Reviewed 27 December 2012

Firstly the disabled bedrooms are brilliant. The bathrooms are a wet room. So it's perfect if you are elderly or disabled, makes life a helluva lot easier. Bar is nice. Staff are polite and welcoming. Free wifi and free parking. Brill.

This is our second stay at the Ramanda Encore, and it really is ideal when attending BIC etc, with free parking. Walking distance of town, beach and generally a good location. Breakfast is good, staff good, room clean and minimal, all in all a good place to stay. If I return in the future to Bournemouth I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel.

I stayed here for one night recently, in order to attend an event at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC). The good bits: The hotel is within comforatble walking distance of the BIC. There is plenty of free parking avaialble and the breakfasts are decent.

The not so good: The decor in the public areas is very "functional" rather than welcoming and homely. The rooms are very spartan - I felt the combination of wood-effect "lino" floors (no carpets here!), plus rock-hard beds, stainless-steel bathroom sink and all-in-one shower and loo were rather reminiscent of a boarding school! Interesting concept and probably not for me.

WE stayed here on Saturday night to attend a gig at the O2 Academy.

Hotel was easy to find and check-in was smooth and quick. The room was clean and spacious enough. The bathroom is a wet-room which I prefer with a walk-in shower which was hot with good pressure

What I did like was the reception/dining area which was open-plan and good for casual snacks and drinks late-on. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I particularly liked the 2 night porters who were Polish guys that made a great double-act but were also friendly and efficient. A great asset to the place.

Parking is really quite tight and for the size of the place seemed a little on the sparse side but maybe they have an area I did not see other than the two covered areas and the few spaces at the front.

Otherwise a good option and close to some local pubs and restaurants..

The room was clean and had good wireless and air-conditioning.

Booked this hotel for the night as we were in Bournemouth to see Jools Holland (brilliant by the way!) Its a great hotel, free parking, which is getting a lot harder to find these days, clean, modern rooms. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Great breakfast, including a lot of what you would get in a 4 star hotel, fruit, cheese, pastries, full english, cereals etc.

All in all a great hotel for short breaks, with fairly easy walk into the town, although elderly people would probably struggle with walking as it is quite hilly.

Was staying in Bournemouth for one night on business and was attracted to the free wi-fi and free parking (public parking can be rather expensive in Bournemouth) for an excellent room rate with breakfast.

The hotel is a little way out of the town centre and too far away for holiday travellers, but for business travel is ideal.

The hotel is clean and functional, although the rooms feel a bit sterile and not very homely, again good for one night business travel, but wouldn't want to stay in the room for an extended stay.

Friendly staff and a couple of nice touches at check-in (free goody bag with chocolate and water if you sign up for a loyalty card).

Would stay again for business, but not for leisure, but compared to most business hotels, was good valley for money.

Cheap as chips for a weekend stay. Location fine and rooms clean with everything you need for a city base. The free parking definitely puts this above similar quality hotels in other cities. Along with free wifi and super hot powerful showers there's not anything else we could ask for. If back this way would look this up again.
