I had heard that John's cooking was good but I found it was average First days lunch was sandwiches !!! Painting tutor could have been better. For £725 I expected... More

My three nights at the Boscombe Spa Hotel were exactly what I had hoped to find. There were 11 staying for a weekend course 'Winter Buildings' . From the welcoming glass of wine on the first night,... More

I go here frequently for art holidays, in which the hotel specialises. Nothing is too much trouble for the proprietors Christine and John. They maintain a friendly and relaxed house-party atmosphere. John's cooking is superb. Accommodation is simple but comfortable. The art breaks are really good value for money, with everything included (even wine at dinner if you want it)... More

We stayed at the Boscombe Spa Hotel through an internet offer and were really pleased. We had the downstairs room as my husband is walking disabled. The bed was a comfortable king size and although the room wasn't big, it suited us perfectly.The hotel is well looked after and Christine who owns the hotel and runs it was lovely. You... More

Stayed here for 1 night to go to the 02 academy, and the location was brilliant, only 5 mins walk away. Owners very friendly and extremely helpful, they recommended a lovely restaurant near by and mapped out our onward journey. Our room was warm, clean and functional - perfect for one night. Breakfast was freshly cooked and set us up... More

Arrived late on a Friday evening and stayed one night. Shown up to room by the owners 'helper'. The owners were out. One of the windows had no curtains. Arrived back at the room after an evening walk along the promenade (location excellent). When we closed the bedroom door, having had difficulty in opening anyway, we found that we were... More
