We stayed for 3 nights and loved it. Very comfortable and perfect for a romantic stay. It is set on the cliff-top with stunning views from our room - from the Isle of Wight around to Swanage. It is 20 minutes walk to the town centre and 5 minutes from the Lansdowne, where the night life starts. The decor in... More

Very pink and bold, not to everyones taste, but when you look at it a little closer, the decor has been done with flair and compliments the old building! Loved the old pull across grill type lift! Enjoyed my stay. Staff were very attentive, bar was lovely, food great!

Second time booking here. Booked a family room. The day before we were informed of a function. When we got to our room unfortunately it only had a shower and with a fussy 3 yr old and 3mnth old, we really needed a room with a bath. The receptionist was amazing and really went out of her way to find... More

We had a great day at the end of August viewing the Air Show from the Cottonwood's very good position high on East Cliff. We and our guests enjoyed drinks and a substantial barbecue lunch in the garden outside; later there was a cream tea. Service was efficient and friendly. We - and the hotel - benefited from fabulous weather;... More

The Cottonwood Hotel was just great. The staff were more than helpful. All our rooms were large, clean and had wonderful sea views. The bar food was fantastic and the breakfast was lovely too. We would most definately stay here again.

The Cottonwood hotel is a great hotel both in terms of value for money and location. We moved hotels as The Royal Bath in comparison was terrible and a rip off. We would defiantly stay here again thanks very much.

We were uncertain as to what was meant by a boutique hotel and we are still puzzled. Despite the hotel being almost empty we were allocated a rather dingey and shabby room at the back of the hotel , the beds were really soft and springy and every time I turned around my wife was almost bounced out of the...

This hotel was a great find! We stayed for a weekend away with friends and found it to be a great value hotel. Okay so the bathroom was small but who cares it was clean and served it's purpose. The room was a good size with sea view and all that you need. Bar was great and breakfast good, we... More

We booked through Lastminute as their 'secret romantic hotel' for a short break to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Despite under-occupancy we were given a tired, dated, dark & dingy room on the top floor, overlooking the car park and also overlooked by staff accommodation. Each morning we were woken by the noise from some kind of machinery starting-up. The ensuite... More
