There is always something comforting and reliable about the Marriott. We are Marriott junkies and the brand is usually our first choice wherever possible. We have stayed at Marriott hotels all over the world and the Bournemouth Highcliff did not disappoint. It is superbly located on Westcliff with magnificent views over the sea and beach. The building is a beautiful historic mansion and has been sympathetically and elegantly decorated especially in the public rooms. We did not dine at the main restaurant but the menu indicated that it was of a high end standard. We ate at the Thai restaurant in the hotel where the food was authentic and delcious. Our room was huge, decorated in the ubiquitous Marriott style with those trademark super comfortable beds and crisp 300TC bed linen.
The only quibble we had was in relation to the choice of beer at the swimming pool. We though we would have a cool beer mid afternoon but the pool surround was very crowded. We decided to order a drink anyway but the only beer (lager) on offer (this is England, remember!) was BUDWEISER!! Now we appreciate that Marriott is an American brand but this was too much. Budweiser is the worst lager in the world so we did not order. The excuse offered was that it was the only one available in a plastic bottle………hmmmm……
