Roundhouse Hotel Bournemouth
Ranked #62 of 67 Hotels in Bournemouth
Reviewed 20 December 2013

We stayed for one night recently and it was just ok. The car park has sufficient parking and costs £3.00 for 24 hours. The reception staff were friendly enough and check in was quick and efficient. Our room was relatively large with adequate things - hairdryer, tea/ coffee making facilities etc. It's all a little 1980's though. The floral tiles in the bathroom, the worn wooden furniture in the room. The old boxed TV with a remote that doesn't really work. Just a bit dated and worn. However, it served a purpose for us.
The day of check out , however, we had no hot water for a shower. Frustrating but kinda not unexpected. We all had cold strip washes and then thought we would have a breakfast at the hotel. However, we couldn't find a member of staff in the restaurant and it all became a bit complicated for my hungover brain so we just wandered off to Maccy D's for brekkie.
The location however, is spot on for this hotel and it was proper cheap.
If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere but if you want a base whilst you shop and eat within the town, then it'll do.

The room booked to stay last night was the worse room I have ever been in. It was so bad, I opted not to drink at a Christmas party, and drove home. I cannot believe the environmental health office hasn't closed this place down. I would live to know what happens on floor 5 and 6, but a lot of single women with children, young drunk lads and many more unhappy looking people got in the lift which took them to these floors. Dirty, smelly (smoke despite no smoking law) brown water from the taps, could and who knows what else. Avoid, avoid, avoid. I rated it 1 because there were no minus numbers to press.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere. I had to score sleep quality, but we packed the car and drove home!

Just got back from our works do in Bournemouth and I was as concerned as anyone would be at staying here based on the reviews on trip advisor

We arrive Saturday 7th December at 1pm and where told book in was at 3pm.

We paid and parked the car and left our bags in reception and made our way to sharkeys which is a excellent sports bar 2 mins from the hotel

12 tables, 8 screens, food and drink and we stayed there till 8pm when we left

The hotel was purely a place to sleep and for that I can't fault it

It's an old hotel, chairs , decor, TVs, etc are all dated but, and it's a massive but, the location is 10/10

It's minutes from everywhere , bars,restaurants and the sea front

If you've had a great night out, like we did, then noises don't matter as your knackered and too drunk to notice

So to summarise , it's dated, it's old but it's location is excellent


Not the worst place I've stayed in, not by a long shot but it's not somewhere I'd want to stay more than a night

If it was updated I'm guessing the prices would go up so look on this place as a bonus


I'd stay there again but not for longer than a day/night

We had breakfast at the olive cafe 5 minutes away which was lovely

Arrived with a party on a Tinsel and Turkey coach tour. What a disappointment. The festive atmosphere was nil. Yes, we had a buffet turkey dinner - no decorations, music, fun! After dinner there was bingo and a quiz, this was the entertainment EVERY night. Our last night there was supposed to be a New Years Eve party - bingo and a quiz again. The dining room was more like a canteen, soul less. The bar area where everyone was supposed to sit during the evening was freezing cold, we were told that the system had broken down and that they were waiting for word from HQ as to what to do about it! The food, on the whole, was good although unimaginitive and could have been hotter. On the plus side, the room was nice - warm and cosy. The shower also was good. Not a hotel I'd hurry back to though.

after i mess about trying to get a room here, i really wish i didn't, i was working over night so the hotel was purely to rest for a couple of hours, but trust me you don't want to stay here for long.

very out of date and everything is just falling apart, very hot inside and the noise is really bad as well, i have not much to say but for what i experience i would not stay here unless it was necessary.

and this is for the managers, please don't put carpets on a desk or a room table, carpets are for the floor. (its not very hygienic), this place could do with a renovation or at list the room i was. but thanks the sheets are white.

Where to start really with this review but first of all I will say the staff at the hotel were fine throughout. First night our hotel room was cold and the radiator did not work. Breakfast next morning was very good in terms of selection but why oh why do we have to have air conditioning on in winter meaning one had to eat quickly before the food was cold. Second night we didn’t take kindly to being woken up about 3,00am by drunken youths on the same floor as us who didn’t shut up for an hour or so which didn’t at all make for a good night’s rest. All in all and even though the price was very good for a two night stay we will not being staying with this hotel chain in the future and will pay a little more for a few home comforts like HEATING.

Room Tip: Find somewhere else!
