This hotel is in an excellent position on Bournemouth's East Cliff. It is a short walk to the miles of sandy beach. The centre of Bournemouth is a twenty minutes walk or a five minutes walk to the many buses into Bournemouth and beyond. My single room was comfortable and spacious. Fixtures and fittings in this hotel are country house...

This hotel could be so much more, lovely building, good location, great room with a sea view. (Toilet broke but was fixed) Spa/Pool was a let down, jacuzzi was cold and dirty, could do with a much needed revamp. Bar was closed when we returned from an evening out which was advertised as 24hrs also menu for takeaway between 10pm-10am...

Probably have given this 2.5 if I could, it's not worthy of a 3. We've been coming in a group for several years but Hotel has definitely slipped backwards. Rooms just absolutely stupidly hot, totally dehydrated even with leaving balcony door wide open all night!!!! Breakfast pretty limited bread/cake selection, no fruit - cost cutting. Waiting staff just not got...

We booked this hotel for 2 nights in early January, as a birthday treat and was not disappointed. The seaview room with large balcony overlooking the ocean was spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed. The full English breakfast was delicious and Jonathan, the deputy manager, went out of his way to make our stay extra special. Oliver, the...

I have to say the whole of the spa area was very tired & is in need of a major refurbishment or at the very least a...

A shame the stay was disturbed by a negligent family with a noisy dog in the room next door. The experience did not start well as the check-in took nearly 20mins because the two stressed receptionists seemed to have a problem with the language. One was also unprofessional to the point of rudeness! Once checked in the room was clean,...

My partner and I attended the New Years Eve Gala Dinner at the Hallmark Carlton in Bournemouth and what a disappointment it was!! We were supposed to arrive at 7:00pm for a Bucks Fizz reception. We were not offered any drinks in fact my partner only got a glass of orange juice when I requested it. There was certainly no...
