So, the hotel in inself was ok, the staff are friendly. Beware there is no disabled toilet!! Someone at the function I was attending needed to use a disabled toilet - but there was none - she was advised to go to the hotel next door. This is totally unacceptable. So if you plan to stay or visit this hotel please bear this in mind. Also note when you go upstairs there is no indication on which direction you need to head to find your room. A sign at the top of the stairs giving room No.s left & right would have been most helpful. The room we had was at the front facing the sea was ok, although a little shabby in the bathroom in terms of finishing off, and in the evening there was a sewage smell coming from here. The room was clean and bright. I found the prices at this hotel a little on the steep side.

Room Very Clean & bright. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Breakfast self service buffet was superb, lots of choice. Car parking was free of charge. Bar & outdoor balcony had great views of the sea. Definitely would return.

Stayed here for night out in town. Great location near city centre although needed to get a taxi as weather bad. Room was clean and tidy, not flash but comfortable and had a great view. Staff good, helpful and cheerful. Breakfast is buffet style British or continental served in room overlooking pool. Good food but coffee not great.

Wonderful location, feeling a ton of tours that leave right from the hostel! The staff is friendly, helpful, Stayed here for 3 nights, the staff were so friendly from the moment I walked in until I left. The room was fresh & clean with good bed, nice bathroom, and tea/coffee making facilities with biscuit. :) <3

Visited just out of season on a very wet & windy day. Staff were helpful, attentive & happy in their work. There is a lift to all floors, very small area. Bedrooms roomy & comfortable. Lots of stairs should you feel inclined as we did. Food excellent, dining-room overlooks a very attractive Swimming Pool area with wall murals depicting beach scenes, very colourful. Nice Bar where Italian Food is served. A very happy & relaxed atmosphere everywhere. Lovely walks from Hotel to Bournemouth Pier one way along the cliff top or down the zig-zag path along the beach or the other way to Boscombe Pier.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding here and the venue and staff were amazing. I would 100% recommend this venue.Nothing was ever a problem and helped make our day perfect.Lauren was a wonderful wedding planner and Alessandro the restaurant manager was the perfect gent running around all day and again nothing was a problem for them both.The hotel made our room up so nice as you can see in the picture which we though was a really lovely touch and the room it's self was really clean and very comfortable.The wedding breakfast was gorgeous and very generous portions all the guest commented just how good the food was.Breakfast in the morning was lovely also and the variety was excellent. Thank you ocean beach hotel for a perfect weekend.

We booked our wedding at the Ocean Beach Hotel. We had a truly amazing day thanks to Lauren, Alessandro and his amazing team. They made our day so special. They were attentive, professional and friendly all rolled into one. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was set out and decorated perfectly. They took us step by step through the whole day and made it so relaxing and worry free. I would recommend this hotel as a wedding venue to everybody. A beautiful venue with amazing staff.

Normally I don't use TripAdvisor website but after the amazing days in Ocean Beach Hotel I decided to write. All staff are really polite, professional and helpful but Igor and Unice make all the difference in this hotel. My family was in love with this 2 members of staff. Since we arrive unice was amazing with us, I thought she was just be professional with my daughter but after 10 minutes I realised she is a lovely person and she play with all kids because she like kids, is not her job but all the 4 days that we stayed she found time to play with my baby, and all the other kids staying in ocean beach. My daughter love her so much that ask her to be her auntie. Me and my husband was feeling bless to find a person with so good heart. Igor the bar manager was same a big guy with a big heart. Playing with kids give them pen and paper to paint. This guy's are managers they don't need to act like that but....they found time for me, my family and all the others guest. When families travel and stay in hotels they are not expecting this treatment. I want to say thank you to ocean beach hotel to unice and Igor definitely you two do all the difference. Italian restaurant 5 stars. We definitely recommend and wants return :)

My husband I & a group of friends went to the Ocean Beach on Sunday 3 September. We had a table for 12 reserved for us to watch the air show in comfort and to also have a buffet lunch. We were also celebrating my husbands birthday. Unfortunately due to the bad weather the planes were unable to fly. However we still all enjoyed the afternoon. The buffet was amazing. There was something for everyone including fish, seafood, crab, lobster, pies, quiche, roasted meats, rice salad, pasta salad, sausage rolls and more. Followed by strawberries and cream. The staff could not be faulted and they were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Other hotels also do buffet lunches for the air show but because of the great time we had we will be looking to go back to the Ocean Beach again.

Booked this nice hotel through great little breaks and was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was good. We had a recently refurbished room and it was a good size with a very comfortable bed. There was complimentary shower wash etc and also tea & coffee. The food was good and the breakfast was excellent. We went for swim in the hotel next door The Suncliff which was also a bonus. The hotel was quite a walk from the town & pier area although there was a bus outside which went to the town hourly. Enjoyed our stay here.
