If the beach is one of the main reasons you’re planning a stay in Bournemouth, a stay at the Marsham Court Hotel puts you right on the seafront in the centre of town. The hotel is situated on Russell Cotes Road – opposite the town’s famous Russell Cotes museum and minutes away from being able to sink your toes in the trademark golden sand of Bournemouth Beach. Location is key when it comes to the Marsham Court – you’re right on the beach and a matter of minutes from Bournemouth’s beautiful Lower Gardens and town centre, with excellent public transport links, shops, restaurants, cinemas and theatres. This 87-bedroom hotel has been refurbished to offer a relaxing and modern backdrop for your stay while retaining its Victorian charm.

Fortunately for residents of the Marsham Court, dining in comes with sweeping vistas across beautiful Bournemouth bay. The hotel restaurant is open for all meals – kick-starting your day with a welcome hot and cold breakfast buffet or perhaps you’d rather grab a quick bacon, egg or sausage sarnie and a drink any time up until midday.
For lunch or lighter bites, you can head to the bar, which serves food between 12pm and 9pm, with options including sandwiches (available 24/7), jacket potatoes, soups, salads, kids’ meals and afternoon teas.
