I have just spent a couple of nights at the Anglo Swiss Hotel and was happy overall with the standard of accommodation. I was happy, as a single traveller, that accommodation is charged on a room rate and there were no hidden supplements. I therefore booked a double room (as it was not much more expensive than a single one).
Maybe they thought I was a hotel inspector as I was pleasantly surprised to have a very large, bright, recently refurbished room with a decent sized, well fitted bathroom with a window. My only comments are that the bed was not particularly comfortable and the foam pillows were very hard. The laminate flooring in the bathroom looked a little cheap which was a shame and a blind would have been better than a net curtain at the window. The room was clean (apart from a cobweb on the bathroom ceiling) but these are only minor niggles.
The staff at reception and in the restaurant were efficient and pleasant and the food was a good standard. The hotel is well placed for the beach but is about a 15 minute walk into the centre of Bournemouth.
I would stay at this hotel again if I were to visit Bournemouth as I thought it good value for money.
