“Excellent all round”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had chosen a great place to stay. Having experienced the bad side of Bournemouth accommodation, it was a relief to find somewhere that was clean, friendly and comfortable.
The Green house is a few minutes walk from the seafront, and although it has a car park, this gets busy so you may need to pay and display outside. We were lucky, and managed to park, and not use the car because it provided us with a great base to walk along the coast.
The room we stayed in was large, clean and welcoming. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have stayed in. The little extras like bottled filtered water and homemade shortbread biscuits were a nice touch.
Our bathroom was immaculately clean, with a really large powerful shower and fresh clean towels daily.
Breakfast was varied and extremely tasty, choices including wild mushrooms on toast, scrambled egg with smoked salmon, as well as a continental style buffet with fresh compotes and very tasty pastries.
We booked through hotels.com and got a very reasonable deal for our room, and will definitely return.

The bed was very comfy, the food good and loved the character of the room as well as the huge shower. The only thing I would slightly criticise is the room was cold when going to bed so put a lot on but woke up stiflingly hot in the morning when the heating kicked in.

We stayed for one night after reading reviews from Mr&Mrs Smith website. It didn't let us down at all. The staff were friendly and courteous. We had "the Master Room", which was sufficiently big enough for a family of four. Lovely high ceilings, beautifully finished bathroom, modern styling...all lived up to the Mr&Mrs Smith review. The only thing to let it down was the bed...quite saggy on one side, and the sofa bed was quite firm. I wouldn't recommend it for an adult. however, both of these were reported to management, so perhaps they were both due for replacement. There was off street parking and it was also a convenient walk to the beach. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and it catered well for the children.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Booked a Master Double for a 3 night stay. We were given Cedar on the 1st floor. First impressions were excellent. The roll top bath was impressive. We were disappointed by the noise from the room above. We could hear the floor boards creeking throughout the night, as occupants obviously were nocturnal! We were then moved to Crab Apple for the remainder of our stay. This room is far larger than Cedar. The feature bathroom is fantastic. The only disappointment was that the kitchen is below and has an outside door, that every time it was used it banged loudly shut. This went on until around 11pm. Oh and the housekeeping store room is directly above, so you get the loud footsteps from above each morning. All this aside, we did enjoy our stay and understand that nowhere is soundproof ha ha. A lovely hotel.

Superb hotel in a very good location. Genuine green, eco credentials. Beautiful rooms, lovely contemporary detailing in an impressive Victorian Villa. The restaurant is truly amazing. The food, wine and service make you believe you're in a Michelin starred restaurant but at very reasonable prices. The other thing I must mention is the staff and the exceptionally high level of service. I can't wait to return.

We've stayed in a lot of places over the years and have not come across a place that pays so much attention to the small details. In our opinion this is what distinguishes a good hotel from a great one. Right from the tasteful subtle decor, friendly attentive staff to the amazing food this place ticked all the boxes! Definitely worth the money and highly recommended

Room Tip: Sweet chestnut on the second floor was very quiet
