“A well needed rest”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We'd booked this weekend away several weeks ago, prefering to miss the busy Bank Holiday weekend, little realising that it was the Air Show! This was an added bonus because Chalfield Manor is a hidden gem!
With only 7 bedrooms (Otilia's doing apparently) the hotel is small enough to offer the most amazing personal service. Dexter is very hands on, running reception, the bar, watering the garden, offering advice, whereas Otilia takes her responsibility on the housekeeping side very seriously. The small but perfectly formed staff were attentive without being intrusive, polite and the highlight of my stay was hearing the laughter as they worked.
Bedroom 6 was plenty big enough for us, with a wonderful rainfall shower, very comfortable bed and kept in immaculate order by Cheryl and her team.
Breakfast was topped up regularly and I can highly recommend the coffee, served in an individual cafetiere.
I took advantage of the massage service and can highly recommend that too!
Drinks in the bar are very reasonably priced and Dexter could charm the birds from the trees! It was really interesting to hear how the hotel developed from a derelict building in the the gorgeous Arts and Crafts building it is now.
All in all, a wonderful break and we will return.

We had an excellent stay as a family of 4 in this very elegant hotel. The hotel has been tastefully renovated to a vey high standard. We stayed in the huge family room. The rooms are luxurious and the owners have put a lot of attention to detail.

Breakfast was excellent and catered to your requirements.

The hotel location is great. Is 5 mins from beach.

If after a relaxing quiet stay in luxury surroundings this is for you.

We booked Chalfield Manor as a last minute booking. The hotel itself is a wonderfully restored manor house with just 7 bedrooms. Once we arrived we were greeted by Dexter and Otilia who checked us in and showed us to our room. The house itself has been finished to a very high standard. Our double room had everything that you could want, a large overhead shower, very comfortable king size bed, complimentary tea, coffee and water. The towels in the bathroom were so thick and soft, I have never felt such wonderful ones. There was plenty of hanging space, place for your suitcase and drawers. Breakfast was a choice of hot meals (full English and other hot dishes), the cold buffet (cereals, fruit, yogurt, cakes) , toast and juices. The breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day. Our hosts were on hand to chat to at the end of our evening and also to serve us drinks in the bar area. There is also a library with games and a treatment room for facials etc . Will recommending this hotel and hope you have the chance to taste what this hotel has to offer.

We stayed here on July 19th for 3 nights. It really is a lovely boutique hotel, run by a lovely couple, Dexter & Otilia. From the moment we arrived in the car park ( Dexter came out to greet us), we felt as if we were family & had known them for ages! This continued throughout our entire stay & was one of the many things that made our stay so special.

The hotel has recently undergone a major renovation and is beautifully decorated in a contemporary style whilst still retaining lots of original architecture & beautiful features from its Vitorian era.

The bedroom we stayed in was lovely, comfortable bed with lovely crisp white bedding. The bathroom was full of gorgeous white large fluffy towels, with an especially generous bath towel! The fabulous walk in shower completed the feeling of luxury.

We were treated to a lovely home cooked breakfast every morning which set us up for the day.

When we returned each afternoon we had a drink in the bar & spent time chatting to Dexter & Otilia.

A really fabulous hotel which to me really reflects the warmth of the two lovely people that run it & reflects it back to create a very special hotel.

We will return!

Thank you for a great few days!

Our stay at the Chalfield Manor was part of our annivesary present and what a present it was. The hotel is stunning renovated to the highest standards, the attention to detail is second to none. The moment we arrived Dexter and Otilia greeted us as if we were life long friends. They were so helpful advising on resturants and places of interest. The rooms are luxurious with no expense spared with the linen and bath towels all of the highest quailty. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful. We have stayed in many hotels this year and this was by far the best.If you are looking to visit the Bournemouth area look no further than the Chalfield Manor Boutique Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are of the highest standard

From the very second we stepped out of our car, Dexter and his wife made us feel more like family than paying guests. They could not have been more welcoming, courteous and friendly. The hotel is breathtaking in its elegance, one of our party described it as "the highest level of excellence". The rooms were extremely well decorated and tastefully furnished, as was the hotel throughout. Breakfast was wonderful and you could have asked for absolutely anything and they would oblige.

We cannot wait to return to visit Dexter and Otilia and would advise any visitor to Bournemouth to HURRY AND BOOK and pray that they have vacancies. We would never even think about looking elsewhere after this wonderful weekend visit.

Room Tip: Any room would be a pleasure to stay in as all are decorated to the same high standard and the peace...
