The Hermitage Hotel dates from the 1860s and offers views of beautiful Bournemouth beach

Enjoy a classic English seaside break with a stay at this historic hotel offering stunning views, located just a short walk from Bournemouth beach.

Built in the 1860s, the hotel has a rich literary history. Famous poet John Keble made it his home in the 1800s and Victorian novelist Thomas Hardy chose it as a setting in his iconic novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles.

The hotel enjoys a fantastic location in front of Bournemouth Pier, right next to the town's exquisite park gardens. Inside you'll find elegant and comfortable rooms, featuring glorious bay windows if you upgrade to the Superior Sea View category.

There are two dining venues: AA Rosette-winning Hardy's, offering locally-sourced cuisine, and NEO Restaurant, a charming brasserie with unique décor. Step outside to enjoy miles of award-winning beaches and over 2,000 acres of beautiful parks and gardens, or take a short drive and explore the magnificent Jurassic Coast.
