We only booked the rooms we stayed in about 2 hours before we arrived at the Urban Beach and were so pleased we did. The rooms were all clean, bright and fairly newly refurbish I should say. I stayed in a single room which was compact but had everything I could need. Colleagues stayed in bigger rooms and each one...

Although this is a few miles from home, we try and visit most Sundays for what we believe are the best breakfasts and roasts in town . To boot this restaurant has such a laid back and cool vibe plus the staff are amazing ! Way better than Urban Reef !!

Sunday lunch at Urban Beach is 2 or 3 courses @ a reasonable £15 or £19, the quality of the food was excellent and the staff were all friendly and attentive. We arrived with no booking so took a table in the open plan conservatory type extension. Although it was chilly outside the heated seats and numbers of people made...

Just had a lovely overnight stay at Urban Beach. Although fleeting, the place is just the right side of funky and kitsch. A little bit worn around the edges, it's still got a lovely relaxed charm and judging by the newly refurbished deck outside the bar area, it looks as though the owners are sorting the decor out. Our room...

Whether it's the outside bar area, which even in the winter is brilliant fun, or dinner in restaurant, the wonderful rooms or the amazing breakfast all delivered by staff who obviously love being part of this amazing business, this is a great place to stay, relax and chill out. Can't wait to come back.

Only by accident did we find this place on our way back from a trip to Boscombe and very glad that we did! We stayed for a couple of drinks and lunch, promising ourselves that when we have more time we will spend longer there. A very decent selection of food on the menu and a fair selection of drinks...

Yet again (think it was our 8th visit) a lovely break in this great boutique hotel. The staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. Both Charlotte and Lee went out of their way to make my partners birthday extra special. The food is great and the atmosphere very relaxed. Our only criticism was that the room was very...
