Where to Stay in Bournemouth?
There are plenty of hotel deals to be had in this pretty seaside town. Although Bournemouth is on the coast, the centre of the town lies inland, with The Square being home to the majority of the shops, bars and restaurants. From The Square, the upper and lower Pleasure Gardens descend to the seafront and the pier. The town is easy to navigate on foot.
Bournemouth hotels vary from cosy family-run B&B guesthouses to imposing seafront hotels. Bournemouth B&Bs are in plentiful supply and tend to be found dotted around the town centre. For a room with a view, opt for one of the many guesthouses along Cliff Road.
For the best Bournemouth hotel deals, opt to travel out of the peak summer season. From October to March, there are still plenty of attractions to be enjoyed, while many hotels offer low season special offers for a bargain break.
Bournemouth Accommodation Options
While there are plenty of hotel rooms in Bournemouth, if you’re planning on travelling in peak season it is worth booking early to get a good hotel deal.
For an indulgent treat, pick one of the large guest houses along the coast road that offer excellent views and cosy facilities. The Avalon Beach hotel, Hermitage Hotel and Langtry Manor are all well-rated options close to Bournemouth attractions including award-winning gardens, numerous cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.
There are usually some good last-minute hotel deals to be found if you are flexible, but be prepared to travel at short notice. If you are on a tight budget, visit Bournemouth in the autumn or winter when cheap accommodation can be found, with plenty of hotels offering deals including free meals, excursions and additional nights for free on offer.
