Classic design and quirky innovation are central to the hotel’s aesthetic, with bespoke interiors and furnishings designed exclusively for Hilton Bournemouth by Ray Kelvin throughout. Hilton Bournemouth was developed by privately owned property company THAT Group, which owns the hotel and neighbouring Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth. Housed in a soaring glass structure, the 172-room property offers panoramic views to the coast and across the popular seaside town.

“With miles of beaches and buzzing nightlife, Bournemouth was a natural fit for Hilton Hotels & Resorts to bring its brand of hospitality and continue its expansion in the UK,” said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide. “This property incorporates cutting edge design with all the Hilton touches our guests identify with. Our collaboration with THAT Group and the opportunity to incorporate Ray Kelvin’s design expertise has created a posh getaway for travelers to create memorable experiences.”

Local craftsmanship and design influences are visible around the hotel, including specially curated items celebrating the best of British design. Artworks include a collection of local Poole Pottery, one of the largest on public display, and Colin Moore’s mural of Poole Harbour, which hangs in reception.

Peter Tisdale, THAT Group, said: “After four years’ hard work we are delighted to finally open the doors of the Hilton Bournemouth, as part of our Terrace Mount development.

“No ordinary design, the exquisitely curated hotel incorporates refined aesthetics with a quirky edge. Sitting perfectly alongside the innovative design and technological industries of the area, it’s a real head turner. We’re excited to welcome guests and hope they take some time to put their feet up, relax and enjoy their surroundings.

“Finally, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this impressive project over the four year period, your dedication is appreciated.”

Featuring eight unique meeting spaces and one of the largest ballrooms in Bournemouth, capable of hosting more than 350 guests, the hotel has collaborated with THAT Group to create a series of themed rooms capturing the pace, creativity and diversity of business. From typewriters emerging out of the walls to bowler hats hanging from the ceiling, each space offers guests a breath of fresh air.

Schpoons & Forx restaurant, created and overseen by renowned chef Matt Tebbutt, offers guests the very best of British cuisine with a contemporary twist. Fresh, seasonal sharing plates sit alongside dishes from the tandoor and stone oven. Meanwhile, Bournemouth’s highest bar, LEVEL8IGHT The Sky Bar, promises to wow guests. Visitors can savor bespoke cocktails whilst enjoying spectacular views across the Bournemouth coast line.

The hotel is home to one of the UK’s first eforea spas as well, offering guests personalised, transformative journeys to help invigorate, relax and revitalise. Four treatment rooms sit alongside a 20-metre indoor pool, sauna, salon and 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness suite.
