Sat on Overcliff Drive in the Dorset seaside town of Bournemouth, the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton is the place to be for those wanting to escape their everyday trials and tribulations.
Be it for an overnight stay in one of their luxury bedrooms or two hours of rest and recuperation in their exquisite bar and restaurant areas, all are given a warm welcome.
This notion is extended to tastecard members who, when calling in advance, are able to enjoy much of the delicious fare served at their bar and lounge at magnificent value when they produce their card upon arrival. The setting combines a superb service standard with a fabulous art deco dining room that incorporates warm interior for the winter time, and a gorgeous terrace area that offers stunning views across the sea – ideal for a summer time bite.
The venue is fit to cater for many an appetite, with a number of sandwiches and light bites being available for the diner on the go, as well as a host of dishes coming straight from their on-site restaurant, Frederick’s. This begins with the sumptuous starters, which includes a delightful crayfish cocktail, a wondrous grilled mackerel fillet, and a heart-warming watercress, rocket, and pea shoot soup, and moves right on through to the mouth-watering main course options. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the glorious hot smoked salmon and prawn pasta, covered in a delectable dill sauce, the scrumptious confit duck leg, served with a spiced sticky red cabbage spring roll, and the quintessential British favourite that is the deep fried traditional fish and chips.
Be it for a casual meal with the significant other, a catch up with some close friends, or a spot of rest and recuperation amidst a day of exploration, the Bar and Lounge at the Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth Carlton is fit to cater for all.
Please note: The tastecard discount is unavailable throughout December.
