“We had a great time!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

At first we were somewhat bemused by the early show of Christmas decorations on arrival in the hotel but of course Christmas has come earlier for some groups! However nothing was too much trouble in this hotel and it was obvious the staff really cared and loved their job. A real change! Not a boutique hotel but big rooms and great location! We walked everywhere or caught a bus. It is very near the sea and we had a sea view from our large bedroom.It is also very near the centre as well. We had entertainment in the hotel on Saturday night which we werent expecting but it was great fun and we had a great time. The sun shone and it was such a pleasure to stay in such a friendly place. Everything is very clean and the breakfast was great too. We had a dog with us who was welcomed too. Would really recomend this hotel and we will certainly go back as it didnt break the bank too!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of your stay with us. We are glad you found so much to enjoy whilst you were here and would come back again. We do start our Christmas tinsel and turkey breaks early, but in our opinion, its never too early to get into the festive spirit. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back.

We booked at the last minute for our silver wedding anniversary and we were allocated room 27. We were very impressed with the room which is very spacious and spotlessly clean, it also had a four poster bed. the staff were all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.we also enjoyed the breakfast as we could choose from various cooked options. The location is excellent close to the seafront and town centre. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and family and look forward to returning soon!

I had a lovely stay at this hotel.
Upon arrival I was told I had been upgraded from a single room to a double, as they had the room available, which was excellent as my room had amazing sea views!!
The hotel is in a great location just a short walk from the beach and a big plus is that the hotel has free parking.
I stayed during an off-peak season so the hotel was nice and quiet.
Seeing as I wouldn't be spending a lot of time in the room it had all the essentials I needed like a teas maid and a TV. The room was very clean too.
If I had to suggest any improvements I would say the breakfast was ok could have been better, but saying that I did have the full english every morning, just felt as if it could have been abit tastier.
As I was on the top floor the WIFI wasn't that strong, but if needs be I could have sat on my laptop in the bar.
I must not have found the technique to pressing the buttons correct in the lift as it always took a few presses of the button for it to move.
Apart from that I would definitely recommend the Tower House Hotel.
Thanks for a great stay :)

We appreciate you taking the time to write a review of your recent stay with us. We are glad you found so many positives about your stay here.
We will take on board your comments about breakfast and pass it on to our chef. We do not have wifi throughout the hotel, just in our lounge areas, we hope you found this efficient.
Our lift is set to a timer to allow people to get in and out the lift without the doors closing on them, so there is no technique as such, just push your floor and allow the doors to close.
Thanks again and we are glad you would recommend us.

Fantastic location just minutes walk from city centre and beach but tucked away so quiet. Staff all very friendly, helpful and approachable. Breakfast very good.

Rooms big and spacious, clean and bright.

It is not luxurious but very comfortable and would definitely go back and recommend to anyone anytime. Nothing that I could criticize

I was looking for somewhere quiet, clean and comfortable to stay whilst in Bournemouth, and that's exactly what you'll get at the Tower House Hotel. The staff were lovely, the hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are large and have everything you'll need (including a shower room which seemed brand new).

Hospitality from the staff and its owner Matt gets a five star rating from us. The location too is worthy of a five star rating by itself, right on the front easily accessible to the lawned cliff top with fantastic views of the sea and beach below and to the pathway down to sea front. If you are a little less able bodied, the cliff railway is nearby too. Superb food, faultless in essence.
Should we ever have need to return would certainly use it again.
Thank you Matt and all for a caring stay.

Got home earlier today after 2 days staying at this hotel, and it honestly was the best hotel I've ever stayed in :) Staff were so friendly and helpful, and the room was really clean and comfy - the bed was amazing to sleep in! I can't wait to come back again next year!! :)
