Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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 Oceanarium: The Bournemouth Aquarium, 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 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.

While we enjoyed our short break we were unable t use the pool, & poolside area due to noisy children and their parents taking over the area😔

The restaurant, public rooms and ease of parking (free)
Other Comments
Our room (110) seemed too hot most of the time, even in October. We prefer a cup and saucer for our tea, rather than a mug. We spent slightly more than our allowance on our evening meal for which we paid in cash afterwards, but this was added again onto our final account. Other than these small niggles, an excellent hotel with lovely friendly staff. Recommended!

Rooms decoration and furniture is dated, one window did not close properly but there is repair work being done, so looked like they are being replaced. Main shower did not work, but shower via bath taps worked.

Service in the restaurant our first evening was a bit haphazard but we learned later staff were still getting to grips with a new menu/system.
