Barbara - Marsham Court reverts to former name June 2015

We were delighted to be one of 150 guests invited to The Marsham Court Hotel to celebrate the return of the Bournemouth building to its original name.

My Babylog and My Weddinglog memory chests are stocked by the events team for those who book the hotel for weddings or baby showers, so we had twice the reason to attend!

For the past few years the building was under contract with Days Hotel Group in order to raise £1.5m to renovate the 87 bedrooms, lobby, bar and conferencing facilities.

The Marsham Court Hotel began welcoming visitors in 1913 to its prime location on the East Cliff with fabulous seas views, and expanded in 1923 when demand for its humble 13 bedrooms spurred a link to the neighbouring properties creating 41 rooms.  During WW2 the building was taken over by the United States Red Cross as a convalescent home for injured soldiers.

Jennie Deavin, mother of current director Rosie Wallace, bought the hotel in 1987 when it was in need of refurbishment and Rosie explains that despite it’s temporary moniker, faithful guests and the local community still referred to it as the Marsham Court.

We are very pleased to see this historic hotel given a new lease of life inside and to see it’s traditional name back up above the door and wish both the hotel and the team the best for the future!
