Just returned from long weekend in Bournemouth, staying at Menzies East Cliff Court. We cannot praise this hotel highly enough! The hotel was spotlessly clean, we were half-board and every meal was absolutely delicious with plenty of choice. The “icing on the cake” was the hotel staff! Every member of staff we encountered, in the restaurant, the bar, the reception and the rooms, had the perfect combination of being friendly, obliging and yet utterly professional. We will definitely be returning to the East Cliff Court, and would recommend it to anyone.

Highly recommended. Lovely room with sea view. Very comfortable bed and spacious room with lots of storage. In a good location a short walk into the town. Good bar area with sea views and wonderful sun set. Receptionist very efficient on check in. Bournemouth has lots to offer with a large pier, miles of golden sands, lovely parks and lots of bars and restaurants. The sister hotel next door also has a pool but we didn’t use.

“Very pleasant and attentive staff”
Very friendly and helpful staff who are very attentive and willing to help! Nothing seemed to much to ask and staff are very happy to help! Hotel is very clean, and the jacuzzi and sauna at the Carlton is right next door. Town is just 10 mins away, with the beach/pier right on your doorstep. Really can’t speak highly enough about the service we received from the East Cliff.

Stayed at the East Cliff for one night on Oct 19th with two friends. Both couples had lovely, clean spacious rooms with very comfortable beds, very surprised on arrival to find that we both had sea view rooms as the paperwork from Booking.com stated inland facing. Hotel very comfortable, staff all very nice, would return if ever staying in Bournemouth again and take advantage of the leisure facilities at the sister hotel next door.

“Friendly and professional”
Have just returned from a two night stay at the East Cliff Hotel. I cannot speak highly enough of this Hotel. The staff from check in to check out we’re fantastic especially Natasha who went the extra mile to make our stay so enjoyable. Great room with balcony, great food in fact the only downside was the weather, but you can’t have everything.

“Lovely Hotel, Great Views, Great Service”
Stayed one night mid-week as I was travelling for work. I arrived at around 3.30pm checked into my room on the 4th floor which was nice spacious, clean and had a very comfortable bed and large bathroom.
The staff on reception were very friendly and directed me as to how to get to the town centre so I could do a spot of shopping.
I made use of the gym and swimming facilities at the hotel opposite which were very good, particularly the sauna. There is also an outdoor pool which looked well maintained and I can imagine it is lovely in the summer months.
Room service which I ordered for dinner was good and arrived in good time. Breakfast was also nice, although the sausages were a bit dissapointing and the bacon was overly oily. Good selection of continental and cooked items overall.
Would definitely stay here again, for work and pleasure! Views of the sea and cliffs are amazing.

“Friendly and helpful staff”
Lovely hotel with a great location only a short walk to town and in front of the beach. The hotel is modern and the view to the sea are great, but the best part in my opinion is the helpful and friendly staff they have, always happy to assist you, very good attitude and efficiency. I recommend it so much.

“Lovely hotel and great location”
We stayed here for one night last weekend. The staff were very welcoming and the room was very clean (a few things wrong i.e. the bathroom handle was hanging off but we’d booked a cheap deal so assume you get the standard of room you pay for!). The bar is pleasant and the view from the balcony over the pool makes all the difference.

“Fantastic Hotel, worthy of all 4*”
We were welcomed in, the hotel itself is very clean and well presented. The lounge bar staff were great and very helpful. We had a superior room with balcony over-looking the sea and it was perfect. Great size and great decor. The restaurant food was beautiful and the staff couldn’t do enough to help, they were extremely attentive and gave you the service you would expect. Breakfast was also perfect. You are close to the beach and the pier is a 5 minute walk. I so wished we could have stayed longer and will most definitely be going back there again. If you are thinking of staying here I really would recommend it, I don’t think you would be disappointed.

We just spent a lovely three nights at the East Cliff. We booked a family room and were shown to one of their suites on arrival. Superb room, plenty of room and very nice décor. The staff were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We shall definitely be booking again when next in Bournemouth.

“Excellent venue for family special occasions”
I had an overnight stay recently and was very impressed by the standard of the hotel in terms of staff efficiency, cleanliness and the food. The views are amazing and the whole experience was perfect. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and will be a regular stop over on my trips to Bournemouth. I will be recommending this hotel to my family and friends as an excellent venue for family special occasions.

“Excellent venue for a wedding reception”
We chose East cliff for our wedding reception and could not fault a single thing! All staff were amazingly organised and extremely efficient. The food was simply gorgeous. Stunning views across the sea. The whole hotel felt clean, comfortable and relaxed. Staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough to help. Thank you so much! We will be back!

“Lovely weekend in a fab hotel”
Just home from a weekend in Bournemouth for my daughter’s Hen. Lovely hotel with everything you would want for such a special occasion. Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Great balcony for drinks overlooking the sea. Tasty breakfasts. Staff who couldn’t do enough for you. It was perfect.

“Best British hotel we’ve stayed in.”
The staff could not have been more helpful, all had a smile and a chat. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room was always made up upon our return. Our bedroom was large and airy with sea view and balcony. A king sized bed, tea and coffee making facilities and also an iron and ironing board. Views were spectacular in all directions.
The restaurant was run very well with a good choice of dishes. We did not experience the breakfast buffet as we had a cooked breakfast in the room but other guests were very happy with it.
We have already made a booking for a break in November.

“Ideal for families with young children”
The hotel location is great and the rooms were clean, spacious and tidy. Dinner in particular deserves a mention. We were allocated a function room over-looking the sea which was ideal as there was plenty of room for the children to move around. The staff were patient, friendly and understanding and the service was prompt and food excellent. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and are already planning a return trip the following year!

