A delightful bed and breakfast just off Winton High Street near Bournemouth; beautifully furnished bedroom, a fantastic breakfast in Valerie's beautiful kitchen/diner, with lots of fresh fruit, tastefully presented and served by Valerie who is a delightful host, keen to please her guests; for dinner, there is a beautiful Italian restaurant within a couple of minutes walking distance on the High Street; we are certainly planning to stay here again;

My wife and I were attracted to this B&B in Bournemouth by the favourable comments on Tripadvisor. We stayed for three nights in early September. 2012. Those comments were all true. We really enjoyed our stay and can recommend others to stay here if they are visiting Bournemouth and the area.

We stayed at Smithfield Place last weekend and can't rate it highly enough. Everything had been thought of by our friendly host Valerie, who made us a cup of tea on our arrival - the home made fishcakes and smoked salmon made for a lovely breakfast and all of the food in our room was astounding - fresh fruit, Kettle chips, packets of biscuits, boxes of different fruit teas, wine (which was replenished after we drank 2 of the small bottles on the first evening) and Ferrero Rocher on our bedside table. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in the Bournemouth area and I'm sure we'll return when we're next in the area.

Thank You Valerie for an amazing stay at your Bed & Breakfast. We have stayed at 5 star hotels world wide and found this Bed & Breakfast far outweighed most, if not all, of them. The accommodation was extremely clean and well presented. The bed was super comfortable and the bedding of Egyptian cotton was beautifully clean and fresh. In the room were an array of goodies, including both red and white wine, all manner of teas, coffees and other hot drinks, fresh milk, water (both still and sparkling), sweets, crisps, chocolates and a lovely bowl of fresh fruit. The bathroom was again spotlessly clean and well stocked with everything you would have at home, from different types of bath and shower gels, shampoo, conditioner, cotton buds, face wipes, bath puffs, an array of flannels and all different sizes of towels. Needless to say everything was beautifully clean. There was even a sitting room complete with Sky television if you wanted to use it. The food was wonderful, varied and extremely plentiful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. From the moment she welcomed us into her charming cottage to the moment we hugged Goodbye we felt like we had know her forever such was the warmth and generosity of our host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this amazing Bed & Breakfast and will definitely return. Thank You again Valerie! THIS IS A BED & BREAKFAST WHICH WE WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL TO ANYBODY LOOKING TO STAY IN OR AROUND THE BOURNEMOUTH AREA.

What a Gem of a B & B! Fantastic location, elegant decor, comfortable and kind hospitality. Valerie made us both feel instantly welcome and we felt very relaxed in her home. Her attention to detail was amazing and we would reccomend this charming and immaculate B & B. Fantastic choice and delicious breakfast. Looking forward to visiting again. D & E x

This is better than a 5 star boutique hotel.Valerie Johns is a complete natural.Nothing is too much trouble and she obviously really enjoys looking after people. Her beautiful home offers everything that you could wish for and more. We had a stylish and cosy bedroom stocked to the hilt with all manner of goodies including fresh fruit,chocolates,wine and a huge selection of beveridges(and fresh milk instead of those horrid little cartons of long life!) Spotless modern bathroom with a bath as well as a walkin power shower.We had exclusive use of a lovely sitting room if we had wanted it.We were so comfy in our room so didn,t make use of it.Breakfast was as good as anything we have ever had (And we have stayed in some of the best) We had Kedgeree on the first morning which was delicious and made with fresh undyed smoked haddock. An array of fresh fruits including,mangoes,papaya,blueberries and fruit salad were on offer along with,croissants,pain au chocolat and proper toast and a selection of preserves. Breakfast is taken in Valeries lovely big kitchen where we sat chatting to her for so long that half the morning had gone before we went out! Oh...and also...Valerie is happy to serve breakfast as late as 10 am for those who enjoy sleeping in!
My husband and I have run our own award winning restaurants with rooms and tend to be pretty critical when we go away.This place is faultless and deserves the highest accolades.We certainly hope to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Smithfield Place is the perfect place to base yourself whilst exploring the stunning Dorset countryside, whether you wish to relax on the 7 miles of golden beaches, ramble along the breathtaking Jurassic coastline or take a more scenic approach visiting the quaint rural villages, castles and cathedrals. This delightful Victorian cottage, extended in the 1980s and fully refurbished, offers accommodation of a double bedroom with a king sized bed and a newly fitted private bathroom complete with a walk in shower and bath. A smaller double room is also available, but only to the same guests, thus retaining the private and quiet environment we wish to provide. The bedroom is finished beautifully, mixing antiques and modern furniture and has tea and coffee making facilities (including fresh milk!) with complimentary nibbles, free Wifi, a plasma TV with freeview, hairdryer and a clock/radio alarm. There is also a private sitting room for guests to use complete with Skt TV, and if it's a little chilly outside we will even light the fire for you. And of course, being a bed and breakfast, after a good night's sleep you'll be expecting a good morning's breakfast. So, what better way to start the day than on a hearty full English breakfast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or even delicious homemade salmon fish cakes served with poached eggs, accompanied with fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts and fresh breads. We will always try and accommodate any choices and in particular any dietary requirements so please just ask if you need anything special. We try our best to provide locally grown and organic products. ... more   less
