Urban Beach Hotel

4 Star Small Hotel, Self-Accredited

The Urban Beach is a small boutique hotel and bistro located just a few minutes walk from the beach and from sister venue, The Urban Reef restaurant.

Come and stay at a hotel with real soul, an amazing atmosphere and a great team of staff, from Mark Cribb the owner and our manager, Chris Warwick, all the way down. The Bistro offers some great dishes with meat and fish that is locally sourced and freshly cooked by our excellent head chef Carl.

Our delicious cocktails use local Dorset blueberries and ginger, or locally made horseradish vodka for an amazing Bloody Mary. These ingredients are freshly squeezed and prepared and are sure to help you sleep. Having invested over £1 million on this small Victorian hotel our rooms are stunning with huge comfy beds, wake-me-up power showers, Egyptian cotton linen, arran aromatic toiletries, large plasma tvs, DVD players, a DVD library and 8mb web connections.
