“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

We went to Bournemouth together with my friend to see some sights as we heard that it is a top destination to visit.
We have chosen to book Menzies East Cliff Court via Lastminute.com, which was really good idea as they have given us very good price for really amazing room.
I have also heard that this hotel is one of the best hotels in Bournemouth. Now after visiting the place I would say it is the best.
We have been allocated a standard double room but it still had smashing side sea view.
The rooms must have been just refurbished as they looked very nice and looked after. The breakfast was another nice surprise, it was plentiful. I can't even remember what exactly was in menu as it was a really long list of what is served.
The staff was very nice too. Girls who were serving the breakfast were really efficient, quick and friendly. I can recommend this place to everyone with no doubt that you will not enjoy it! Ohh almost forgot :) The views are breath taking! Hotel is on the top of the cliff.
The hotel is situated near the town centre, shops like eg tesco are just 5 mins walking distance from the hotel.
We definitely will be back!

Room Tip: think that all are good as they must have refurbished the rooms

My husband and I took our family to the East Cliff Court for the Air Show event on Friday 31st August - it was a fantastic day and made all the more enjoyable by the professional and friendly staff at the East Cliff, starting with pimms then bar-b-que lunch and finally afternoon tea whilst watching the wonderful red arrows perform there amazing was truly memorable. we shall certainly be visiting again!

Our double room was clean, comfortable and with attractive furnishings. The bathroom was surprisingly large which is always a welcome feature in any hotel. Location of the hotel is hard to beat, being on a cliif top with sea views. (Some rooms have sea views, although ours didn't). Buffet breakfast was in large elegant dining room, with both cold and cooked food on offer.
We only stayed for one night so were unable to take full advantage of the hotel's facilities and its location, however, this brief stay created a favourable impression, so if the apportunity arises, a return visit to this hotel is likely. Other plus points: staff were pleasant and polite, parking was easy, complimentary tea / coffee / shampoo etc was well stocked. wi-fi was free.

Room Tip: Some rooms have sea view (but may cost extra).

good staff, all friendly.
room was clean & a good size. bathroom was good, good shower.
Hotel is on the top of the cliff. just a minutes walk to the 'zig-zags' path down to the beach, which is steep!! going down is OK, not so easy coming back up!! you can also walk along the road!!
the town is 10-15mins walk
great clifftop location.
Breakfast: serve yourself buffet. good choice of usual English hot breakfast. also, cereals, pastries, cheeses, continental meats, various rolls etc

My wife and I stayed at the East Cliff Court Hotel on Friday 31/8/12 and watched the Bournemouth Air Show from their balcony. We had a wonderful afternoon and a very pleasant stay.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Bournemouth

I stayed her for a long weekend and the beginning of August. When I checked in I was offered an upgrade to a suite at about £20.00 a night which I accepted and what a treat it was. Very compact but had great spaces and excellent views. Its about a 20 minute walk to the town but you'll be glad of it at night when your trying to sleep as there location is nice and quiet. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean.

Room Tip: Ask about upgrades

We booked the sea view superior room with balcony and although was a bit pricey, was worth every penny for the beautiful views and spacious room. We were situated in the middle of the flying line for the air show and when comparing our location to that of other hotels i looked at, we both agreed this is the best located hotel for the airshow. Room was very big, very clean and modern. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast full of choice (had cooked English breakfast one morning and then maple waffles next day) Room service food not too impressed with, very standard. Big bonus is the free parking and free wifi they offer as well as the sweeties in the room. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: go for one with a seaview and balcony
