"Lovely hotel well located with sea views. Lovely room with very comfortable bed. The evening meal in Fredericks was outstanding. All staff were wonderfully polite and were very happy to have a chat with you - they clearly enjoyed looking after you during your stay."

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 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.

Check in was from 3pm and it appeared that no one was getting their room before then even if it was ready - we are usually allowed 'early check' in if the room is ready at almost any other hotel we have visited. Small criticism, but this would have taken the experience from excellent to perfect.
