My partner and I stayed at this hotel one night for B&B. When I arrived outside the hotel I could not believe I was at the right hotel as judging from their web site photo I was expecting a free standing pink house. Now I know better; the hotel is opposite a boule green right by the main street leading over a small bridge, so the day time trafic noice is quite loud in rooms facing the street. And what makes it even worse is, that there is a trafic light controlling the single lane bridge trafic. With lorries and busses standing sometimes quite long for lred lights we were quite distrubed. The rooms facing the yard are to be recommeded for those preferring quiet rooms.
We had a large room, which was recently refurbished to high standards. The beds and linen were very good as well. The hotel is very well located in the midle of Christchurch with wievs to the priory and the old castle ruins. The town is absolutely adorable for long walks along the shores.
