"Very good value for money. Big clean bedroom with two 3ft beds pushed together and made up as a double which was lovely. The lighting was a bit dim but ok. It had a lovely big en suite. The welcome pack was appreciated and the prosecco! Every member of staff (all foreign) was helpful and cheerful. The 3 course meal was good value for money although one of the starters (haloumi fries) was unavailable. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. Thank you."

Overview

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.

Had lovely rooms 214 and 215 for 2 nights, however the heat was overbearing, uncomfortably hot and unhealthy for sleeping. The staff would not turn down as other guest rooms had complained about cold rooms and all heating regulated separately. Poor service at evening meal.

Third visit here through Travelzoo. Great location and nice hotel with pleasant helpful staff. Food choices this time not as good as 1st and 2nd visit but overall good value for money.

Everything was perfect. Hotel was easy to find and in a great position, high on the cliff top. We had a fantastic room with a large panoramic window overlooking the sea. Our room was large and spacious with a massive, very comfortable bed. All the staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. We stayed for 2 nights and ate Dinner on both evenings. Food was excellent.

We had a great mini break away … cannot fault the hotel and staff. I wish we'd booked for longer. We've stayed at many hotels in Bournemouth and this was by far the best so far, we'll definitely be going back.

Room 232 was a bit noisy at times during the night because of a very large black extractorfan/pipe structure just outside the fire escape next door. Next time I'd pay extra for a sea view room. Excellent staff very attentive. Restaurant very good, especially the breakfast. Surprised there is no disability ramp access front or back to access the building - once inside you'd be ok. Pool, spa and sauna were lovely but the changing rooms could do with a refurb. Very good location and the Travelzoo deal was good value. Would come again.
