Great location, very comfortable room and a good size. The quality of the food at beakfast was very good. The only gripe that would maybe stop me staying again would be the expensive charge for the car parking.
Spent 3 nights at the Ocean View Hotel. Good big room with sea view. Hotel furnishing and décor is a little tired but cleanliness is excellent, hotel staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Quiet hotel, no excessive noise. Very good breakfast buffet and excellent bar food and evening meals at the next door sister hotel, The Cottonwood. Only one little moan - the WF was intermittent.
We stay here twice a year. I write before arrival asking for a certain room which we usually get. However the day before trip hotel rand to say this room was twin and I had booked a double. I rang hotel and they had made a mistake and I had booked a twin.( Mother & me) but the room we asked for had already been allowcated.
The twin we got was smaller but still plenty of room but as it was over one of the dance halls quite noisy as there was a rock & roll group in that room straight underneath.
Voted “the happiest place in the UK” in a 2007 poll, Bournemouth is a rapidly growing coastal resort town, with 11 km of sandy beaches. A vibrant town center, picturesque gardens, and sightseeing cruises from Bournemouth Pier add to its appeal. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde here, and the town figures prominently in many of Thomas Hardy’s classic novels.
