School Groups

Bournemouth is the perfect place to visit on a school trip with our beautiful beaches and varieties of places to walk and experiment. The Ashleigh, together with its neighbour makes school trips easier with affordable stays in rooms with up to 11 beds.

Our rooms offer ideal accommodation for schools and other educational groups. Purpose built for group accommodation with multi-bedded rooms.

Just a few minutes walk from the cliff top and two hundred metres from Knyveton Gardens.

Schools that reserve accommodation with The Ashleigh can have sole occupancy of the building, the lead staff member would have a master key to all the rooms.

Sufficient parking space for two coaches. Kettles and televisions are normally disabled in children’s rooms for safety. Larger school groups can be accommodated using two buildings, the Ashleigh and the adjacent building or one nearby, giving the option to accommodate groups of upto 85. Bournemouth is an ideal base for schools, Blue Flag beaches just a short walk and locally a large choice of venues to visit for education requirements as well as pleasure. Breakfast, packed lunches and dinner is provided and students with food allergies/dietary requirements can be catered for. Resident proprietors, Ray and Julie Bright have many years experience with schools and can tailor your school’s stay to your requirements.

Very friendly staff. Reasonably priced full English breakfast and no moaning if you asked for more or less of an item in the breakfast. Tea & coffee making facilities in the room, which were topped up each day, never had that before, usually have to beg for such things in other hotels. Hotel is near a large supermarket, maybe 15-20m walk to the beach or shopping centre. Overall, fab, thanks :)

Excellent Accommodation for School Booking
I stayed here in July with 45 students as part of a school residential trip. The staff were extremely accommodating throughout the booking process and very helpful throughout our stay. The accommodation has a number of rooms with a varying number of beds in. As we were a school group we had sole occupancy of the whole building which was perfect. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean. All students and staff had a pleasant night stay with a lovely breakfast in the neighboring hotel the next morning. Would definitely recommend to any large school group.
