Reviewed March 29, 2012

Stayed here for 3 days with my girlfriend and was given a nice big bright room 9. The large bay window was a bonus. Staff were very friendly and efficeient. Food was very good.

I have stayed in a lot worse B&B in the UK but you cannot alway please everyone. Would willingly stay here again.

My friends and I all stayed here for a saturday night as we were down from London for a wedding. Although the condition was pretty ropey and the quality was quite poor it seemed bearbale given the price and location. That was all until we got home on the Sunday evening and discovered we had all been absolutely eaten alive by Bed Bugs. Given that we only slept for a couple of hours we were all riddled with bites and the beds must have been crawling.

We not cannot get through to the hotel to request a refund!

This is a small hotel but offer excellent service. All staff are most friendly. Free wifi and parking etc. Breakfast is also great with lots of choices. It's a good choice as it is within a short walking distance to town center and cliff top. Value for money. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Gervis Hotel for a long weekend. We were greeted at the door and shown to our room. The lady was very curtious & polite.It was quite large 2 single beds joined together which were very comfortable and clean with lovely clean linen too. A tv which only shows channels 1 - 5 , A chair which had seen better days, a single wardrobe with drawers, a suit case rest and coffee making facilities. It needed a dressing table or mirror and maybe a bedside table too.

The bathroom not quite so good it was like walking into a cupboard the shower was a rubber one that attached to the taps and not shower curtain either. The sink was not very good either as when you bent down to clean you teeth you bumped your head on the shelf.It also need to be sealed. Bath was very small and I would not have dared get into it as I might not have got out? Only toiletries were supermarket hand soap. However it was clean.
Breakfast was choice of 4 cereals, juice as much toast as you required, tea& coffee 1 rasher of bacone 1 sausage 1 fried egg 1/2 a tomato 1 spoon of baked beans all piping hot too. We chatted with Alan during breakfast and he seemd very nice.
The lounge area was a bit dire at one end of the room beds matresses & other furniture was being stored while the settees were comfortable the coffee table was marked and the tv again only had 5 channels
All in all were enjoyed our stay but we do feel improvement is needed and I hope they take out comments on board.

My husband and I and our 2 babies stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending my friend's wedding. Our family room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and informative. The cooked breakfast was very good.The location is fantastic. About 2 mins from the cliff top and our children had great fun on the beach. We would love to stay here again.

Room Tip: Family room 10 is large and very nice

Had an enjoyable stay in Bournemouth at the Gervis Court Hotel. Breakfast was served between 8:15 to 9:00 which is not everybody’s choice of timing but it seemed to accommodate most people. Full English breakfast was great and tasty.

Alan, the owner chatted with us for ages about cars and bikes which he is genuinely passionate about. He mentioned that the Sunday classic car pier meeting which we enjoyed. We also overheard his discussion when he had, to ask some pikey types to leave the premises as they were very disruptive toward other guests. What strange fellows. I don’t envy his job!

One of our rooms was slightly small but clean and tidy with clean crisp linen. Ours likewise was enormous(room 10). There is a relaxing garden to read in and enjoy the sunshine.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and we will be back in October for our BIC concert.

If you like cold showers this is the place for you. Hotel owner unreasonable and could not see what the problem was with this! Read all terrible reviews before booking in this place as it is all true. Why some people go into the hospitality business baffles me!
