hotel was an absolute delight to stay in. We stayed in room 2 - a bit more expensive than some of the others, but spectacularly comfortable bed, beautifully appointed room with a fridge and a... More
