Attracted to good rate of £60 a night which did not include breakfast, paid an extra £5 for parking. I needed to eat dinner and was quoted £30 for dinner which sounded like a set menu price( starter, main and dessert) however I realised later after observing another person at

We were quite disappointed with this visit. The room was quite dark and dingy, even the tablecloth was brown. The staff were efficient enough but showed no interest towards us as guests. They did ask once if everything was alright but apart from that we didn't see them. The

We just needed to get away again to relax, and the Miramar was the perfect place to do just that. As always the staff made us very welcome and were extremely helpful. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The food was the usual high standard. The snow hit us on the

Is the car park secure?
No more or less so than most hotels in Bournemouth. IF you have a flashy expensive car best to hope you can get a space in the newer parking area that is out of sight of the road. BUT for many reasons the town is not what it was & property & personal security is much more uppermost in my mind on the few occasions I now visit this once delightful resort.

I believe smart casual is the normal dress code, when we stayed the restaurant was under redevelopment so we did not eat in the replacement rooms as they were quiet underwhelming! cheers

You have to be a bit careful here. We booked 6 months in advance and paid extra for a deluxe seaview. Unfortunately we were given a poky little room with cobwebs in the windows, a window that didn't open, a rattling door and a filthy bathroom-we have previously stayed in standard doubles here that were bigger and more luxurious. The reception staff were very unhelpful but the manager moved us to another room after a couple of nights and refunded 3 nights of extda supplement. I believe that one of the reception staff allocated this inferior room to us because I upset her previously when I expressed the opinion that the hotel was not the same since particular staff had left. It was a special occasion for us and was spoilt by the unprofessional pettiness of one member of staff. If in doubt, speak to David Bailey, the manager.

"I don't know about other rooms but our room was larger and comfortable."
"If you're prepared to pay the extra, go for a front facing room with a balcony."
"Try and get their sea view rooms which have been upgraded"
"We were given a free upgrade to a sea view room which was very spacious and quiet."
"Don’t know about the hotel"
