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 located 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 Bournemouth Oceanarium, where you can see humboldt penguins, green sea turtles and blacktip reef sharks, among other species. Bournemouth's train station and high-street shops are 15 minutes' walk. 

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 a 7-metre indoor pool, a sauna and a gym (free for guests).

Rooms are spacious and have traditional décor. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Enjoyed Most: The hotel was lovely and the xmas decs were elegant. The restaurant staff were extremely attentive and the food was good.
Other Comments: Unfortunately the majority of the restaurant was taken up by a very loud and raucous xmas party and we struggled to hear each other speak as we were only separated by a couple of pillars. We were advised we had an excess to pay for our meal on checking out but we had not had any extras and had to contest this which was eventually accepted once we went through the menu with the receptionist.Because the weather was mild the room was far too hot. I was kept awake by party of people smoking and partying below window until 1.00 am. Wld need to check no parties before staying again!
