My husband and I love Bournemouth. This has now become one of our favourite hotels. The location is perfect for everything we wanted to visit and even a fabulous walk on the beach. Our room was perfectly clean and the facilities were as expected. The hotel itself is a bit dated, but the staff are just great and breakfast hit... More

We went to the Ocean View for New Years Eve and had an excellent night. The staff were all courteous and helpful and the food very good too. What lets this hotel down is the tiredness of the hallways and our room, which makes me believe the others are the same too. We were in room 110 which was a... More

I stayed at The Ocean View Hotel over Christmas and had the time of my life. The food was superb and the staff most attentive. The room was wonderful with a lovely sea view and I was lulled to sleep by the sea. I intend to return Christmas 2015 to meet with friends made during an excellent holiday. I would... More

We stayed over night at this hotel during August for an overnight stay. The interior of the hotel could do with a bit of updating as well as the rooms ( but you kind of of expect that with the age of the hotel anyway and it being down on the coast), I found the room to be of acceptable... More

Went here for a Christmas Party Night which turned out to be a great evening, the food was excellent, the drinks prices reasonable & the staff were all friendly & efficient. We stayed for the night afterwards for £25.00 each including a quality buffet breakfast the next morning. Okay it's a bit tired & dated but everything is very clean... More

This place cost just £27.50 a night and was absolutely top notch! We were upgraded to a sea view room that was huge and had a super king size bed. It was immaculately clean and the people were very warm and friendly. I gave 4 instead of 5 for service because they closed the bar early despite us making it... More

Stayed for one night, although hotel a bit tired in places it is very clean and the staff are wonderful, room was very nice with a sea view. Breakfast was excellent, buffett style but well worth it. Would definitely stay here again.
