About the hotel
The Urban Beach is a small boutique hotel and bistro located just a few minutes walk from the beach and from sister venue, The Urban Reef restaurant. Come and stay at a hotel with real soul, an amazing atmosphere and a great team of staff, from Mark Cribb the owner and our manager, Chris Warwick, all the way down. Our Bistro offers some great dishes with meat and fish that is locally sourced and freshly cooked by our excellent head chef Francis.
Our delicious cocktails use local Dorset blueberries and ginger, or locally made horseradish vodka for an amazing Bloody Mary. These ingredients are freshly squeezed and prepared and are sure to help you sleep. Having invested over £1 million on this small Victorian hotel our rooms are stunning with huge comfy beds, wake-me-up power showers, Egyptian cotton linen, Arran Aromatic toiletries, large plasma tvs, DVD players, a DVD library and 8mb web connections. Don't just take our word for it though, take a look at our website for pictures of all the rooms, read the reviews and take advantage of our late rooms rates before summer arrives and we're full price again!

Urban Beach Hotel
Lovely little hotel very decieving from the outside.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the room was lovely, the bed was so comfortable. They really go above and beyond providing everything you may need for your visit.
Urban Beach Hotel
The receptionist was lovely, helpful and showed me to my room.
The bar / resturant has a lovely cafe/bar/bistro feel to it with character, unlike so many dull hotels i stay in. the room was spotless and tastefully decorated, the receptionist showed me a couple of rooms, both with different decor so the rooms are not identikit. The breakfast, although opens late at 8am, rather then 7am (i am sure if i had checked before it wouldnt have been an issue) did a very good smoked salmon and egg.
