Food was good and the beer selection was great! Enjoyed them both out on the deck! Wish this was my local... Food was slightly delayed (not sure why) but apology was extended and discount given before we'd even raised the issue! Fantastic experience

Just stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting family and couldn't have booked a better hotel. The hotel rooms are excellent but what makes it is the staff and the vibe of the restaurant and bar. You don't want to go any where else. Thank you for a wonderful stay we will definitely book again for our next trip. Would also... More

My husband and I stayed at the Urban Beach Hotel for 2 nights with our little 21 month old toddler, after it was recommended to us by a friend who came to visit a few months back. The room was a little more expensive than we would usually pay, but due to the recommendation we thought we would treat ourselves.... More

We wanted a really funky vibe for a one night away walking distance from the sea. We got it! Stayed in the room with bathroom up a couple of stairs (maybe 7?) fab room and furnishings actually nicely spacious too. Only negative was a cooking smell. The bar area and outside decked area is brilliant, great cocktails and the hotel... More

This hotel is wonderful. Beautiful room, great breakfast & dinner. Great location, lovely walk into Bournemouth along the sea front. Staff are lovely and nothing is to much trouble. Even though you are above a bar/restaurant you wouldn't know it they have taken a lot of care to make the rooms as sound proof as possible. Will be recommending to... More
