Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Completely lived up to expectations. I can’t give higher praise than that because I’ll admit my expectations were high associated with this brand. The price point really made me feel like I’d got a great and fair deal. It was attainable for us despite being on a budget. We enjoyed the food very much. The room was beautiful. We enjoyed the gift shop, although it was slightly light on stock (I would have spent more) The staff made us feel like we were locals. We are already planning our next visit with our motorcycles, friends and family in tow.

Gorgeous place. The owner, Jack has put his life and soul into this venture and it shows. Amazing food, amazing service in an amazing environment. The Cumberland sausage and egg bap was a triumph! Well done, guys we will be back without a doubt!

I am constantly on the look for the best roast and I can honestly say I’ve found it…. Incredible. So tasty. Meat, gravy and roasters to die for!! I didn’t think anyone could do a better roast than I can but this was incredible. Like the vibe you’ve created : )

Hotel, store and restaurant/bar in one. We loved the atmosphere, the friendly staff and guests, very good food, the carfully curated and clean rooms and the all Deus decor. If you like motorbikes, you are in for a treat. Bournemouth and the beaches are beautiful. We‘ll definitely go back soon.

Been a few times for takeaway coffee and once to sit in on a week day morning, so relatively quiet. Having been to Deus in Ibiza town it’s cool to have it at the end of our road! Staff attentive and coffee is good and hot.

Amazing cool place to stay ! Really short walking distance to the beach. Food was another level, had a Sunday roast ! Definitely be back for a short stay soon! All rooms are different, one with bunk beds for kids to stay & extremely spacious rooms for a small hotel

An awesome venue with a very chilled vibe. Fab to visit for just a drink or to shop or have dinner. Menu was small which is a positive as food was superb. The fish stew was one of best I’ve tasted. Excellent staff. Good choice of drinks. Amazing indoor fire pit.

Dues Ex Machina - Welcome new edition to Dorset. This cool hotel, restaurant and bar has a wide selection of food and drink with some open fires and plenty of seating. There is a Deus shop embedded in. It’s relatively new and staff are finding their feet, but it’s worth calling in even if it’s for some bad hand coffee! If you are staying it’s 5mins walk to the beach!

WOW! New restaurant in Bournemouth is a breath of fresh air. Friend and husband and I went for a Sunday Roast expecting the usual "okay" meal we usually get but just WOW! Although we were later in the day...the beef was not overcooked. In fact it was cooked to perfection, tasty , and melted in our mouths. I had the leanest, most tender pork belly ever but with a real cracking crackling. Our vegan friend had the nut roast which was served with uptmost care (seperate gravy, etc). I am not usually into nut roasts but again, it was delicious. Veggies to die for! Again, not overcooked, full of flavour and not your standard fare. ROAST POTATOES were very crispy and fluffy on the insides. I am not a potato persron either but I couldn't get enough. We topped off dinner with almond tart and cheese cake. Also well above the standard fare you usually get. As well the ambiance was sublime. Hip and chic and the restaurant was buzzing. Prices are great for the highest quality food and expertise of the chefs. I can't wait to go back and try more of the menu. This place is a real find.
