We stayed at The Yenton during the bank holiday week. The hotel is easy to find, fantastically located just a short walk from the beach, pier and other Bournemouth attractions and is a wonderful hotel.

We stayed at The Yenton using a Dealcloud voucher and Matt & Tom couldn't have been more helpful trying to accommodate dates to suit us for our stay. We opted to upgrade to the Garden Room as it looked so beautiful and we weren't disappointed. The room was in the annexe and was spacious, airy, clean and modern with patio doors out on to the most immaculate garden.

The room offered everything you'd need for your stay, towels, additional bedding (although could have done with another pillow), toiletries, coffee and tea making facilities, kitkats (yum!) and a TV.

The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order so was fresh and tasted delicious. I'm a fussy eater and nothing seemed too much trouble.

Would wholeheartedly recommend The Yenton to anyone looking for somewhere lovely to stay in Bournemouth

Room Tip: Ask for the Garden Room, it's a little more expensive but totally worth it.

We had our civil ceremony at the Yenton in April and cannot praise the Yenton and everything they did for us enough. The service we received was fantastic, and their experience in organising such events was obvious in their ideas and suggestions that really gave the day a great twist.

On the day, Matt and Thom did an exceptional amount to make sure that everything went to plan-both behind the scenes and front of house, and A LOT of guests commented on how well everything had gone. They also helped tremendously in preparation, and even put the cake together!!

The food was exceptional too, and we even met the chef who had prepared a !fantastic! meal and evening buffet, to shake his hand afterwards.

All in all, we can thoroughly recommend the Yenton hotel for your wedding day or civil ceremony. Thank you to all the Staff there!!

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite was brand new when we went! The first to sleep there was magnificent, but it'...

We were greeted on first day by "Hello, what surname is it", with no introductions whatsoever and swiftly told room number and brief instruction as to how to locate it. Not the best welcomes we have ever received.
Although room appeared generally 'tidy', we weren't too pleased with the dust covered lamps and also dust on bed side tables. Pine drawer front panels coming off their dowels as we tried to open them(!!) and the bed was not the most comfortable.
This seemed to be the first hotel we have stayed in which failed to provide change of sheets/ bedding - the duvet having ink(?) stain. Kindly provided with hand/ shower wash but no complimentary shampoo; biscuits after the first night stay not replenished either (which may not seem significant but this again is a first for a hotel we've stayed in).
Telephone in room did not work and although advised one of the gentleman of this at reception who reassured it would be looked into, nothing was followed up.
I'm sure the management team will have their reasons/ excuses, but these seem very basic issues for a hotel.
On the positives, we felt the service provided at breakfast (particularly by the female member of staff on the first day) was exceptional and the food was well cooked, but again, on the second morning we had to change drink glasses as two were dirty around the rim.
I hope this review is taken on board with good spirit as clearly the hotel has many positives in respect to location, the building and the garden but, for us anyway, was let down by the reasons stated above..

Had our most recent family gathering at the Yenton Hotel, afternoon tea for fifty for my daughters and my niece and nephews First Holy Communion. It was fantastic. Matt was as always the most gracious and considerate host and Thom provided a feast of incredibly fresh sandwiches, light fluffy scones , scrumptious cup cakes and the worlds most incredible chocolate cake. The teapots were promptly refilled when empty and my friends and family all felt well and truly spoilt. The Yenton Hotel is a great venue with a lovely function room opening on to an enchanted garden, it is amazing, a riot of colour and a true delight to be in. Matt and Tom have again provided an excellent service, my husband and I had our wedding reception at the Yenton, we've had two funeral teas, a 70th birthday and now a communion party every event has been perfect and stress free. Thank you so much guys, the kids and I always walk away with yet more fabulous memories to treasure.

My husband and I got married at the hotel on the 26.04.13 and right from the first meeting we felt so welcome. The gardens were perfect for the ceremony, the conservatory was so light and spacious for the wedding breakfast and the whole hotel just felt warm and welcoming. The staff could not do enough for us and Matt and Thom were amazing. The food was perfect - all of it. I was very impressed with the breakfast - the vegi choices, faultless. Everything was taken care of throughout the day - I had nothing to worry about with Matt on hand. The Honeymoon suite was amazing - so much room to get ready in, and overlooking the garden so I could see the guests arriving. We have also been for the afternoon tea - and I am looking forward to trying them again this year - the homemade cakes are really very special.
My husband and I are looking forward to an excuse to have another event at the hotel - I can not recommend them enough!!!

We stayed 2 nights to attend a wedding. We had a double room in the main building. The room was comfortable and the bathroom fairly modern and clean. We arrived late and thirsty, so went down to the bar. There was quite a good selection, but no single malts! Breakfast was very good, with a great veggie choice. The staff were very friendly and Matt spent some time making sure that we knew the way to walk down to the church for the wedding the next day. The reception was at the Yenton and it was perfect. The hotel even organised some perfect weather! The garden is lovely and ideal for spending time in.
