“NICE AND CHILLED OUT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2006

After searching the internet for a place to stay for a couple of nights in bournmouth we found the Urban Beach Hotel. The website is set up to make the hotel look cool, relaxed and modern and in reality the hotel didn't dissapoint. We were after a 'chilled out' couple of days and this is exactly what we got - the hotel didn't have any of the stuffiness of the usual guest houses run by a couple of old grannies!
The rooms were fine - decorated with a glimse of whats to come when the renovations take place over the next couple of years - you get a taste of what Mark is trying to acheive.
The breakfast was great, again the modern furnishing and light room make it worthwhile coming down from your room for.
We would like to return in a couple of years to see the improvements and in the meantime recommend this hotel to friends and family.
thanks for a lovely time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2006

Have just returned from a four night stay at the Urban Beach and it was a very enjoyable experience. The owners Mark and Fiona and their staff were very friendly and eager to please.

Our room (no 11) was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom has not yet been upgraded , but when it has been it will be a great en-suite room.

The breakfast was delicious and we thought the sausages were very tasty!

The bar and dining room were very tastefully decorated and had lovely fresh flowers placed around.

The barbacue evening is an excellent idea and not to be missed. The one we attended was the last one of the season

Mark and Fiona are creating a stylish hotel with a relaxed atmosphere and with a lot of attention to detail. Would definitely return .
