The Hermitage Hotel Bournemouth
Ranked #10 of 67 Hotels in Bournemouth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2014

We stayed from the 14th Feb until the 16th. We had booked a double room with a sea view. On arrival the hotel looked decent and fairly clean, but with the weather we had had that week maybe it was a bit more dishevelled than normal. On being allocated our room we got into the lift which can not accommodate more than 2 people without getting to close. The room had a sea view and could see the pier however water was leaking thro the window onto the floor where towels had been place to soak up said water. After being shown several other rooms of lesser standard or offered our money back to try another hotel we stuck it out, with more towels in case.
The rooms are basic and in need of updating but were (apart from window, which was down to severe weather conditions), clean and comfortable.
The food that was served we ate in the bar was nice and have no complaints and Juan the barman looked after us very well. Breakfast was served in the restaurant, buffet style and was acceptable the first morning we had almost finished our breakfast before tea and toast arrived.
Overall a clean hotel in excellent position right by the sea front and would be worth putting on your short list for a stay in Bournemouth. Would we stay there again, only possibly but that is more to do with the amount of hotels to chose from in that area and change is good as.

Room Tip: Look for a room facing away from the town or sea view

Stayed for the weekend as this was where our company Xmas party was being held. Although it was very busy the food came out all in good time, hot & very enjoyable. The room was of a good size and the Bathroom was very large. With the beech only a few mins walk away we had a lovely morning walk along the sea front. Also easy access to the town centre. Free wifi in the room was very useful. My other colleagues also commented on how they enjoyed their stay here.

Last weekend we stayed here - our friends (who we were meeting there) had informed us that they too had enjoyed this Hotel over a number of years, hence, we found out for ourselves this was a true statement.
Our room was 211 which had a view out to the Pier and the Park. Plenty of staff in the Hotel which were very helpful and friendly towards the guests. Charles the Restaurant Manager had the dining room under his gentle control (vast experience - he should write a book!!) lovely food, fresh vegetables. The only one criticism was the Roasted Tomato and Basil Soup that was served on the Saturday evening, it tasted very bland as though it came from a tin or was it powder soup??
This Hotel has a charm and is very well situated across from the beach, town centre and numerous walking places, including the Museum - and either way to Poole or Boscombe. Looking forward to staying here next year!

Seeing a show at the BIC and staying just over the road at this hotel was ideal. The sea view was
must as the hotel is so well situated for a 2 mins walk to the beach.Although not one of the most up to date hotels, what it lacks in modern gyms etc it makes up for in charm and service . The breakfast was very good and over all a good stay . A definite for any one going to a show at the BIC.

A planned break for Valentine's weekend. Stayed in superior room with sea view. Room clean and spacious. Ideal location - 5 minute walk to beach. 5 - 10 minute walk to town centre (shops). Toilets very clean. Reception and hotel staff very friendly. Breakfast was very good. Help yourself to continental and English breakfast selections. Room service excellent value at £2! Would stay at this hotel in the future and would definitely recommend.

We stayed at this hotel this weekend and it was a lovely, clean hotel in a fantastic location; right near the beach front and a short walk to the town centre.

Our room had a sea view, was lovely and clean but was quite small and also VERY hot (we had to have the window open 80% of the time there as we would have roasted to death, lol). We were also in a room opposite the "talking" lift which was a bit of a nightmare whilst trying to get to sleep. Also, one other small downpour is that the hotel only has single glazed windows and at night you could hear the thumping beat from a local pub/club, laughter when they got kicked out at 3am and all the passing road traffic. If you need silence to get to sleep (like me) then take war plugs and ask for a room away from the lift.

That said, the hotel was very lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The amazing location beat all of the small negatives. We would defo stay there again

We stayed Valentine weekend, room was bit outdated & small, bed was very small & rock hard! Breakfast was lovely, even though scrambled egg was very runny looking! The only thing that drove us crazy was squeaky floor boards!!! Smelt of strong paint in corridor! Would stay again though, but would want a bigger room with a bigger bed, specially with it being a 4*.staff were pleasent. Overall good first time experience in this hotel!
