Metres from the clifftop on Bournemouth’s leafy East Cliff our classic seaside hotel takes full advantage of its breathtaking location. Not only are there views from The Needles to Old Harry Rocks, but Bournemouth’s seven miles of golden beaches are close at hand. We’re not called the Ocean View for nothing!

Our light, spacious lounges & public areas were recently refurbished combining the timeless character of the building’s original Edwardian architecture with comfortable contemporary design.

The hotel has 51 en-suite rooms, including a bridal suite and family rooms, many enjoying stunning 180 degree views from The Needles to Old Harry Rocks. Relax in our outdoor swimming pool or sun bathe elegant south facing gardens.

All guests at the Ocean View Hotel also have access to the luxurious Bar Vista & The Garden Restaurant at The Cottonwood Boutique, our adjoining hotel.
