We attended our Office Christmas Party at the Cottonwood in December. Jo - Head of Sales and her Team organised everything for us and did an excellent job. Dinner on the evening of the party was delicious, hot and well served considering we were not the only group of party goers. My partner and I stayed overnight and we had... More

We reached this hotel last night at 12.06am, only the porter was available, we had our 2 sleeping children with us, we hoped for a quick check in as hubby had originally booked the ocean view hotel but someone from cottonwood called up saying we had been changed to this hotel and there will be no problem upon arrival, unfortunately...

Staff amazing. Excellent customer service. Dinner/breakfast excellent variety and very high quality; veggie friendly; remembered dietary requirements. Quirky/fun décor, great value. Handmade birthday chocolates in room a bonus.

We spent three days at the Cottonwood including new years eve. The new years dinner and entertainment were excellent. On the other days the food quality and service were very good. The hotel is let down by the bedrooms, we had a lovely large sea view room but they need updating and in my opinion are nowhere near boutique hotel... More

Spent 2 nights for my birthday treat. Hotel was quirky, lots of crushed pink velvet furniture and curtains and flock wallpaper. Bedroom was lovely with magnificent sea views, over a pretty garden, and atmospheric 1920's type prints on the walls.The bathroom was spotless. Our bed was very comfortable. Loved the 1920's Great Gatsby type décor and ambience. Staff were friendly.... More

On arrival, had the choice of 3 rooms and was shown each room for us to choose from which was nice. Nothing was too much trouble. Friendly staff, sea view, only 10 minutes from pier. The hotel has unique décor which added to its character. Room and bed were good. Lovely breakfast in a nice room.

Just spent three nights at this hotel. Found the hotel clean and the staff very friendly. The lady serving breakfast was extremely friendly and helpful, and should be commended. Would definitely recommend to others. A comfortable room with a sea view was a real treat, having stayed in some pretty poor hotels in Bournemouth. This hotel offers excellent value for... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights Saturday and Sunday on a Bed and Breakfast basis. The staff were very polite and the hotel was spotless. It is old with character in the building, a few creaks here and there but the rooms were spacious. We had a sea view and got a bottle of wine in our room on... More
