My partner and I are a gay couple and we booked a five night stay at the Safari Hotel in Bournemouth a few years ago. Saying it is disgusting and unpleasant is the understatement of the year! Definitely a hotel (if you can actually call it that!) to avoid like the plague. I've stayed in hostels with higher standards! When...

Visited this hotel as part of a stag party back in June. I have to say the couple running it were amazing and a great breakfast. The rooms do need modernising and the bathroom needed a lot of work including a light!! Great venue for a stag or hen party local to the town centre and once they finish the...

I spent four nights at the Hotel. The room was clean and tidy with en suite facilities. I had a pleasant sleep and a lovely breakfast each morning and had a relaxing time on the beach and doing leisurely things you usually do on a holiday. The staff are very helpful and do a great job. What a lovely find...

This hotel can not be called a hotel, and felt more like a hostel. The rooms were dated though acceptable in cleanliness. The shower was freezing throughout the stay, though we did hear that the room above ours was on the other hand scorching and was not usable. We had to seek out family in order to have a shower....

A group of 9 ladies staying at the safari bistro for 1 night. A bit of a god send as many places researched for stays in Bournemouth only offered 2 nights stays as a minimum.
