“Good value hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Stayed for one night whilst in Dorset on business. Hotel is situated on a busy main road with a small private car park.
The staff were friendly and great value for a comfortable and modern single room. £40 on a room only basis and didn't opt for breakfast as I thought £12 pretty excessive.
Great position for the seafront. Two minute walk by crossing over road, down adjacent road and through a park. Warning though....The beach is situated down a large number of steps but I'm sure there must be other ways of getting down there. At the bottom of the beach steps there is a Harvester pub (5 minute walk).
The hotel itself had a clean restaurant and bar area but I didn't use it as I used the Harvester on the seafront.

Me and a friend wanted a cheap stay in Bournemouth for a weekend. The rooms were cleaned every day with the tea and coffee topped up and also towels replaced. Couldn't of asked for more for what we paid great location, helpful staff and will defiantly make a return.

My boyfriend and myself wanted to have a low cost weekend away on the beach. Really good location, only 10 minutes walking to town centre and 5 minutes to the beach. Staff were polite and helpful at all times, even they recommend us a few nice places in the town to have dinner. The room was very clean and looked up to date and tidy. Really nice flat screen TV! Stayed for 2 nights and had no problems during our stay. Car park is free and it was enough space in the whole stay. Also, they have a nice bar where you can chill out having a drink during the evening. Thank you very much to all the staff at West Cliff Inn. Looking forward to visit soon again.

Room Tip: Try to stay in one of the Standard Room, well worth it!

this is a warning to anybody thinking of booking a stay at the west cliff inn, we had a one night stay there and i can honestly say it is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in , the room was dirty and extremely tired but by far the worst thing about this hotel is the manager who is both rude and obnoxious. we found dirty underwear in our room left by a previous guest , our complain was met with insults and aggressive behavior. our message to anybody looking for somewhere to stay in Bournemouth avoid this place and save yourself a very unpleasant experience.

The West Cliff Inn is fantastic. The owners are mans and malik and they make you feel so welcome, they treat you like family!.
I have to say every member of staff are friendly. The staff are a credit to this hotel.
In regards to the rooms they are of good size, definitely go for standard double room.
I feel so relaxed.!!!
Thank you mans and malik, I am loving my holiday . X
