Check in was painful due to someone new on the desk who didnt know what they were doing which is understandable but when it takes 10 minutes for someone else to come and help it becomes laughable. The room was ok but the issue came in the morning when I went for breakfast 17 minutes before the end of the published time for breakfast to be told that it had been quiet so everything had been put away and I couldnt get breakfast. Shambles. Parking was £12 for the night. Never again

Dear Rx8231, Thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Bournemouth following your recent stay with us. May we apologise for the delay at check in due to a new member of the team unsure what to do and another team member coming later to assist the new team member. This is not normal practice at the hotel and we are sorry that you had to wait. Our breakfast times are 6.30am-9.30am Monday to Friday and 7.30am-10.30am Weekends and Bank Holidays. We are sorry to learn that during your stay the buffet was cleared early. This again is not normal practice at the hotel and our buffet is always left till at least 15 minutes after the set breakfast times for guests to enjoy. As per 99% of hotels in Bournemouth we charge for car parking. This ensures every guest has a parking space for the duration of their stay with us. Our prices are on par or lower than our hotel competitors. We are sorry that you feel you would not return to us in the future. If you would like to discuss your review further please do not hesitate to contact me directly at the hotel. Kind Regards Tim Seward Operations Manager

The room is quite nice and it's got the executive floor so that is really nice. The location of the hotel is a bit far from the city centre and the beaches. The breakfast is average and there is a massive queue at breakfast so if you are in a hurry it is probably best to skip the breakfast.

Dear Benlee998, Thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Bournemouth following your recent stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed the executive room. We do ask our guests on check in when they would like breakfast between times served to always have a steady flow of people going through our breakfast buffet. We are sorry this was not the case during your stay with us. We do hope we can welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kind Regards Tim Seward Operations Manager

I've stayed in many HI Hotels over the years, and this one is probably the best. The staff are friendly, professional and the cleanliness of the hotel excellent. Location is perfect for a wander into the centre/along the front - and close to the Uni accommodation if you have to drop or visit your wayward sons or daughters..Breakfast excellent and good quality. The relaxed informal lounge is great for a drink after dinner out. Can't comment on the evening meals as we ate out. Parking is secure and plentiful. Overall a great Holiday Inn and congrats to the local management there for running it well. 5*

The staff are the friendliest I've come across. They went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. I would like to especially thank Ricardo and Sergio who were on the night shift and looked after me when I stayed.

Last time we stayed at this hotel it was operated under a different Hotel chain. As before the location is perfect to discover Bournemouth at its best. Just a short walk to the pier, the gardens, the cinema and only a scroll away to the shops, bars and clubs. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast buffet (for an additional charge) and parked our car in the hotel car park (also for an additional charge). There is no guaranteed car park space and from previous experience I’m sure that during high season it might be difficult to find an empty spot. The Hotel staff was very friendly. As a contribution to our environment, the hotel gives extra member points if you don’t need your room cleaned during your stay. Will definitely stay again in this hotel. Thanks for having made our stay a comfortable one.

Dear Nicole_A_Travels, Thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Bournemouth following your recent stay with us. The hotel was acquired in 2018 and was refurbished and re branded as a Holiday Inn in late 2019. We are pleased that the hotel was perfectly situated for you for visiting Bournemouth and surrounding areas. We do aim to accommodate every guests car in a space on site during their stay with us. As part of the IHG standards we offer guests the option to become an IHG member. Part of this scheme is green stay which give guests extra points when staying more than 1 night when not having room service. We are pleased you took us up on this . We would be delighted to welcome you back and we are pleased we made your stay a comfortable one. Kind Regards Tim Seward Operations Manager

I stayed here along with 15 of my golfing friends for our "mini tour" in late September this year The hotel is well situated, with only a short walk into town which of course has plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from What struck me most upon arrival was how clean and fresh the hotel looked. My room was spacious, clean and well maintained. My bed was extremely comfortable which allowed me to have a great night sleep both nights In the morning you have the opportunity to have a hearty breakfast. There's plenty of choice both hot and cold Above all the staff were brilliant from the cleaners to management. Quite simply they were spot on I would not hesitate in recommending Holiday Inn Bournemouth

this was my fault. i wasn’t sure that our flight would arrive on time, much less how far i would want to drive after flying through the night. bournemouth became the unexpected stopping spot. the holiday inn was conveniently located and well-reviewed. my mistake. the room price was okay, until i realized i hadn’t filtered the search for places with a free breakfast and free parking. the parking charge was only 12 pounds, but the lot is terrible unless you have a very small car. the breakfast was more expensive, but it was worth it. the folks in the kitchen do a very nice job preparing a complete english breakfast. the bar, on the other hand, was a small disaster. very limited selection: a couple scotches and i believe no bourbons. rum was better. i don’t recall about others. the room was small. there weren’t any complimentary shampoo or conditioner options available. desk attendants suggested using shower gel for shampoo. no wash cloths of course. there was nothing really terrible. i know the desk folks wanted to be helpful, but i would not stay there again.

We spent one night en route to London. It's what you'd expect from Holiday Inn - efficient, clean, comfortable, good size rooms, in good location; precise yet a bit surgical service. Parking on site was not cheap, and the parking spot were not easy to access in our opinion. Breakfast was also pricey, but overall good - although with a long queue for hot food (must have been the Sunday morning).

Dear silviasfamilytravels, Thank you for taking the time to review Holiday Inn Bournemouth following your recent stay with us. It is lovely to read that you found the staff efficient, room comfortable, clean and a good size and the hotel in a perfect location for you while visiting Bournemouth. Due to the size of the breakfast buffet we do serve the hot food which does keep the flow of people moving in the buffet area. As you mention it does get busy especially at weekends We hope to welcome you back to Holiday Inn Bournemouth in the near future. Kind Regards Tim Seward Operations Manager

We stayed for 3 days and we would definitely stay again. Great service. Nothing to much trouble. We had a problem with our air-con one evening. Straight away two fans were brought to our room. Next day it was fixed...no trouble at all. Staff were so polite and helpful. A big mention to...Saif,Murad,Maria,Tim,Alfie,Jithin and Abit. Who were wonderful. Thanks to all..
