“Great location, fantastic staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2009

We stayed in the Bonnington Hotel for two nights. The hotel was in a great location, just a few minutes from the beach and a short walk into town.

The rooms was really clean and have been decorated just like a boutique hotel - not what we expected for such a low price! Breakfast was great too.

Thanks to Nick and his staff for a memorable stay - we'll definitely be back again!

I stayed at the Bonnginton Beach in April this year. I was pleasantly suprised by how warm and welcoming the staff are, given that it is so cheap and such good deal. The location is great. Mega close to the beach. There is a really cool bar / lounge area. Friendly owner made it clear it was no trouble for us to have cocktails there even after all the clubs had closed. Rooms were clean and fresh.
Only thing is the room we had was a teeny bit small. But everything else was fab. And we are going back again in 2 months!!!
Thanks Bonnington Beach.

Booked the Bonnington through Late Rooms for £52.50 B&B for 2 nights for my 30th birthday. Total bargain. Got full breakfast both days even though we were late both days (sorry Nick). Our room was cosy and clean and close enough to town centre to walk. It is in the middle of refurbishment and will look great when finished. The bar is small but well stocked. The main pull of this hotel is the staff though. They really made everyone feel welcome and enjoyed having a banter with us and kept the bar open as long as we wanted.

My friends and I have just returned from the Bonnington Hotel, Bournemouth.

We chose the hotel as it was one of the few that appeared to be able to sleep 3 within one room.

Upon arrival, we received the briefest of greeting and had the guys pretty much thrown to us. Upon entering the room, we noted the 3 single beds which looked SO much smaller than average singles! They were also missing valances and had the thinnest of duvets and pillows. It was therefore a rather squashed sleep!

Prior to going out for the evening, we decided to shower etc.. Only to find that the shower only dribbled a small stream of water and was pretty much unusable. The bathroom was dated and didnt seem particularly clean. We (very slowly) ran baths for each of us. This was ideal when in a hurry!

The walls to the room were also paper thin and we could hear everyone's movements and conversations.. Not ideal when the hotel appeared to host mainly hen and stag do's!

Finally, in the morning we awoke at 8:30, ready for breakfast (only served 8-9am) only to get to Reception and be told that breakfasts arent served in the winter! Whilst this fault possibly lies with the site we booked through, we were pretty annoyed. Thankfully, the hotel owner gave us a token for a breakfast at the pub over the road, which helped!

All of the above, means we wont be returning!

  • Liked — Ok location, disco ball in the room :)
  • Disliked — Bed size, cleanliness and staff attitudes

This hotel has obviously had a full refit so ignore all negative reviews.

Our room was a good size, clean and modern. The bar is very trendy and reasonably priced. Really friendly staff, fab location (max 5mins to town & BIC) and I can't fault the price - excellent value for money.

Will definately use again.

We enjoyed our stay . The hotel was spotlessly clean and the hotel staff very friendly. Eddy the acting manager was very helpful and made us feel wecome.
