Living in Bournemouth for 19 years I am always happy when I find or I am told about somewhere new, a hidden gem! Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel is definitely one of those!
The Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel is situated in the town centre on Durley Chine Road. I was invited by them to experience their Sunday brunch. I was so excited and thought this was the perfect way to spend my Sunday afternoon with my mum and littlest sister.
My family and I were welcomed by the lovely receptionist and walked to the restaurant, where we were greeted by the Maître D Sam and seated. Sam explained the menu options to us and where we could find the buffet options.
As you can see from the menu, you can have food from the buffet or have dishes made from the kitchen.
I ordered my starter from the kitchen and had toasted crumpets with streaky bacon and smoked cheddar cheese. I never thought about this combination on a crumpet before, but it was delicious. The cheese sauce was so flavourful and the perfect accompaniment.
There was a selection of mains at the buffet station.
For my main I decided on the buffet and chose the chicken with mushrooms, roast potatoes and vegetables. The chicken was succulent and the mushrooms added extra flavour. The roast potatoes were cooked to perfection. The perfect Sunday roast.
They had a wide selections of desserts and they looked so tasty that I had to have more than one ha ha! I chose a slice of the vanilla cheesecake and I made my own waffle with their waffle maker. The vanilla cheesecake was so light and the creamiest cheesecake I think I have ever tasted. It was delicious and could have definitely eaten another slice. The waffle was so good. We were able to make it ourselves. The waffle maker was easy to use and there was so many toppings. I chose to be a plain jane and just have maple syrup on mine.
I always find the atmosphere in a restaurant has a big influence on whether or not you enjoy your meal. During our meal the hotel had live entertainment. The Mellor Sisters were singing and they had beautiful voices. The music wasn’t too loud and complimented the experience so well.
I was very impressed with how clean everything was, it was something my mum and I noticed when walking through the hotel to the restaurant. The restaurant area has big open windows so it was light and we were able to still enjoy the sun.
The staff were so attentive and sweet. We were all so welcomed into the hotel and checked on throughout our meal. Whilst dining I could see how Sam was paying extra attention to all of the guests and making sure they were enjoying themselves.
Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel offers brunch every Sunday 12pm until 3pm. Once a month they have live Jazz/Swing music. For brunch, adults are charged at £14.95 and children at £6.95. Adults are given a free glass of fizz and children are given a free milkshake. How great is that? Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel is definitely a venue in Bournemouth you will need to visit. The ideal place for affordable elegant dining.
I want to say a massive thank you to Tony, Sam and Nikki for having my mum, sister and I for brunch. We all had a lovely time.
Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel is a perfect way to spend a Sunday, so why don’t you head down and enjoy some delicious food with the family. You can find them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
Have you ever visited Bournemouth West Cliff Hotel? What would you have picked from this menu? I’d love to hear in the comments.

Len’s and my mouths are drooling over the bangers, and back bacon. I miss bacon so much.
It looks amazing doesn’t it!
Family, and back bacon are the 2 things I miss from England.
You have family that live here?
We came over from Kent, 31 years ago. My daughter came too, but after 2 months wanted to go back. Met someone, has 2 daughters. Went back 25 times until hubby had a cerebral hemorrhage, and benign brain tumor. Haven’t been able to visit since. 😥
Oh bless you, I’m sorry about that x
In sickness and in health. It’s coming up for 9 years without seeing them.
That must be so hard 🙁 x
The tears come from time to time.
Awww hun x
3 – 1 to Bournemouth. ⚽️😊
I know. Was excited for you.

Oh my, this place is giving me deja vu. I work at a restaurant almost like this, down to the atmosphere! That pie and the drink with strawberries are making me hungry, though I admit I want the drink more!
Haha! Thank you for reading and commenting x

I feel as though everyone is posting about yummy food places lately! This brunch looks delicious and that pool looks heavenly.
It was such a beautiful venue and amazing food! I definitely recommend x
Please can you send your link x
This looks so delicious! It sounds like you had a lovely time.
Although, I am slightly confused as to why they’ve called it brunch (an amalgamation of breakfast & lunch) but have it in the afternoon! 😀
They offered breakfast options like the bacon etc, that’s why I believe
It was so pretty, definitely very relaxing! Thank you for reading and calming x
