“We will go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2011

We stayed here with my son as we were all on a visit to Bournemouth Uinversity. The Duty Manager Jane was so helpful before we went she rang the bus company to find out the times for us and kindly e mailed them to me.

On arriving we were checked in very quickly and we were offered 3 different type of room. We opted for the family room which was a nice clean room and very quiet, with en suite.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was superb, such a lovely choice.

The hotel is near the beach and town centre has free parking and wifi access.

I would definitely return.

On arrival the staff were extremely helpful and very polite, even asking us our plans for the duration of the stay. The room we stayed in was clean with no problems or faults what so ever.

The staff even made a point of talking to us whenever we left the hotel and asking us how we were enjoying our stay not just at the hotel but in the area itself. I would not hesitate to visit this hotel again in the future with my partner.

Having booked a hotel just around the corner from the Carisbrooke we were disapointed to find they had double booked us with it being August bank holiday weekend and having drove 200 miles we thought thats our weekend over before its really started, but the owner arranged for us to stay at the Carisbrooke which in all fairness was better than the original hotel, the room we stayed in was light and airy, with a bath as well as a shower, the breakfast was great and set you up for the day, we will now use the carisbrooke whenever we go to Bournemouth which is normally 2 or 3 times a year

After reading other reviews I booked in to the Carisbrooke last month.

The welcome was friendly and it is conveniently placed for the beach and town centre.

The single room was clean with plenty of storage, but only had a small window at the top of the back wall, which made the room feel a little pokey. Unfortunately the night I stayed turned out to be a hot one and there was not enough ventilation from this one small window.

I'd be happy to stay again, although I think I'd ask for a different room next time.

I went for 3 nights with my sister and mother who is 71. We shared a room which had 3 single beds. We were welcomed on arrival and felt that nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. The plumbing was a bit dodgy. Hot water came from the cold tap, there was a small leak from behind the toilet which resulted in a damp floor and the shower was barely large enough when bending down to pick up shampoo from the tray as there were no shelves in the shower. These were minor inconveniences and did not spoil our time away. Bournemouth itself is a lovely town with plenty to do and a lovely clean beach. The Carisbrooke represents good value for money, the cooked breakfast each morning would have been better if we'd been asked how we liked our eggs cooked and we found the coffee bitter and strong but overall, I would recommend this hotel. Bournemouth is very hilly for those with mobility problems. (Poole is rather flatter)

I was in Bournemouth for a stag weekend and could not recommend the hotel highly enough. The owners, Nick and Emily, were extremely welcoming (despite the party being made up of 15 blokes!) and the service felt very personalised. We were well looked after, the breakfast was delicious and they were quick to offer advice in terms of Bournemouth itself. The hotel was small but clean and comfortable - I shared a room with two others and we were more than ok for space and the beds were excellent. The location was also perfect being close to both the beach and the town centre. I would definitely return to the hotel.
