It is true that the decor here is dated, nonetheless it is sparkling clean and very well maintained. The furniture is all of style and not mis-matched or tatty as I have found in other hotels where I have often paid more. I was surprised when I entered the room at just how pleasant it looked and felt. Included in... More

After a little difficulty finding the hotel I was checked in without any undue delay due to my online booking and payment. My room was located on the first floor up a seat of very creaky stairs, after which negotiating I then spotted the lift. My room was on the small side but I did book a single room so... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend. We didn't book the hotel ourselves and if we had the choice we wouldn't have. The hotel is very dated and needs a good clean and the heating turned down. It was hot everywhere. Bedrooms & Bathroom - very dated, most in our party had very uncomfortable beds. Old spring mattresses... More

Nice hotel and nice staff, well looked after hotel. I would stay here again. The hotel is not too far away from the town. The rooms are nicely finished and a small but well stocked bar. Breakfast is a buffet style and has a large seating area. Nicely kept flower baskets at the entrance of the hotel.

I was looking for a realistically priced hotel for 3 couples and a single for our group weekend away. This hotel stood out because of its ability not to charge me extra for the 'privilege' of staying in a single room and also the excellent TripAdviser reviews. From arrival , when Heather read my mind and knew exactly who I... More

Back for one more last visit in 2016 and although staying over the Halloween Weekend, I'm pleased to report that there was nothing scary during my three night stay!!!!! Everything excellent in all departments and it was good to catch up with all the staff, existing and new, from my early September 2016 visit. It's the friendliness of the hardworking... More

One minus point - we into the bar area a couple of times - it felt cold and draughty. I noticed someone using a vaper - its supposed to be a smokefree hotel, but even the vapers smell... More

We came for a night away in Bournemouth. The staff were very lovely, in particular Malcolm in the evening. Although it was past midnight we were drinking at, he couldn't do enough for us and took a genuine interest in us. The clientele at the hotel is unfortunately quite elderly, and truth be told being a young couple we did... More

We stayed just one night at the Elstead Hotel but were massively impressed by the courtesy, friendliness and helpfulness of every member of staff. The room was very pleasant, the bed was comfy and the full English breakfast delicious. We had a swim and sauna before breakfast and then walked down to the seafront (about 10 minutes away) for a...
