Constructed in 1913, the Edwardian Marsham Court Hotel was originally one of only a handful of purpose-built hotels in Bournemouth. Its popularity quickly flourished and, by 1923, the hotel had expanded in order to accommodate more guests.

The name was changed to Days Hotel in the 1980s when it was bought by the current director's mother, but was reverted back to its historical name, Marsham Court, just two years ago in 2015.

  • Mr and Mrs H - September 2016

    From the very first phone call, email & meeting, Andy & Emma were there every step of the way with their amazing 'can do' attitude. Every single request, question or query we threw at them was taken on board with enthusiasm. Emma met the bride at the door shielding her from every one, then a quick run through with the registrar, Polly, before the ceremony started. Whilst we were waiting for the reception to start we spied the chef (worked there 28 years) who had prepared all our food, & managed to have a chat with him as well and also to say thank you. As to the reception room; well, our breath was taken away as Emma had followed our instructions to the letter and set the tables up exactly as we had requested. The whole day flowed so seamlessly nothing was too much trouble, even Emma was late leaving after her shift but she didn't stop smiling. Throughout the whole weekend nothing was too much trouble. Your staff are a credit to themselves, the hotel, Bournemouth & the hotel industry as a whole.

    Andy and Emma are a true credit to the hotel. Andy was amazing with the children and making them feel welcome with ice creams and joining in their games. It was great to see Emma and to be reassured that everything was all ready for the big day. She wasn't wrong, everything from decor to the service of the staff was amazing, the whole day flowed really well, even some last minute seating adjustments were no problem. Andy also made sure everything was perfect in the evening. The transformation of the room throughout the day was so quick I didn't notice any of it happening! We were all sad to leave after such an amazing weekend with family and friends and an absolutely perfect wedding day, thank you so much

  • Samantha - September 2016

    We had our wedding reception here in August 2016 and it was fantastic! The room was dressed beautifully by Emma and the staff as it was a DIY wedding and it was exactly how we pictured it. The staff were great, making sure our day was perfect and the food was incredible; everyone loved it. Thank you to Andy who was the duty manager there on the day, introducing himself to us the moment we arrived and making sure everything was perfect and what we wanted. We'd also like to say a huge thank you to Emma our wedding coordinator who helped us so much in the run up to our wedding day and on the day itself, you made the planning less stressful, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We truly had the best day from beginning to end and this was partly down to your staff and hotel, thank you so much for everything.
