New Westcliff Hotel
Ranked #50 of 66 Hotels in Bournemouth
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Have just stayed here for 2 nights over the Jubilee weekend and have no complaints. It's clean, the staff are really pleasant, and it's within a short walk of the town centre and the seafront so it was all we wanted for a short break. We stayed on a b&b basis, so can only comment on the food quality at breakfast, which was fine, cereals, tea, toast, English breakfast etc. I don't eat fried stuff so I only had porridge and toast although everyone else seemed happy with their full English ! The only thing I didn't like was that I do like my toast to be 'toasted' and crisp. I suspect the bread only had a quick peep at the toaster, and you had to look hard to find any toasted bits!
We did go into the town evenings as the hotel bar wasn't very lively and like most sea-side hotels tends to attract older clientele, but the bar seemed ok if you wanted a peaceful drink before retiring for the night.
Our bedroom was compact, but had everything we needed including a hairdryer and iron/board so was ideal for a couple of nights. We could hear a bit of noise from a party in the function room but it didn't go on too late so didn't disturb our sleep at all.
Overall it was good value for money and I would have no hesitation in staying here again and the lovely man in reception will be happy to know that Douglas the bear is in total agreement !

The hotel is in a brilliant location and with a large car park, it is excellent for staying over when you want to visit Bournemouth. You have town centre one side and the beach on the other! Staff were very friendly and helpful. We got there pretty early and left our car at the car park, told the staff and visit the toilets to freshen up. The guest toilets were very clean and modern.

We got into our room, it was fairly small for a double, with an ensuite shower, sink and toilet. We noticed straight away that the carpets had bits all over and a bit sticky. The ensuite was small, the shower was a decent size but the let down was that the shower holder was broken and the shower pipe was just lying in the shower. There was a toothpick in the toothbrush holder. Other than this, the ensuite was clean but do bring your own toiletries, as all you get is a block of soap. The bed was very soft and too sqeaky and when I lifted up the bedcover, there were short hairs on the pillow staring at me.

We didnt stay the night at the end because the room next door was party goers and were having a party in the room The walls were so thin that we heard everything next door. Also our window was facing the back garden and people were smoking and chatting, so it was not as quiet as we thought. After 2 hours, we decided to pack and leave. The manager was polite but there was awkward silence from him as I hadnt paid yet, so we decided to just pay the amount due.

I think this hotel needs improvements especially in housekeeping. If you require a quiet stay, do ask for a quieter room not overlooking the garden, as they have lots of evening entertainment going on and it might not finish till late in the evening.

Room Tip: Tell them if you require a quieter room. Otherwise be prepared for entertainment nights in the hotel...

The hotel continues to give very good value. This is the 7th time we have visited the hotel and we have always been made welcome. The rooms are spotless, facilities good and the staff very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food excellent. Will have no hesitation in booking again in the future.

We've just come back from a weekend break at the New Westcliff Hotel and are very glad to have found it. Will definitely go back. It's warm and friendly, the double room, although a bit small, was perfectly adequate, with an en suite shower, the food was excellent with plenty of choice and served in a pleasant dining room by attentive staff. The public rooms were comfortable and nicely furnished and everywhere was clean and fresh. We made good use of the heated swimming pool and jacuzzi and enjoyed watching two films at the in-house cinema - excellent facilities. The hotel itself is conveniently situated within easy and pleasant walking distance of Bournemouth, the shops and the beaches. If you don't want to use the car, there are bus stops close by too. The rates are reasonable and we consider it good value for money. Would recommend.

Room Tip: next time we would pay a bit extra for a 'superior room' which would probably be a little la...

Recently stayed at The New Westcliff for a 5 night break with my husband and couldn’t fault one thing! The hotel was immaculately clean and all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, the food was excellent and we really enjoyed the entertainment of an evening. We have stayed in other hotels within Bournemouth but this one is by far the best!! Will defiantly be returning in the summer! A great stay!

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. We stayed for a 4 day midweek break.
We found the room compact "small".The hotel is located in an ideal position for town...etc.
The food was excellent... The hotel has a small cinema, swimming pool and jucuzzi.
An added bonus good entertainment for 3 of 4 evenings.
Would use this hotel again.
