“Could be first class subject to sorting out some problems !”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

The good : Location, friendly staff, clean rooms, excellent public area and breakfast.
Problems : Reported drain not emptying properly in shower but not resolved 24 hours later, safe faulty (repaired but then went faulty again), car park not monitoed properly allowing people to park in unmarked spaces (could cause potential damage to other vehicles), very late room cleaning service at around 4.00pm on two subsequent days.
Worthy of mention : Duty manager Richard was extremely pleasant.

After checking ourselves out of a B & B which didn't meet out expectations, we were searching for a short notice alternative and saw the Ramada, so enquired at reception, and was informed they had vacancies. The manager, Richard happily showed us a room, which was more than satisfactory. We accepted the room for a 2 night stay, and were well looked after by Richard and his team. Great breakfast, especially the coffee and made to order porridge. The hotel has a very modern style and friendly feel, spotlessly clean. Free monitored car parking was a major bonus as family came to meet us at the hotel. First on our list for the next time we visit Bournemouth. Well done and many thanks Ramada, Richard and team.

Room Tip: We had a second floor room and was informed the second floor was predominantly used for visiting air...

1st family holiday with the littlun and chose the hotel mainly for the location / price and parking facilities which i had been warned were very busy , not to mention expensive, during the summer.
Hotel was in a brilliant location , just close enough to the beach and shops and a little away from all the noisy night life. We chose room only to keep the price of our holiday down but the menu looked very pleasing and the prices were pretty reasonable compared to most other hotels. The room was clean and nicely decorated with plenty of space for our daughter to play. Staff were very friendly and even let us park the car after we checked out in their car park which was a blessing !
Really enjoyed our stay at the Ramada and would certainly recommend it to everyone , we want to book again for another stay same time next year. Thanks for a nice stay !

Down in Bournemouth for a visit we stayed an extra night to take advantage of the location of this hotel a short walk downhill to the lovely beach in Bournemouth ( a walk uphill to return!!)
My last review for Trip Advisor featured staff, and it was great to see such pleasant staff at the Ramada Encore. Good sized room - the aircon was needed- and good shower. I still prefer "products " rather than dispensers for soap, but I expect they are cheaper. Metal basin rather than china, but very very clean. Personally, getting on and with dodgy back, I felt the mattresses need to be of higher quality. Come on management make this important improvement and upgrade the mattresses!
Breakfast very good I loved the soft chairs in the centre. Parking excellent under and next to the hotel and FREE! Free Wi-Fi a great asset, it is a disgrace some hotels are so mean about wi-fi. A very good value stay for what we paid, thank you to all who made us so welcome.

Room Tip: We were on floor 6 is was quiet.

We pride ourselves on good staff and looking after our guests, so that is great feedback and I will look into the mattress situation. I believe our mattress are made by a very reputable company and I will obviously look into this, but it is a very hard thing to get 100% right as everyone is used to their own. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will stay with us again.

Stayed here for 4 nights 30th July until 3rd August. Have stayed many times and have always found the hotel to be spotlessly clean and the rooms are spacious, Towels in the bathrooms changed every day and rooms cleaned to a high standard.Air conditioning and heating are available for guests to regulate themselves in the rooms. Breakfast is good,buffet style, lots of choice and always hot, staff on hand to help in any way. Staff are always very polite and courteous and helpful.As we have been here many times we see the same staff most times, so that in itself speaks volumes to us! If staff stay with a hotel, they are obviously treated well by management! This obviously makes for happy staff which then feeds through to guests! Only a few minutes walk from the town/seafront with buses running every few minutes to lots of other places.As there is a free car park at the hotel we always park up and use the buses to different places! This is an excellent place to stay in Bournemouth. Only one small comment I would like to add...we are always given1 free mineral water/chocolate bar through the Wyndhams points scheme when we check in...........but as there are always 2 of us staying it would be nicer to give 2 mineral water/chocolate bar as it would save any arguments as to who had the chocolate bar :-) just a thought for Management???

Room Tip: As the hotel has many floors if you do not like heights, I would ask for a room on a lower floor, bu...

We stayed for one night in June to attand a wedding on Bournemouth Beach (wonderful location). Located only a few minutes walk to the beach and town centre. We arrived prior to check in time but were able to park our car for the day - a bonus in Bournemouth.
Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with a wet room with powerful shower. As the floor is laminate maybe bring your slippers! but the best surface to keep clean especially as we brought quite a bit of sand in from the beach.
Breakfast was first class, buffet style, replenshed as needed. With some outdoor seating we finished breakfast and had a coffee in the sun.
Great value, friendly staff. We would stay again no hesitation.

Donna and I went to Bournemouth for a last-minute weekend break and therefore booked the Ramada very last-minute.
1. Location excellent for town and beach
2. The staff was over helpful and friendly to the point I didn't think I was in England.
3. Underground parking, very convenient and it felt safe for my brand new Z4
4. Rooms clean, towels clean and the Queen size bed was very spacious.
5. Breakfast adequate.
All in all a great weekend and will defiantly return next time I’m in Bournemouth

Room Tip: Room 504!!
