Where do I begin? Room 23 has a damp smell on entry. The bedroom furniture is recycled metal kitchen cabinets. The furniture tops are cut down to size and finished off at the edges with duct tape? The duvet cover was very old faded and came from the 80's/90's era. The tea/coffee making facilites were poor 3 unwrapped teabags, 3... More

Stayed here on the weekend just gone. Booked 5 rooms for myself and some friends. The rooms were good and were a nice size. No tea in our room which was disappointing but that was the only problem with the room. The main reason I have only given it 3 stars is because when we first arrived the welcome we... More

Welcome was warm. So was the room - sadly only the tiny to windows opened. Regardless - the stay was great. Breakfast was delicious and staff were friendly. Parking on site was handy and sorry distance to the beach.

We went to The Liston Hotel with National Coach Holidays Monday to Friday half board for my husbands 75TH birthday. I could say a few things about the bus company but I am not going to because for me this is all about the fabulous hotel, staff, and lovely Boscombe. It is a long way from Leeds but when your...

Visited with my partner for a weekend away. Wasn't disappointed. Lovely period hotel with features. The room was gorgeous. We had a superior double with a balcony. Overlooking the lovely gardens. It was very spacious and had everything in it you could want. Breakfast was great value for money. The staff were very friendly. Would definitely go back.

The service my whole family received was excellent throughout our stay and the hotel accommodated all our requests. The food was homemade and delicious with special mention of the gorgeous breakfast. I would have given a 5/5, however my shower temperature control didn't work (#29) and the room was very hot, albeit it is June!

Very enjoyable visit, the owner greeted us with a smile and the room was ready for when we arrived even though we were about an hour earlier. Room was clean and well maintained, it was slightly too hot, there was a fan available. Unfortunately we found it next day in the morning, our fault. Breakfast was very nice and served... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was furnished to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. The meals were of the best quality we have had on a coach trip in Britain, and were served by pleasant and efficient staff. The entertainment was very enjoyable on the nights we were there, and the management... More
