Historical Traveler Reviews Village Urban Resort Bournemouth
This is an amazing hotel. Almost a destination in itself. You really need not leave the property. If you have kids, this is the place to stay. We went here for our honeymoon and had them add on the celebration package. They had the champagne, strawberries, chocolates, and robes waiting in our room upon arrival. The rooms are huge and well appointed with fans and air conditioners. The beds are so soft with very nice duvets and pillows. The drive is a little far to the beach and downtown , but after seeing some of the other hotels that are closer, I would rather stay here and drive the distance. This place is amazing. The food was incredible from Salingers. The pub was alot of fun. So many choices. The staff was very helpful and kind. For the money was a really good deal. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Village Hotel Bournemouth
Stayed with my husband in this hotel for 2 nights, the hotel is very nice except our room was next to a flat roof and had an air con unit it in and a fan that didn't blow and still the room was unbearably hot. The food was nice, we stayed on a db&b rate which was reasonably priced. Would go again but would ask for a room not near the flat roof again!
Worth the stay
We arrived at the Village on Tuesday 15th August for a much needed three night short break.
The reception staff were a little confused at first, and we found that although we had requested two rooms on the same floor, or very close by, we were given one on the second floor, for our children ( ages 11 & 23 thankfully )and our room was on the top floor.
Our room wasn't ready so we took the girls to theirs, only to find that they had been given a smoking room, when we had requested an non smoking room, as my daughter has an allergy
Never the less the room was clean, and as the web site stated.
My Partner and i had to wait almost an hour for our room to be ready even thought check in should be 3 pm, there seemed to be a lack of communication somewhere on reception, and we had to ring, and then go down to sort things out.
We got to our oom at 4pm, and found being on the top floor it was very hot !! thankfully the weather wasn't very hot that week, or it would have been awful, several other people we met who were also on the same floor had the same problem. The hotel did supply us with a fan, but you would think that it being a new hotel, air con would have been a good idea, with the top floor rooms being smaller than the others, and very hot !
Moans over, we are not the sort of people to complain at just about anything trivial, so e decided to make alllowances, and enjoy our stay.
Thing got a lot better from then on, and the staff in general were lovely, and always did what they could for you.
The pool was lovely, and my daughter enjoyed the Health club,.
There was a v good Breakfast buffet, hot & cold selections, and the only complaint most people had were that it was very slow to be re stocked so there were always a few items missing.
We Ate in the hotel one night at Salingers, and found it to be good quality, and the waiting staff excellent.
We also used the Copra coffee shop each day, after using the pool, and couldn't really fault it, the staff were great.
We ate out at a great restaurent called 'Gilbeys', in the Liston hotel in Boscombe, which even though Boscombe seems to have a bad reputation with the locals, was a fantastic night, the food was of a quality you would expect to pay at least £65-70 a head where we live, and was only £ 30 a head for a 4 course meal with canapes, and home made choclates with the coffee, and they altered the menu to suit a child as they no longer had a childrens menu. Go there , we will be going back and to stay at the hotel.
we would stay at the Village hotel again, and would recommend it to all ages.
Myself and my partner fancied a break from London and decided to head to the coast. We could not have picked a better location as far as we're concerned. The hotel was spotless, the staff are friendly and very helpful and the use of the leisure club was included in the price of our room, as was breakfast too. The best thing for us had to be our meal at one of the three restaurants on site, called Salingers. Every course was perfect and the price was very reasonable. You couldn't ask for anything more in a hotel at a very reasonable price. You're only a 10 minute drive from the beach and shopping centre and if you needed any essentials, there is a Tesco within walking distance. JUST GO THERE!!! My only grievance is I had to go back to work after my stay.
WHAT CAN I SAY!!!
What can I say! This is an absolute wonderfull hotel and leisure centre.
The hotel is new, the rooms are clean and large, with an excellent bathroom, the breakfast is varied and plentifull.
The check in at reception was quick and very informative as to what the hotel had to offer.
There was a coffee bar, an excellent village pub and a very good restaurant called sallingers.
The leisure centre is first class and is part of the hotel package.
It may be a bit far from the beaches of bournemouth, approx 10 min by car or 20 min by yellow bus number 2, but for the facilities and service provided this is really not a problem.
