“Small but perfectly formed”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stayed here over the May bank holiday weekend. We were told that the sea view rooms were all taken, but our room did have a partial sea view, so we were pleased with that. The room itself was a little small [No 419], but after moving some furniture around it was adequate. The bed was very comfy, the bathroom was modern and the shower was as hot as you wanted, and powerful. Our room was clean, as was the whole hotel. Good parking. Breakfast was relaxed and the menu comprehensive. Staff were very attentive, although the restaurant manager seemed a little 'hyper' at times. Mens toilets next to reception could do witha facelift. Could do with some outside seating. Dont understand the smoking tent positioned right at the front of the hotel. It makes the entrance look shabby, and stink.

Room Tip: Check square footage of room when booking.

I have just returned from a short 2 night stay at the Hermitage hotel with my girlfriend . Well first off I would say 2 nights certainly isn't long enough. We stayed in the superior room which had everything we needed for a very comforting stay. The sea view was lovely to wake up to and the huge comfortable bed made sure we had a good nights sleep . The room was very clean on arrival and the staff were all very happy to help in any way they could. In general the hotel had a very classy feel to it and we felt like we were being looked after at all times . If I had to think of a negative I would struggle, the only thing I would say was the cooked breakfast could be improved slightly. Overall 10/10 we will be going back

My husband and I 96 year old mum in law stayed for two nights.Both rooms had sea views, although our bed was a little small, the room and facilities were super. The food was lovely, the staff helpful and were very kind and polite to mum (who said she had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back again) The hotel is in great order, decor and furnishings are a great mixture of traditional and modern and its obvious that the customer is important. The hotel is between the two theatres so no need for taxis, its next to the park and a hop skip and a jump to the beach, very very convenient

Room Tip: have a sea view if you can

We always stay at this hotel when we come to Bournemouth, the staff are very helpful and friendly, our room was nice and clean, every thing about the room was fine, the other areas of the hotel were also clean and all kept up together, will stay here again in the future, well worth the 4 stars, also very close to the BIC.

Room Tip: We always stay in a double room with sea view

We had a delightful second visit made special by the change of staff!
Charles in the restaurant is a perfect host and the reception staff second to none.
Location perfect for the beach and town.
Breakfast plentiful and dinners delicious.
Only prob was room was exceptionally hot and due to location of room we couldn't leave window open.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view

My husband and i stayed for 2 nights at the Hermitage with my 2 sisters and brother-in-law's for a family get together whilst visiting the Pavillions to see the Bootleg Beatles. The Pavillions and the Bournemouth International centre is within a few minutes walking distance, as is Bournemouth town centre, the pier and beach.
The hotel was lovely. Our room - 212 was on the 2nd floor and located right outside the lift. Very easy access if you had mobility issues. It is a lovely large, quiet room with a big bay window which overlooks the pier and has a wonderul view of the sea. There is a large king size bed which was not really that comfortable. i spoke to Reception about it the next morning and when we retired to bed that evening, a mattress topper had been put on and this made it much more comfortable.
We were on a half board basis. The dinner was superb. The food was excellent and the service by Charles and his team was friendly and very professional. When we asked for more vegetables they were brought to us without any hesitation. The breakfast on the first morning was buffet style but served on the 2nd day. The buffet style was nicer, as was the selection to choose from. We all preferred to serve ourselves.
The tariff to stay at this hotel is quite expensive but I guess the service and food quality justifies the price. All the guests staying at this time appeared to be mature. I did not see any children present as there really isn't anything for them to do there since the swimming pool no longer exists. This is a shame but I guess as the beach and sea are very close and if the weather is good then there may not be a need for a pool.
I would most certainly stay at this hotel again and hope to return again shortly.

Room Tip: 212 - very large quiet room overlooking the sea and pier with large king size bed and fridge.
