We took a group of visually impaired people for lunch at the Hermitage. We were very well looked after and enjoyed a really delicious lunch. Those members who were unable to walk into the gardens were free to stay in the lounge of the hotel and chat and/or have tea and coffee. This outing proved to be one of our most successful!

Room Tip: We were not resident in the hotel

Having not been to Bournemouth for twenty five years it was a surprise to find Bournemouth and the surrounding area well worth a visit. The conference centres are modern which are a big improvement since my last visit.
The hotel have excellent staff . I believe that reception staff set the tone of a hotel . Right from the front door to the bedroom staff the quality showed through.
The breakfast was superb. The bacon was the proper stuff and the whole buffet was excellent.
We had a few evening meals which were well presented with the fish dishes a speciality.
The head waiter never stopped and made sure our every need was supplied.

Room Tip: The front rooms have a great view but are too hot especially when the sun is at his best. The wind...

Just returned from our third stay at the hermitage and as usual a faultless stay again! From the Reception staff to the cleaning staff all extremely friendly and helpful. Food excellent and such a restful ambiance . Will be returning

Room Tip: For single travelers rooms 411 and 412 sea view excellent but still not enough plugs!!

We booked into this hotel very last minute and were given a wonderful sea view room! It was beautifully clean, well decorated and very comfortable. We had a brilliant sea view and enjoyed the fireworks on the pier from our grandstand view.

We had lovely clean fluffy towels and good toiletries. There was a variety of drinks on the hospitality tray and biscuits for us both which was a nice touch. Just would have liked a light by the tray as it was in a dark corner and was worried about spilling boiling water. Bedside lights were also a little inaccessible. It was great to have two chairs and a table to sit and have a cuppa and read the paper and watch the sea.

Breakfast was good with quite a variety to choose from. The hot chocolate was wonderful and they had my favourite jam which signifies to me a hotel with class! We had one evening meal in the lounge area and this was very tasty and good value for money too!

The ambience and decor in the hotel were very good and it was a very welcoming environment.

All the staff were friendly, helpful, diligent and welcoming. We have stayed in a number of hotels in Bournemouth over the years and this is one of the best we have stayed in! We will certainly stay here again.

We stayed in a family room (603) and it was like a separate flat - almost unbelievably spacious. Perfect for us.

I thought the service at breakfast was poor - none of the girls spoke English and I had to get up twice to ask for coffee (which was nice) and toast (which was stone cold). The hot breakfast selection was fine (apart from the raw sloppy scrambled egg) and the ubley yoghurt was lovely, as was the fresh fruit and juice. The only real let down was the cheap nasty pastries.

We would definitely stay here again, location is fantastic. Reception staff were very welcoming and efficient, as was the bar staff. Well done!
