We had the pleasure of staying at this hotel in April. We secured a fantastic priced deal through Travelzoo and I will be going back in the next couple of months.We had a large room, overlooking the sea. Beautifully positioned for the beach and ample free car parking. The evening meal was excellent and chocolates on arrival a nice touch....

This hotel is well located for town and beach being just 15 minutes or so walk. Almost all staff are very friendly and helpful. This is particularly applicable to the restaurant staff who are superb. The regular reception staff are also excellent. The exception is the back office lady acting as receptionist who was efficient but not particularly friendly or...

A grand hotel in a great location. Booked the rooms for March and got them cheaper because would have scaffolding around them. When we got there the scaffolding had gone so good price. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast ok. Nice big room but needed updating and re decorating although friends we traveled with room was much better....

Although this is a well positioned hotel with good facilities and a proud history as one of Bournemouth's leading hotels, it is easy to lose reputation by lack of attention to detail, which was what marred our experience. In the bathroom there was a stained and dirty towel. In the drawers in the bedroom - various items including a used...

We booked an evening meal at the The Carlton Hallmark Hotel as we needed to be in Bournemouth for the evening. We could not have been looked after better, the team in the restaurant were very welcoming and attentive. The food was good quality with large portions. We are now thinking of booking a large family party at the Carlton...

I lived in Bournemouth in the 60's when the Carlton was the "top" hotel. Had to visit for a couple of days so looked forward to staying in this hotel for a short break. Unfortunately, the hotel has seen better days and is now in need of updating. The rooms are large but the furniture is old and dull; we...

Staff are really friendly. The location couldn't have been better. The family room we had was a very generous size .We enjoyed having a swimming pool on site. The outside one although not open yet , looks really nice for the summer. We would recommend this hotel to families. We had a lovely stay thank you.

Having previously phoned to request a bigger room due to my recovery from surgery, we were allocated room 130 on the 1st floor. This turned out to be a huge room with a large bathroom. This suited our needs most admirably. But just one drawback. On our last night there was a continual whirring fan like noise which came on...
