The iconic 4-star Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel overlooks Bournemouth Beach, described as a “glorious 7-mile strip of soft sand” by Lonely Planet. As indicated by its name, the setting of this clifftop hotel offers dramatic views over the Jurassic Coast -- a UNESCO World Heritage-listed coastline.
Originally built as a terrace of four large mansions, the property soon became popular with the aristocracy, thus assuring its continued success as a hotel. Bournemouth International Centre is an 8-minute walk away, and Bournemouth town centre is just over a mile away (about a 20-minute walk).
Within the property you will find the 2-AA-Rosette Highcliff Grill restaurant where, according to The AA Restaurant Guide 2015, the “up-to-date ingredients and techniques, backed by the provender of local suppliers, distinguish the extensive menus”. The restaurant serves seasonal British dishes and seafood using local ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner.The Highcliff Lounge and Bar, which boasts sea views, serves lighter meals and drinks, and its impressive afternoon tea -- served with Pimm's or prosecco if desired -- even has a gluten-free option.
The hotel has a gym, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool (open during summer months only), a sauna and a steam room, with complimentary fitness classes for guests. There is also a spa offering heath and beauty treatments by appointment for an extra charge.
This seafront property is described by The AA as a "majestic" and "very elegant and charming hotel" that is “impeccably maintained throughout". There are 160 bedrooms, many of which have sea views. Each one also has air conditioning, tea and coffee-making facilities and a 32-inch television. Wi-Fi is free and room service is available 24 hours a day.
