“Good view”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

The Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa is nicely located by the harbour, it has been recently decorated in a tasteful manner. We had a good sized room, without AC, but there was a fan. The spa was reasonable, and the treatment was not too bad. Service was a little slow at reception. All in all, think we will go for a B&B next time.

We only intended to look at the hotel, as family members had previously stayed here but, ended up spending the night. The room on the 4th floor was small, but nicely furnished -lovely bathroom but agree with some comments that the light level is a bit dim! Great outlook from the room with partial water view. Free use of fantastic pool along with jacuzzi, steam ,sauna and salt rooms. In room access to free wi-fi was no problem.In the evening we ate in the Jetty restaurant. Breakfast service was good - hot food cooked to order. Would thoroughly recommend and we would happily stay here again - hopefully soon.

Came here on a "groupon" voucher for a champagne afternoon tea for two. Booking was easy, we were made to feel welcome and shown to a lovely outside table with views overlooking the harbour. The afternoon tea was delicious - nice sandwiches, yummy little cakes and scones to die for - all washed down with a glass of bubbly and a pot of tea. Sometimes on these "groupon" vouchers you can get less of a "standard" as their profit margin is so much less, but not in this case. It was a lovely birthday treat for my Mum and in this case the voucher worked as I will definately be going back for lunch/dinner!

An excellent short break courtesy of Times+ reduced price offer with 2 nights B&B at £175 (but not sea view room). The Jetty restaurant is delightfulas is the setting. I'd stay here again but would be deterred by listed prices. As often is the case British hotels overcharge compared to comparable hotels oon mainland Europe.

I booked this hotel to be close to the place I was working while in Christchurch and was not sure what it would be like, however I was plesantly surprised.
The reception is quite informal yet the duty manager was very efficient and my room was allocated to me in a matter of minutes - parking was available just outside the door and I was advised that if there was no room for my car when I came back from town I could leave the keys with them and they would look after it for me.
The room was quite spacious and the bathroom well appointed with quality soap and shampoo.
The dinning room was a quality resteraunt (and not cheap). The food was of very high quality and well worth what I paid for it - if you dont want to spend the £35 per person for a 3 course meal there is always the pub just down the road.
The view from the balcony outside the resteraunt is great. It looks over the waterway and has swans swiming up to the dock - sunset across to the houses on the other side is truely beautiful.
All up it was a great place to stay and if you want to access the spa facilities these dont seem to be too badly priced (I did not use them so canot coment on the quality, however from the outside it looked a pretty professional spa facility)
The only hassle I had was that the internet access had some issues, however the duty manager let me use a spare computer in the reception area so no problem there.
The staff were all great and went out of their way to provide a good service

The location is great; room clean and comfortable (didn't watch it but tv seemed small for size of room); spa and pool lovely; reception staff in hotel and spa were friendly, polite and helpful; food was acceptable but have had much better, especially for vegetarians.

And then we come to the service - this was extremely disappointing, particularly for breakfasts. Staff seemed to be on auto pilot with no real enthusiasm for what they were doing. Nobody seemed to be properly in charge and taking control. We noticed several people as well as ourselves having to wait a very long time for tea and coffee orders and even longer for cooked breakfast. My partner had to chase his up after about 25 minutes and when it eventually arrived it was tepid so had obviously been left on a counter somewhere. The tables are also very closely packed which made the restaurant feel more cafeteria than 4 star hotel. If the service issue is addressed this could be a very pleasant hotel but based on this experience there are much better hotels available throughout the south west for the same money.
