Exceptional 10,0
Lovely stay!
Very welcoming staff and felt very homely as well as a great atmosphere downstairs in the restaurant area in which you could sit inside as well as outside, although we didn’t use the restaurant it was nice to have the option. A 10 min walk from the beach / boscombe pier. Took my boyfriend for his 21st and staff were very upbeat and had friendly touches such as being greeted with glass of champagne due to the occasion. Bedroom was beautiful, as well as the bathroom, very clean, bed comfy, also had a fan for the hot weather. Only good things to say!

The worst hotel in the world. Reception very bad
The worst hotel in the world. Reception very, very bad. There is no air conditioning. There is only a fan close to the window. The air draws directly from the outside to insect insects and bad odors from the hotel's waste bins under the window

Fantastic! Very relaxed place! The double room is very big with good amenities, very silent light and ventilated. Big bathroom with shower and bathtub. The staff is awesome, always kind, positive and ready to help. Good located, close to beach and supermarkets in a relaxed neighborhood. They have a incredibly nice restaurant/pub/lounge downstairs.

A cool spot
This was just cool: cool hotel, cool staff, cool clientele - something between a popular pub and a nicely renovated old pub. I didn't expect it to be so good, and ventured not far - it was far too much fun hanging about. Close to the beach if you need that, but the cocktails are closer to the bar!
Ross, au3 night trip
Exceptional 10,0
Highly recommended
I booked to stay near my flat for a tenant check-out. But I also have lots of friends in the area as Bournemouth was my home for 20 years until recently. Urban Beach was somewhere I would have recommended to friends when they came to stay but I'd never stayed myself. The staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. The food is great and their cocktail list is excellent - try the Bramble! I stayed in the single room - it was small but perfectly formed. It had everything I needed and there was a coffee grinder in the hallway to help yourself to. Breakfast was not included in my booking but they served from 7.30 until 11.30 (I think that was right?) and it's a favourite brunch spot for locals.

Great stay
Excellent stay. Checkin was easy and then shown to my room which was clean with all the amenities you need. Only had breakfast on the one day which again was great.Ate elsewhere in the evening as came to see family but food looked really good and was very popular.

Very good 8,0
Really nice atmosphere and lovely staff
One night business trip. Very interesting and modern hotel with nice staff and fabulous food. Single room is very compact but fine for one night with nice additional "extras". My only comment is that the bed & pillows were extremely hard & uncomfortable, otherwise good value for money
Mrs Rebecca J, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8,0
Lovely hotel. Well presented. Rooms was clean and tidy. Only negative was that the room (room 10)looked a lot bigger in the picture otherwise I wouldn't of booked that particular room. Also it was in the attic with quite low ceiling so me and my husband being 6ft it was not ideal
