“Welcoming, clean, good location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We needed a hotel with close proximity to the beach as we were exhibiting at the Bournemouth Wheels Festival in May. A smart and clean hotel close to the clifftop and beach but set back a little for improved peace and quiet. Reception staff welcoming and attentive, as were all the other staff. Very relaxed atmosphere put us at ease immediately.

Visited this hotel on a Shearings 8day break had a great time, the hotel was very nice, the staff were very helpful and the dining room staff were very good, we had room 208 it is very small but ok the only minus is not enough room for your clothes in this room but we made the best of it.

Stayed at this hotel in March with Shearings. Very comfortable. The food was excellent and the staff very good. Entertainment in the evening was a quiz, bingo and speciality acts. My husband and I would definitely go again.

We enjoy our visits to the Bay Majestic. The hotel itself is gradually being updated. The room we had on the first floor had adequate space for clothes and other belongings. There was only one drawer, but the new-style wardrobe had shelves as well as hanging space. The en-suite was usable, but the shower cubicle was very small - about two feet square. The door could only open about halfway, so more generously proportioned guests may well have a problem accessing the shower. However, the water was always hot. The bed was comfortable and there was a flat screen TV with all the Freeview channels.

Reception staff were all very helpful, and were quick to arrange for us to have an extra pillow, and also a supply of coffee, tea and milk when the room attendant forgot to leave us any one morning.

The food was also good, and the restaurant staff were hard-working and helpful. We found the portions of food to be sufficient, but we noticed that if guests asked for more vegetables, or larger portions at breakfast, the staff were willing to oblige.

There was entertainment each evening and a quiz, plus bingo. However, no bingo on Sunday.

Parking spaces can be pre-booked for £5 a night. However, if you visit the hotel just for a weekend, bear in mind that there is no charge for parking in Derby Road and some nearby roads after 5pm on Friday until 9am on Monday. We arrived just after 1pm and paid just £2 for the four hours parking until 5pm. Just ensure that you move your car before 9am on Monday morning!

Buses run from near the end of Derby Road, towards Bournemouth, Poole and beyond to the west and Boscombe and Christchurch to the east. Those who enjoy a walk can access the east cliff by turning left out of the hotel, heading to the mini roundabout and walking through a short alleyway. It takes about 20-25 minutes to walk into Bournemouth if you can walk at a reasonable pace.

Hi Christopher M
Thanks for your review I am pleased to see you enjoyed your time with us and made use of most of our facilities. The pool is open now; I went in it last week for the first time this year and as it’s an outdoor pool I can confirm it should only be used by the brave until the weather warms up a bit. Its still a sun trap and the loungers make it a lovely spot for some sun bathing. We hope to see you again soon

First impression was very good. Paid for parking as this is needed at this hotel. The bedroom was one of the better in Shearings Bay hotels, well decorated and clean and well presented. The first evening meal was not to my husbands liking, but the variety in the meals improved. The entertainment was very good and worth watching. well presented and not too loud.

Spent two nights here - would not willingly return, although love Bournemouth. Staff well presented and helpful; food acceptable. However, fabric of property very tired and tatty, in places quite dirty. Wallpaper hanging off wall at back of restaurant. Amazed that lift deemed acceptable by modern health and safety standards. Stayed in room 324 - unbelievably tiny, with bathroom even smaller. Water pressure variable, at times cutting out completely. Decor in bedroom ghastly artex from 1970s. Slightly grimy.

Hi weehet
Thanks for your view I am sorry to hear we didn’t live up to your expectations on this occasion. Although the hotel may look a little tired in a few places we do have a continues program of improvements and we always keep things fresh and clean. We always try to offer value for money accompanied by 1st class service.
