We stayed one night as part of a wedding party. The wedding reception at the hotel was wonderful. The formal dinner was fantastic with tasty food and fairly large portions. The evening buffet was equally good, again with a good selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. Wine was included with the formal dinner but extra drinks were a little on the pricy side.

The room was of a high quality although you can hear other doors slam and the bathroom of the room next door. Saying that it was a nice place to stay. The bride and groom really enjoyed their selves.

Had a lovely 1 night stay here. Very comfortable clean room. Breakfast was excellent with full waitress service. Staff are very helpful and informative without being intrusive. Lovely location close to Highcliffe Castle, the beach and beautiful coastal walks. Will be returning at some point and hope to try the restaurant for dinner.

We were met on arrival by a very friendly, helpful lady. We were allocated The Lord Bute suite, which was comfortable, splendidly furnished and superbly equipped. Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff. The Hotel & grounds are beautifully maintained & stunning in design. Breakfast was amongst the best I've ever had in an hotel anywhere (and that includes The Ritz)!

Just one small tip...If you happen to be a headache sufferer like me, take your own soft pillows with you as I found those provided too firm for my needs.

A request for a quiet room was ignored and our badly fitting door banged every time a customer came in. On the particular night we thought that Tom Jones was in the bathroom. It was an event in the dining room that kept us up until 11:30. The management did not take any responsibility for the event. A good room if there were no events.
A good hotel spoiled by greed and poor management.

Room Tip: Check if a wedding or event is taking place before you commit.

One nights stay, just not long enough! Excellent accommodation excellent food in nice and clean air conditioned room. Breakfast the best we've ever eaten, cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. The staff very efficient and friendly. We will be back as soon as possible.

Room Tip: We booked the last available room and were warned that as it was at the front of the hotel we may he...

This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in, I have stayed here twice, once in the garden suit with my partner which I have to say was just perfection! The staff couldn't have been anymore helpful, really relaxed while very professional and friendly. I didn't want to leave the garden suit is heaven! Second time we stayed in the hotel and the room was lovely very clean, and the bed was sooooo comfy.... Again we didn't want to leave! Food was delicious and staff were again great. Me and my partner would definately recommend this to anyone. We are looking to book for the midweek jazz night soon. Thank you all for your help, Nikita :) xx
