We've just returned home after spending 2 nights at the Urban beach hotel- and felt we had to write a review as our stay was brilliant. We arrived at the hotel to be met by two friendly members of staff, who checked us in quickly and showed us to our room, even offering to help carry my suitcase. The room...

Friendly welcome and a roomy room with a great bed and bath/shower. The staff are efficient and well trained and seem genuinely happy to help with everything. (They even passed the restaurant test - not being sniffy when we asked to share one of the massive plates of fish and chips). A tiny bit London-priced, but the all-round experience is...

I had stayed here before and went away feeling disappointed with a number of aspects, mostly was unimpressed with the room, it's facilities and the value for money for the price paid. When it came to staying in the area again, I thought it was perhaps worth a try since most of the reviews here are glowing - perhaps I...

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in, everything about this place is fantastic, the staff are friendly the food is good and the rooms are very well furnished. With it being only 5 minutes from the beach you couldn't ask for more, I will certainly be using the hotel when I'm in the Bournemouth area again

Dropped in for 1 night on way back form Heathrow, managed to get the last available room which was well appointed and comfortable. Nice bathroom and toiletries. The bedroom was above the bar/restaurant which initially had me worried but the staff were rigid about last orders/closing time and there was no disturbance at all. Excellent restaurant food, and a buzzy...

Stayed over the bank holiday weekend. It is a great location in terms of being less than 10 mins to the beach and boscombe pier is nice now with there sister venue urban reef being a great place.
