We arrived at the hotel on Monday the 07/07/14 and stayed till Friday the 11/07/14 we had specifically asked for a balcony with sea view on check in there was uncertainty as to wether this was what we were getting however we did in fact get what we asked for there is only x 3 rooms with the balcony sea view and in this we were not dissapointed the view was excellent the room was comfortable however the floor creaked every time we moved around the decor was good the hotel had recently had a refurb x 3 years ago and apart from the creaky floors throughout the hotel it was good I noticed there was no table for the Balcony I phoned reception and in a short time Amy appeared with a table for us to use when sitting out on the balcony great the overall service was great I used the bar on several occaisions at night and enjoyed the service from Naomi and Frank who we also met in the restaurant at breakfast the service and food was faultless however if you required the restaurant service for the evening this was available through the sister hotel the Cottonwood Boutique next door this was not suitable for my wife because of her disability, I did ask at reception for a fridge on our arrival for the room as it was warm and I needed to keep water soft drinks etc cold for my wifes medication but unfortunately this was not available they did offer the use of the Hotel fridge which was not really what we wanted also I think I should asked for a fan for the room earlier I didnt know till the last night one was available I had mentioned this to Frank and he immediatley sourced one for me we enjoyed our stay the weather, views were great we used this location to tour dorset and it was a good choice,
