We felt very welcome from our first arrival. Our bedroom was on the ground floor and despite being worried that I would hear people coming and going, didn't hear a thing and slept peacefully. Our room had a king size bed and a single and two shower rooms/toilets. Yes two! The heating makes the place feel cosy and snug (wish our system at home was as good). Breakfast was amazing, very tasty and good quality. Lovely walk into town centre (about 15 minutes downhill) and loads of great restaurants on your doorstep-Italian, Mexican and Japanese etc. We played crazy golf in the park (cheaper than the one near the pier), went to the Russell-Coates Museum, Splashdown (Poole), Arne RSPB nature reserve and Compton Acres. I would recommend staying here as you can leave the car behind and enjoy Bournemouth.

After realising the original hotel we had booked didn't have plug sockets near the bed I phoned The Winter Dene. Heather came to our rescue. We made our way to The Winter Dene where we were met by Heather. We were shown the room before agreeing to stay. The room was ideal. The bed was very comfy, loved the shower. Breakfast was freshly prepared and set us up for the day. Thank you Heather...not all heroes wear capes!

We had a great week at the Winter Dene. Renzo and Heather made us extremely welcome, the room was lovely and quiet, and the breakfast most enjoyable, with a good selection from a menu. Everything was very clean and all appropriate Covid precautions were taken. The hotel is in a great location and the town centre is only 5 minutes walk away. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent stay at this Hotel. Very friendly greeting and all Covid systems explained on arrival. Room was very clean and large bathroom was great with bath and overhead shower. Plenty of hot water whenever used. Beds were very comfy and a good nights sleep enjoyed every night, no noise from the traffic. Breakfast was great, you make your choice the night before, and is served to your table with a usual morning joke by mind host. Ideally situated for beech, restaurants, town centre and all amenities. Would definitely recommend and look forward to visiting again

We’ve just returned home from an overnight stay at the Winter Dene, and I can honestly say we couldn’t find a thing wrong, clear procedures in place for the current situation, lovely clean room, bathroom was spotless, very well positioned for the beach and the town and amazing breakfast, hosts were lovely we would most definitely return
