The location of the hotel atop Bournemouth's Eastcliff is expceptional, without a shadow of a doubt. However, the rooms are a small, and a tad shabby - iron mark on carpet, poor water pressure, jaded bathroom. Also, although the chef cooks everything perfectly, the menu is limited, and the ingredients questionable. BUT, if you want sleep don't visit over the... More

The resturant was reccomended to us by The Ocean view hotel (this hotels sister hotel) and we were offered a 10% discount. We arrived at the hotel at 8pm and although the reception staff were a little vague the resturant was easy to find and the decore was beautiful. A lot of new staff were training on the night of...

Last Friday met a good friend for a catch up and a light bite and enjoyed a super omelette and chips in a pleasant bright and comfortable hotel overlooking the sea on one of Bournemouths most popular roads.

Wow, what a surprise. Wandering along looking for a bite to eat and came across The cottonwood boutique hotel. Menu looked good so went in. Staff were welcoming and attentive and the food was excellent. It was Wednesday so we had the steak and kidney pie with red cabbage, which was gorgeous!! Highly recommended.

We visited this boutique hotel for a birthday treat thankfully on a great deal we found online. The decor of the hotel was beautiful and our bedroom (room 1) had an amazing sea view! We had some fantastic treatments at Beauty Essence onsite. I would have highly recommended the hotel until we had dinner...... the waiter/bartender has little customer service... More

On arrival on 23/4/15 we arrived at the reception and was greeted by a lovely smiley receptionist who was friendly and put me totally at ease. The room was also nice with an absolutely stunning sea-view. The... More

I went to the Cottonwood Boutique hotel for lunch and was very impressed with not only how good the staff were but how amazing the view is as well, looking out over the ocean on a sunny Tuesday. I had a burger with seasonal vegetables, carrots and broccoli, which was all perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. I recommend anyone looking... More
