    Historical Traveler Reviews The Hermitage Hotel Bournemouth

    Hermitage Hotel - excellent value for money and fantastic service

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    ... when he took me out to the car and I saw it was a super flash grey Mercedes! The drive to the LIC office in Sixpenny Handly was about 40 min. Quite quick as there was not a lot of traffic. Drove past the cathedral which looked stunning. I hope to go back there and have a good look at it. Once in SH, I met Natasha and Robert. I got all my gear together, and signed all my paperwork. I also ...

    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 ...

    Next was Exmouth for a quick stop before heading in to Padstow. Our farm cottage is just gorgeous. It's 2 story with the most amazing views over the valley. Very peaceful location although the road in has some serious ...

    Tuesday, April 30 - Southampton and Embarkation

    ... I have Gold Latitudes status, that line was very long and I was directed into the general line that looked a little shorter. Between the security and check-in queues, it took about one hour to get my key card and head for the ship. I boarded around 1:15 pm.

    The gangway at Southampton only reached Deck 5 (a passenger deck), so the first impressions of the ship were of an elevator lobby. I immediately rode up to Deck 11 and proceeded ...
