Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton is a grand old seaside hotel with well-tended gardens and impressive views of the coastline and the Isle of Wight. The hotel is on East Cliff, a 5-minute walk along a zigzag path from Bournemouth's 7-mile-long beach.

The hotel is 15 minutes' walk along the waterfront from Bournemouth Pier and Oceanarium: The Bournemouth Aquarium, where you can see humboldt penguins, green sea turtles and blacktip reef sharks, among other species. Bournemouth's railway station and high-street shops are 15 minutes' walk away. 

The New Forest is 20 minutes' drive away. This 220-square-mile national park is home to ponies and deer, and has many walking, cycle and nature trails to explore. We recommend the deer-viewing platform at Bolderwood, around 30 minutes' drive from the hotel; three circular walks start at the car park and visitor centre there.

Frederick's, the hotel's restaurant, serves traditional British dishes in an impressive high-ceilinged dining room with sea views. There's also a lounge for light bites and afternoon tea, and a club-style bar. Other facilities include indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna and a gym.

Rooms are spacious and have traditional décor. Feature/View Rooms have sea views. Wi-Fi is free.

What let the hotel down was the tea/coffee facilities at breakfast, very poor. I would have preferred to be offered a pot of tea or filtered coffee not a coffee machine

Other Comments
The staff in the restaurant and the quality of the food. It took 2 hours and 20 minutes to get three courses and we had to chase the staff constantly. The staff were morose and miserable. We had lamb rump and asked for it rare and it came out well done and the dauphinois potato were like lumps of concrete

The indoor swimming pool is advertised but it is not always available as they hold swimming lessons for non resident children during the day and evenings which severely restricts access. The rooms are also a bit tired.

Other Comments
Was a nice hotel, we have been several times before. Food and service good but the hotel is now rather tired and needs refurbishment to the rooms and communal areas.

The room was large and clean. Bed was comfortable but furniture had seen better days. Spa needs upgrading. Good value for money through Travelzoo.
