Lovely place to eat and drink, great atmosphere and friendly staff. We came here to grab a sharers platter, have a couple of drinks and a good chat. The menu and garden area remind me of my travels across California.... Would highly recommend.

I should slap my own wrists for not reviewing this lovely friendly bar/restaurant before. I've eaten here 6 times now, combination of breakfast, dinner and Sunday Roast. Every time the food and service is on point. The staff are so helpful and genuinely friendly, probably one best places in Bournemouth for customer service. Cheese soufflé tonight was to die for,...

Fantastic location, good room, really friendly staff, but disappointing food. I had 3 meals and there were issues each time. Either getting the order wrong, long wait time or simply badly prepared. And the worst, non-instant, coffee I think I've ever tasted. A real shame as I think it could be great.

Underwhelming service and indifferent food. The fish and chips was very average and not very hot. The toastie had hard toasted bread, hardly any cheese, commercial piccalilli, no chutney and rather greasy, chewy crisps. We weren't offered a children's menu. Ladies loo was a good size for a wheelchair and there was a portable ramp to get in and out... More

Me and my partner stayed here recently on the 4th of July for 3 nights. When we arrived we had no problem parking in one of the spaces right outside the hotel. We did arrive at lunchtime and the reception is a desk in the restraint, so understandably the lady who greeted us was a bit rushed off her feet... More

Stayed here at the weekend, believe me when I say I have "Hotel Issues" so I always investigate where I stay for hours before I book. Hotel is clean and comfortable, the staff are fun and friendly, cocktails are FAB. Nothing was too much trouble. Charlotte thanks for everything.......... Located 5 mins from Boscombe Pier, lovely walk along the front... More

A group of us, from London, spent a weekend at the Urban Beach Hotel for a 40Th Birthday Celebration. I can say we took a bargain to choose the boutique hotel over the premier hotels, but were not disappointed! Upon arrival at the hotel, the entrance is small and they do not provide your usual standard receptionist in uniform awaiting... More

I didn't stay at the B&B, only ate at the restaurant. I had breakfast and dinner here. Both were truly excellent. The main evening meal and pudding was absolutely delicious, obviously cooked by a real chef! Such a relief after eating out so many awful or average meals in Bournemouth. The breakfast was fantastic too. Sausages top quality etc. (Only... More

My wife and I first stayed at Urban Beach for our honeymoon two years ago. We were so impressed by everything (room, food, staff) that we decided to celebrate our second anniversary there again and they didn't fail to impress. The room is incredibly comfortable and the food is amazing but what makes this hotel so unforgettable is their staff.... More

I wish I'd known about this place before I visited Boscombe as I'd have stayed here. As it was we ate here twice and each time had a wonderful experience. Our first visit was for Sunday roast which cost £15 for two courses and certainly didn't disappoint. The staff couldn't do enough to ensure a pleasant experience and the presentation... More
