The Durley Dean Hotel, Bournemouth
Not the best but not the worst
Hotel exterior - Has the potential to look really nice, however needs a bit of care. Maybe it looks better in the summer. Room - We opted for the cheaper double room as we were only stopping for one night. The room had a bad damp patch in one corner and was relatively cramped. The bathroom however had been renovated and was in good condition. Overall the room was clean and comfortable. Pool - The hotel is advertised as having a pool, however it is just a leisure centre nextdoor which is extremely busy. In a hotel which advertises a pool you would expect a quiet pool/ spa area. However all you get is a standard leisure centre, don’t bother using the pool! Breakfast- Just don’t bother, the pancakes with raspberries has mold on them! And the full English was of the lowest standard. The whole lot was left untouched and we aren’t even fussy. We didn’t complain as were were in a rush and we had already been waiting a while. The staff however were nice and attentive when asking for a tea/coffee etc. Bar area - Nice and modern bar area, I would recommend having a drink here in the evening.

Nice stay.
Second stay at Durley Dean with Grandchildren. Warm, comfy room. Variety of options for breakfast. Towels provided for swimming pool at no charge. Walking distance to local amenities including beach. Downside £10 per 24 hours for parking and no guarantee of a space. Pool quite small. No children's menu/portions in dining room of an evening.
