“Christmas at East Cliff Menzies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

As usual, staff, who are without exception , so kind and helpful, especially Natasha. Lovely comfortable room at front of hotel with balcony and sea views. Food generally good but the main meals (dinner) were sometimes a bit tough to get into. Other meals were lovely. Look forward to visiting again.

We took my brother and his wife to Bournemouth to experience the Christmas Market and to do last minute Christmas shopping. I booked 2 rooms at the hotel for 2 nights 20 & 21 December. The hotel is well positioned with excellent views of the sea and pier. We had rooms on the front of the hotel, both with a balcony. The weather was dreadful and it prevented us from seeing much of the Christmas Market, but the hotel staff more than compensated with there helpful and cheerful advice of other places to visit that were sheltered from the weather. The service was always top quality nothing was to much trouble and when the weather improved on the Sunday morning they offered to look after our car and luggage after official checkout so that we could enjoy a walk along the front in the winter sunshine.

Last time I stayed at the East Cliff was a disappointment. Stayed Xmas night and booked the evening buffet. It seemed they forgot our booking but made a table up very quickly. The food was absolutely superb. Was informed their would be entertainment in the evening when booking but nothing was laid on.
Our room was lovely with a great sea view. The only reason I would not give it 5 stars was the cheap mattress. It is such a shame that the room was so good but the mattress let it down.
As usual the public parts of the hotel are clean and well presented.

Room Tip: Have found in the past you can get a poor room at the back of the hotel.

I organised my 70th Birthday party to coincide with the Christmas party offer because of the date available and
it couldn't have gone better.
The service received was commented on by all guests without reservation to be second to none and all
guests remarked on the excellence of the food and variety of menu I choose.
The rooms that guests had were very clean and tidy with everything you needed to hand and I enjoyed a sea view at the front.
The value for money is excellent and the Menzies East Court Hotel is in such a pleasant area, that many guests expressed a desire to stay over in the future.
The whole staff at the Menzies acted very professionally and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask reception of your requirements regarding small/larger room, front ,back, side, sea vi...

Stayed at the Menzies for weekend very nice clean hotel, rooms were excellent and great value.
Staff were very helpful and everywhere was spotless and rooms had been redecorated. Would certainly stay again with location ideal for beach and town.

I stayed for one night in a single room and it was comfortable, clean and warm. Excellent value for money. Public areas are very nice with sea views. I would recommend to friends and family. Staff friendly and efficient.

Arrived and parked at back of hotel. Left car there all weekend, great.
Reception were welcoming and chatty which was nice.
We had been allocated a suite, which we shouldn't grumble about but one bed was absolutely massive and the other was a tiny single. (better to have split the larger singles) so one of us had to sleep in the single bed. Not funny.
Shower took a while to come hot but was fine, nice towels too and bathrobes.
Location a nice walk along the cliff into town.
There were a lot of Christmas parties going on but that didn't detract from the good service at a very busy breakfast time. The man serving the coffee was very attentive and pleasant.
