Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton

An amazing location

When it comes to epic locations and dramatic seafront views, nothing gets much better than the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton (formerly part of Menzies Hotels).  We’re right in the heart of town, so when you can tear your eyes away from the beautiful view or tear yourself away from the stretch of golden beach, then we’re also walking distance to the town centre, to popular attractions such as Bournemouth Oceanarium and Bournemouth International Centre – a hotspot for major conferences and exhibitions. 

A hotel that has it all

  • Free WiFi throughout.
  • 10 minute walk into the town centre.
  • Overlooking Bournemouth beach.
  • 76 bedrooms including 16 family bedrooms.
  • 16 sea view bedrooms
  • 18 one and two bedroom timeshare apartments.
  • AA-rosette awarded restaurant, cocktail bar and sea-view lounge.
  • Indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
  • Private gardens and terrace.
  • Sauna, spa pool and a beauty treatment room.

Aside from our stunning location, we offer an awful lot to our short break guests whether you’re looking for family relaxation or some couple time. An indoor and outdoor swimming pool to lounge beside, nutritional, varied meals for the kids and an AA-rosette awarded dining experience for sparking romance. Great Hallmark Crew entertainment packs for our younger guests and beauty treatments available to parents. But it’s not just the hotel facilities that make a great short break. We’re a short stroll from Bournemouth’s many exciting attractions including Rock Reef adventure and did we mention, we overlook the beach?

And there’s plenty of history to experience at Bournemouth’s grande dame of hotels

Our hotel has a rich history. The Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton was built in 1861 as a magnificent private house for a religious minister before being transformed into a hotel that, by the mid 1930s, was Europe’s only privately owned five-star accommodation.

The hotel attracted the great and the good. Queen Victoria’s granddaughters arrived on holiday, as did Harold Macmillan, Enoch Powell, Sir Matt Busby and Bobby Moore. During WW2 it was at the heart of the action when General Eisenhower and Field Marshall Montgomery watched rehearsals for the D-Day landings from its East Cliff vantage point before debating landing plans inside the hotel.

Fantastic functions and seamless meetings

Our enviable location, close to Bournemouth International Centre means we’re a great venue for hosting all manner of business and private events.  Our accessible location and ample parking makes us hugely popular for team away days and training too.  There’s eight versatile meeting rooms to choose from which can host anything from an intimate dinner to a conference for 200. Combine great facilities with a team of meticulous, experienced meeting planners and together we’ll ensure that your meeting vision and objectives become a reality.

It’s perhaps unsurprising that the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton’s beautiful hotel and location have helped make it a special place to share a special wedding experience. You’ll struggle to find a more photogenic backdrop for photographs of the big day. We have no less than five suites licensed for civil ceremonies – hosting everything from small intimate gatherings to major knees-ups for 200 guests.

We’re award-winning

When relaxation is the order of the day, there’s no finer way to end it than at Frederick’s, our AA rosette-awarded restaurant whose majestic surroundings are matched by beautiful delicacies and friendly, attentive service. For families looking to wind down, the lounge serves a varied menu and children’s dishes all day. Between 2pm-5pm daily, the lounge is also a popular place for indulgence in our legendary afternoon tea. Why not, sun, seafront and homemade scores? What’s not to love?
