We booked a 3 night break in March at Bourne Hall ONLY because it boasted an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi. This was the first disappointment. The jacuzzi was barely tepid and the pool unusable as it was completely freezing. The heating had been turned off and the door left open day and night 'because of the condensation problem'.Room 6...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your response and helpful comments. I apologize with reference to the pool not being to an adequate temperature, our leisure facilities have just been refurbished with pool carpet being laid throughout the complex, atmospheric LED lights and drapes being fitted. During this time, the pool and Jacuzzi had to be switched off and drained in... More

What a gem. We made the booking fairly recently and got a very good rate for our double room. On arrival we had a free upgrade to room 4 which is superb.

Dodgy PVC doors and windows have much to answer for! Wonderful reception rooms and bedrooms, such potential if it was not situated at the bottom of the Isle of Wight. Supposedly built for one of Queen Victoria's Ladies in Waiting, she may have been alarmed by the pine furniture in the grand bedrooms, including the four poster! Designer bath looks... More
