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 hotel is in a great location 10 minutes walk into the town. The food is excellent we ate in the restaurant the first night and then in the bar. I could recommend this hotel to anyone. It has a nice indoor swimming pool and sauna. Great sea views.

Birthday night away was booked for my partner on a special travelzoo deal. It was a perfect night away with everything going smoothly and the dinner was excellent and the staff very helpful. I booked an upgrade room facing the sea which was worth it to enjoy the sea view. The only slight disappointment was the internal pool & fitness area which needs upgrading and the changing facilities as well. It was nothing to complain about however and I would use the same facilities again. Would love to enjoy a longer stay at this excellent hotel.
