Room was well appointed, nice bathroom. Bar/restaurant definitely lively, food really tasty. Cocktails yummy. Breakfasts very good. Nice ambience. Slightly odd location but actually really convenient for both Boscombe & Bournemouth area. Staff all friendly & helpful. Ate one night at Urban Reef just down the road, slight error with order but rectified well.

I stayed here for one night in January and took advantage of the half price rooms. Had the rooms not been half price, I probably wouldn't have stayed as it is slightly out of my price range normally. The hotel was slightly out of the way, we walked a good 30 minutes from the train station to get there. The... More

Having worked for an airline for the last ten years, I end up living 50% of my life in 4 & 5 star hotels. I stayed at Urban Beach for my friends wedding. The food was fantastic. My bed was beautifully comfortable and there where some lovely touches to my room that made me feel like I was not in... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend over the weekend and I must say its one of the nicest hotels we've been to. Having never ventured to Bournemouth/boscombe way we werent entirely sure what to expect but it didn't matter as the hotel and bar area was so nice that we could have stayed there the whole time! We also went... More

We managed to get a room for one night on a bank holiday weekend by ringing the same day. Got room number 11 for £99 including breakfast. The room was in the eves, so small, but it was all detailed on the website so we knew what we were getting. The room was lovely, bit warm but opened the window,... More

I arrived very late and left very early. The staff could not have been more friendly. My room was small but perfectly formed. The beds and bedding were lovely , so was the bathroom and the shower was amazing. I only had time for cereal and toast, nice coffee though!! I wish I could have eaten off the menu because... More

The Urban Beach was fantastic, we would love to stay again when we get the chance. We didn't book as wanted to see the location first, we came in off the street to ask if they'd got a room, receptionist was very friendly and gave us a better room for the lower price. Room was very 'designer', bed was lovely.... More
