Best Luxury Hotels in Bournemouth

Best areas in Bournemouth for luxury hotels

The majority of luxury hotels in Bournemouth are situated around the seaside town centre, with the best of the bunch giving their guests sparkling views of the English Channel. The heart of the resort, Bournemouth's town centre, is known for its relaxed cafe culture, idyllic gardens, top-notch restaurants and fabulous shopping – particularly along Westover Road, 'Bournemouth's Bond Street' with its luxury label boutiques and glittering jewellery shops. Gilding the town for 7 miles is Bournemouth's star attraction: Bournemouth Beach. With a reputation as one of Europe's best beaches, it's famous for its clean golden sand, warm waters and traditional pier.

Top luxury hotels in Bournemouth

There's certainly no shortage of luxury hotels in Bournemouth – take the 4-star Green House. A short jaunt from the beach, it offers a swanky on-site restaurant and bar, with chic modern rooms boasting plush beds and glamorous roll top bathtubs. The 4-star Royal Bath Hotel & Spa offers a more traditional dose of luxury. Alongside creature comfort-filled rooms, it features a chandeliered restaurant, an indoor pool and a fancy full-service spa, where you can enjoy hours of pampering. If a boutique hotel is more your thing, find your way to the 4-star Amarillo hotel. It features only 7 beautifully appointed rooms, giving it a quiet, intimate vibe.

Where to find the best fine dining in Bournemouth

As with most restaurants in Bournemouth, the town's luxury dining spots are scattered throughout the town centre. There's something for every discerning palate here, from contemporary restaurants serving up creative British cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients, to more traditionally styled eateries, offering everything from Italian cuisine to Spanish tapas. Being on the coast, it won't be any surprise that seafood is a fixture on many menus. You'll find plenty of upscale seafood restaurants if you're a fan. After dinner, be sure to kick back in one of the town's many swanky wine and cocktail bars.

The most unique things to do in Bournemouth

There are plenty of indulgent things to enjoy in Bournemouth besides just basking on the beach. If dinner and a show sounds like your kind of evening, then the Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre and the restaurants in its vicinity provide just the right ingredients. Housed with an elegant Art Deco building dating back to the 1920s, the venue hosts everything from opera and ballet, to stand-up comedy acts and touring West End productions. If you're looking to do something altogether more memorable, there's nothing quite like a hot air balloon ride. A handful of operators in the Bournemouth and Dorset areas offer this, with some packages providing champagne too. If you haven't got a head for heights, but do have a taste for champagne, you can always buy a bottle and charter a yacht instead. From the waves you can admire Bournemouth's golden coast, views of the Purbecks and Isle of Wight, and further west, the multimillion-pound mansions of nearby Sandbanks.

Best ways to get around Bournemouth

Bournemouth's town centre is easy enough to navigate on foot and you'll usually find that most attractions are within easy walking distance of one another. If you want to get around quickly, with minimal effort, the town has no shortage of taxis to whisk you around. You'll find taxi ranks throughout Bournemouth, including The Square, The Triangle, Landsdowne, Pier Approach and The Square – all situated within the town centre.
