Pleasantly surprised to discover that although this Britannia Hotel @East Cliff in Bournemouth appeared somewhat tired and distressed, furnishings-wise....our room was both comfortable and clean with a good view of the neighbourhood. The staff all appeared to be eastern and western Europeans...but very pleasant and very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts and evening meal ...the food... More

Just got back from a one night stay at this hotel. Eight of us were booked into the penthouse and after having read the negative reviews I was quite worried about what we were all heading into. I need not have feared, the penthouse was huge, and was absolutely spotless. The beds were lovely and comfortable and there were clean... More

Very scruffy around the edges; chipped paintwork, threadbare carpets (held together with duct tape on the stairs). However, room was comfortable and it was good value for what I paid. A few yards to the cliff-top and a reasonable walk into town. Nice pool and the £4 fee to use it not too extortionate.

Decent enough room but needs a bit of tlc. The shower cubicle doors were hanging off. I did report it to reception when I checked out and they said they'd report it to maintance but looking at the state of the the fixings for the doors I would say they had probably been in that state for quite some time....

Stayed for one night at the cost of £60 for two on a dinner bed and breakfast basis, amazing value, even had a sea view. Decor a bit dated but very clean and a good self service restaurant. Reception staff very helpful. Would definitely recommend for a short, good value break

When I found myself 100 miles from home with nowhere to stay the Britannia group's helpful call centre was a godsend. I called to book the Carrington House which was full but was offered the Britannia nearby. The staff on arrival were helpful and the room was clean, comfortable and (very) warm. Additionally, the buffet breakfast exceeded expectations greatly, good... More

We booked a package deal via Wowcher for a mini break including wine, dinner, bed and breakfast. When we arrived it was disappointing from the start. The lobby was tired, old and bare. Upon check in we had to wait while two female staff members had a private conversation. When they realised we were there they then tried to charge... More

Stayed here for one night, and I think that was too much. Had no where to park so had to go across the road to sister hotel and use there car park and charged £3 to do so. Lift to room only took 2 people maximum, iv never seen such a small lift. Rooms were decent size, but decor and... More
