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 (free for guests).

Rooms are spacious and have traditional décor. Wi-Fi is free.

A number of things really, but the main thing is the beautiful public rooms and grounds.
Other Comments
On the plus side, the outdoor swimming pool is like swimming in a bath, the food is great, the staff are friendly, our room was enormous and they provided lovely Clipper organic tea and delicious biscuits in the rooms. There were a few anomalies like the warm water from the cold tap, the air conditioning in our room packing up and the sorry state of the men's toilet but these were minor when you look at the overall package. We loved it.

Other Comments
The hotel was very tired and in need of decorating and updating The swim pool and leisure facilities were dirty and in desperate need of updating. The menu was very limited and uninspiring. The breakfast was very disappointing with very limited choice

Service from all members of staff was good. The outdoor pool was open and an enjoyable experience. The restaurant seemed busy at times, although the staff were working flat out to keep the guests happy.
