My husband and I have just had an enjoyable two night stay at the Water Garden.
Pro's: Owners were lovely and welcoming, nothing too much trouble - nice clean room and en-suite shower room, attractive communal areas, nice ambience, perfectly adequate breakfast for the price, lovely garden. Short walk to Cliff top with nice walk down to beach. 15 minute amble to town. Secure free car parking, the owners allowed us to leave our car in the carpark after we had checked out so that we could spend some more time in Bournemouth before travelling home pm., very kind.
Con's: Our room was at the front facing a busy main road, lots of traffic until the wee small hours plus fellow guests on Stag weekend and other generally 'lashed up' members of the public (vocally)wending their way homewards, ensured I was awake until about 4.30am. My husband slept through the lot! If your're a light sleeper, ask for a room at the back. If you don't want to share with Stag or Hen guests, ask before you book.
The owners have two lovely (large) dogs which were lovely and friendly, no trouble at all but if you don't like dogs, steer clear.
Overall, we had a very relaxed and enjoyable stay, felt very welcome and well cared for and this hotel offers excellent value for money for a budget holiday or weekend away.
