“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

The hotel is extremely nice and the location is fantastic with a sea view. At my request, a suitable room was allocated to us next to the lift on first floor as my wife has mobility problems. The room was spacious and relaxing. Beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was interesting. Very friendly staff throughout the hotel. Parking facility is available. Would certainly consider staying again.

My school friends and I wanted a couple of nights and achieved a special deal, apart from a slight hitch with the rooms on arrival( which was sorted within minutes of phoning reception) the two night break was good. The rooms are well appointed and our room had a balcony with a sea view, the other two in my party did not have a balcony but still had a side sea view. The dinner was excellent on both evenings. If any criticism was to be made it was the choice of fruit at breakfast and the absence of small plates near the bread/rolls. That said all staff were very polite and friendly. When we checked out of our room, we decided as the sun was shining to stay and relax having had a busy couple of days. We sat on the terrace with a good view of the sea, and ordered lunch too.nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

I've stayed here twice whilst on business, the hotel offers tremendous value, courteous staff and fantastic views from the balcony rooms. Secure free parking and central location just add to the many benefits.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is sea facing and preferably with a balcony or french doors.

Was sceptical after reading previous reviews before staying at this hotel however it exceeded our expectations. The staff could not have been more helpful especially catering for our 11 month old baby. Could not fault the hotel at all, the overall cleanliness was good and there was plenty of areas to sit and relax especially the lovely balcony overlooking the beach. It made our stay in Bournemouth very enjoyable.. Would definately stay here again.

My Wife and I were guests of the hotel on Saturday 31st May 2014. We hosted a wedding reception for 40 guests in the Ocean room, overlooking the bay which has its own private balcony. The food we ordered was delicious and of high quality. The staff could not do enough to help or make our day the best it could be.

Afterwards the evening reception moved downstairs, into the Garden Room with its access to the patio and pool area. The rooms, private bar and smaller function room were very good, and adequately accommodated our - odd guests.

Staying the night, the bed was extremely comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was included and was very nice, tastey and plentiful.

Room Tip: Excellent value and venue for a wedding.

Went there for a wedding and the gig was good. Nibbles good at evening reception. A Clean place but oh goodness the price of the drinks. Twenty quid for a bottle of very average wine. You can do better in Bournemouth I am sure.

We stayed in the Menzies this week, and generally it was exactly what we needed. It's location is great for the beach and the city centre.
I would say that it does need a little tidying up in places. The bathrooms feel a little tired and the shower in our room certainly lacked power.
The bed was very comfortable, and the room was light and airy. All hotels like this, could easily improve the tea and coffee offerings, and the cooked breakfast, even at 9am felt like it had been standing around a bit.
However this said, the price was very acceptable, so I suppose you get what you pay for.