Just had the pleasure of staying in the Menzies East Cliff. The sea view room was fantastic offering great views over the coastline. Really great to wake up and have a coffee on the balcony. All the staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly. Also the breakfast was one of the best I have had in a hotel. The selection, choice and quality was second to none. The location is also great, very close to town and to the beach. What more can you ask for?
Staines251 – June 2013, Trip Advisor
We stayed at the above hotel form the 14th May for 2 nights. Our room was newly refurbished, very clean and overlooking the sea. The staff and the service of this hotel are excellent. The breakfast and dinner which we had there were brilliant. We are usually very critical when we stay in hotels but with this hotel, we cannot fault anything.

“Lovely staff, amazing breakfast”
Stayed here recently and really impressed with the general feel of the hotel as soon as you walk in. The staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. We had a fab sea view and on a day when it poured, shone, poured then shone the sunset was not to be missed! Great location, we had a lovely walk along the seafront and into town another day. Breakfast was plentiful, good quality and delicious – again, the staff were exemplary. Highly recommend!

“Fab hotel in fab location”
I stayed here for 4 nights on business. Having stayed in several hotels in Bournemouth this was certainly the best. I was lucky enough to get a side sea view room. The rooms are modern, clean and bright and very homely. The breakfast was probably the best I have had, such a fabulous choice. I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else in Bournemouth.

“Service with a smile”
My wife, friends and I have just spent a weekend break at the East Cliff Court Hotel. To say that it was good does it an injustice – it was brilliant!!! The whole hotel was spotless, the food was excellent, the location was superb and the staff just could not do enough for you. We all came away, on our long journey home, wishing that we had extended our break by a few days as the staff had made the weekend one of the most pleasant we have experienced. I would have no qualms in recommending (Highly) the hotel to anyone who wants to visit Bournemouth.

Booked a BIG O Party for 33 here, lunch and afternoon tea. Compared 4 similar hotels, most impressed with Event Manager Amy’s approach. The party was really well organised, the head waiter actually suggested he switch off the background music before speeches rather than having to be told. Food first class. Pool for bored kids plus the beach.

“Comfortable rooms, excellent Service and top notch breakfast”
I have now used East Cliff Court as a business stop over on a number of occasions. The hotel is ideally situated in that it is close to the town centre but without the noise of being set amongst the hustle and bustle. I often arrive late and the staff are attentive and make sure all my needs are met. On at least one occasion they have accomodated special requests for early breakfast etc – nothing is too much trouble. My only choice when staying in Bournemouth!!

“catch up with a friend”
A week ago I went to England to catch up with my fieinds. In Bournemouth, I stayed at Menzies Hotel with one of my best girlfriends. We had a beautiful newly refurbished suite to ourselves! In the evening we decided to stay and have dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was a very good choice as the food was delicious. The staff were very nice and attentive. I always stay at the hotel when I visit Bournemouth and each time it’s been a great experience. I especially recommend it in summer as it’s very close to the stunning Bournemouth beach.

“Even in January…..”
Even in snowy January this hotel right on the cliffs at Bournemouth was lovely, with a buzzing atmosphere. The room was large and immaculately clean, with clean towels supplied every day. The breakfast was fabulous and the meals in the lounge/bar absolutely lovely. Added to all that the staff were really helpful and nice, nothing was too much trouble. Can’t wait to visit again in the Summer!
Pam R – January 2013, Trip Advisor
Our New Year stay at the East Cliff was superb. We were a party of 8 (4 couples) and arrived on the 30th for a 3 night package. Our 4 rooms were all sea facing, spacious and cleaned to a high standard. We left on the 2nd of Jan promising to return next year, we spend every New Year away together and rarely return to the same venue. We were particularly impressed by the staff, they were polite caring and always available to assist us. The care and attention to detail throughout our stay was highly praised by all the members of our party. The food and entertainment was also good.

“A Must For Your Christmas Party”
I had the daunting task of organising our works Christmas party this year for 85 people including a lot of remote workers. My dealings with the conference staff from initial enquiry, various queries throughout to implementation were excellent. Everyone I encountered were friendly, helpful and knowledgable and made the whole process as easy as possible. The general manager was even on hand during the setting up of the room to make sure everything was ok. The night ran like clockwork and everyone commented on what a great night they had and how friendly the staff were. The bedrooms provided were great and I would highly recommend a sea view balcony room.
Shirelyann P – December 2012, Trip Advisor
Great location (close to town and beach) with stunning views.
It was clear that the room we were given had been recently refurbished to a high standard, making the room extremely comfortable, in particular the huge bed.
The staff at Menzies were extremely friendly and did everything possible to ensure that we enjoyed are stay – will definitely be going back!

“Golden wedding function room with buffet”
We hired a function room for our Golden Wedding party. The beautiful room was laid out just as we wanted and was enjoyed by all. We also had the service of a very sweet waitress and other staff. Our guests were delighted.(as were we,) with the venue with many promising to hold their next celebration at your hotel. Many thanks for making our celebration so successful

“Great place to stay in Bournemouth”
Cannot fault this hotel. It was a great place to stay and simply loved it to bits actually. The room was modern, clean and tidy, a great location for just about everything Bournemouth has to offer.
Very friendly staff and a great breakfast which kind of reminded me of being abroad, so they certainly got that bit right. Help yourself to what you like best, so how good is that.
Highly recommend this place. If the price is right I will certainly return and do it all again. Go for it, you will not be disappointed. Well done to all the staff it’s a credit to all of you so take a pat on the back. Best regards Paul & Maria from West Sussex.
