We stayed at the Arlington for 4 nights last week - the whole experience was really good . We had a great room overlooking the Gardens which really added to our holiday .
The Hotel was very clean - the rooms being thoroughly cleaned every day .
The staff were all very pleasant - Reception on our arrival were great - it makes for a good start . We were able to park the car without any problems FOC - very useful as a number of hotels in Bournemouth are now charging up to £20 per night ! Parking is not guaranteed but with a bit of luck you should be ok .
The Evening meal is exceptional - if you want pizza , steak or any type of fast food don't have it - we had Dorset roast turkey , fresh grilled plaice , chicken etc - there's plenty of choice of really good home cooked food which is of high quality - normally a choice of 5 starters , mains & desserts - with unlimited free coffee afterwards .
We normally stay in 3* / 4* hotels but this is better than any of them - the rooms are not huge but more than adequate with really good beds , new TVs & not a speck of dust in sight .
The location is the best - go down through the hotel gardens & you are into the Lower Park Gadens which are only 3/4 minutes to the beach, pier or either side of the town centre . The walk to all these places is completely flat as well .
Not surprisingly they were awarded the Best Small Hotel of the year in Bournemouth in 2011 - it's certainly deserved . They just do everything so well & seem to attract good staff & friendly guests who return year after year & listening to some of them month after month - we shall be one of them !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A small, independent hotel in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking Bournemouth's Lower Gardens, with its own entrance directly into the gardens. Very close to beach, BIC & Pavilion theatres; both are less than a 5-minute walk - the BIC just around the corner with one pedestrian crossing to negotiate, and the Pavilion Theatre a short and pleasant stroll along the path through the gardens. The main shopping area with its impressive variety of shops and restaurants is also just across the Gardens. Short breaks to one of Bournemouth's theatres, a weekend getaway to the seaside, or a family holiday - The Arlington accommodates them all. Cyclists and walkers are always welcome at the Arlington and we can arrange cycle storage, cycle hire, and packed lunches for day trips. The Arlington Hotel has 28 rooms- single, double, twin and family rooms. Some rooms are on the ground floor, while there is a lift to the two upper floors. All bookings include: • FREE WIFI in all public areas • A full English Breakfast. ... more less
