Old fashioned hotel but lovely. Great friendly staff. Brilliant bar food. Gym ok. I visit Bournemouth every week and this hotel is a refreshing change from Premier Inns. Will stay again. I was booked in on a single rate and asked for a double bed which they accommodated me to. Young man serving in bar is very engaging and customer... More

My partner booked us into the Elstead for a 2-night stay and having read reviews I wasn't disappointed, if possible I was even more impressed than I hoped to be. The hotel is in a quiet location but only a 10-15 minute stroll into the very heart of the town centre or the glorious sandy beach. The room was extremely... More

Tea & coffee plentiful & reception happy to give more when we asked. The gym & pool was lovely, open 7 til 10pm. The changing facilities were great with showers, hair dryers & even a... More

Stayed here first weekend in August. Some of the employees work really hard and do a good job but our complaint was not dealt with. The water in the taps was green and despite complaining twice nothing was done. Shame as this let the hotel down. Picture attached. Flowers on table for breakfast were dead also. Night Porter was a... More

I have just returned from a 3 night stay with my mum aged 62 and my son aged 5. We were so impressed from the start with the warm welcome and friendliness of all the staff. The family room we stayed in was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast and evening meals in the bar were wonderful. We all thoroughly... More

I was very impressed. Although it has the appearance of a traditional English resort hotel (though updated), the facilities are much better than that would suggest and the staff are helpful, approachable and very competent (which has on the whole not been my experience of similar hotels in England). Our room was spacious with a large bathroom. The TV was... More

This place is just like how hotels used to be, before they became all commercialised, like the kind of hotel my parents would take me to when I was little, and I've rather enjoyed it! A very pleasant hassle free check in, very polite staff, yes it is a rather dated but what do you expect from a classic hotel?!... More
