We arrived on a 5 day (tinsel & turkey) break with national holidays, although national advertise this as Bournemouth the hotel is in the adjacent town of Boscombe but don't let that put you off booking into this hotel. We had a very friendly welcome, mince pies and punch!! very nice. Our room was more than adequate, very clean, nice... More

I was very impressed with the service my friends and I received when we stayed here just a couple of weeks ago. One of my friends was wheelchair bound and was located on the ground floor. We were very happy with our rooms. They were clean and with a small fridge and flat screen tv there was more than enough... More

We stayed here for 1 night when the Bournemouth Marathon Festival was on. We found the hotel & a parking space at the front without any trouble. Check-In was speedy & the lady (Diane) was very nice. We were asked if we wanted to book in for breakfast & dinner but we had plans already so unfortunatly couldn't do this.... More

We were welcomed with a big smile and good sense of humour. Nice hotel. Staff were all extremely helpful and happy. Breakfast very good. We had 2 rooms, I got the impression that perhaps they are doing up the rooms one by one, the 'superior' twin was very nice with large-ish bathroom and nice big walk in shower, the 'standard'...

I have visited Gilbeys on several occasions for meals and decided to have my 70th birthday lunch here along with 30 guests. The food was outstanding, the service effective, efficient and courteous. Diane was most helpful in organising the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant. Brian G- Bournemouth

We wanted a venue near to where we and our guests lived. Having used Gilbeys restaraunt on several occassions for Birthday parties and other celebrations this was an obvious choice. Diane Gilbey was extreemly helpful and helped us with producing a menu that our 30 guests could choose from in advance. There was something for all tastes. We took over... More

The hotel is beautiful with lovely gardens with lots of hidden areas , vegetable patches and ponds for the children to discover. The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful and we just want to thank them again for making our little boy's big... More

We stayed at the Liston for the Air Show weekend, The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was lovely. The building is a bit of a mish-mash of styles. The entrance hall and dining rooms are beautifully traditional and our room was very comfortable, if a little small. The room was in a newer part of the building, so... More
