Cons: Although the breakfast was nice, 8:30 was a little too late for us, as a family with a young child we are early risers. Could have had a little more cereal choice too. Although close to beach and town the street itself was quite busy and noisy, so in summer with the windows open not ideal(however in other rooms this may not have a been an issue)

Raised with owner but no empathy Poor quality towels small white ones which had seen better days Travel hairdryer, ok if you don’t have long/thick hair, raised with owner to see if he had a larger one but he didn’t but acknowledged the lack of power in the one provided. Had to buy one instead. No bottled water un room No bath in bath room despite their being enough room Felt man, possibly owner, lacked customer focus unlike the ladies who served breakfast.

Pros: Overall a pleasant stay for what we needed the hotel for. Wife had previously stayed there and has also booked for some future dates too. (Maybe she has a secret boyfriend!?) Anyway, very helpful staff, great location and easy to find and safe parking off road. Breakfast was fine in morning although limited window of 1 hour I think. Also, make sure you order the previous night if you want a cooked breakfast. I wasn't aware but it didn't matter as what was offered was more than enough and they will do eggs to order anyway. Plus continental is cheaper by a few quid. We did have a fan in the room which helped keep it cool during a few v hot days and nights. I would stay again which I think is the biggest deciding factor in reviews.

Pros: We loved everything about this place! Our host Rowan was great (and has cool hair), the hotel is very homey and authentic. Lots of personal style without being overbearing. Room was big and clean. We had the shared bathroom which I'm not usually a fan of, but the bathroom was very spacious and clean and the towels were enormous and comfy. Shared spaces (garden, lounge, TV room, breakfast area) were lovely and welcoming. The two cats are the sweetest and breakfast was very nice. Couldn't have been happier, would recommend and come back for sure! It's obviously an old building so if modern and brand new is your thing, this isn't your place, but we really enjoyed the historical features of the place. If you want authentic, welcoming, clean and inviting, you can't go wrong with staying at the strand hotel.

7.5 Good
Pros: Very close to the beach front and surrounding shops, perfectly located... stayed for 2 nights and room was cleaned whilst out. Didn’t see much staff but was easy to come and go as was given own key. Nothing special but good for a budget and had no problems with the stay... bed was comfy and shared facilities were always accessible and had other toilets etc should one be busy.
Cons: Was what was expected so had no problems, didn’t opt in for the breakfast so can’t comment on food but hotel did the job for what was required
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location was great, just a few minutes walking from the beach and from the main street where all the shops are. It is in a very quiet zone and the breakfast was really good.
Cons: Pillows were too thin

Cons: Nothing
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We only stayed 1 night, and left at 04.30 the next morning. After we had registered and gone to our room, the Manager bought us biscuits, water, and a few sweets.
Cons: Nothing, the hotel was perfect for what we wanted.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Really great place, with attentive staff, lovely gazebo and garden to chill out in, clean, well apportioned bedrooms with everything you could ask for, and the most amazing cooked breakfast. I have had some unfortunate experiences recently with other hotels, which led me to bring with me, my own fan ( it was the hottest July day in history !!! ) and a 5 x gang extension plug, based on previous experience. Neither were necessary as this hotel provides everything you could possibly need.
Cons: Its not the hotels fault, but the area it is in, is not suited for families in the evenings. I ventured into the High Street of Boscombe, just around the corner, on a few nights, and was surprised at how many drunks and beggars were around. The latter hang around the ATM's and hassle you for cash as you are making a withdrawal. I'm a fit, 6ft 1, ex Policeman, so I was not phased by this, but I can imagine the number of drunken males in the street and beggars, could concern a family, or single, female, visitors.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and meet our needs.
Cons: Only issue we had was that the shower in the bathroom sometimes had low pressure
9.3 Excellent
Pros: A nice touch was the basket filled with assortment of towels and slippers. The quite and peaceful room overlooked the garden. The cooked breakfast was tasty and portions very generous.
Cons: I would have preferred ensuite, but as our room was next to the shared bathroom, this made it more convenient to get to.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Garden facilities and self serve breakfast. Microwave for use in evening
Cons: Nothing really-although the availability of an evening meal would have been nice ( even if just a very limited menu chosen in advance , say at breakfast?)

8.3 Excellent
Pros: - 10 mins walk to Boscombe Beach - hotel very clean - single room small but very cosy and light - large window - tasty and plentiful breakfast - friendly staff - lovely garden - quiet area - sink in the room - toilet outside which was a bit inconvenient but it was clearly stated in the description - plus it was just outside my room and it was always available when I needed to use it

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant and helpful staff and management who were especially eager to ensure my dietary needs were catered for. I booked a Deluxe Single and stayed in room 7 which is a small double, so not sure if I was upgraded, but the room was lovely and quiet on the side of the property. Although compact, it felt more spacious because of the high ceilings. Bed & pillows were very comfy, and I was impressed to see an iron and ironing board in the room. The breakfast was excellent, with gluten-free options. There is a good small supermarket a few minutes walk away, and the hotel is just a 15 min walk into the centre of Bournemouth. It's likely I shall visit the town again and I'd have no hesitation going back to the Balincourt Hotel.
Cons: My only complaint was that the WiFi was hopeless and I couldn't get a signal for more than a few minutes before it dropped out again. Gave up in the end.

6.8 Good
Pros: The location was perfect, 5 min from the beach! The staff were very helpful and very friendly. The dinner at the restaurant was good! The vue from the room was nice and it’s a quiet hotel.
Cons: Breakfast is very poor for a 4* hotel... a little buffet with warm juices, fruit salad without taste, and you have to choose a hot plate but never change. And if you like a coffee other than just filter coffee they charge for that. Not good value for a 4*, you shouldn’t take the breakfast here. Is like more an hostel breakfast... The room was big but very old, again for a 4* hotel is look very poor. Even the TV have a very little amount of channel... the room is cold ambiance... No facilities at all, no pool, no gym nothing... for a 4* is not good regard of the rest is poor... and I was surprising at the end when I have to pay for my newspaper! When I arrive they didn’t mention it was charged on the room and they offer me...again not good for a 4* hotel. Overall, the staff is very nice but the hotel need a refresh and don’t deserve 4* at all.
