Historical Traveler Reviews The Claremont Hotel Bournemouth
Hospitality at its best
We received a warm welcome at the Claremont Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean and tidy, as was our room. There was a variety of breakfast options available, but with Full English as one of them there was only one choice for us!!
Scott's banter over the bar made us as relaxed and comfortable as the alcohol. And Alan's bar menu had a domino effect. As one meal came out of the kitchen, another order went in from someone else.
The Claremont Hotel is conveniently situated for the shops, the seafront and for the Triangle. That along with Scott and Alan's incredible hospitality makes it the only place we'd stay in Bournemouth in future.
Service with a smile
A very pleasant stay. Scott and Alan were friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast catered for all tastes. Vegetarian and the full English! Only a few minutes walk from the conference centre and the town. Wished we could have stayed longer.
Definitely one to recommend!
I stayed at the Claremont in a group of 5 for two nights, all attending a conference at The BIC. The Claremont has ample parking and is only 5 mins walk to the conference centre. We found Scott and Alan extremely friendly and helpful, even cooking our breakfast early so we could attend the conference on time! The hotel was extremely clean and very tidy (and put other hotels we had stayed at in the area to shame) and the breakfast was good. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a small, welcoming hotel in a great location. Would definitely stay again.
Best B&B In Town!!!
Currently working in Bournemouth, I scoured many an internet page to find accommodation for the first initial couple of weeks of my contract. I had marked the Claremont Hotel down as one of my preferences (just from the informative website), however spent my first week in one of the larger hotels in town, which in all honesty, was impersonal, shabby and completely overpriced. I decided then after that I would call the Claremont and luckily they had a vacancy. That was 3 weeks ago!!! Everything about the Claremont, is how a classic B&B should be - welcoming, more than reasonably priced, superbly clean, nice (but not over the top) decor, comfortable surroundings and a fantastic hearty breakfast (the evening meals are great also)!!! Scott and Alan who own the hotel, are extremely friendly and helpful, which simply adds to the pleasantness of your stay. The hotel has adequate off-road parking and is literally a 5min walk to the beach/pier/BIC and a 10min walk to the town shopping centre, bars/clubs & pleasure gardens. I would highly recommend the Claremont to anyone looking to stay in Bournemouth, whether it be for one night, a short weekend or a longer stay. I will miss it when I leave, but will not hesitate to return!!!
Fantastic - choose this hotel when in Bournemouth!
We loved this hotel. I had been staying at another hotel in Bournemouth for work last week, and moved to the Claremont for the weekend when my husband came to join me. I chose the Claremont because of its location, but there is so much more to it than that.
The hotel is clean, immaculately presented and very stylishly decorated. The small team of staff work extremely hard and take pride in their work. They are also alot of fun!! The breakfasts were fantastic, and we were only sorry that we had to go after just two nights.
If you want to stay somewhere with the personal touch that is also close to all the Bournemouth nightlife, then choose this hotel. We could not find fault with it at all - excellent.
Great place to stay
Have been staying here for well over a year on business and will continue to come back again and again. The guys couldn't be any more helpful and the hotel is always spotless. I have stayed in practically every room in the hotel and all are very comfortable and relaxing. Location wise you are in view of the sea and only a couple of minutes walk from the city centre. I wish the lads all the best in the future and you would be well advised to see if there is a room free if your visting Bournemouth.
Great little hotel with parking facilities.
Only two minutes walk to the sea, a further two to the pier.
Very close to the gardens, main shopping area and many restaurants.
Many ensuite rooms with bed/breakfast and cheap evening meals if required.
Cosy bar for an evening chat and friendly banter with the bar staff.
We've just come back from a most enjoyable weekend and will be back soon, as we haven't found a cheaper more convenient hotel and have been travelling to Bournemouth for a few years.
Extremely Clean, Friendly Accommodation with Great Off-Road Parking
We booked this hotel via their own website, which was met with a quick response.
Upon our arrival at the hotel, our first impressions were that it had great off-street parking (a rareity and a major plus, as parking is very hard to come by in the area). The location was excellent, a short walk to the beach, the night life, restaurants and town centre. Scott greeted us as we got out of our car with a warm and friendly smile :-) The hotel itself was very clean and extremely well presented.
Our room was maintained to a very high standard, great size, with a small but practical shower-room.
Breakfast offered a great choice of cereals, cooked to order Full English with a vegetarian option, juices and fruits. Alan cooked the meals, whilst we were entertained by Scott and Sam. We still want to know Alan's secret to the perfect poached egg!!
All in all, if you are looking for a great quality hotel, value for money, excellent meals and warm hospitality we would highly recommend the Claremont Hotel.
When I need to stay in Bournemouth, I will always stay with Scot and Alan
Thank you Scot and Alan.
I stayed there for over two months on business and I enjoyed it there. The Hotel is walking distance to all the night-life in Bournemouth and very close to the beach. My breakfasts were very nice and had to stop myself from taking the 'full English' every morning (the battle against the belly). Dedicated parking is definitely a big plus because it is extremely hard to come by on weekends and peak season.
When I arrived there I asked about having internet access and two days later the hotel was equipped with wireless broadband which help a lot when you are on business way from home.
Wonderful stay at Claremont Hotel with friendly hosts.
We stayed for a weekend at the Claremont Hotel in Bournemouth. We had a great time. The hosts Scott and Alan are friendly and helpful. There's parking outside the hotel which is quite rare in Bournemouth and it's walking distance to the seaside. Our room was very spacious. The ensuite shower could have been a bit bigger. In the lounge there's a small bar which opens in the evenings. Scott keeps you company while you have a drink in a very relaxing atmosphere. We almost didn't go out as it was so relaxing! There's a piano in the lounge and you are allowed to play. Alan was responsible for a wonderul home cooked breakfast. They cater for vegetarians as well. Our usual hotel (one of the top 10 hotels on tripadvisor) couldn't accommodate us over that weekend and they recommended the Claremont Hotel - unfortunately for them Claremont is now our hotel of preference. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. It's a clean and friendly hotel - well worth giving it a try.

... a cross between the old women who lived in a shoe and the highwayman - quite weird but it made you stop and have a look!! Then headed to the coast to Bournemouth to stretch our legs. There were people everywhere and even though it was only 23 degrees (felt like 18) lots of people sunbathing and swimming???? So many people after our quiet countryside. ...
... restaurant for a light lunch. We had a break before going back for the afternoon dancing class. When that ended we thought it was time for afternoon tea. You can't have afternoon tea without a natter with other people so we didn't finish that till quarter to five. So hey ho it was time to get dressed for dinner. Dress code tonight was "smart". ...
... coconut ice and take a bus to the station.
Transport was introduced from 1901 (electric trams, trolley buses and motor buses). In 1939, many schoolchildren were evacuated to Bournemouth however 219 people were killed during WWII in bombings in Bournemouth.
