  • Group of friends

    Our room had french doors which lead onto a private terrace - we did not expect this so it was a lovely surprise and made a perfect spot for our group to get together and have a glass of wine with the view of the sea.

    The service and food in the restaurant. The bar manager was extremely rude and the service very slow. There was a long queue to check-out which meant we arrived at the restaurant at 11.10am - ten minutes too late for the breakfast menu. The staff would not accommodate this and allow us to order from the breakfast menu. Instead we ordered from the main menu. After waiting for over 30 minutes, the food arrived and we were extremely disappointed. Some of the group ordered beans on toast which was a tiny dipping pot of beans and two small slices of stale baguette! The price was £4.95. Absolutely outrageous. One friend was served a pot of tea but it only had hot water in the tea pot. Such a shame because we loved the hotel but the food and service in the restaurant was far below satisfactory. I would recommend the hotel but advise people to steer clear of the food.

    It has a good location and the common areas are nice. breakfast was nice.

    It was way overpriced for the standard of the hotel. The room was ok, but just ok. The mini bar had been removed. the sky channels were not enabled. Parking is expensive too.

  • Older travelers

    Location. Old slightly faded charm

    Breakfast!!! Ihave stayed several times before & always looked forward to breakfast as a highlight of our stay-no more! Since the takeover by Brittania from De Vere the standard has dropped & will look elsewhere when next we stay in Bournemouth.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, the facilities were fantastic, the location was perfect, and the hotel was beautifully presented and clean.

    I have only 1 complaint which was that we paid for a double room and when we arrived the beds were 2 twin beds pushed together. As a young couple we dont really want to sleep in seaparate beds and they werent even sturdy as they were on wheels they rolled around everywhere which was quite dissapointing.

  • Single

    The staff at reception were friendly and check in was easy

    I went to run a bath and the water was yellow, and at breakfast it took 20 minutes for me to be served any tea or coffee

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Price was good. Rooms were comfortable.

    Breakfast was poor. Overcooked food and sloppy presentation.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Convenient location, sea views

    Car Parking - expensive. Slight shabbiness - curtains hard to shut, windows rattling, shower ineffective. £2 Charge for settling by credit card an appalling cheek, credit card happily taken (demanded !) as a guarantee of payment - if I paid by cheque or cash it would cost you a lot of time to bank and time to clear. If it is your preferred method of payment, please don't charge extra; if it is not, please make that very clear when booking.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The package I booked was dinner and bed and breakfast. I had not booked a table for dinner prior to arriving. When checking in the receptionist was rude and made me feel stupid that I had not booked a table. Also there was a filthy wet towel left in the bathroom. I would not recommend this hotel.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Lovely view

    Could do with more staff in restaurant seemed to be a bit disorganised

  • Single
    10.0

    The Hotel was very clean,the staff were very friendly, the views from the rear garden were fantastic. Overall 10/10

  • Couple
    4.6

    The bell desk was very professional. Good location.

    Hotel rooms are extremely old. The bathroom toilet was leaking and regardless of me reporting it, it was not resolved and the hotel did not even offer a change of room. The steamroom is in a poor state with 2 broken seats and you need to sit for half an hour before it actually works. Be aware that it is not £15 per day for parking but £20.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The cost of parking at £20 p/n is far too expensive and the room was rather small!

  • Older travelers
    9.4

    My first time staying at the De Vere and I will stay again. Staff so friendly and could not do enough to make my stay so comfortable.

    Enjoyed good service and spendid food.

    Jaded in parts, especially furniture in main lounge. Parking arrangements difficult when travelling with pet - and expensive.
