Weekend stay, mum with two teenage boys, clean rooms very friendly staff and guests.
We really enjoyed our stay, the pool was super warm just perfect in Feb.
Evening entertainment appeared to be received well, people were up dancing, boys and I played snooker although more space needed or shorter queues please.

Room Tip: sea view room

Stayed here Friday till Monday in January. Lovely room ocean view and a balcony a bit dated but clean and everything we needed. Stayed in for evening meal three courses very nice staff very polite and attentive. Great entertainment in the evening and other guests friendly. Breakfast excellent nice and hot and plenty of variety the restaurant manager very funny. We swam in the pool everyday it was so hot! The location is ideal the beach is opposite and we had a lovely walk to Boscombe although the weather was a bit rough we still enjoyed it. The town is within walking distance as well. I would recommend this Hotel for location and the staff.

Room Tip: Ocean view with a balcony fantastic

Alright for a budget hotel, but avoid if u have the chance to stay at the village or hallmark. It's very old, rooms are dated and unfashionable. Spa facilities are rubbish, we was suppose to stay for 2 nights but ended up driving home after the first nite. Floorboards are squeaky and loud entertainment at nite until about 12! In the morning breakfast was moderate nothing to rave about. Maid asked if we wanted the room cleaning I replied no because I was changing and then 10 minutes later and man came in unannounced whilst me and my partner was on the bed.... Very embarrassing. Rude staff at times.

We stayed here for the weekend and found that the the staff were really helpful and polite. I was on my own in the day whilst my husband was working and was made to feel very comfortable. Staff were always willing to help with local knowledge and the pool was lovely and warm. I also enjoyed the splendid breakfasts and delicious cream teas served in the lounge. The entertainment was not really our thing but the coach parties seemed to be having a great time. Great value for money.

Very clean all round, helpful staff .
Convenient for local amenities, Excellent food.

Didn't enjoy Saturday evening when squashed into smaller area to eat because of a function and a fire alarm at 1am with no explanation

We recently celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary at the Suncliff hotel, Bournemouth, in their conservatory function room. We had about 50 guests attend and had a fantastic time. The organisation of the party was flawless and the staff could not have been more helpful throughout the whole function.
The food was excellent and plentiful and the DJ arranged by the hotel was very good.
At the end of the evening we were able to sit quietly in the bar and catch up with the family and the staff were happy to serve us until the early hours of the morning.
The accommodation overnight was nice and breakfast in the morning was very good.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and felt that the Suncliff offered very good value for money, also nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. This is our third visit and we look forward to going back again.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms with a balcony are very nice. If you want to be extravagant try one of the "...

Travelled from North by coach. Very good first impressions were confirmed by good, warm accommodation, hot water and pleasant room. Dining room was above average, very friendly staff and evening meals were excellent. Breakfast buffet was again excellent. Evening entertainment each night was good. Our trip had 99p drinks from 6pm till 9pm. Everyone there seem to enjoy themselves, no moans that we heard but for £110 for 4 nights, travel and two included day trips what could be better. Holiday taken 20/02/2014 to 24/02/2014. Well done Suncliffe!
