Had a rather brief stay so can't comment on all the facilities but everything was in order here. Very friendly greeting at reception, room was nice - clean and large, 3 towels each (v.g.). It was a hot weekend and the room was hot, but a fan was provided and that plus leaving the balcony door open fixed it. The... More

We stayed at Liston a couple of weeks ago for one night. The place was really quaint and pretty, decorated for a wedding. The huge staircase felt quite grand with its maroon carpet. We had a nice modern room with a balcony overlooking the pretty garden. Its a short 10 minute walk to to Boscombe Beach. Would definately recommend and... More

A gem of a hotel with nice rooms. Very clean and food good and plentiful. Nice dining area and lovely garden. Is surely on my list to visit again. Highly recommended for senior visitors.Short gentle walk to seafront and steady tweny minute walk to Boscombe town centre.Plenty of service buses to nearby towns.

We had our wedding reception on Saturday 12th July 2014 at The Liston Hotel and what an absolutely superb time we had from start to finish. We arrived at about 12.30 to welcome drinks and went to the beautiful gardens for photos. Our 3 course lunch was absolutely delicious as always, everything homemade and piping hot. The evening party was... More

We had a wonderful day yesterday 12/7/14. The hotel was in an immaculate condition. The food was excellent. Hospitality was first class.The gardens are stunning. Russ & Tracey couldn't have had a better start to their married life.

Travelling from Stockton on Tees with National Holidays, this is the second time we have stayed at the Liston Hotel in the last two years and I would recommend it to anyone. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The homemade meals are excellent, with plenty to choose from and the service was great. I would recommend this family run... More

National coach holidays use this hotel as one of three in bournemouth. The hotel is a family run hotel, with comfortable rooms.The food is excellent. We enjoyed the holiday. The downside is this hotel is out of the way in Boscombe.You can get a land train (£2.20 each way ) from Boscombe pier along the lower cliff road (very senic)... More
