We paid £33 for a booking we made about an hour before we turned up. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of our room for the price. The carpet looked brand new and our double bed and our son's single bed were both very comfortable. Location is good, a very short walk to the beach, either via the... More

Dont let the management pictures persuade you. Its really quite grubby and smelly hotel. Only the breakfast is the redeeming feature. We stayed on the 4th floor which was served by 1 lift that could only accomidate 2 people max. The other lift seemed to be non operational. The swimming pool is reached by going out the front door to... More

Stayed here during the air show, hotel was really nice. Friendly staff, they even told us where else we could park, due to car park being full. Breakfast was nice, decent size room. Very good value for money, definitely stay here again ☺

On the 2nd of August I was finding it hard to find a hotel or B&B in Bournemouth but at the last mintue i saw ahead of me the look of what might of been a nice stay in a big firm type hotel with a big entrance and welcoming porters. They had a cancellation for a a room going... More

I don’t know what to say to convey what a rough dump this is! The photos used to advertise it are very misleading. They make it look like a nice place. It isn’t! The car park is tiny and they charge £3 for each day you stay there. Not a bad price? But they over-book the spaces. So you end... More

We stayed here during the air show, i have been to better places than this, there was even an extra charge for using the pool, the lifts are a bit dodgy as well, i would not stay agin this hotel again.

Stayed at the Britannia for one night last week, very good value for money, the room I had was a very large spacious family room even though I was on my own, en suite was also good size and the shower was perfect. Breakfast was a buffet style which was hot well presented and plenty of it and the staff... More

I stayed here as a single person for 3 nights after booking online. Unfortunately if I had read the reviews beforehand I would never have stayed! Outside, the hotel looked inviting but once I had been given the key I went through several corridors where I began to feel I was John Coffey from the Green Mile. The walls were... More
