Great location but poor value for families

The hotel is ideally situated for exploring the beach and walking into the town centre.

Our family room consisted of a huge king size bed and 2 small camp beds. The menu is not geared for children, we ate dinner in the pub down the road. The swimming pool is small but clean. We (1 adult, 2 children) were charged £210 for 2 nights and an additional £19 per day for breakfast (which was nice). Again poor value so we skipped it on the final morning and went to the Harvester on the beach. Overall, I would advise that this was poor value.

Best location in bournemouth - beach and town !

I have stayed at durley dean once before Beautiful building , lovely refurbished reception Bar area is amazing for pre dinner drinks , in expensive yet well stocked and lovely decor Staff on reception attentive , polite and well dressed Breakfast buffet very fresh , lots of choice and good value would recommend to all Our room was in the cellar , bit strange but very spacious and on first inspection good New carpet , huge bed , big tv and ensuite bathroom But our nights stay was let down by the general maintenance of the room , peice of wall paper peeling off as you walk in, tiles in ensuite coming away from wall and needing filler / attention Quality of tiling very poor / amateur , toilet leaking water from cistern / waste pipe Corner bath with shower curtain (clean looking ) but who wants a shower curtain touching you body in a hotel.

Bedroom was huge but let down by ridiculously soft mattress trying to be disguised by using a duvet thickness mattress topper that made the bed feel like you were on a boat or water bed

Lovely hotel, amazing location close to town or end of road walk down to the beach

I love the facade of building , reception , bar and breakfast but nights stay let down by some minor maintenance issues easily rectified and buy a new mattress please . I will definitely stay again but would ask for room with shower cubicle and harder mattress
