This is a family run hotel and we spoke to the owner - a very charming man. Our room was overlooking the pool and was very clean. I came with a coach party and we were given a good position in the dining room whereas we are usually put in a corner out of sight. The food was 5 star.... More

Thanks for taking the time to pass on your comments to other travellers coming to Bournemouth and us here at the Hinton Firs.

Yes I know, I know everyone's holiday experience is different and I'm sure that some recent reviewers would disagree strongly with my title for this review. My wife and I stayed at Hinton Firs last week and enjoyed ourselves immensely. It's a family run independant hotel (unusual these days...and nothing like the big impersonal hotel chain establishments so common these... More

After such good reviews I was feeling optimistic about this hotel, and it's true there isn't one major thing I can complain about, but a series of little things that added up to a pretty disappointing experience. We arrived late at night (having forewarned the owners this would be the case) and my daughter was fast asleep in my husband's... More

I am very sorry to hear that things were not to you liking during your stay. As parents I thought you would be a little more understanding and grateful that we do take the health and safety of our guests very seriously; and once a small child has been sick in the pool we do take every precaution to make...

Firstly we arrived early and because our room wasn't ready the receptionist took our number and called us when it was ready, whilst we had a walk on the beach. The receptionist could be more professional around customers, we witnessed a lot of eye rolling towards other customers while she was dealing with them. The room we had ( number... More

We stayed here as part of a coach group. Check in was a bit manic but their was about 50 people to check in at the same time. The hotel room was ok, nothing special.

This hotel which is situated just off Eastcliff is a small family hotel. The whole place is in need of an update but the food is wonderful and freshly cooked. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
