I had booked a coach trip with my husband and his brother. After reading the reviews of this hotel, I would have cancelled if I could have. However along we went and I must admit, because I was expecting so little, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the food wasn't bad and the shower, besides being tiny, had... More

Staff not helpful, room smelt of stale smoke, no hot water in the morning, half a curtain and half a screen door in the shower (!) and generally tired looking all over. Great location near the beach, but that's about it for positivity.

My partner and I stayed here on a Friday night. We had a couple drinks before going out for a family meal elsewhere and the drinks are extremely expensive. Even during "happy hour" between 6-10pm the drinks were £5-6 each. After the meal we came back and had a few drinks in our room. We left the room to go... More

Absolutely awful hotel. I've never written a bad review until today. The Britannia Hotel in Bournemouth really is a pit. Booked via Booking.com and the room pictures showed that the rooms were bright, modern and clean. The reality of room 208 was the smell of what smelled like it was a home for the unwashed. Disgusting. Dated bathroom with a... More
