Have done a number of Shearings breaks including Straphpeffer in Scotland, Isle of Wight, Eastbourne, Paignton, St. Ives and Ilfracombe (3 times) and have to say that the Majestic Bournemouth is the best so far. Can't really fault it at the price. Staff were friendly and efficient, food was very acceptable and slightly above average (for Shearings). The hotel itself was comfortable with spacious lounge/bar areas. The bedroom was clean and perfectly adequate, the only annoyance was the constant ticking of a retro clock radio!
All in all a very pleasant and enjoyable break.

The hotel is just a short walk to the shops and variety of seaside attractions and is set in a great location for you to explore the surrounding area. Dinner can be enjoyed in the comfortable restaurant and guests can also benefit from a snooker room, outside terrace and swimming pool.
