Urban Beach is such a great place - we love it! I first visited with a friend in June, and we couldn't have been made more welcome. This place is SO chilled, yet super-efficient. A great place for cool dudes - young or old - so expect a relaxed, friendly vibe. No standing on ceremony here, chaps! Even though we... More

This is our 4th time at Urban Beach and once again our stay was superb. The rooms are really nice (they might be needing a little TLC in places as I believe its a while since the place was renovated, but if they do anything I hope they keep the style. The location is great, just a short distance from... More

It was a lovely day so knew the beach bars and cafes would be crowded so decided to give the Urban Beach hotel a go. It is not far from the beach especially to stay but just far enough to be away from the crowds. Being a sunday and of the older generation we chose the roast beef - it... More

I stayed over for work and had this hotel recommended to me by a local. Fantastically friendly staff throughout, a really chilled out venue with outstanding rooms, food and service. The prices are competitive and they even reserved me a car parking space. A short stroll to the beach, the location is fab. Eggs Benedict for breakfast and it was... More

My 83 year old mum & I have stayed here several times initially because it was convenient for a property we needed to visit. Now because it's like home from home! Rooms are richly decorated, beds comfy, showers fantastic. Excellent food offered throughout the day which is fresh & seasonal (nice to see local suppliers delivering). The bar offers a... More

We popped in to The Urban Beach for a quick lunch today. We chose from the £10 for two courses menu which is such good value. Husband had confit duck and black pudding terrine with sour bread and chutney starter then chargrilled chicken with dauphinoise potatoes and greens. I had the Devon brie with apple, salad leaves and almond flakes... More

If I could write one word reviews, I would just write: "Excellent" and be done with it. The rooms, the food, the drinks, the atmosphere were all "excellent". But the thing that really made it "Excellent" were the staff. For a smallish establishment, they have a big heart and went really out of their ways to accommodate 8, undercover, stag... More

This place is honestly the best place we found in Bournemouth, every single meal, drink and delight they offered we tried and enjoyed. The food is excellent everything has a little twist that really lets the chefs own the dishes. The staff are honestly the most friendly and at ease people you will ever meet. My mother and girlfriend enjoyed... More

This is my favourite place for Sunday dinner. Normally have the roast beef. This is not something I choose as beef out is quite often dry. Every time I have eaten the beef it's always amazing. Last visit went for the beef wellington and was not disappointed. Staff are always really friendly and food is well priced. Can't recommend it... More

We have often eaten here and had some lovely & very enjoyable meals so it pains me to say on this occasion they fell short of their usual high standards. We opted for the Sunday 2 course special offer priced at £15. As another reviewer mentioned in their review, 1 of the 2 slices of beef I had on my... More
