Bournemouth Hotels Accommodation
Bournemouth’s reputation as a leading holiday destination hasn’t diminished since its rise to coastal holiday fame in the Victorian period, and our three Bournemouth hotels provide the same level of service and quality which drew in the Victorians all those years ago.
The Cumberland Hotel is the jewel in our crown, recognised as one of the most fashionable properties in the UK. It boasts:
- Stunning sea views
- An outdoor pool, making it one of the few hotels in Bournemouth with swimming facilities
- Striking architecture with a Miami Art Deco theme, where you can relax in the decadent glamour of the 1930s whilst still enjoying the urban chic style.
That’s not to say our other hotels aren’t comparable, of course, and guests can make use of the many facilities on offer in all three of our Bournemouth sites. The Suncliff Hotel, right next door to The Cumberland Hotel, holds the majority of our leisure facilities:
- An indoor heated pool
- Spa tub and sauna
- Gym facilities
- A tournament-sized squash court open to guests.
Meanwhile, The Cliffeside Hotel has a much more intimate feel, boasting:
- Its own outdoor pool
- Our superb contemporary restaurant, providing meals made with fresh, locally sourced produce
- A bar complete with a terrace that has stunning sea views.
Attractions in Bournemouth
As tempting as spending your entire stay in our lavish hotels may be, whether you are here on holiday or on business making use of the Bournemouth conference facility we have available, you’ll want to get out and enjoy Bournemouth too . You can head for Bournemouth Gardens to enjoy the Pine Walk, just as the Victorians did, and attend the open air art exhibition held every summer. There are also plenty of boutique beauty shops around the town just waiting to be discovered.
If you’re looking for something totally different, why not head to the Bournemouth Oceanarium, which offers a tour through the world’s oceans? Or you could take a trip up in the Bournemouth Eye, a helium filled balloon that’s chained to the ground, but offers you views from 390 feet up and is on the doorstep of our Bournemouth hotels. You also have easy access to Poole harbour and Christchurch, or can take the short trip to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Monkey World, Compton Acres, and the Bovington Tank Museum.
The Bourne Free Pride Festival takes place annually in July and has been going from strength to strength. Each year, performers, entertainers and supporters turn up for a weekend that celebrates diversity in the community and join in with Bournemouth’s Gay Pride march. We believe that our hotels are the perfect fit for gay and lesbian travellers, and welcome guests coming for the Bourne Free Pride Festival each year.
Our hotels are the perfect place from which to explore the Jurassic Coast, the New Forest and the Purbeck Hills, the first being a World Heritage Site and the latter two falling inside Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can head out on a long, tiring but gratifying walk one day, then spend the next recuperating with us.
Finally, anybody who appreciates a great meal or night out will find themselves perfectly at home in Bournemouth. If you are staying at one of our wedding venues in Bournemouth, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs waiting for you in the centre of town, and you won’t be short of concerts and performances, with the Bournemouth International Centre, 1812 and an O2 Academy all putting on live music. Or you could enjoy an evening in one of the many beachfront cafes or bars that overlook the sea.
