Lack of attention to detail. Our room in annexe was good but disabled friends were put in a small room up steep stairs. Booking for other friends had been forgotten. Rear garden dirty and not accessible. No comfortable place to sit in evening.

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,...

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...

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. The room was very comfy and beautifully decorated, the en-suite was very clean. There is a swimming pool and a sauna which are...

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...

On 20th Sept 2015 I booked a double room and a single room for seven nights at this hotel. Two other couples, our friends, also booked a double room each to stay at the same time. The hotel boasts AA status, swimming pool, bar, lounge, decking area, garden, etc. with welcoming hosts. On arrival Michael took our full payment for...

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. Whether he was pre-occupied or perhaps disinterested I don't know, but I feel this may have been because we had booked the room...

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. As you write under a pseudonym I'm sorry but I cannot place your booking to be able to comment on which room you had. If you booked one of our standard doubles then...
