those looking for a fun laid-back atmosphere with very friendly staff
Relaxed, happy, laid-back and well loved, the Urban Beach Hotel is a cosy and cool boutique hotel that stands out above Bournemouth's numerous boutique hotels catering for those drawn to the sandy beaches, classy bars and gourmet restaurants of this seaside town. The bistro, populated by faithful regulars & guests alike serves up a great menu and there is a well-equipped health club for guests to use nearby for a quick work out, a swim or a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi. The long stretch of sandy beach and Boscombe Pier is just down the hill and popular sister restaurant Urban Reef is 5 minutes walk and right on the beach with an outside seating area overlooking the sea. The Urban Beach Hotel is Lulu's choice of boutique hotel when staying in the centre of Bournemouth.
Bournemouth is renowned for its 7 miles of soft golden sand. Try some of the water sports on offer before heading to the well-equipped local health club - where the Urban Beach Hotel have arranged complimentary use for all guests - for a relaxing sauna or cool off in the 25 metre swimming pool. There is also a steam room and Jacuzzi, and the gym has a selection of cardiovascular & resistance equipment. For a bit of pampering, a local masseuse offers in-room treatments back at the hotel.
Bournemouth's nightlife is fun & fancy free with a great selection of bars to choose from to start off the night and the shopping is great too. A little further afield is the world heritage Jurassic Coastline of the Purbecks, the New Forest and the ancient site of Stonehenge.
The bistro serves up a hearty menu from the 'Urban club sandwich' to a tasty Dorset crab or lamb tagine. All ingredients are locally sourced, and they have gone to great lengths to really source the finest most ethical local produce. For a pre-meal drink, the Urban Beach Bar has a range of gorgeous cocktails from Tanqueray & vermouth based treats to the 'Bitten Apple' with the taste of fresh baked strudel. Children are welcome!
