I visited here today with a friend for a special spa day treat for us both. Having been to other various hotels for spa days we found the changing room very small with no cubicles to use. Once entering the pool we also found it very small and busy with the sauna very tiny too, the steam room also seemed... More

The hotel staff were helpful and friendly, the breakfast was very nice and the general standard of cleanliness and presentation was high. The only negatives are that the room was a bit small and could have done with a small fridge for water. Also the pool was a bit cloudy for some reason. Other than that, the small spa was... More

Booked last minute and was really impressed with the room and the location. We booked with two big dogs and, though they aren't allowed in the public areas, we were made to feel welcome with them. There is a garden area on the cliff top a few yards away where we could walk the dogs and we found a restaurant... More

A nice hotel with everything you would need. Reception staff very friendly & helpful. Parking is a bit of an issue, hotel car park was full, as were the surrounding side roads. Reception gave us a parking permit to use a hotel car park across the road which was a massive help! There's also a NCP, £10.00 for 24 hours.... More

We stayed at the Durley Dean for my birthday after booking online. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay! The positives: great location, good value for money, staff helpful, great pool and steam room (no extra charge for these, unlike some hotels) and free parking. Our only niggles were a really hot room (although rooms have fans provided), and very... More

We decided to go to Bournemouth last weekend as the weather was going to be good. The only problem was the hotel we normally stay at was fully booked. We picked this hotel as it was near the beach and it was reasonably priced. Our room was spotless and a decent size but the bathroom was tiny. The bed was... More

Great location, close to the town & beach, car park is very small but I managed to park on the road opposite, pool is small but ideal for young children, didn't have breakfast as it was £14 on the day but £9 in advance ! My biggest complaint is the noise from above, my room was on the lower ground... More
