“Beautiful, clean and comfortable and ecological”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

A last minute business trip brought me here after my usual Premier Inn was booked up.
So glad I found the Green House. For not much more I got a large comfortable, beautiful room.
The room came with still and sparkling water in large bottles, tea and coffee and biscuits.
The bed was large and comfortable and as the weather is scorching you are also presented with a sheet if the duvet is too much. Blinds also keep the room cool.
Breakfast in the restaurant is a great selection of pastries, fruit and cereal followed by the usual array of cooked breakfast, omelettes, and porridge and for an additional fee a champagne breakfast....shame I was working.
Also has a lovely bar with great friendly reception and staff.

Stayed July 2014

I stay in this hotel regularly and always look forward to going back.

The rooms are superb, albeit a little strange with the bath tub plonked in the middle of some rooms. Every room has a difference to the other which is nice. The beds are quite soft, not for everyone but I like that.

The food is good, however I'd like to see a better breakfast with wider variety.

It's about a 15 minute walk from the centre of town which is ideal and has free parking outside which is adequate considering how many rooms the hotel has.

To be pedantic it would benefit them to install a lift, those stairs are a trek when carrying bags to the top floor.

All in all it's a great hotel, I'll always go back.

Buckets and spade available from the reception area are a nice touch!

My wife and I have stayed here many times over the last 4 years whilst our daughter has been at university and we have one more night booked later in the year for her graduation. Whilst it is great to stay in a hotel which is not part of a chain and that tries to be a little bit different it would also be nice if their systems were sophisticated enough to pick up returning guests. There is no sense of being made to feel as if you are anything other than just another faceless guest through the door. When we first stayed it was a really good hotel that was very welcoming - now it is just a hotel that could do with a bit of a freshening up. It is certainly good enough for us to stay one more time but not enough to make me feel like I will miss not going back.

In terms of location etc within Bournemouth it is still spot on - after all, that is something that cannot change!.

A pleasant experience all round, with comfortable rooms, friendly staff and tasty bar snacks for an afternoon of playing backgammon to avoid the rain. The breakfast was pleasant too, but the dinner restaurant was very expensive. I would return.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and were beautifully looked after, lovely staff, very comfy room and well equipped. Would very happily stay again. All the hotel rooms are named after trees which reflects the eco-ethos beautifully. Thank you

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor at the side of the hotel

Green Features: Very well executed and without stinting on comfort.

We recently stayed five nights and was very impressed with the quality of accommodation. We stayed in a large double room which was a large room with clawfoot bath in the main room as well as a large shower in the ensuite. Service was good as were facilities with bar and restaurant. The only slight criticism is the lack of variety of bread rolls at breakfast and the variable size of the cooked breakfast. Parking available on site for those with a car.

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a large room with bathtub.
