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.

Due to snow We were unable to go, I being considerate phoned the hotel to inform them but we must stick strictly to T and C, so I lose my money. Many thanks to all concerned, OH! Merry Xmas!

Our room was wonderful. We had booked a sea view however the initial room we were given was a very small room indeed. Staff were all excellent at this hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back! The ambience of the hotel is lovely and the location is great too. One improvement would be to replaster and paint around the walls in the leisure /pool area.
