Nearly two years since we last stayed here and pleased to report absolutely no drop in quality. Ideal location to crash after a gig at Bournemouth O2 Academy. Room comfortable and well equipped, staff friendly and efficient. So relaxing sitting in the enclosed terrace during a rainstorm, enjoying the individually heated seats. All meals amazing, the British Non-Nachos are a...

The room we had was beautiful & comfortable. The only problem was that it is at the front of the hotel where the smokers come out & we couldn't have our window open because of the noise. We were also there on the live music night which doesn't finish until 11 so if you want to be asleep early, maybe...

We went for dinner at Urban Beach last night and the food, service and atmosphere were exceptional! There were meant to be 12 in our party but due to unforeseen circumstances there ended up being only 3 of us. Nothing was too much trouble and we ended up being seated on a nicer cosier table. All of the staff were...

My friend and I had been out cycling on a bitterly cold and foggy morning and we were desperate for somewhere to warm up with a good coffee. We found Urban Beach and were soooo pleased with our find. We wanted to sit somewhere where we could see our bikes outside and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. One...

I love going to Urban Beach for many reasons; the food is great, the atmosphere is relaxed and cosy and the staff are friendly and attentive. I have NEVER stayed in the hotel due to living in Bournemouth, however if the accommodation is anywhere close to the standard of the restaurant I'm sure it's well worth a stay! Urban beach...

Went there for a three course meal just before Christmas. We had a large group with us and this was the second time we had been there. Unfortunately, our second visit we were not impressed with the service or the food. It was tasteless and over priced. To add to this drinks were really expensive, £28 for a bottle of...

So how many times have you eaten out and selected 'home cooked' or 'thrice cooked' chips from the menu and been bitterly disappointed ??? Well for the first time in my life I've eaten somewhere that's pulled it off ! Amazing, crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy in the middle. That's worth 5ive stars alone. I'd class this a...
