Certainly better than most 3star chain hotels. A very friendly & efficient couple run this establishment & I was surprised that, when we came to settle the bill, they gave a rebate because my wife did not have the cooked breakfast. This is the first time that I have written a review of a hotel & I was prompted to... More

Around Bournemouth and Christchurch in Dorset it is fair to say the holiday maker, weekender or traveller is spoiled for choice when it comes to good accommodation. But we think we found one of the best when we stayed at The Rothesay at Highcliffe, Christchurch. This is a B&B to which we will certainly return. Situated within a very short... More

I would just like to say what a fantastic few days my husband and I had at the Rothesay Hotel. We were greeted by the owners daughter "China" who was extremely efficient, offering excellent Customer Service. On arrival, China greeted us with a huge smile and asked about our journey to the hotel, she then checked us in, showed us... More

I stayed for one night at the Rothersay. The welcome I received was wonderful, and offered a cup of tea on arrival. The room was OK, but a little noisy. Breakfast was full English and very good and overall, very good value for money.

Very elegant rooms and your kindness for accommodating us was very much appreciated. We would definitely recommend staying at the Rothesay, with the castle and beach almost your garden. This trip was a lets... More

I'm not sure I stayed in the same hotel as previous reviewer as we had a great weekend. I left my husband to book and was thrilled with his choice. Within a short walk of highcliffe castle and the beach you'd have no idea it was so close. On arrival we pressed the bell at reception and dee arrived straight... More

I must try to explain to any potential visitor that there is so much wrong with this unprofessional, un-kept, bed and breakfast/hotel. Unclean,uncomfortable and nothing as described in any of the adverts. The indoor pool is hired out to public for swimming lessons and children's parents sit outside some of the rooms, so no privacy! The room was in an... More

Family run business with great accomodation, including a good sized indoor pool which is unusual in a B&B, great breakfast, everywhere very clean and everyone very helpful, would not hesitate to stay there again.
