The hotel is very well situated in a quiet road just back from the sea front. An easy walk to the centre of Bournemouth and all the attractions.

When you arrive the hotel looks like it could do with some attention to the exterior but don't let that put you off - the owners have clearly been focussing on the interior and have done a good job of updating what must be a difficult hotel to work on with all its character. We had a warm welcome from... More

Very surprised by the looks from outside, then the massive welcome from the lovely owners. Comfortable family room well placed to the beach, local shops and restaurants. We were made to feel special with conversation and kindness. Great breakfast!!

Bournemouth is fast becoming overcrowded with Stag parties and hen nights so this little hotel away from the madding crowds is a quaint little number! Our double room was on the small side but was quiet and clean. The shower was a tardis but I liked the lighting in the bathroom! ECC is is situated in tranquil Grove Road and... More

We were given a warm welcome by Kim and offered a hot drink before being shown to our room. The family room was very nice, very warm and very clean with plenty of space for the kids. Only slight...
