“a hotel which caters for all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Just back from our 8 day stay having travelled from the North West. A good journey down and a very quick and efficient service by the friendly staff on reception and a journey in the lift to our room. The lift has to be the smallest it is possible to be legal but just added to the overall fun to be had at this hotel. Room was at the front of the hotel and was surprisingly quiet considering its position. Kept clean and tidy and coffee sachets topped up regularly. Bathroom adequate but water pressure could have been better.
Meals in the dining room were nice and generally of a good standard. Served very efficiently by the hard working staff who stayed behind when our coach broke down on the Isle of Wight which was much appreciated by us all. Entertainment was very good and the lounge area was very spacious so no feeling of being cramped.
Would recommend this hotel if you want to stay somewhere where the staff definitely go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Just got back with my sister from our 1st trip with Shearings holidays. We went for 8 days and cannot fault this trip at all. We got picked up from Sheffield by a feeder coach to Woodall services where we met our Shearing coach our driver Micheal was brilliant. Arrived at the hotel where check in was fast and efficient. Our room was very spacious with 2 single beds, wardrobe, dressing table, bedside table and 2 chairs, the bathroom was also very spacious. We over looked the coach parking and outdoor pool. There was a good choice at both breakfast and evening meal, the waiting on staff work very hard, our waiter Csaba was very efficient and helpful. The hotel is very clean and cannot see what people have to complain about. Our room was cleaned daily and had 2 lots of clean towels. Cannot comment on the entertainment as we did not watch any. The trips that were included in the price were very good 2 full days and 1 half day were included with optional trips that you paid for. Our driver went out of his way to show us places of interest and gave lots of commentary. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the beach down a zig zag path, Bournemouth town is 20 minutes stroll away and Boscombe 15 minutes walk. There are lots of shops in Bournemouth which also has a good bus service.

Room Tip: Higher rooms overlooking the pool are good, room 309 is big. The are also 2 rooms with a balcony.

We needed a hotel with close proximity to the beach as we were exhibiting at the Bournemouth Wheels Festival in May. A smart and clean hotel close to the clifftop and beach but set back a little for improved peace and quiet. Reception staff welcoming and attentive, as were all the other staff. Very relaxed atmosphere put us at ease immediately.

Visited this hotel on a Shearings 8day break had a great time, the hotel was very nice, the staff were very helpful and the dining room staff were very good, we had room 208 it is very small but ok the only minus is not enough room for your clothes in this room but we made the best of it.

Stayed at this hotel in March with Shearings. Very comfortable. The food was excellent and the staff very good. Entertainment in the evening was a quiz, bingo and speciality acts. My husband and I would definitely go again.

We enjoy our visits to the Bay Majestic. The hotel itself is gradually being updated. The room we had on the first floor had adequate space for clothes and other belongings. There was only one drawer, but the new-style wardrobe had shelves as well as hanging space. The en-suite was usable, but the shower cubicle was very small - about two feet square. The door could only open about halfway, so more generously proportioned guests may well have a problem accessing the shower. However, the water was always hot. The bed was comfortable and there was a flat screen TV with all the Freeview channels.

Reception staff were all very helpful, and were quick to arrange for us to have an extra pillow, and also a supply of coffee, tea and milk when the room attendant forgot to leave us any one morning.

The food was also good, and the restaurant staff were hard-working and helpful. We found the portions of food to be sufficient, but we noticed that if guests asked for more vegetables, or larger portions at breakfast, the staff were willing to oblige.

There was entertainment each evening and a quiz, plus bingo. However, no bingo on Sunday.

Parking spaces can be pre-booked for £5 a night. However, if you visit the hotel just for a weekend, bear in mind that there is no charge for parking in Derby Road and some nearby roads after 5pm on Friday until 9am on Monday. We arrived just after 1pm and paid just £2 for the four hours parking until 5pm. Just ensure that you move your car before 9am on Monday morning!

Buses run from near the end of Derby Road, towards Bournemouth, Poole and beyond to the west and Boscombe and Christchurch to the east. Those who enjoy a walk can access the east cliff by turning left out of the hotel, heading to the mini roundabout and walking through a short alleyway. It takes about 20-25 minutes to walk into Bournemouth if you can walk at a reasonable pace.

Hi Christopher M
Thanks for your review I am pleased to see you enjoyed your time with us and made use of most of our facilities. The pool is open now; I went in it last week for the first time this year and as it’s an outdoor pool I can confirm it should only be used by the brave until the weather warms up a bit. Its still a sun trap and the loungers make it a lovely spot for some sun bathing. We hope to see you again soon
