“Easter Break”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Had a wonderful 3 day Easter Break. We received a warm welcome on arrival and Vicky & Dave couldn't do enough to help us during our stay.There is plenty of parking and it's within walking distance of the pier and beach at Boscombe.Breakfast was fantastic, as much as we could eat and some local restaurants were recommended to us for the evenings.
The kids were especially impressed to get an easter egg at breakfast on easter Sunday - a nice touch.
Would definitely stay there again.

WyvernBournemouth, Owner at Wyvern Hotel, responded to this review, 25 June 2014
Absolutely not the place to come for your Hen night! We are a hotel for couples and families on vacation - not groups of girls going clubbing. This was explained to Sam prior to the booking.

Our website and our terms make this perfectly clear so next time perhaps you should read these! Vicky tried her hardest to relocate you to a more suitable establishment as soon as we realised that you were a Hen night. Unfortunately nothing was available in the area. Legally we had the option to retain the full booking fee and cancel your booking which in hindsight we wish we had done. However as Vicky felt sorry for you she allowed you to stay - We have learned a valuable lesson!

We booked a stay at the Wyvern hotel last minute and had a wonderful evening. We had a warm welcome from Vicky and Dave with tea, coffee and biscuits! The room was lovey and has a very nice 'homely' feel to it. A full English breakfast was included with our stay which was delicious! Overall, i would definitely stay at this lovely hotel when visiting Bournemouth again :)

Had a lovely one night stay at this hotel in Bournemouth. Comfortable rooms, very friendly hosts - we were welcomed with a cup of coffee and plate of biscuits and a very helpful map of the town centre. Vicky is lovely and makes you feel right at home. the breakfast was lovely and the hotel was very clean. All in all, very good value for money and we would recommend this hotel.

Arrived to a warm welcome and a lovely pot of tea and biscuits. Owners can't do enough for you.
Our room was clean, and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The breakfast was fantastic, so much choice. Will definitely stay again and recommend to friends and family.

Just returned from our 'last minute' one night stay at The Wyvern Hotel which we only booked the night before. What a gem! We received a very warm welcome from Vicky & Dave who supplied us with drinks and biscuits within 5 mins of us arriving. Although we had no special requests we got the feeling that nothing would have been too much trouble for them.

Our room was comfortable and clean and quiet even though it was located on the ground floor.
There was a generous supply of items on the tea tray in our room (most hotels usually only give you enough milk for 2 cups and we could have had 8!). Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice!

It was a short 10min walk down to Boscombe beach which which had beautiful golden sands. There is also a Harvester restaurant where we went for our evening meal.

Bournemouth Town was approx. 1.5miles up the coast.

Just three really really minor negative points (just because I'm a bit of a compulsive obsessive)... The poor goldfish in reception could do with a cleaner, bigger tank and, there was a vase of flowers on the reception desk that were well past their prime (probably better to have no flowers at all rather than a bunch of dead ones!). Last thing. just me being anal but it's a bugbear of mine ... a piece of paper is provided in the room for you to use at your will .... it has the heading 'Wyvern Stationary'. It's StationEry.

All in all - A lovely place with lovely people. Would definately recommend.

We were genuinely delighted by the warm welcome we received for our one night stay at the Wyvern Hotel which had been chosen for its close location to Bournemouth FC. The room was comfortable, clean and well decorated. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and constant top ups of coffee/tea if desired. We would definitely recommend this Hotel to any visitors to Bournemouth.
