    the hotel saff were nice

    we were very upset to have to pay for the swimming pool and car park, the hotel should not advertise as a Hotel with swimming pool when it has a private pool next to it and expect for customer to pay extra to be able to use the pool. We are family of 5 had to booked two rooms and the price was not fair for such an outdated hotel. Out of principal I would never stay in a Britannia hotel and would not recommend it.

    Room was warm and comfortable.

    We arrived at 12.30. Could not check-in. We were told too early, so went back at 2.30.

    Very spacious and welcoming.

    The lifts were exceptionally small. I also personally feel there should be a main light in every room, the room I stayed in didnt have main central light.

    I like the location and the price was very good.

    The Wifi not working in the rooms, and this is very bad for us, since we are using internet alot.

    We got a late deal so the room was fairly inexpensive and the breakfast was very good.

    The hotel is very dated and needs refurbishing.

    I did not like anything about Britannia Bournemouth!

    The extra added costs - using a debit card, car parking, dogs. The restaurant opening times, especially breakfast finishing at 8.30 on a weekend! Far too early! The choice of food, there was only two choices when we got there at 8.30pm. The noise levels through the night. Loud music through the night and the emptying of glass containers very late at night! Overall a throughly disappointing stay! In fact we had booked two rooms for two nights but only stayed one night.

    On arrival the staff were helpful and friendly, room was nice and clean, close to town centre and amenities.

    Parking spaces were limited at the hotel and charged at £3 per day. The communal areas were a bit tired, there was a ripped leather chair in the games room that did not look too appealing! Breakfast choice was good but of fair quality. View from room was a mass of air conditioning pipes,and the bathrooms of a neighbouring hotel

    Value for money and lovely staff.

    Just the car parking situation, it made it difficult for us to go anywhere as we were worried we would not get parked again. This spoilt our stay a little as the weather was pretty poor.

    The location was great, very near bournemouth pier.

    The bed was so uncomfortable, me and my girlfriend didn`t get a wink off sleep, it was like sleeping on a piece off stone. The breakfast was ok, basic but sausages tasted horrible, those cheap ones. Also the shower was terrible, it had no door just a sheet, which let all the water on to the floor, so when I got out of the shower the floor was flooded! Could have slipped over! Overall nothing special and I would not stay there again and would not recommend anyone else to.

    It took us inly 5min to reach the seaside and probably 10 to reach some close by shops, bars and atm. The room was relatively clean but the smell coming out of the bathroom was unbearable (some sort of glue or something). Shower pressure was awesome!!! :-)

    First of all when we arrived there was no parking space to safely leave our car so we had to block others, secondly the reception staff were unable to find out booking and only after a long search (really disorganized) they sort of found us but the names printed on the reservation were hardly ours, thirdly the lift can only fit 3 regular size people without luggage!!! We booked double bedroom but the room was clearly designed for a single occupancy, in our case they only placed double bed instead of a single one (not much room to move about or to get to the bathroom! The next day was breakfast time and when we shown up in the dining area we were expecting a little more welcoming and polite stuff. We were to wait for a bit as they were "very busy" even though the place had hardly any people there. And then we were given a table which was already taken by other couple....so we found another one ourselves! Very unprofessional in our eyes! Food.....really greasy!!! Nothing except English breakfast + some cereal. The staff had to be reminded that there was no more milk, juice, eggs etc! No idea why the hotel had 3 stars!!!!! We only ended op there because everything else was fully booked, paid £200 for 2 nights!!! Would not recommend it unless you're expected to pay less than £35 per night!

    The price of the room was good but a good price is only good value if simple basic requirement are fulfilled. Except for price Nothing.

    I asked for a specific room type and the hotel accepted the request when booked. On arrival @ 1am the room specified and booked was not available. The toilet in the room could not be used, it did not work. The room was dirty and poorly maintained. Reception staff on arrival was very unhelpful (admittedly it was 1 in the morning). In the morning cleaning staff started knocking on the door at 8am (checkout time is 10am). If I had to rate my stay on a scale of 1-10 it would be --- (minus)7 and I think this rating is very generous..

    The only redeeming features of this hotel are, I feel, the position, and the 'ok' food.

    At the time we visited this hotel, it felt and looked a little tired. Staff seemed a little disinterested, even offish. The rooms were not particularly clean, the stained carpets hadn't seen a vacuum cleaner for days, dusting had been at a minimum, tea/coffee cups were not changed over the two nights we stayed and the rooms were very stuffy. There was no hot water ( only very tepid ) during our stay. The bathroom was uncomfortably small with the wash basin in the room itself. We were staying with a disabled relative and had been advised that the lift would be big enough to take a wheelchair however, this was not the case and at no time during booking were we advised that this hotel does have adapted rooms for the disabled.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    It is very nicely located to both restaurants and the beach.We travelled by train and also found this close to the hotel.It is certainly value for money.We stayed in 2010 so were very happy to return to the Britannia Bournemouth.
