We had our work away day here which was an outdoor bbq. There were 60 of us. The bbq had variety but the burgers were overcooked. Everything else was very tasty! For pudding profiteroles which were amazing. The hotel is lovely with great outdoor garden and space to enjoy the sun

The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel is situated at the eastern end of Bournemouth's sandy beaches almost central to the two piers. There is adequate parking available. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and were able to book-in right away. We made our way to our room which was adequately appointed and had a perfect sea view. Breakfast is of the buffet... More

Friendly staff, good size room and clean. Lovely sea view. Breakfast was fine. Parking for car. There to celebrate a friend's birthday and facilities were good. Food for party was good. Room was big enough and you could have access to front garden.

We stayed for 2 nights, the bed was 'ok' the room had seen better days, the bathroom was reasonable but the plug did not work and the shower was not adjustable enough to be lowered to suit me. The wifi in the room was intermittent at best. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good and plenty of... More

This is a hotel that would suit a business traveller to Bournemouth who did not want to stay at a Travelodge but it is lacking a boutique feel and more unloved. Location is nce and quiet at the far end of the Undercliff Road but not ideal for a walk into Bournemouth. The room that we stayed in was a... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Cottonwoood Hotel. It is situated at the seafront and to the Bournemouth Peer it takes a 15 minutes walk. The room was spacious and we had seeview. The breakfast was quite heavy as it was served typically English but you had also the choice to go for a healthier meal with cereals and... More

Stayed for one night only as out for the evening in Bournemouth. Décor has to be seen to be believed - thought I was in a "lady's" boudoir! Friendly helpful staff. Bedroom carpets shabby with a hot iron print in the middle of the room. Bathroom had a shower in the bath but no curtain so could not be used.... More

Was convinced two elephants had checked in for a honeymoon over night stay in the room above...after more thought it was likely to be a major squeaky floor board issue, any move in any direction means at least seven floor boards have something to say about it...decided to leave at the crack dawn as the bed was tiny also...
