“Two night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Good location, close to the sea front, although access to the beach is down some steep steps. About 15 minute walk to High Street but need to be fit as very hilly.
Nice spacious lounge and terrace area to ground floor, with bar.
Outdoor pool and gardens, which are well groomed. Nice area to sit. Evening entertainment was to a good standard, male singer.
Good sized dining room, well laid out, tables not too close to each other.
Rooms clean and tidy, with good facilities.
Excellent food and service.
Will book again.

Room Tip: Book a sea front room or lower ground floor with own terrace overlooking garden and sea.

Dear Geoffrey G,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. There are buses which leave from just around the corner of the Savoy for those amongst us, who are less fit. I'm happy that you enjoyed the hotels entertainment and facilities, and enjoyed your two nights away with us. We do hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind regards

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the Savoy. We had a lovely room and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in an ideal position - close to the beach but far enough away as not to be noisy.. The breakfast was fine although we did prefer the buffet option which we had last time we stayed. I must admit that the portions at the evening meal were a little small but were adequate.I was a little disappointed that my husband couldn't celebrate his birthday with a glass of prosecco at dinner however, as it was only sold by the bottle.
We asked what the ground floor garden rooms were like as I may take my elderly father later in the year. We were given the key of one of the rooms to have a look on our own. Very helpful. We will return.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are good. We stayed in 309 which was lovely.

Dear RandG1978,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and that you came back for a second visit. I do agree that we are ideally situated in Bournemouth not too noisy but close enough to enjoy the beach and town centre. I'm happy to hear you found the staff helpful and were shown the ground floor garden rooms as these are lovely rooms opening out to the gardens. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards

Stayed at the Savoy for 5 days with Shearings, excellent value for money. After reading some of the above reviews thought I must have stayed in a different hotel. Hotel has a fantastic location, sea views, garden, friendly staff, spacious lounge and although bedroom wasn't overlooking the gardens it was clean tidy and spacious. Will go back and stay at this hotel

Stayed 4 nights in August . Breakfast fine, dinner extremely poor. Poor choice with second rate ingredients and small portions. The garden is very poorly maintained. Poor enteryainment in the evening with a large gap between dinner and the start of the entertainment .People bored with wait maybe would like a quiz or bingo.

Room Tip: Choose an updated room for which they will charge you . Pay for parking at 5 pounds a day is bit ex...

The whole experience staying in this hotel was awful. The staff were rude, the breakfast was disgusting, I couldn't even drink the coffee. I was literally waiting for the elevator for ten minuets. This hotel is like a jazzed up old peoples home. We were never told it was £5 parking per day and it was not on the web page. This hotel is awful, I would go anywhere but here.

Dear tanyaw,

It is disappointing to read your review. We do cater mainly for the over 50s with many returning guests who enjoy the fact we are not full of younger persons wanting to party. Your comments regarding the staff and food have been passed on. We do charge £5.00 per night for parking should we have no spaces available then off street parking is available at a charge.

Kind regards

This is my third visit to the Savoy. I always pay for a superior room, as they are large and have lovely views over the sea. My room was very large, king size bed. Bathroom was large and very clean. The restaurant is light and airy. Breakfast is part buffet and waiter service. Dinner is all waiter service. There is a good choice on the menu. There is a small bar. Most nights there is entertainment, but I was not impressed with the singers.

I have spoken to other guests, who only paid for a standard room, and they say for what it had cost them, they were satisfied. I will definitely return to the Savoy hotel on my next visit to Bournemouth. For only a 3star hotel, I think it was very nice.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a superior room...

Not as good as you would expect to for the Savoy probably would stay there again, full of old people, duvet cover had stains on, windows where chocked shut with bits of broken plastic curtains hanging of rails.
