Historical Traveler Reviews Marlins Bournemouth
Value for money, clean, friendly and excellent location
My stay at Marlins helped me enjoy a fantastic break in Bournemouth.
The hotel is central to everything the place has to offer, and the friendly service made the holiday very special indeed.
My room was extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the professionally prepared breakfasts started the days perfectly.
All in all the owners did everything to make my stay enjoyable, and I would recommend Marlins to anyone wanting an excellent value hotel with a personal and friendly atmosphere, that's right in the centre of Bournemouth.
I certainly intend to return.
Marlins, A Wonderful Hotel in Bournemouth, UK
We had a wonderful time at this lovely hotel in the beautiful city of Bournemouth. I think it is under new management, and the owners were great: funny, warm, helpful and solicitous.
The food was terrific. It was traditional English but good. The breakfasts in particular were extraordinary, but a roasted parsnip soup with bread and cheese for lunch one day was also excellent.
The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. We walked along the ocean at their version of a boardwalk. We also found the hotel close to restaurants and nightlife.
I recommend Marlins Hotel completely
Such a friendly atmosphere
I had a very comfortable stay and the staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The position of the hotel is excellent being close to the sea and town which meant I could leave my car in the hotel car park and wonder.
A treat near the sea
My stay at Marlins hotel was a real treat. Very friendly welcome and the rooms are spotless.The English breakfast was beautifully cooked and of excellent quality. The hotel is a short walk to the sea front, the international centre and shops. Overall Marlins is a real gem and I would not hesitate to recomend the hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay, I will be back.
Just loved the attention,care and friendliness
We stayed at Marlins Hotel for over a week and found at all times that nothing was too much trouble for the friendly owners.The place was spotless and the breakfast each morning one of the best I have had for years.Freshly cooked and if you had a special request it was catered for with no problem.Thus I find the comments from the visitors to Marlins in October 2005 very difficult to understand.Were they staying in the same hotel that we were?We personally find that hard to believe.
Great Choice- Great Stay
Stayed 2 night in October prior to the QM2 sailing. I greatly enjoyed the comfortable and clean rooms that were also nicely appointed. Hosts Neil and Michael did everything possible to make sure our stay was great. and it was. Great breakfast, wonderful location, I would return again.
We stayed at the Marlins Hotel for 2 weeks and were appalled at the atrocious standards of cleaning there. For the fifteen days we never once saw any evidence of vaccuuming or dusting in any area of the hotel, the dining room was full of rubbish on the floor, breakfast time was calamitous;
Fabulous breakfast, excellent location
We stayed at Marlins and were treated with very friendly hospitality, a superb full English breakfast, and the hotel is in a prime location only a few minutes walk from everywhere you need to go. The four-poster room is a very romantic setting for a lovely weekend in Bournemouth!
Welcoming and great value for money
Marlins is a great value English seaside hotel. Very welcoming. Decent family room (albeit with a very small shower room) with nice touches. Makes a pleasant change from generic hotel rooms.
Neil was very helpful both with the booking and as we arrived quite late in the evening. He allowed our children an early breakfast of toast and fruit juice when we wanted to leave before they started serving the "full English". Breakfast, when we did have time to sample the full fare, was very good.
Good location for town and seafront - only a few minutes walk to both.
We would return.
