    The Bournemouth Eye is definitely the best way to see Bournemouth. The hot air balloon takes visitors up to 500 ft which gives spectacular views over the town, the English Channel and the surrounding countryside. The balloon is Bournemouth’s highest attraction and is often visible from wherever you are in Bournemouth. The gondola is large enough to accommodate 25 to 30 passengers and, if you are looking for a romantic treat, the balloon is illuminated in the evening.

There are lots of interactive activities with touch screen games, screen documentaries and feeding demonstrations. One of the best parts of the Oceanarium is the walk-through tunnel which allows you to see all the creatures swimming around and above you. There is also a café and gift shop for you to enjoy.

Wonderful Weekend

Had a wonderful weekend, staff very friendly and helpful. Food good, very clean .WE were on 2nd floor and our room was all that we could ask for. Trainee barman was not given the support from other bar staff, and was having the mickey taken by a couple dressed in biker’s gear which left a bad taste. But other than that all was EXCELLENT and we will return.

Good Weekend

Just had a 2 night break in majestic. Our room was very good and clean. The food was good but our only complaint is that our waitress was not very helpful and did not smile once.

Good Location

Hotel well placed for the beach and the buses. Staff friendly, good service at bar and the Restaurant. Real Ale would be good. Stayed on the top floor room was tired lack of sockets, Extension lead running round the room is not very good idea, Bathroom light with Shaving socket would be very helpful in the bathroom. Heating should've been put on because that weekend the temperature dropped below 50F and a lot of the customers are quite elderly. Overall a good weekend break for the money.

Great Weekend Break

Just had a great 3 nights at Majestic. The food was excellent very nicely cooked and good variety. The staff were very helpful and pleasant Rooms nice and clean but could do with brighting up I know the weather was dreary over the two days so may have looked better in the sunshine. Entertainment was excellent all three nights. Tony Rudd made our last evening one to remember as he was really on form. Would go back again in future.

Great Holiday

My friend and I came here for the first time, we have never been on a Shearings holiday before, (we came by car) we had a great time, all staff were so friendly and helpful, food was excellent. We stayed in room 211 which was really nice, modern and clean. We would definitely go on a Shearings holiday again. The only issue we had was that another hotel guest accused me of scratching his car in the car park, which I did not do. Could not fault this hotel. Thank you all the staff.

Great holiday

Just returned from a Shearings holiday based at your hotel. Room good, food excellent (especially the facility to also choose from the A la carte menu), entertainment on two nights first class. Staff were so helpful and polite. We didn't receive our complimentary bottle of wine (as promised in the brochure for four nights or more and feel this should be taken up with Shearings). All in all an excellent holiday. Thanks.

Lovely Holiday

I spent a very nice 8 days at the Majestic and would like to say I had a lovely time. As a vegetarian I found the menu was the best I had experienced with previous Shearings hotels. The nut loaf was really good. The trips out were excellent although we did not do the Christchurch one as the air show was on that day which we wanted to see. Only downside was the slow waiting staff and the noise from the entertainment which could be heard in the bedroom. Would come again but request quiet room.

Excellent Hotel!

Really enjoyed my stay at the Majestic Hotel. Everyone was down to earth (not snobby or stuck up their own backsides) and extremely kind. There's plenty to do and the price is quite cheap to be fair! I would definitely recommend this hotel to plenty of people. I will definitely be returning.
