we visited this hotel between Christmas and new year for 4 days, on a coach trip. On arrival staff were too busy to come and welcome us from coach leaving the driver to hand out room keys, which meant we had to wait for our luggage until everyone was off the bus. No staff in reception to show anyone where... More

We booked a 2 night break for £122 bed and breakfast, so definitely NOT a budget break. When we arrived we were immediately struck with how run down the building is. When we went inside we were shocked to see the stair carpets were so badly worn, they were being held together with duct tape, one morning I witnessed a... More

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.
