Druit House - Excellent!
I am not used to staying in Guest Houses (infact this is our 1st time), I was in the travel industry and have been spoilt staying in very plush 5* hotels around the world. Staying at Druits was a pleasant surprise! I did panic when I saw it close to the road and the centre or Christchurch, but our room (Room 2) was quiet and over looked the garden and a park next door. It was a large room with a single bed and Kingsize bed, both very comfortable and cozy, spotless room and bathroom ( well whole hotel was!), fluffy bathrobes and towels, hair dryer ( found that the last day in the dressing table drawer) lots of storage space and tea/coffee making faclities. We spotted Laura Ashley lights that we have!! so not cheap and chearful in any way. Room 2 also had a large patio area with patio table and chairs... great for when the sun shines.
We have a 6 year old son and room 2 was ideal, Angela had swapped a room upon our confirmation to suit our needs and it really did. The baby monitor worked a treat, allowing our son to drift off to sleep when my husband and I popped to the bar area for a night cap - literally just downstairs, we could hear/ see who entered hotel or go up stairs.And the very squeaky bedroom door would have let us know if my son was up and trying to come downstairs.
This is a family run Guest House the family can be proud of. It was recommended by a smaller Guest House owner who could not fit a family of three in a room. Angela took our booking and was very proffesional and friendly - I understand she is poory at the moment and we wish her well and a full recovery. The Man or the house cooks the most amazing cooked Breakfast - along with maintaining the Guest House and manning the Bar - a very lovely man and gave us some good tips on walks etc. We did meet the son who was shy but very pleasant and they all obviously work very well as a team.
Our friends who we had gone to visit recommended Cheese and Alfie's for an early child friendly supper - it was excellent and just a 5 minute walk from Druits.
Thanks you we hope to be back soon.
