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.

My husband & I had a lovely night away. The food was good & staff were helpful.
Other Comments
The hotel was having problems with the key cards when we arrived but staff could not have been more apologetic & helpful. Staff had to accompany us to our room a number of times with the master key but they were always cheerful & apologising for the inconvenience it caused. Excellent customer service!

Checked in on time with little problem, reception staff very friendly as were all staff we encountered. Food was excellent, and room very large if a little tired. Enjoyed the location on the cliff top and would certainly visit again

Our room was very large(good) but very cold(when we got to the room) and did not heat up during the evening. Our meal was pleasant for 1st & 3rd course but my lasagne was dreadful. Dry, very little sauce and unappetising.
Other Comments
All staff were pleasant and helpful, perhaps I should have returned the main course.

Other Comments
We stay in Bournemouth on a regular basis and this has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed in.

Busy with Xmas parties and wedding receptions but we were advised that an earlier evening meal would ease the pressure and this suited us. Room 104 was exceptional and perfect for us. A 2 hr power cut caused a major problem for the hotel staff but the power was returned just before 23.00hrs. Breakfast could be improved with a more fruit selection and hotter coffee. A great break
Other Comments
The staff coped admirably with the power cut and the disgruntled party guests. We had a great time. Breakfast could be improved with a better fruit selection and a black / red berries bowl

Was an older hotel but was still lovely, clean and tidy...full of Christmas decorations! Service was excellent.

It was in walking distance down to the pier and Oceanarium where there were also Christmas lights and a big wheel.
