Friendly welcome; room more than adequate, clean and comfortable. Really excellent breakfast, which set one up for the day splendidly. Convenient location - centre of Bournemouth easily accessed on foot or by bus. Excellent value for money

We booked this hotel only 1 week before we stayed. We booked the family room for 2 nights. We arrived early (1pm) and the owner was kind enough to allow us to leave our car in the car park whilst we went to the beach with our 7 year old son, which we ealsily found - about 10 minute walk... More

We had a short long weekend break. Our travel to Bournemouth had taken much much longer than planned. Our journey down the A1 (A1M) was fine, but unfortunately after that it became horrendous as we endured long delays on the M25, M27, M3, A31 and finally the A338. It was a Friday after all! When we finally arrived, all the... More

Stayed 2 nights B&B. Chose this hotel because it is in walking distance of the BIC (about 10 -15 mins walk). The room was large, clean and well decorated, and the bed was comfortable. The en-suite was also large. The service at breakfast was very efficient and the food was good. Location was great. Will definitely stay at the Winter... More

This hotel is within 10 mins walking distance of the town, parking was easy with plenty of spaces. Excellent breakfast choices, one small negative point was the size of the room my husband and myself were allocated, it was on the top floor with a sloping ceiling and very little floor space. A tall person might have problems avoiding banging... More

Thank you for your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your breakfast. We did discuss your room being on the top floor before you made the booking. If you had raised your concerns about fire safety we could have showed you that we are fully compliant and certificated in all areas. All doors are fire retaining doors and negate... More

Stayed in the Winter Dene for a single night. Room smallish but clean and comfortable, with all necessary facilities. Bed very comfy. Per-person pricing meant superb value for solo traveller, with good breakfast included. Friendly hosts. Good car park. Nice garden. Easy walks to town, beach and cliffs. WiFi worked throughout hotel, though a bit slow at popular times.

An excellent find. Spacious room with all facilities. Good breakfasts. Plenty of parking but anyway only 5 to 10 mins walk of beaches and town centre. Very fairly priced for such good quality accommodation.
