Coastal cool at an Art Deco beachfront bolthole in Bournemouth’s upscale East Cliff neighbourhood - with breakfast, spa access and dinner at the two AA Rosette restaurant

Not many places on the south coast outshine Bournemouth. Not only does the seven-mile stretch of award-winning beaches take some beating, but the city has reinvented itself to become one of the coolest hubs in Dorset; mostly for its hip restaurants and bars, upscale shopping, and picturesque split-level gardens.  

So it’s simple to see why this Art Deco property overlooking the beachfront in East Cliff will have you chasing waves in no time. There’s an outdoor pool (open seasonally) area complete with Miami-inspired lido deck, green palms and chillout beds for sunny days, two superb restaurants for brasserie-style à la carte cuisine at the Ventana Grand Cafe or a three-course set menu at Mirabelle Restaurant, a divine day spa that’s just up the road, and a rather lovely lounge for kicking back with morning coffee, afternoon teas and end-of-day cocktails.

Good to know

Guests have access to the facilities at several of the hotel’s sister properties: The Suncliff Hotel, The Ocean Beach Hotel & Spa and the Best Western Hotel Royale.
