“Very pleasant nights stay”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I booked a one night stay at this hotel through a company called Mr and Mrs Smith. On arrival we parked right outside the front and were delighted with the decor and reception we received. We were shown to our room Holm Oak, on the second floor and given a flask of milk as there are no fridges in the rooms. The room was beautifully decorated, modern with nice touches- homemade shortbread biscuits. The bathroom was great, lovely big shower. We enjoyed a complimentary glass of champagne each in the comfy bar and chose to go out locally for dinner. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice. The wifi is easily picked up but did seem to be very slow to download pages. Overall we enjoyed our short stay here and would recommend!

What an amazing find this hotel was. Situated in the town centre we're weren't hoping for too much, but this place absolutely exceeded expectations. The staff and level of service were fabulous - Any questions were always met with a smile. Rooms are well decorated, clean and modern. The house restaurant is the hidden gem - beautiful looking and tasting food..and the cheese board...wow! Oh i forgot to mention the freshly baked scones for cream tea.. :)
There's loads to do in the area and a trip to Swanage is recommended. Hoping to find time to return one day soon...

My partner and I stayed here for two nights recently for the wedding of two good friends.

The hotel is set in a leafy lane a few minutes' walk from the town centre and sea front. There is ample parking space and the reception was warm and friendly.

Our room (all the rooms are named after trees- ours was Silver Birch) was warmly decorated, with ample storage space and a magnificent bathroom. The walk-in shower was gorgeous, while the Victorian roll-top bath was deep and comfortable.

Room service was swift and the food of a high standard, as was the case at the wedding breakfast. The bar and restaurant were both comfortable and well designed; service was also very good at both venues.

We will definitely return next year, once the weather improves and we have more time to explore the town. Everything was a bit rushed on account of the wedding, but the next time we visit Bournemouth we will certainly make The Green House our base.

I applaud the owners for their design and style of the hotel. They try to adhere to Eco friendly standards and all the rooms are named after different trees which I found to be a nice touch. The rooms are well appointed and the ceilings are enormous; even in the single standard rooms.

The bathroom had a beautiful glass shower and the toiletries were came from Temple Spa.

I paid 99 pounds for the evening (including breakfast) and found it to be good value.

I ate in their fine dining restaurant as well. I found the dishes to be pleasant but short of tasty. Their warm rice pudding however is sublime.

Parking is free as is internet but the wifi coverage is extremely poor in certain areas. Staff did try to help me with the problem by providing Ethernet cables but I didn't much have luck with that either.

I would return to the hotel if I was passing through the region.

A lovely hotel in a superb central location, a short walk to the town centre and main attractions. The staff were kind, welcoming and friendly and the room was beautiful although a little small for a longer stay.
the food was delicious and at quality standard.

We would highly recommend this hotel and would love a return visit.
after staying in some so called quality hotels in Bournemouth, this one knocks them for six, just wish we had found it earlier.

We spent 2 nights here on a rare weekend without the children. The food was very good and I'd recommend eating at the hotel. The location is about a 2-3 minute walk from the cliffs and about 15-20 minute stroll into the town.

We paid extra for a Master room - and it was nice. It had a bath in the bedroom which I always find a little odd but it was very spacious. The public rooms felt cold (they weren't physically cold, just didn't feel cosy) and, by virtue of having G&T (once) on two nights I drank them out of two types of gin, which was slightly unusual!

I liked that all water was tap water, filtered and then bottled. Whilst this was part of their green credentials, to me it meant that there was always free bottled water, which I liked. The staff were excellent too.

I've only given it 4 rather than 5 because of the non-homely feel about it. However, don't let me put you off! The food was truly great and it is a nice hotel. Just not quite worth a 5!
