The perfect choice for our wedding reception!

We truly couldn’t rate Hotel Miramar higher. We held our wedding reception with them and Brian their wedding planner is fabulous. We felt completely cared for, to say nothing was too much trouble is an understatement. We wish we could experience it all over again!

The garden suite was exclusively ours, with its own bar. The dinner service was absolutely exquisite, every single dish was cooked to perfection and they catered perfectly to our guests dietary requirements. The wedding suite was gorgeous, as was breakfast the next morning.

The whole process of planning our wedding was made so much easier by Brian, who not only took on all of our crazy ideas but advised us from his wealth of experience in hotel event planning and management.

Honestly completely faultless!

Just perfect

We had the best day getting married at Hotel Miramar!
Brian and the team were extremely helpful and made all our wishes come true.
Everything was just perfect and smooth, so we could just enjoy the day without having to worry about anything.
We could not have asked for a better experience and we cannot recommend them enough.
Views are amazing from the garden too, it was just the perfect place with the best team!
Thank you so much!

Dream wedding day at Hotel Miramar

The Miramar team excels.
Everything at this hotel is fabulous. From the moment you arrive nothing is too much trouble. The food from breakfast to the wedding catering was excellent.
Our room was lovely, spotlessly clean and comfy. Many of our guests stayed and commented what a lovely atmosphere the hotel has.
Brett the wedding coordinator made the wedding go smoothly. From the planning to the actual day Brett was on hand. He oversaw all of the arrangements and table decorations and was very attentive all day snd made it seem like no trouble or bother at all when I phoned with many questions.
The management were also fantastic and welcoming. Theo and Marcin have ensured that the level of service and friendliness at this hotel is second to none.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Professional, attentive, customer service -

At short notice, Hotel Miramar took the driving seat for our wedding which took place 11th June 2021 (Covid restricted to 30 guests). I used to be in the wedding industry, and I could immediately tell that Marcin, the Hotel Manager was a true professional. Confident, relaxed, knowledgeable, helpful and flexible - nothing was beyond him or too much trouble. Everything that was planned and promised was delivered, and more besides. Brett, the Wedding Co-ordinator was also an absolute diamond. He was like a second best man guiding us, advising us, and confidently taking charge of the little things we hadn't even considered. Then there were the staff - polite, industrious, smart yet almost invisible as they went about their work, quietly and efficiently. As it was a late wedding with only thirty guests, we opted for afternoon tea. I had actually advised people to take a late breakfast, well I wish I hadn't as the food was delicious, professionally presented and plentiful. Professionalism, attention to detail and customer service are individually rare finds, but The Hotel Miramar has cornered ample stocks of all three. Finally I have to mention the location. A beautiful building, Perched on Bournemouth Cliffs, looking through palm trees to a 180 degree sea view. "It looks like The Caribbean" said one of our guests. Marcin, Brett, Hotel Miramar Staff - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so much more than we could dare to expect. I would say to anyone getting married near Bournemouth "Visit The Hotel Miramar first and save yourself a lot of leg-work"..

Fantastic from start to finish!

Hotel Miramar has long been a favourite of ours, due to the relaxed atmosphere, character, immaculate gardens and most importantly, superb staff. Following a 50th celebration meal there, we also knew the food was fantastic!

It was therefore an easy decision to hold our wedding there - ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebration. Although plans had to change due to COVID restrictions, Hotel Miramar was extremely helpful and accommodating and couldn’t have made it easier, both in the planning and ensuring the day ran very smoothly.

We can safely say our special day couldn’t have gone any better, in no small part to the staff, and in particular Brett and Marcin! Thank you so much!

Lovely personal day with amazing food

We got married in October 2020 when numbers were limited down to 15 for weddings. The Miramar made the wedding feel special despite these circumstances. The food was amazing! We ended up having an afternoon tea with a couple of people, the actual wedding reception and then a small group of four friends for the evening. The views from our hotel room were amazing, I just wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy them! A flood in one room changed the location of our wedding reception but actually for the better with sea views and a more intimate feel. We had a brilliant day and would thoroughly recommend the miramar. We were also very pleased with the cost- perfect during a pandemic with job uncertainty. Absolutely beautiful location, great disabled access which was very important to us and amazing sea views. Big thank you Miramar!

Highly Recommend

Sorry I haven't been in touch before, but hopefully you will be able to pass my thanks on to all involved in putting together wedding in July at the Hotel Mirimar.
From the welcome at reception to the wedding breakfast and the following day for our family meeting for breakfast, everything was brilliantly and professionally handled throughout every department.
I certainly would highly recommend your hotel to everyone and I know my family and friends are of the same opinion too.

Thank you once more Brett!

Stress Free

Where should I start..
From our first veiwing until we checked out team miramar were excellent!
Brett made everything so simple, easy and most of all stree free. Nothing was too much to ask and he was always on hand. On the day of our wedding we had compliments from all our guests about the venue, food and the staff. The entire team friendly and efficient enabling the whole day to run smoothly but most importantly they are a true asset to the hotel, it would not be the same without them or brett! 5 stars does not compliment them enough!
They receive our highest recommendations. THANKYOU!

Best day ever!

I literally had the best day of my life at our wedding at the Hotel Mirimar, from start to finish Brett our personal planner, helped calm my worries, and made sure the day went smoothly and as we wanted. The food was excellent, and the staff, all of them were just lovely. All our guests commented on the staff and the setting. The honeymoon suite was amazing too, almost a small apartment, with a beautiful sea view. I couldn't recommend the team high enough, and just wish I could do it all again.
Oh completely forgot to say, I had a broken arm 2 weeks before and thought the whole day would be ruined, but the team made sure it wasn't and I had the best day ever.
