Fab, fab, fab! Only 11 rooms, all different but lovely. Staff so friendly and helpful. Food fantastic! Definitely stay here again! The lady that services the rooms let me look in all empty ones for future reference, so many lovely ones, spoilt for choice, she was so nice too! Breakfast was everything I asked for and more, thank you.

We stayed for 3 nights. We have a 6 month old baby. who the staff could not have done more for. They supplied a travel cot and a baby bath as we had rooms with showers. They even moved our bags as we changed room for the third night. The food was great. The staff better. only issue was they... More

My girlfriend and I went out for an, albeit late, lunch - yesterday afternoon. No member of staff was around to seat us or greet us at the door, so we just sat down anywhere. At no point for the first half an hour were we given menus or offered drinks by a member of staff. It wasn't until we... More

We had our second stay at Urban Beach and cannot praise the staff too highly. It was great to feel so well looked after & nothing was too much trouble, flasks of soup, extra friends for breakfast, all with a smile. The hotel retains it's warm and relaxed atmosphere

Got a fantastic deal to stay here for 2 nights. When we arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff who gave the impression nothing was too much trouble. We were able to park outside on the street for free as it is in the middle of a residential area which is a little strange but it did feel very... More

I was planning a weekend trip for my husband's birthday and was struggling to find a modern and luxurious (but still reasonably priced) hotel in Bournemouth until I found this gem! From the moment we arrived, all staff were really friendly and went out of their way to make everything perfect for us - even displaying 'birthday boy' banners and... More

I have stayed here numerous times, never in the same room, but I couldn't pick my favourite room they are all to the same high standard! The only problem I had with one stay is there didn't seem to be a tv remote. A wonderful breakfast which is absolutely delicious is included and a the cocktail bar downstairs is faultless.... More
