My wife and I had a midweek break from 30th April. On entering the hotel we felt immediately relaxed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the views from the conservatory were quite spectacular. We were allocated room 203, on the second floor where we had the same view across the bay. The room was large, very clean, as was everywhere else in the hotel, and had a high ceiling. An absolute bonus was that the lighting was actually bright enough to read by, unlike many other hotels. The garden is beautifully maintained with benches facing out to sea and at the side a path leads to steps that take you down to the beach where small cafes are found. From here it is a short walk down to the town. The bus stops, a short walk away, offering trips to Corfe Castle and Wareham in one direction and to Bournemouth via the ferry in the other. We were lucky enough to have two days of sunshine during our stay and the staff put out sun beds and parasols. It was just like being in Spain! The weather was so good that we didn't get to use the pool or the gym, but we did have a game of table tennis You can get to the room straight from the garden. Breakfast and service were good and we appreciated the white table cloths and the use of tea pots and cups, no mugs. We didn't eat in the hotel in the evening but one night went to the local pub at the end of the road. This is called the Crows Nest, which we would thoroughly recommend. Overall we had two lovely days and really enjoyed our break. Thanks to Lindsay and her team.
