Length of time they've been running:

Built in 1866, the Hermitage Hotel was originally a boarding house known as The Brookside, frequented by Thomas Hardy and the setting for the famous murder scene in Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Peter Tuck, a founder of Bournemouth, also lived here in the 1900s. The hotel became Hermitage in the 1980s.

The four-star Hermitage Hotel is unquestionably in one of Bournemouth's best hotel locations. It is located directly on the beachfront, in front of the Pier, and provides easy access to the beach and city centre without having to cross a single road.
