“very good hotel”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

It’s hard these days to find a good hotel in Bournemouth (that will make me popular with the other hotels) as the standard has dropped over the last few years. When trawling the internet for a one night stay I found this hotel and booked three rooms and hoped it would be as described.
The hotel is very good, the staff are welcoming, polite and extremely helpful, rooms are smart, comfortable and spotless, beds are good and the little touch of a folded sheet on the end of the bed for use if the duvet was to hot was most welcome in 27 degrees of heat.
We had two smaller doubles with walk in shower and a one large double with role top bath and walk in shower all of adequate size, wardrobes could be a bit bigger as don’t offer a lot of space just enough space for a one or two night stay.
Bar is light and smart the selection of drinks is good and a fairly priced wine list was most welcome.
Restaurant food was the only real negative maybe trying to bat above their weight, all three main dishes had some cooked and some seriously under cooked food on the same plate, lack of sauces was also apparent which were desperately needed to bring the plate together. My first and last experience I hope of slowly cooked pig cheeks served dry, were was the lovely cooking sauce?
I would have no hesitation booking this hotel on my next trip to Bournemouth and recommending it others

A last minute business trip brought me here after my usual Premier Inn was booked up.
So glad I found the Green House. For not much more I got a large comfortable, beautiful room.
The room came with still and sparkling water in large bottles, tea and coffee and biscuits.
The bed was large and comfortable and as the weather is scorching you are also presented with a sheet if the duvet is too much. Blinds also keep the room cool.
Breakfast in the restaurant is a great selection of pastries, fruit and cereal followed by the usual array of cooked breakfast, omelettes, and porridge and for an additional fee a champagne breakfast....shame I was working.
Also has a lovely bar with great friendly reception and staff.

I stay in this hotel regularly and always look forward to going back.

The rooms are superb, albeit a little strange with the bath tub plonked in the middle of some rooms. Every room has a difference to the other which is nice. The beds are quite soft, not for everyone but I like that.

The food is good, however I'd like to see a better breakfast with wider variety.

It's about a 15 minute walk from the centre of town which is ideal and has free parking outside which is adequate considering how many rooms the hotel has.

To be pedantic it would benefit them to install a lift, those stairs are a trek when carrying bags to the top floor.

All in all it's a great hotel, I'll always go back.

Buckets and spade available from the reception area are a nice touch!

My wife and I have stayed here many times over the last 4 years whilst our daughter has been at university and we have one more night booked later in the year for her graduation. Whilst it is great to stay in a hotel which is not part of a chain and that tries to be a little bit different it would also be nice if their systems were sophisticated enough to pick up returning guests. There is no sense of being made to feel as if you are anything other than just another faceless guest through the door. When we first stayed it was a really good hotel that was very welcoming - now it is just a hotel that could do with a bit of a freshening up. It is certainly good enough for us to stay one more time but not enough to make me feel like I will miss not going back.

In terms of location etc within Bournemouth it is still spot on - after all, that is something that cannot change!.

A pleasant experience all round, with comfortable rooms, friendly staff and tasty bar snacks for an afternoon of playing backgammon to avoid the rain. The breakfast was pleasant too, but the dinner restaurant was very expensive. I would return.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and were beautifully looked after, lovely staff, very comfy room and well equipped. Would very happily stay again. All the hotel rooms are named after trees which reflects the eco-ethos beautifully. Thank you

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor at the side of the hotel

Green Features: Very well executed and without stinting on comfort.
