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.

We very much enjoyed our stay on a Travelzoo deal ... dinner bed & breakfast. Breakfast & dinner were lovely. Also had an early morning swim in the lovely indoor pool & jacuzzi. All staff very helpful & pleasant.

We both felt the room we stayed in, although large in size, with a very comfortable big bed, was in great need of redecoration. It looked very drab & disappointing. We also had to ask for extra pillows on the bed as only one flat pillow each, provided on the bed when we checked in. Two pillows each should be standard on all hotel beds

Lovely, huge hotel on the seafront. We upgraded to a suite which was really spacious and very comfortable as was the bed. We also had 2 balconies but the weather was really conducive to sitting out there for very long. We also had the free use of the spa facilities but we didn't use them. Maybe next time.