I must mention the staff, any member of staff that I approached was very helpful and nothing was problem. This place is proving to be a huge success, so book up quickly and see for yourself.
Good value for money
We only stayed here for one night but it was a lovely stay. The hotel is new and decor is of a good standard. The standard room was spacious and nicley decorated. We had a look at the leisure club and swimming pool and they looked fantastic, if we were staying an extra night then we would have used these facilities.
Breakfast here was of a good standard and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location of this hotel isnt in the heart of Bournemouth, it is opposite the hospital, this wasnt an issue for us. It only took us 5 - 10 minutes to drive to the town centre and beach.
We would stay at this hotel again as the facilities were excellent and it was great value for money.
We recently enjoyed a two night stay at this hotel. Being a new hotel everything is clean and new. The staff are friendly, efficient and only to happy to help except when you check out, then you find you are no longer able to use the hotel facilities. We wanted to have a quick swim before we left the hotel and was told we couldn't because we had checked out. So beware if you want to use the hotel lovely swimming pool or health suite (both very good) on your last day, do so before 11am. The breakfast on Saturday was a bit chaotic. We had to wait for 20 minutes for a table to become available. The dining area is not big enough for the size of hotel. Breakfast was the typical buffet offering although the food was very good they were slow in replenishing. Consequently, something was always missing and no sooner had they replaced the missing item and they would run out of something else. The location of the hotel is disappointing its opposite Bournemouth main hospital and it's about 10 minutes (by car) away from Bournemouth centre/beaches. Would I stay again? If the price is right definitely, otherwise a hotel closer to Bournemouth amenities would be preferable.
I loved this hotel. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious, even though it was only a standard room. The decor was lovely and the atmosphere was welcoming. There were a lot of business people around who seemed to think they owned the place, but we were staying there during the week so it wasn't surprising. There was a good range of food on offer, although the Village pubs menu wasnt the most varied, the food was great and there was plenty of it. The swimming pool is gorgeous and the health and beauty area was amazing. Would definately stay again.
We stayed here for one night on 13th january. I have nothing but good things to say and would highly recommend it. Lovely and clean. pool, spa etc great. breakfast is ace and the wee pub inside the hotel is really good atmosphere. staff were very friendly. totally relaxed chill out place. loved it !!!!
Great hotel and spa
This hotel had only been opened for 2 weeks when we stayed there, and to our delight there were no signs of teething troubles. The staff were very professional and effecient and the room was immaculate and spacious. Unfortunately we were only there for a night and didn't have chance to use the spa facilities, but they looked fantastic.

I arrived at Heathrow just after 4:30am. No planes are allowed to land before 4:30am so we had to do a bit of a circle first. We were the first plane to land so getting through customs was a breeze. After customs, I walked out to see a huge line of taxi drivers holding signs. I thought I'd never be able to find mine, but then I saw it. The driver was so friendly and helped me with my bags. I felt like ...
... dressed, putting on make up and doing my hair. Lol. George decided to just wear his dinner suit tonight and keep the kilt for the captains's cocktail party. I wonder if the fact that the captain is a lady had any influence on his decision. Evening meal was gorgeous as usual. We both had lobster for our main and strawberries poached in Prosecco for ...
Quiet day today inside the ship but it is blowing a force 8 gale outside. The sea is very choppy as a result. Feels as if we are going over potholes ( that is not a misspelling for portholes). Just did lots of eating, exploring and shopping. A lot of people were feeling unwell and have decided to stay in their rooms. ...
... other cruises. He is very friendly and spins great music. The other DJ on board is Arias – he was spinning at Spike H2O during the sailaway party, and he also had a good selection.
A couple other notes – we learned that 2,853 passengers are on board, well below the ship’s capacity of 4,028 (at double occupancy). Norwegian did not intend to sail full, as it’s a new ship and some kinks still need to be worked out. ...
... pictured was certainly not bright....rain began to fall and the sky became very dark and English grey, but it passed over and onwards we zoomed, now venturing in to the outside lane and passing at 70mph. By now we'd got the GPS sorted or so we thought, and opted to try and find a macca's for a comfort break and snack. Well it kept taking us around and around the one way streets in the city centre, until I finally opted to go with the sign posts and head for ...
