Personal, relaxed, smiley and welcoming

We utterly adore ‘hospitality’. It genuinely makes us smile from ear to ear. We know there are hundreds of venues to eat and sleep in Bournemouth, so every day we wake up motivated to try and be the best. Please come and visit – let us show you the difference between ‘customer service’ and ‘hospitality’. It’ll make you smile too.

Our philosophy

We love quality, but hate formality, so we created the Urban Beach. We think people should be able to sleep in really good quality comfy rooms, should be able to enjoy delicious, but unpretentious local and seasonal food, and we believe in serving only the finest quality beverages in our bar. We believe you should be able to have and do all this, without wearing a suit, or even a tie.

We think when you go away, or go out for food and drink, you should feel really relaxed, and not awkward. We believe in nice wine, but don’t think you need to have a masters in grape varieties to justify your enjoyment. We believe life is fun, and work should be fun too, but ultimately everybody should be professional and polite.

We believe in treating our customers like our friends, with morals, and ethics. We believe in working hard, and being rewarded for doing so. We believe you need to feel the sand between your toes, and the waves tickling your feet, and the warmth of the sun on your neck.

We believe in happiness.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks or a room for the night

We’re open all year (in the Winter we do have reduced hours, so plese check)  to offer you a place to rest your head, nourish the body, share good times and embrace life. Since we opened in 2007 we’ve kept the ethos of relaxed luxury – a combination of contemporary Urban styling with a Beach vibe – at our heart.

Whether you are popping in for breakfast, a coffee and cake, brunchy-lunch, a beer on the deck, a dinner date or to stay in one of our 12 rooms, you can be sure that we will do everything we can to make your experience memorable.

We take care to source our food and drink from smaller, local producers wherever we can, because these guys really care about their craft and we think that makes for a better tasting dish on our menu or cocktail from the bar.

Nourish. Share. Embrace.
