The friendly, family-run Durley Grange Hotel sits prettily in a quiet corner of the popular West Cliff area of Bournemouth ready to extend a warm welcome to its guests. The hotel is just 400 metres from the beach and the same distance from Bournemouth town centre, in easy reach of its high-street shops, theatres, restaurants and clubs.
Stay, your way
Whether you’re a holiday maker, staying in town for a show or event or coming to Bournemouth on business, the Durley Grange Hotel has a wide range of amenities and choices of room to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.
There are 52 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, plus tea and coffee making facilities and a direct dial telephone. The single and double rooms, family and twin rooms are kitted out with a 22-24-inch LCD television, hairdryer and newspaper on request.
Touch of luxury
Treat yourself to a Junior Luxury Suite and the amenities include a 32-inch LCD television. You get an in-room safe, private lounge area in your room, a separate shower and a trouser press plus a luxury king size bed. For the ultimate treat why not reserve the Durley Superior Suite with the same luxurious amenities in an even grander setting?
The first floor can be accessed by stairs or a lift. Families should please note that children are welcome but all guests must be over the age of one year.
Four course dining
The Durley Grange Hotel has its own restaurant – The Grange – which is open for breakfast and evening meals every day of the week. The evening menu offers a wide range of modern cuisine masterminded by Head Chef Michael Powell. There are 13 different four course dinner menus which change on a daily basis, meaning you can enjoy a different meal every night of a longer stay. The four course meal costs £20 per person and you’ll find dishes inspired by the very best of British and continental food, cherry-picked for their taste and availability of seasonal ingredients. The chefs are fully experienced in catering for people with all types of dietary requirements – simply make the team aware when you make your reservation.
Extensive wine list
If you fancy a cheeky glass of something to accompany your meal, the experienced bar team led by Maitre d’ Susana Sousa can present an extensive wine list and expert advice on the right bottle to complement your menu choices.
If you are interested in having a working lunch or a get-together with family or friends, the team will gladly organise a catered lunch, simply contact the restaurant and they’d be happy to arrange it with you.
The breakfast menu is equally as extensive, with a choice of a hearty full cooked English and various continental options. Breakfast is served between 7.30am and 10am but if you’re dashing off earlier the Durley Grange can lay on a continental breakfast for you even earlier on request. If you don’t think you’ll have a chance for a sit-down breakfast, you can always ask for a packed lunch to take with you – please ask about this during check-in or when placing your booking.
The Durley Grange offers a convenient 24-hour room service, serving hot meals of your choice from 8am to 10am and 6pm to 8pm. Various sandwiches, salads and cold meat platters are also available via room service during these hours.
Live entertainment programme
If your evening meal has set you up nicely for a cosy night in, the Durley Grange hosts a wide variety of entertainment acts from across the region including singers, dancers and other performers. During peak times, the hotel hosts live performances up to five times a week – the ideal way to unwind after a long day on the beach or a time to relax before a night on the tiles! And over Christmas and New Year, entertainment is laid on every night of the week to make your holiday even more special.
Indoor pool and spa facilities
Another blissful opportunity to unwind is in the indoor heated pool with pine clad sauna and whirlpool hot tub. The ozone treated swimming pool is open from 7am until late – ideal for an invigorating wake-up or some leisurely lengths before dinner. The sauna can be used any time of the day and is a great way to revive tired and sore muscles after long strolls along Bournemouth’s pretty Prom or a day around the shops. Simply give reception 30 minutes’ notice before you want to use it.
The Durley Grange also has a peaceful Mediterranean-style sun patio where you can sit, relax and enjoy the Bournemouth sunshine and a bar serving drinks, coffees and snacks.
