Great beds and very nice if you get a Sea View Room. We've stayed twice now and the rooms are very clean . Could do with a bit of a spruce up though , lots of parts of the Hotel and Rooms look a little tired . Maybe Hallmark have started as the outside is clad in Scaffolding. We'll be...

Perfectly charming hotel. My seaview room was very nice and spacious. Staff were all attentive and friendly. Location is in the centre which makes it perfect. All to my expectations. I would never go to another hotel in Bournemouth provided this hotel has vacancy I simply stepped back in time very pleasently. Semih Güleçyüz

We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast deal via Travelzoo for my birthday. This included wine and chocolates on arrival and late checkout. We were contacted before our stay to advise us of building work and scaffolding on site. We were a little disappointed but the work did not affect our stay and we could still see the sea from...

We were relocated to the Carlton because of heating issues at the Hallmark East Cliff. Our booking was for a sea-view with balcony but because the Carlton is undergoing renovation and has scaffolding the balconies are closed. We were told about the scaffolding but not that we would not be able to access the balcony. If I had been told...

Went for an engagement party here was nice size hall for it, but the last order was 12 o'clock and they didn't accept card payments only cash unless we left the room and went to other bar. And the measurements was ridiculous, I ordered a single vodka and Coke, there was a dribble in it might as well of been...

We have stayed at the hotel several times under Menzies ownership. We arrived to find the whole place, back and front covered in scaffolding, but to be fair we were warned about this when booking, although I did not see much evidence of any discount offered as a result of restricted views around scaffolding poles. Whilst our room was nice...
