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. Wi-Fi is free.

The room we had was tired and the bathroom felt dirty due to cracked and broken tiles and missing grouting. Fittings were faded and worn. Outside the room were at least four large noisy extractor fans which meant we did not get a good night's sleep on either night.

The chamber maid was thorough.

Meals seemed as though the dishes had been prepared much earlier so food was already dried out. Even breakfast fried eggs had been cooked so far in advance they were hard. Made two requests for an alarm call. The first never happened at all (no apology, just "I'll put it in the diary") The second was 40 mins later than requested. Admin staff disorganized: couple in front were overcharged for parking and the person in front of them were billed for an additional room!!!!!

The East Cliff area was nice and the hotel in a very good position. Nice grounds with heated outdoor swimming pool. My friend and I were delighted with the large room and it's seaview, the package was very good value for money.
