“Better than the three stars above the door”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

Just the one night for my daughters graduation. Couldnt believe the value for money. Room was excellent with a great view of the pier and sea. Service standards of a 4* hotel.Evening meal and breakfast were of the highest quality. Would have liked to have booked a table for lunch next day in the restaurant but unfortunately only a bar meal service available, however, bar service and food was excellent.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel for our daughter's graduation ceremony at the BIC in Bournemouth. It was chosen for it's convenience opposite the venue and since it was a horrid wet day we were glad to be so close. Parking is available too which is a great bonus.

The hotel is undertaking refurbishment at present and although some banging during the day this did not present any problems. The public areas are well presented and staff efficient and pleasant. Emma on reception very friendly.

We paid extra for sea view - well worth it as the views are lovely. Rooms nicely decorated although rather hot at night even with the window open and the radiator off. On request our heavy quilt was changed for sheet and blanket which did help a little. Plenty of hot water and a shower which was adequate.

The buffet breakfast was very nice and it was so good to have freshly cooked field mushrooms rather than the usual button or even tinned in some hotels! Well done Chef!

This hotel seemed to have a lot of repeat guests (elderly) and my husband and I said in a few years time we may well do the same!!

Room Tip: Request a hight floor sea view

This is an excellent hotel, very clean and well organised. Good comfortable contemporary decor, well kept and maintained. Popular "Bistro/Coffee Lounge" on ground floor serving light meals and drinks. The bedrooms have every amenity and are very clean.
The Restaurant serves excellent food and is a must for Sunday Lunch and evening meals. Charles the Restaurant Manager has been with the Hotel for many years and is the most efficient and professional Restaurant Manager I have ever met. He is truly dedicated to his job.
The Hermitage Hotel is right in the center of Bournemouth, opposite the BIC and within easy walking distance to all the shops in Bournemouth. A lovely stroll through the gardens takes you to all the bus stops and the attractions of Bournemouth.

Room Tip: A front room with sea view if you can.

We only stayed in Bournemouth 1 night to attend a conference, and our stay was lovely.
The beds were comfortable, breakfast was made up of a huge selection and the hotel staff were helpful...
Only bad thing was that the plumbing in the hotel is a little old, but it's an old beautiful hotel, so it's to be expected.
I will stay here if I'm ever in Bournemouth again.

Have just returned from staying at the Hermitage Hotel. The hotel is centrally located next to the Winter Gardens and near Bournemouth Pier and ideal for the beach and town centre with free car parking. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with plenty of choice. The evening meal was superb and really well presented. Could not fault the hotel and would recommend this and will certainly stay there again.
