    Historical Traveler Reviews The Urban Beach Hotel Bournemouth

    Great Hotel, loved it

    from

    We found this hotel by chance on the internet and thought it sounded to good to be true, but it was great. Mark (the owner) is really friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel itself is being totally refurbished in a contemporay style, the furnishings in the bedrooms were lovely as was the lounge and bar area. The atmosphere is really informal, you can even borrow DVD's to watch in your room! The bedrooms had fairtrade tea/coffee etc, DVD/TV, comfy beds and really hot water. The breakfast had a buffet as well as cooked to order full english which was delicious. We are looking forward to going back sometime soon, definately recommended

    Fabulous new hotel

    from

    My boyfriend and I have just returned from a weekend at the Urban Beach Hotel. Due to horrendous traffic we didn't arrive until 9pm but were warmly welcomed by Mark,the owner. We put the bags in our room and then went and sat in the bar and had a relaxing drink. Mark chatted to us and brought us pizza (very good!), then we watched a DVD in our room. The breakfasts were delicious and all the staff were friendly and welcoming. I thoroughly recommend this hotel to everyone.I hope to return there soon!

    Contemporary Chic comes to a traditional seaside resort

    from

    My partner Danny and I have just returned from a fantastic weekend at the newly refurnished Urban Beach hotel. This stylish contemporary hotel is a refreshing change to the typical traditional hotels found at this seaside resort.

    From arrival to departure, the warm and welcoming reception we received by Mark and his staff further enhanced our stay....as well as the delicious breakfast each morning!!!

    Situated a few minutes from the seafront and a great local restaurant (Pier Point), this well priced hotel is a definate must.

    The team at Urban Beach could not do enough for us and I am looking forward to booking my next break with them soon.

    What a fantastic hotel

    from

    When you first drive up to the hotel, you are greeted by a beautiful building.

    Upon entering the recently renovated hotel, you are greeted by the owner Mark, who is a born host. Throughout our stay he was witty, pleasant and attentive.

    There were seven of us occupying three rooms. Two of the rooms were completed but one was to be done in the next week. All of them were clean and very pleasant but the finished bedrooms were outstanding and very tastefully finished.

    Can't wait to visit again.

    Boutique Hotel B & B Prices

    from

    Family party comprising elderly parents, two children under 14 and three adults had family crisis and needed somewhere to stay at shorty notice. From the initial phone call Mark, the owner, could not have been more helpful managing to accommodate us all. We did not know what to expect and were delighted when we arrived. The decor was contemporary, but very tasteful, the beds very comfortable, facilities exemplorary and an excellent standard of cleanliness. The floral displays could put a London hotel to shame. Would I go there again, you bet, hopefully in the next few weeks. PS food was excellent to. New coffee machine worth every penny!

    A hidden wave of chic in a sea of chinz...

    from

    Earlier this month I stayed in one of the friendliest, hippest hotels to appear in Bournemouth for a long time (maybe ever!).

    The Urban Beach is exactly the place to go if you want to relax, eat great food (the breakfasts are just perfect), see the sea (its 2 mins away) meet great people (the couple that run the hotel have just moved from London and are so chatty - especially Fiona who might just be your best friend by the time you leave.)

    All of this.... and its stylish too! Quite an achievement. Its a little bit of London cool, by the beach. I wish the owners every success - they deserve it.

    Fun, friendly and very stylish place to stay

    from

    What a great place! Lovely to find a really beautiful old building being restored to it's original charm but with an extra cool vibe.

    Had a fab stay with delicious food found in both in the Urban Beach and local restaurants. Really friendly hosts, very comfy beds, funky flowers everywhere and Colin the cat was cute too!

    Relaxing hotel near surfing beach

    from

    I was very impressed with this relaxed and cool hotel. It was perfect for surfing (or my bad attempt of trying to) while my girlfriend chilled out in the relaxed atmosphere of the Hotel. The breakfast was great and we had a nice dinner in town ('Himilaya', Nepalise Restaurant). It took less than two hours from Tooting Bec, London.

    A breath of fresh air

    from

    Staying at the Urban Beach hotel is a breath of fresh air in more ways than one. Not only is the hotel a short walk from the rolling waves but there is not a whiff of floral wallpaper in sight. A very funky and modern hotel, together with the friendliness and laid back approach of the young couple that run it, made it one of the most chilled places I have stayed for a really long time. Colin the cat is just adorable!

    Friendly and Relaxing

    from

    A great friendly place to stay. Well priced, excellent food and the beach 2 minutes walk... perfect... Cheers Mark et al.

    ... a good start! It's brewed locally too which is cool. I had a delicious starter of king prawns with butter garlic and herbs, then had a main of a veal sirloin. The veal is sourced from local farms, and was amazing! Don't think all my food will consist of such nice meals, but I thought I'd live it up while LIC were paying! Was too full to order any dessert, but the sticky toffee pud would have been my ...

    So far this morning have just relaxed. Not warm enough yet to sit outside so have just continued doing nothing much. This afternoon need to be spent making ourselves beautiful for the first formal night. At our age that takes a lot of time- thought I'd better say it first before someone else does. George getting ready in his kilt takes much longer than I ...

Unfortunately a sudden lurching movement of the ship ended up with all of George's tray sliding off the table all over me and onto the floor. The evening was spent as usual eating and ...

    ... see it are accommodated.

    After the performance, we went to Bliss for a drink. The entrance to this nightclub is easy to miss, as it’s just a doorway off the casino. Bliss is long and narrow, with comfortable seating at one end. A bar stretches along one side, and the DJ sets up at the other end. Half of the walls are fitted with LED lights, but they were not on tonight. DJ Keith was spinning tonight – Jake and I know him from ...

    Brighton and Bournemouth Seaside Escape

    A travel blog entry by philwill14 on Dec 16, 2012

    ... to a stop, I couldn't believe that 5 lanes of traffic on one of Britain's biggest motorways was going nowhere. I guess we could liken it to road works on the Bruce Highway, but with 1000 times more cars ha ha. The delay lasted about 20 min and we started creeping slowly forward to find that some turkey had clipped the side wall and then cleaned up a truck and another car, lousy pommy drivers. As we charged on towards Britain's premier seaside resort ...
