Stayed for 4 nights with friends,, Well run hotel with fantastic breakfast,, and evening meals.
would definitely stay here again..A couple of "niggles" put my case on top of the wardrobe..when I took it down it was thick with dust, and so was I !!! The shaving light did not work...and not enough shelf space in the bathroom, but as i say just niggles....overall though a very pleasant stay...Lovely views at the rear of the hotel...

Room Tip: Book at the back of the hotel, Quiet and good views.

We stayed at the Bridge House for 4 nights as part of a large party (50 ish) attending a wedding at Parley Manor. The main reason for booking the hotel was the close proximity to the wedding venue,the views plus the fact it could accommodate us all. From the time we arrived we felt very comfortable.We stayed in one of the suites which was large with a lovely view of the river. The rooms are very clean. Although some renovations are taking place at the moment it was not noisy.
The food (Carvery, dinner menu and breakfast ) were much better than expected and a very reasonable price. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
Thank you to all staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the river.

My husband and I stay here often as it is close to my Dad. Our room overlooked the river and fields beyond. There was no noisy extractor fan in our outside bathroom but next door's was quite loud in our room. Apart from that and a rather soft mattress our stay was wonderful. Superb, all you can eat, breakfast, lovely lounge area and outside verandah overlooking the river for an evening drink. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Plenty of other places we could stay near Dad but we choose to return to the Bridge House, Ferndown. We enjoyed watching the planes coming into land at Hurn airport but it may not suit everybody. No night flights though.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room overlooking the river

This is a basic, no frills hotel on a par with Travel Inn. I stayed for two nights when attending nearby Parley Manor for a family wedding; the location was convenient for this venue. A lot of fellow guests were staying prior to flying from nearby Bournemouth airport and I suspect that the ample, free parking brings added value to those leaving a car at the hotel for the duration of their holiday. I did not use this service and felt the hotel was pricey given the basic nature of the accommodation. The room rate varied for each night of the stay, which I challenged and was offered a discount on the price of breakfast to compensate for the difference.

The walls of room 117 are thin and neighbours in the room could be heard even though they were not excessively loud. Quieter the second night but the room next door appeared to be vacant.

The food quality is variable and I suspect much of it is bought in and simply reheated. The tai fish cakes are best avoided but the prawn cocktail and curry of the day were pleasant enough. Plenty of choice for breakfast but again some of the ingredients, particularly the sausage,were poor.

On the plus side, staff throughout the hotel are very friendly and helpful and the rear of the hotel has some lovely views. This place is crying out for a quality restaurant that would be fitting to a lovely riverside location.

Room Tip: Avoid room 117, we could hear the conversation in the next room and the couple were not that loud. Rooms at the rear of the hotel are quiet (away from the busy road at the front) but the downside of the riverside location at the back is that one needs to keep windows closed in the evenings to avoid insects from the river getting into the room.

Have had an engagement party here and an overnight stay. Used to have meals in a regular basis when we lived near. Have not been for a while until fathers day. Still good service and excellent value for money. Space outside for little ones without getting in the way of others enjoying a quiet lunch.
