My friend and I booked a christmas break at The Green House from the 24th to 28th December 2011. We arrived in the afternoon to be greeted at Reception by a pleasant and friendly member of staff. We were shown to our room, which was outstanding, Our intinerary was explained as was the fact that the hotel provided no entertainment (which we knew and one of the reasons why we booked the hotel). Came down and went into the bar for a coffee again greeted by a smiling,friendly member of staff, and so the theme continued. All the staff seemed genuinely pleased to see guests, who were always greeted with a smile; they were helpful and informative as to what was going on in and and around Bournemouth over the festive period. The evening meal was delicious, 4-5 courses, classed as a "Taster Menu", so smaller dishes, appetizer size, but more than enough and finished with tea or coffee. Breakfast was buffett style for the cereals, breads etc, and what a choice, followed by a hot selection which was taken from the menu and cooked to order. Christmas Day lunch had to be seen to be believed! It consisted of 6 courses, perfectly cooked and presented, again a "Tasting Menu" but what a delight. A buffet followed in the evening, again freshly prepared and served in the bar/lounge. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. It was serviced every day, yes, even Christmas Day. The hotel has plently of parking, is a 2 minute walk from East Cliff and the beach and about a 10 minute walk from Bournemouth town centre. My friend and I will definitely be going back to The Green House and would recommend it to other trip advisor users.
