“Newer place that can be counted on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Since we were coming from the States, we wanted to reserve something that was not to risky for first couple of nights. This worked for us. Right in the middle of Bournemouth, the Ramada Encore had clean rooms and a good base. On-site parking and free wi-fi. The restaurant is nothing to speak of and other than foreign tour groups, not one ate there. The breakfast was traditional English buffet style. If you are coming in from far away and do not want to take a chance on a smaller place, this works fine.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our hotel and I am sorry you didn't get a chance to eat in our restaurant, we have worked hard to improve our dinner service, so hopefully you could try it on your next visit.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Management & staff extremely attentive to our needs and professional in their approach to customer service. This applied right across all areas from the front desk, housekeeping to maintenance.

We stayed in 3 rooms for 11 days & as another reviewer mentioned this hotel is minimalist as it was designed to cater for short corporate stays, but the staff provided additional hanging space & a draw unit for the extra clothes. However, we all felt very comfortable during our stay & we loved the wet room en-suite shower & air conditioning that really worked properly, as it we had very good weather.

Car parking good & free, wifi good & free, location perfect for pier, shopping & restaurants, breakfast good & catered for all tastes, rates competitive, we would not want to stay anywhere else no matter how many stars they may have!

Room Tip: Great views from top floors at the front to the sea.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for a few days. There's on site parking (free) which is convenient when you don't want to park on the street. Also free wifi with a pretty good signal. The rooms are clean and quite spacious and comfortable with a good sized bathroom. There is a pretty good variety of food at breakfast and the restaurant offers dinner (kitchen closes at 9pm) which is good if you've had a long day and not in the mood to go far. About a 10-15mins walk from the hotel to the beach, shops etc which is quite pleasant. Also a 20 mins drive from Poole, which is very historic for all those who are interested. All in all a great hotel!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We took four rooms for a family weekend in Bournemouth. The hotel is quite central, had good parking facilities and was clean and efficient. The rooms were 'minimalist' but were ok - a good bed, a decent TV and a wet-room, although storage was sparse. Breakfasts were self-service and good.
