In a country with as much history as “merry olde England,” Bournemouth remains one of the youngest cities in the British Isles and one of the few traceable back to a single founder. Established in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell as a summer retreat, word-of-mouth praise for the coastal area attracted enough people to achieve town status 60 years later.
It’s easy to see why—with seven miles of golden sandy beaches, temperate climate, unique animal and plant species, prehistoric fossils galore, and clean water easily accessible to hotel guests in Bournemouth. Certainly, it helps account for the town’s status as the “Happiest Place in Britain” and literary praise from writers such as Oscar Wilde, Mary Shelly, Robert Louis Stevenson, Roald Dahl and J.R.R Tolkien.
Today, Bournemouth hotels accommodate thousands of holiday makers, who come for the water sports, top entertainment venues, annual air festival, surfing, Oceanarium and especially the stunning Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, set in a dazzling art nouveau/Japanese-inspired former mansion in the town’s East Cliff.
For travelers keen on staying in our exclusive hotel, Bournemouth offers a wide range centrally located accommodation with sea views and easy access to the city’s ultra-vibrant nightlife. No doubt you’ll leave as happy as the residents.
