Being the largest resort in Dorset, Bournemouth boasts a large number of hotels, catering for families, couples and groups. So whether you are looking for a week long family holiday, luxury short break or weekend escape, you’ll find a fantastic hotel in Bournemouth.
Along the seven miles of beach there are many independent and family-run hotels as well as branded chain hotels offering you an amazing holiday break.
Many of the hotels in the coastal East Cliff and West Cliff areas offer 3 or 4-star accommodation. Some also offer spa facilities with indoor pools, jacuzzis and pamper treatments.
And there are budget options too for those wanting to keep the costs down. You can find both independent and chain hotels offering great deals and value for money during your holiday to Bournemouth.
Bournemouth’s B&B’s and guesthouses offer a welcoming home from home during your stay. Many are ideally located in picturesque clifftop settings and you’ll never be far from a beach or somewhere to eat out.
One of the best things about staying in a traditional seaside B&B has got to be the friendly and experienced owners. Not only will they cook you an amazing breakfast in the morning, they’ll also be able to give you some great advice on the best things to see and do in Bournemouth.
Although there are luxury 4 and 5 star options, your accommodation doesn't have to break the bank as there are good quality 2-star choices too. So whatever your budget, you’ll find the perfect place to rest your head while staying in Bournemouth.
If you’re looking for somewhere to stay that offers you the freedom to choose your mealtimes and come and go as you please, self catering is a great choice.
There are large houses, studio flats and even beach lodges to choose from. Each with their own unique style and charm. Just perfect for the care-free traveller who wants to sample everything that Bournemouth has to offer.
Bournemouth has a unique selection of 24 self catering Beach Lodges, which sleep up to four adults and two children. Just metres away from the beach, you can step outside onto the golden sand or sit on the decking and enjoy the sunset over a glass of bubbly.
There is also one accessible Lodge, with access for a wheelchair user, throughout the ground floor area, so everyone can enjoy the perfect break by the sea. This Lodge sleeps up to five (four adults and one child).
So what are you waiting for? There is a huge range of options to choose from, most of which are available to book online.
