“Nothing special hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Stayed 1 night on Saturday 28th June 2014 with work colleagues 2 x twin rooms, no request for breakfast. The staff were friendly to an extent. Was not happy when requested to write down and leave my card details including my security pin number with staff which in my opinion could leave me open to any would be opportunist committing fraud (in no way saying the staff are crooks). I have stayed in many hotels and have never been asked to write ALL my card details down for the hotel to keep. Previous hotels have swiped my card beforehand as a fall back if damage was made to the rooms etc. which is standard procedure in many hotels which is absolutely fine by me.
The manager insisted, that was their policy and stated "I will refund your booking if you don't and you can find another hotel but this will be difficult for you" therefore putting me in a corner.
I stood my ground writing my card details down but not my security pin number which reluctantly the duty manager agreed too.
Does anybody else consider this odd or is it just me. Am I being over sensitive?

A simple stop over with the guys, the rooms were bog standard, plenty of hot water, towels and bedding. The rooms not dirty but not exceptionally clean either. Definitely not somewhere I would have stayed with my girlfriend, but you get what you pay for, however the only noise disturbance came from inside the room from my work colleague snoring and not from the outside.

On the 31st may 2014 my partner and I held our gay wedding at the Mayfair hotel. The day was amazing and exceeded all expectations.
We started looking at wedding venues last feb, and we were won over by the hotels friendliness and professionalism. The wedding co-ordinator Soy put us both at ease and was very friendly at welcoming.she listened to all our ideas and was helpful in putting these into motion.
Leading up to the day itself Soy was only a phone call away.All staff at the hotel,from reception to bar staff always had a smile on their faces and have lovely way of making you feel you are the VIP guests.
The day itself ran like clockwork,although still feeling a relaxed atmosphere. Again, the staff were very friendly and made all of guests feel very welcome,nothing seemed too much trouble.The food was absolutely incredible and everyone (even the vegetarian guests) were extremely impressed.
A lot of our guests stayed the weekend including the night before and everyone was happy with their rooms.
We had an amazing wedding at the Mayfair and personally we would give it 5 stars for its hospitality!!thank you Soy and all staff.

Just back from our second year at the Mayfair. Our dance group spent 5 days there last week. It was lovely, all the staff were brilliant, so helpful and efficient. The food was lovely, accommodation was A1 just wish we could have stayed longer. We will definately be back again.

Room Tip: All good, lots of stairs though to the higher rooms if you dont like using the small lift.

Only stayed the one night but our room was spacious with both a double bed and single bed. Was rather a narrow corridor getting to room 12. The bedroom was clean and the bed very comfortable. Bathroom had all the facilities needed with ample towels. Morning breakfast very good. Room could have done with a bin in addition to the one in the bathroom. Would certainly be my choice of place to stay when next in Bournemouth. Great location to get to the shops and beach. Really well priced.

A lovely 2 night stay with great service & quiet comfort. The shower was powerful too -a bonus! Would definitely return & recommend. In the heart of the town centre, only minutes walk from all the bars, restaurants, shops & seaside :)
