Lovely cosy hotel, great staff, liked so much have booked to stay following our wedding in poole next year. The owner was so kind to actually show me the rooms we can book so we could pick the best for our wedding night. Breakfast was stunning and 5 min walk to the beach a real bonus. Would highly recommend.

This hotel is a real find, slightly off the beaten track but only 3 minute walk to fabulous beach. A warm, friendly welcome and exceptionally well appointed room, with everything you could wish for and more. We stayed in the newly renovated Stingray suite which was fabulously luxurious and tastefully designed and fitted. The dining room and sitting room were... More

Stayed here 3 times recently and had the most amazing time on all 3 occasions, fantastic breakfast, great nights sleep in comfortable beds, very clean and tidy throughout, the attention to detail is second to none. The staff are really friendly and the location is great to walk along the beach and have fish and chips from the chippy round... More

Our stay was relaxing and very enjoyable, a lovely house in a great location just minutes from the promenade down Branksome Dene Chine, where you can walk for literally miles towards Bournemouth or Sandbanks and Studland. And of course some of the best sandy beaches around and wonderful views towards the Purbeck hills. Our room was very comfortable and we... More

My husband stayed here for my 51st birthday and also our 1st wedding anniversary. It is awesome inside and lovely and old fashioned but with all the 'mod cons'. Nothing was too much trouble, I was a little chilly and provided with a heater immediately. The breakfast was freshly cooked with all fresh ingredients and although not huge there was... More

Grovefield Manor is a delightful hotel in a fantastic location just on the boarder between Bournemouth and Poole. It’s in the Branksome Park area, which is located near to the Branksome beach. Its beautiful tree lined avenues and access to the sea makes the area feel tranquil and relaxing. The house itself is beautiful and I believe it’s a listed... More

We have been here already three times, but the management change has changed the whole concept. The old management (incl. Charly) made this hotel a lovely, familiar, beautiful place ... but now it is still a very nice place, but the "flaire" has gone. AND things like the management does not know if the room is a twin (as booked)... More

We stayed two nights in Grovefield Manor and despite a very warm welcome, we won't be back... We booked through Booking.com. The room that we had paid for was not available and instead we were given a self contained attic apartment. The booking had a price of 230 pounds for the two nights. When we were offered the apartment as... More
