My partner and I enjoyed a 5night (mostly half board) stay recently and would thoroughly recommend it. The atmosphere was frienly and informal - right from the booking process with helpful comments and honest answers to our questions, through arrival (we were arriving late on a friday night - not a problem, staff there in abundance to help with luggage).
Jim and Carol continue to improve Bourne Hall - it is lovely but will continue to improve. We needed a few days' peace and pampering and this place was ideal; the hotel doesn't have full 4/5* service - full room service and so on - but it makes up for this with the friendliness and professionalism of the staff who all went out of their way to make our stay a delightful one. Our room was wonderful and spacious, and the bathroom with large bath and good shower were much better than we often encounter on our travels.
The food was good traditional home cooking with no pretentions - highly recommended, although more variety in the breakfast menu wouldn't go amiss. We enjoyed the pool and the spa facilities - Cathy is a star and the treatments were of a high quality and reasonably priced.
Overall - a lovely place.
