We recently stayed for the weekend in August to attend a wedding and it was lovely for the wedding party to have sole occupancy of the hotel.
This place is a little gem, it’s tucked away down a lovely leafy road and definitely a place to try if you like something special…
We stayed in the Holly Room, at the top of the hotel, facing the front, if I had one thing to note it would be that A/C or a fan would have been useful that particular weekend as it was ‘summertime’ and the room did get pretty hot even with the window left open (by the way I just loved the shutters, a nice touch!)
The room itself was spacious enough, although the wardrobe door could have done with a squirt of WD40, and the large walk-in shower was my kind of thing…
Loved the roll top bath and it being in the room in front of the window, another little touch were the homemade biscuits, which were delicious :-)
The Staff were very attentive and responded to any requests, we had to have the duvet and pillows changed (due to allergies) as they were duck-down, this was done and without any fuss, the bed by the way was nice and big and sooooo comfortable.
We had breakfast on the Sunday and our only gripe was that the fried bread was completely over cooked, apart from that you couldn’t fault it, the choice was varied, from fresh fruit, continental to full English, so definitely something for everyone and it was good to see the food was sourced locally where possible.
The wedding itself was lovely and flowed really well, the décor was pleasing and the garden area to the front of the hotel is an added bonus. The food served for the Wedding Breakfast was outstanding, the Mushroom ‘froth’ for the appetizer was very different but very tasty, the lamb starter was delightful and the mint ‘jelly’ was so cool, such a fun fab idea!
The evening reception was held in the hotel’s event room, this was of a reasonable size and in the ‘basement’ of the hotel, although you wouldn’t know it, it was also nice to have a bar area down there as well as the main bar upstairs.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, it’s close enough to the beach and everything else that Bournemouth has to offer and if you like ‘extra special touches’ this will be the place for you. Would we come back? Yes that’s for sure… :-)
