    Historical Traveler Reviews The Hermitage Hotel Bournemouth

    Hermitage Hotel - excellent value for money and fantastic service


    We organised a function for nearly 90 people over a weekend at the Hermitage Hotel. Steven Moss (Manager) and all of his staff were fantastic -service was great, nothing was too much trouble and the event ran like clockwork.

    Hotel rooms were all very well kept and impressed a lot of the guests with their high standard for Bournemouth.

    Hotel is beautifully located, right by the gardens and the seafront so something for everyone.

    Food for the event was excellent - 90 people all served piping hot food at the same time - and none of the usual bland function flavours.

    Highlight of the bar - definitely worth asking for a proper Pimms and Lemonade !

    Great weekend at The Hermitage


    We stayed at The Hermitage Hotel for a reunion between two families (German and Welsh), who had first met at this hotel 50 years ago.

    Everything went very smoothly and we all had a wonderful (if rather over-exuberant) evening! Charles and his team were excellent.

    Although this was a reunion of many people who had stayed at your hotel before (as long ago as 50 years!), this was actually my first visit - I'd have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to any of my friends in future and hope to have the opportunity to stay with you again - perhaps on a quieter occasion!

    Average hotel in great location


    I stayed here for one night in April 2005. The reception area was very nice, and the staff were mostly young and inexperienced but provided a good service. The room was small, and lacking style, although it was equipped with everything needed to push the hotel up the star rating - iron, trouser press, tea tray, tv. The hotel is obviously quite old, and the room felt it! The built in wardrobe was adequate (small and poorly accessible), the bathroom was adequate (despite a supporting pillar running in the middle of the small room, and several "unfinished" touches). The tv was small and only had 4 UK terrestial channels. Builders were working outside the window on a new addition to the structure - if you are sensitive to noise, avoid this hotel for the next couple of months).

    The location is great, squeezed between the pier and the BIC, and you can walk directly through the car park to the famous Bournemouth gardens. Apparently "most" rooms have a sea view, although in my room you had to stand right up against the window & look past the builders to see it!

    Overall, adequate facilities in a good location but not worth the price (I payed 90).

    Very good all round


    This is a very nice hotel and highly recomended, impeccably clean, nice rooms, very friendy and helpful staff. Great position, easy parking. Very good food and well presented. A good choice of wines at very good prices and the service is excellent.

    Overall, very good all round.

    The good reviews on this site persuaded me to book this hotel, and what a good decision it was! We'll definitely go back.

    Enjoyable stay


    Attended my works Xmas party on Saturday, beautiful hotel best location, walked through the gardens into town, restaurant very busy in the evening but service and food impeccable - highly recommended!!

    Short weekend


    This is the second time that I have stayed at the Hermitage Hotel this year and on both occasions have been most impressed by the ambience, friendliness of the staff and the excellent food. Having stayed at a number of hotels in Bournemouth over the years the Hermitage is now my favourite and I shall be returning there next year.

    Good facilities


    Never visted south coast until a few weeks ago for a conference. Nice room and food and a bonus of free wi-fi for my laptop!

    Great deal


    Me and my husband have been traveling the south of england and this bank holiday went to bournemouth to see if we could get a hotel for the night we were in luck. very nice hotel friendly staff.

I got all emotional...I didn't know I was such a good actor...Helen Mirren has nothing on me! The meal was absolutely lovely, and we tried something we have never even heard of...caper berries...Dave hated them, I loved them. We left a tip because we felt Amelia deserved one. Back at the hotel at 10.30, the door was already locked...thank goodness we remembered our ...

    ... it. I also sat and chatted with Erica from Baltimore, whom I met earlier in the cruise.

    The showers stopped and the clouds started to break up a bit, although the seas were still rocky. I walked around deck for a little while, snapping a few more pictures. The ropes course and waterslides were open, and being used. I think the water in the slides is heated – I noticed vapor coming off of the landing area for one of ...

    ... I bought curry powder! - back to see if there was anything worth buying. Viv bought cheddar and spices. We walked down the main drag to find us some pub food, eventually stopping in at the 'G and D' (George and the Dragon, what a great pub name) for some food. I had cumberland sausage, since it's on my list of things to eat, and Viv had egg and chips before we returned to the bus, talked some more, and went out to Stonehenge. It was a beautiful day.

    There's ...
