After having read the review on booking.com stating it was doggie friendly we made our booking and headed to Bournemouth. Apart from arriving at East Overcliff Drive and seeing a "flasher" outside the Ocean View Hotel by one of those large camper vans, we headed to the hotel car park a few minutes drive from the Ocean View. Check in...

Unfortunately, even though I am sure our staff all love dogs, we never advertise ourselves as a "dog friendly" hotel and it clearly says on all our booking engines. We allow small dogs but we do not claim to...

Really friendly staff, but everything is a bit dated and worn out. Could use a bit of paint and new floors. Room was not bad, but a bit old for what you pau. Location of the hotel is great, also a nice lobby and bar

Lovely hotel, clean & tidy, friendly staff. Our room was in need of updating but had what we needed for our stay. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice. Check out 11am which is handy and leaves time after to breakfast.

Ok hotel, not what we booked at the first place but had all we needed. The bed was a bit noisy, the window in the bathroom was knocking in the wind and overall it was all a bit dated. But staff were nice.

The staff reflected the bright and beautiful setting of the Suncliff Hotel. The pool albeit not of Olympic dimensions was warm and accommodating. The evening entertainment had quality with very flexible performers who encouraged and embraced those who were so moved as to dance.......really great. The accommodation was more than adequate, clean and comfortable. Well done Suncliff.
