Second time here and still good. Alan & Chris looked after us well and didn't mind our early requests for dinner (5.00 - 5.30) to suit our young daughter. Remembered us from last time and were very welcoming. Breakfasts were good, evening meals were superb, made sure my daughter was well cared for, she couldn't stop asking for the prawns!...

Definitely not the best place we have stayed in for the money we had to pay. We were tempted by the good reviews on Trip advisor and good location but would not recommend. Room seemed ok at the first glance but desperately needs some TLC -lampshades tilted, chips on the bedside light (switch), ceiling light has some burns with terrible...

Small private family-run establishment. Typical "attentive" service that you get in this sort of place, some people love it, others find it a bit too intrusitve. Good size room, huge flat screen telly. Downside to the room was the fact that the weather was hot and as a result the room got very stuffy - could have done with a...

Thank you for your balanced review. As always we will act upon constructive feedback and I will certainly review the facilities in the bathroom. The Hotel is clearly marketed as a small family run establishment with excellant personal service. I am therefore at a loss to understand why any guest who does not want personal contact would choose us against...

Thank you to the proprietor and staff for a lovely stay at East Cliff Cottage Hotel. We stayed here as part of a last minute trip to Bournemouth for the weekend. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and told we had been upgraded to a more superior room than we had booked. We were really pleased- the room was full...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. Our family room was clean and spacious and the lounge and dining areas were extremely well presented. The service was excellent, the family at the hotel could not have been more accommodating. I have 2 children aged 2 and 5 and they were made to feel very welcome. We'll be visiting again.

my carer had to bring the single mattress into our double room. It was because there was a lack of disabled facilities. 3 stars? i wouldnt rate it 1! we got a family room on the 1st floor, so we found it hard walking up& down the stairs. £75 per night is not good enough, depending on the quality of...

Oh dear! As with most responsible hoteliers we accept and act upon where possible constructive criticism. Review sites are an excellant tool for both Hoteliers and the travelling public when they are used responsibly. However when they are used for vindictive purposes it can have an extremely damaging effect on our business. I can only assume that your motivation for...
