The Savoy Hotel
Travel Blogs from Bournemouth
This morning we walked to the city and went to Liberty's of London. Liberty 's is one of the oldest shops in London and was built prior to the great fire of London in 1666. Later in the day, we went for dinner at the Savoy and the show the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre.
... arrival of my first nephew. As if that wasn’t enough, there was plenty more in store in August and before we knew it, Russell was hurtling towards his new job in early September.
I rented out my flat again and packed my bits and bobs up to move up to Russell’s flat in Bath. For the first few months of our travels I was adamant that I would return to living by the coast but something changed nearer the end and ...

... night. We chose to have dinner in and had a lovely meal. After dinner we had another drink while we took a walk outside, then came in and sat in the lounge to discussed what we would do the following day. Leonie and Glenn thought they might stay another night as it was such a beautiful place and they didn't have the schedule we have. We needed to be in Oxford on the 21st as we had booked accommodation there. We all went off to bed to think on ...
An early start was in order today as we knew we had to get to Hilltop as it opened to get on the car park. After a brisk journey, including the sight of some early morning skinny dipping, we arrived and queued. Very excited and impressed with the whole thing, the house and garden were amazing. The house is like a time capsule and you can see her inspirations at every turn. If you visit, don't forget to look out for her books opened to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Savoy Hotel Bournemouth
Went on Shearings Holiday for 3 nights at The Savoy Hotel, Bournemouth with trepidation after reading report of Oct. 2005. However, were pleasantly surprised. Clean room, pristine bedding, no drafts and bathroom in full working order and very clean.
Food was excellent - plenty of choice for all meals served by very friendly staff - all piping hot (the meals that is!).
Entertainment was good although being 8 of us we made our own entertainment.
Hotel could probably do with a lick of paint and a little upgrading but nothing that would put us off from going again. A very pleasurable 3 night stay and highly recommended at a very reasonable price.
Arrived on friday night (8 of us) with the minimum of fuss at receiption. Room was large,warm, clean and tidy. Bathroom was OK with shower over the bath.
Dining room was very impressive,decked out for Christmas. dinner was excellent with a large choice of dishes for the 5 course meal. Service was excellent.
Breakfast was to the same high standard food and service, with superb views across the hotel lawns (including squirrels and a fox!). Entertainment is what tou make it, and we enjoyed all that was provided. Dance floor a little crowded at times but this added to the atmosphere. We hope to go back again.
We have just returned from a Self-Drive 2 Day break to the Savoy Hotel, Bournemouth, booked through Shearings. The room was dirty,the carpets had not been hoovered, the bed covers were threadbare and the Windows did not shut properly so their was a permanent draft. The bathroom taps were disgusting the shower unusable and the tiles were black!
Revisit this hotel
having just returned from a selfdrive 3night break, with my husband and 2 friends to the savoy hotel,i would just like to say to previous critics, go back and revisit. yes the decor in places, needs rework but beds were spotless, bathroom clean and towels changed everyday.food could not be faulted, nor any of the staff.we all had a very good wkend weather and all.
Just read the review headed 'dosshouse'. Simply did not recognise it as the Savoy Hotel Bournemouth that we stayed in July/August 93. Our room was spotless. The bed clean and most comfortable. The service was brilliant, and the food excellent. We could not fault it. Never heard anyone complain during our stay. Tried on three occasions to book for this year (94), but the place was full. Will most cetrtainly be back next year.
We stayed in this hotel a few weeks ago. It was dirty and not the sort of accommodation you expect when you pay £295.00 for 4 nights. I would stay away
A grand name for a CRAP place
This place was manky in 2002,I was there when the Edinburgh guy was there,it was reported to Environmental Health,any work would have been an improvement,I think if you are used to low standards you will be happy here,the place was really manky,it was stinking we haven`t been back for a year,the review from the Edinburgh gent was in September 2002 not 2003 as he was in Jamaica for the whole of September with me and my Fraulien Maisy.Andus Rewttf

No, we don't work for Wallace Arnold. We just requested a quiet room far away from all the nightly noise of their regular entertainment and were blessed with a fantastically quiet Friday to Monday stay.
