Only by accident did we find this place on our way back from a trip to Boscombe and very glad that we did! We stayed for a couple of drinks and lunch, promising ourselves that when we have more time we will spend longer there. A very decent selection of food on the menu and a fair selection of drinks...

Yet again (think it was our 8th visit) a lovely break in this great boutique hotel. The staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. Both Charlotte and Lee went out of their way to make my partners birthday extra special. The food is great and the atmosphere very relaxed. Our only criticism was that the room was very... More

This place is fabulous. It was recommended by a friend and my husband and stayed there on a joint business trip. It could not have been better. The room was stunning and immaculately clean, luxury furnishings, linens and toiletries. Breakfast was wonderful, and the room service kedgeree in bed was a fabulous treat! The food is locally sourced, and prepared... More

All the staff were genuinely friendly, and welcoming. The room was lovely and clean. Breakfast very good, a must try is Dave's Bloody Mary along side it! Nice to see how all the staff including the house keeper were happy to be working there, and everyone got on well. Great stay, really good atmosphere. We would definately stay again and... More

I really like this place. This was my second stay as I occasionally have to go to Boscombe for work. I wouldn't necessarily say it's a typical "business" hotel as it's more of a relaxed b&b type of accommodation but I liked it so much the first time I wanted to return. It's a little tucked away from the seafront... More
