Village Hotel Bournemouth
Ranked #30 of 67 Hotels in Bournemouth
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We were in Bournemouth for the air show.. Luckily for us, the hotel was a short walk from one of the air show park and rides, which was well-organised, so our journey to the cliffs and back was very straightforward. The room was spacious and satisfactory for our two night stay. The pool was excellent, you could have a proper swim, with lanes roped off. The changing room facilities were good with spacious shower cubicles with shampoo dispensers, and a swimming costume spin drier. The breakfasts were as good as expected and we could park free, you sometimes have to pay for this. My only criticism was that the lift was slow.

This is basically a business hotel but it is dog friendly and the rooms were spacious. Breakfast was a little disappointing in that the bread was processed sliced - no home baked bread or rolls. Croissants and nice pastries.though . All the usual hot stuff which I don't normally eat. I had 2 fried eggs but although I like mine runny I had to be careful as they all looked under cooked. We had a drink in the bar and as expected the drinks were very expensive. The pool is large and had swimming lanes which suited me as I like to swim when I'm in a pool. The staff were very friendly. A bit disappointing that they had no information for tourists - they said because it was the end of the summer ( 4th Sept !). There is free wifi so we searched the internet for info. We toured the area - Boscombe, Poole Quay, Swanage - what a lovely area ! Beautiful beaches which unfortunaltely our dog is not allowed on until 1st Oct. The hotel is easy to find as it is opposite the main hospital. A couple of miles from central Bournemouth. We booked the hotel thro exedia so it wasn't too expensive but there was a charge hidden on expedia of £15 per night for the dog.

I was booked into this hotel on business, on Upper Deck, and found it better than your average leisure break motel.

The Upper Deck is a mix of genuinely worthwhile extras - like comfy beds, great linen and comfortable seating plus some slightly chavtastic extras such as 'starbucks' instant coffee sachets and complimentary toiletries described as 'pinchable'.

The breakfast was OK. I had thought it would be awful based on other reviews here but it wasn't that bad. There was a good choice of juices (including orange juice with bits), good coffee, a choice of cut fruits including a fresh fruit bowl and the cooked items were not greasy. However, others are right in that the croissants and bread were dry, the quality of the cooked items not great and the usual cheese and ham buffet offerings not in evidence. I was at breakfast as they opened due to work commitments, so everything should have been at maximum freshness.

The Verve Grill early evening menu was fine and a very good price but, overall, it was outweighed by the expensive drinks - £4.20 for a 750ml bottle of still water. Not even served with ice.

Reception were very friendly, happy and made easy conversation - both when I arrived and when I checked out.

I understand there is also a good set of leisure facilities here which would add to the value of a stay.

The rooms were to a good quality and all staff were very friendly and helpful. We wanted a hotel with a pool to take our granddaughter swimming, on an overnight stay between visiting the beech at Hengisbury Head and Paultons Park. The pool here seems to be part of a leisure centre and there for run like one. Lane swimming, and aqua aerobics, also no children after 7pm (there are other time restrictions I believe to) so if you have children be aware of the time table so they are not disappointed. This is a very good hotel for the price we paid and we enjoyed our stay. Excellent food in the bar restuarant at very reasonable prices.

This is a run of the mill village hotel. Rooms are lovely and spacious and very clean, however could do with more light !!
Food was lovely and service was great
Breakfast was a disappointment, only grapefruit in the fruit section, stale croissants and horrendous scrambled eggs. Staff also didn't provide any direction for breakfast.

A mixed group of us visited here recently for their Sunday Carvery Lunch. WOW! what a pleasant experience - a very relaxed buffet affair with so much choice it was mind boggling!

A 5-course lunch for £12.50 (ish) without drinks is incredible and to execute it with such variety, quality and service is nothing short of miraculous!!

Soup, cold meat, fish and pate starters, sumptuous carvery for mains (or freshly cooked pasta if you would rather) followed by mouth watering desserts and cheese and biscuits was the order of the day - oh yes, and freshly cooked waffles with toppings galore if you've any room left.

Excellent value and very pleasant surroundings with ample parking - what more can you ask for?

We stayed at the De Vere Village in Bournemouth as we were attending a wedding reception. The room was very clean and comfortable. Check in and out was very smooth. Breakfast was included and was what I expected. Staff were very helpful and professional. You get access to the gym from the point of check in until 3pm the day of check out. Parking is free as well.

Would definitely recommend for a short stay.
