“Excellent all round!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We hosted an event in the East Cliff Court Hotel. The staff were amazing and very helpful with setting up, moving things around and finding equipment for us that we had overlooked. During the night the staff were very helpful with our guests and always had a smile on their faces. Thank you all for helping us and making our event that little bit more special.

Our visit was a Friday to Sunday stress relief break after minding grandchildren and how well Menzies staff fulfilled our wishes. Very warm welcime on arrival and due to a minor booking error ,not of the hotels doing , we were upgraded to a sea view room with great proportions, WOW what a start. The breakfast is as good as you will ever come across with several out of the kitchen specials at no extra cost. Dinner was fantastic with several choices for each course, presented by polite and helpful staff. Absolutely no complaints from us. The hotel is within 10 mins walk of town centre and the beach even closer, although as the address suggests, the way back is uphill. For those fit enough, the walk to Poole along the coast is bracing even in the sun. Good to raise the heartbeat.

Room Tip: Sea view obviously preferable and not on the right hand corner if available. Only reason I say this...

We booked for a weekend away with friends, Friday-Sunday. The price we secured was with breakfast and one evening meal.

The breakfast was a buffet, cooked, continental as well as being able to order omelette and poached eggs as cook to order items.

The breakfast could not be faulted, plentiful, tasty, all in a relaxed atmosphere. The room we had was lovely and spacious, a comfortable bed, and although the view was not of the sea it did not spoil it for us.

The friends we went with had a slightly smaller room, but again very comfortable with all you needed.

The meal was a 3 course was excellent, there was a selection of approx. 5 items for each starter, main and pudding. The only niggling thing was only one veggie selection, which could be a problem for some dinners.

The only real negative thing was the Wifi, they said it was included throughout the hotel, but the signal more often than not dropped out. 3G was a far faster bet, in peak season I can imagine this would be even worse.

Great location for both Boscombe and Bournemouth. There are also plenty of bars and eateries about a 10 min walk from the hotel.

Visiting our son we came back to East Cliff. It is in a great location easy to walk to town, and back. We enjoyed a sea view from our room.Nice bar area to sit in during the evening. Breakfast enjoyable as ever.
Staff helpful and very pleasant.

Room Tip: Sea view definitely.

Stayed Sunday 9th Feb for one night dinner bed and breakfast offer for a treat for my mums birthday. We experienced an excellent reception service, free upgrade to balcony /sea views. Dinner was superb and breakfast was served with attention to detail. They all pulled out all stops to give my Mum a good start to her birthday. They allowed us to decorate the table, cared for flowers that had arrived a day before to be placed on her table at breakfast. Even the reception guy looked out for me to ask if the room was acceptable. The room was spacious clean a bathroom perfect. We had a quiet Sunday evening perfect for what we needed. ( aware busy hotel the evening before). In all a great offer, great food, lovely hotel guests very friendly. As well as staff that were warm and welcoming,I would return and I certainly would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room make a difference to the overall holiday break experience.

We, 94 of us, just spent the weekend at this hotel and it was excellent. The food was very good, the hotel was very clean, there is ample free parking.
The manager, Paul Clarke was extremely professional, all of the staff were excellent and very attentive, in particular David, Lorena, Victoria and Natasha were outstanding.
We will definitely go there again.
Thanks very much, it was a very nice experience.

We stayed at the Eastcliff Court hotel mid week with our 7 month old baby. I'd called then directly when trying to book as I was unsure whether we needed a family room or not as this was our first trip with our daughter. The nice lady advised me I could get a sea view double for about the same price as a family room as I was bringing a travel cot anyway. Room was great- big and with a brilliant view and balcony- I was well pleased I called them! Staff were really friendly and didn't mind us feeding our very greedy baby from their breakfast buffet at no extra cost! Also got a lovely back massage at the Carlton next door with 10% off. Will definitely stay there again when we hopefully go back to Bournemouth one summer

Stayed February 2014
