Stayed here overnight on a business trip. Friendly staff, very nice room, very good breakfast (albeit not the "best in the world" as the sign outside claims), Will admit that the first impression was not great - it's not located in the nicest-looking street, and when I was there, the terrace was undergoing construction. Once inside, however, this was immediately...

We stayed for one night at The Urban Beach and really pleased with everything. Warm welcome from the staff on arrival to the buzzing bar/restaurant. Our room was lovely with a really nice and clean bathroom. We had dinner there also which was lovely too. The restaurant is quirky with a rustic feel. Definitely recommend this place and definitely would...

Stayed here for a weekend to see Mickey Flanagan (also excellent) and was delighted with the hotel. The bar is really good, great atmosphere and lively, serving excellent brasserie / gastro pub type food. Breakfasts are generous and great quality. All the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a nice outside area, which was being refurbished while we were...

I have stayed at the Urban Beach on a number of occasions and each time it has been fantastic. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful and make you feel like you are coming home at the end of each day. Each of the 5 different rooms I have stayed in have been spotlessly clean, very comfortable and...

I was looking for a lovely boutique hotel around the Bournemouth area for a Valentine's weekend getaway and found The Urban Beach Hotel online. Wonderful room, friendly and attentive staff and the bonus of the best full english breakfast I've had in years! We liked Boscombe too – 1930's pier and sandy beaches are just a walk away and then...

We booked our stay for a leisure weekend visiting friends. When we arrived we parked in the car park at the hotel which is just a stones throw away from a gorgeous sandy beach and the high street where the bars/restaurants are. It is like arriving at a holiday destination...it has a great atmosphere and is a hit with the...

Booked @ last minute as a 1 night getaway. Room was modern with very nice decor. Clean & tidy with a lovely comfy bed. We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was absolutely lovely. Good atmosphere in the bar. Staff were very friendly & welcoming. Breakfast was amazing freshly cooked. A great stay, would stay here again.

After a long day of meetings and many miles of driving I was greeted in the bar area and check in was extremely quick and easy. My bag was carried to my room which was great. The rooms are fantastic. Quirky with the most comfy bed in the world. I would never class this as a 3 star hotel at...

Cant say I have ever stayed anywhere like this before, I wondered exactly what I had booked. HOWEVER I need not have been concerned, the welcome was warm and friendly I was shown to a great room on the first floor. Very nice it was too, a short run to the beach. I bet the place is packed out in...
