We stayed here for three nights, food was good and it made a pleasant change to see that most of the waiting staff are English and surprising to see that they are all male! Not often seen nowadays when most hotels couldn't survive without foreign workers. We had a massive flat screen tv on the wall with a clean and tidy bathroom, not four star but then the hotel isn't!
Free car parking which is a plus in Bournemouth now. Drinks reasonably priced. Never used the leisure facilities so am unable to comment. Only downside was the receptionist taking our payment and not even saying goodbye, just disappearing into the back office.
I was surprised to see that most of the clientele were on our visit of the senior citizen variety, most were well behaved but I couldn't believe the attitude of some who complained about an 80th birthday function which was making too much noise! How can you have a function with no noise? It finished at 11pm which we thought was early enough and some of the party were parking their chairs half on the dance floor which was a bit naughty and young kids running around all over the place but they soon went off to bed, we had a good night and we are in our 60's so I'm worried about being really old if I spend my time having a moan about other old people having a bit of fun. It takes all types to make a world unfortunately. I'd go again to this hotel.

Stayed for two nights around the airshow.

Great location but dates were booked incorrectly so was offered a junior double. Room was ok but a little small and cramped.

Staff were friendly and really helpful in sorting booking error.

Indoor pool was very small.

A little overpriced for room size but great location on East Cliff.

We went to Bournemouth for the air festival and booked this hotel in advance, we were worried when reading some of the reviews but luckily our concerns were proved unfounded. Yes it's little outdated in terms of decor but its clean, lots of hot water, great, friendly staff and a nice breakfast. On the 2nd night a bus load of pensioners arrived and we did feels little outnumbered but they were a friendly bunch and very good at bingo!! Overall, decent 3 star hotel in a great location for the air show.

I recentley stayed at Hinton Firs Bournemouth , probabley about our 6th trip back there so it was nice this time to get a good sized room with a very large comfortable Modern Bed,TV, Tea and coffee making facilities as usual. Large Bathroom which was clean , only had one towel when we arrived so we asked a very helpfull polite young man who was in the corridor making up the Rooms for more and he was back in just 2 mins with more fresh clean towels.The Shower is not exactley a power shower but it is adequte .
We found the staff to be better than our last stay, much more friendly and always polite they all work very hard and We would like to say a paticular Big Thankyou to Fran who works in the Restaurant . Shes always dashing around and has a lot to do but will always have time for you for a quick chat.
The Food still remains the best thing about Hinton Firs with good standard Hot meals that are served to your table so none of this terrible Buffett style dinning , who wants to have to que up for there dinner and serve it up themselves youre supposed to be on Holiday its a Break and all about relaxing and treating yourself so good old traditional waiter/waitress service is very much appriciated.Very Good location is walking distance to Boscombe or Bourenmouth. If you get the chance go and see the Bourenmouth Air Show absolutley Brilliant ! Overall Hinton Firs does seem very good value for money, Yes its an old Building but in a strange way thats whats nice about it Truly Traditional would be a better term to use and yes we will be staying there again when we are tired of working and just need to recharge our batteries. Mr and Mrs Harvey.

After booking this hotel and reading the reviews in tripadvisor we were in two minds whether to go or not. We found the hotel to be very good and the staff exceptional.The breakfast was very good and it was refreshing to be served a freshly cooked breakfast rather than the customary buffet found in most other hotels.I would recommend this hotel to anybody and we shall certainly revisit.

Room Tip: Choose rooms 30-34 as these seem to be more airy than the others
