I stay here several times a year and thought it would be worthwhile to comment again for continuity. Whilst the number of rooms available has reduced slightly the quality has not. Great quiet nights sleep, big comfy bed, good wifi and a nice hot shower. Great breakfast freshly cooked. I won't book the Premier Inn in Highcliffe again!

Immaculate, modern bedroom with gorgeous ensuite. Great to be able to have a swim. Breakfast was of great quality and very tasty. Friendly and welcoming staff. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

A group of us stayed at this B&B for a night. We booked three rooms, three months in advance of the date. When we arrived we were greeted by a condescending gentleman who made snide comments. After requesting a Business receipt he changed his tune. The shower room was literally the width of a single shower by 6ft with shower,... More

Stayed for four nights in August. Lovely hosts, a few niggling things but in the main a very pleasant stay. Lovely swimming pool, nice freshly cooked breakfast. There was a comfy sitting area which would have been nice to sit in the evening to mingle with other guests. This wasn't possible as the door was locked during the evenings. The... More

I stayed here in August 2016 with a friend, when we arrived we were greeted by Michael who I can say is extremely helpful and friendly. We were then shown our room which was clean and tidy.

If you want to visit somewhere you haven't been before, a little way from all the noise of a high street to have a luxury break just the two of you? This is your answer! Our room was modern and decorated beautifully, the en-suite was very clean and homely. They offer sauna and swimming pool facilities which were exceptionally clean... More

After booking on the internet for a two night stay, we received a lovely email from the owner, Michael, which made us feel that he would be a very welcoming host. This wasn't apparent on our arrival.

Hello 'HappyladyWiltshire', or not as the case may be. I'm sorry that we did not meet or even exceed your expectations for your recent 2 night stay.

This lovely hotel is in a perfect location for the Castle, beach and local shops. We enjoyed the pool facilities before breakfast. The rooms were pleasing with neutral decor and a smallish bathroom, but excellent shower. Breakfast was delicious . I did take issue with the fact that the owner/chef did not wear gloves whilst placing the smoked salmon on... More
