For some travelers getting beyond the big-city chaos of London is a must if they are going to truly see the real England, and one town that is an excellent choice for escaping the city is Bournemouth – it sits on the southern coast, and has long had a reputation as a spa resort. So, while it may not typify all little coastal towns in England, it will certainly be relaxing! And thankfully the town’s long-held resort standing means that there are lots of cheap hotels in Bournemouth to choose from.

Despite the words “spa resort town” being associated with Bournemouth, it is not a place that is all posh hotels or boutique luxury B&Bs – because the town has such a history as a destination people flocked to for recuperative treatments, it has had years to develop accommodation options at both ends of the spectrum and everywhere in between. So stay in one of the cheap hotels in Bournemouth and use the money you saved on an extra massage or spa treatment!

Bournemouth has been attracting those in need of R&R for more than 100 years, and although it has been once again increasingly popular as a destination, visitors can still experience some of the same peace and quiet that lured the first folks. There are luxury spa hotels a-plenty, and you can enjoy spa treatments and soaking in the Turkish salt baths even if you are staying in the cheap hotels in Bournemouth – the spas are not just for the guests! Plus, the Bournemouth beaches make a great place to relax and enjoy fine weather, all without booking a spa treatment.

A few of the cheap hotels in Bournemouth worth checking out are Russell Court Hotel (within easy reach of town center and beach, 57 rooms, on-site restaurant, laundry services available), The Manchester Hotel (walking distance from beach, evening entertainment on-site, bed & breakfast or bed, breakfast & dinner options available, discounts for midweek stays), Ramada Encore Bournemouth (114 rooms, in the town center, internet connections in rooms, breakfast buffet included), Travelodge Bournemouth (1 mile from town center, 1.5 miles from beach, WiFi available), and the Premier Inn Bournemouth Central (new opening July 2008, on-site restaurant, near Bournemouth Pier)
