“Anniversary break”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Booked a two night break to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Arrived early but check in not a problem. Had a Junior Suite which was spacious and comfortable. Lovely terrace area overlooking the river. Fab restaurant with lovely touch of providing a platter of sweets with " Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate ! Overall a very happy experience which I would thoroughly recommend.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

A lovely modern hotel, with a beautiful view, but not a sea view. The only reason not a full set of fives. However, it's right on the side of the river and is gorgeous. The sailing boats etc are moored to the left and the rowing club members go up and down the river. Staff very attentive and a great few days break.

Great service at the bar and fabulous location next to the river plus an excellent restaurant makes the Captains Club one of the upmarket drinking and dining spots in the Christchurch area.
Sit and watch the boats go by or get the ferry out front for a trip up the river.

When visiting Christchurch we took our hosts here for an evening meal on their suggestion of venue then still untried. All I can say is the service was quite the WORST we have ever experienced - slow slow slow and the giggly waitress said nothing to be done as we have a big party in another room. Well charming. No-one was really bothered about the bad service ( ' we are aware of it ..') and when the food did eventually arrive all I can say is that it was not worth the long and tedious wait. No I do not recommend this establishment at all. It thinks it is better than it really is. Never again.

I arrived with a degree of trepidation, having read some conflicting reviews, had a couple of bad experiences elsewhere, and after parking outside what seemed a motel style reception area wondered whether I'd made another mistake. Nope. The first good sign came just after I told the receptionist my name, and the gentleman sitting next to her looked up and said "Would you like me to take your luggage out of the car for you sir?" Would I ever! Yes please. From that moment on everything went perfectly. Check in smooth, bags (all six of them, as this was just one stop on a five week Europe tour, so we had to combine business, entertaining and casual gear) delivered to our room, all the bits and pieces explained, and genuine surprise when I offered a tip.
I'd taken advantage of the hotel's offer of a two bedroom suite overlooking the river and was very pleased that I had. The suite was more an apartment: a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, desk and workspace, plenty of power points, nice lounge, two bathrooms and the lounge area and bedroom each with a fantastic view of the boats and swans sharing the river.
We could have made dinner ourselves and stayed in the room but I'd already booked a table in the restaurant and we made our way through a lounge/bar area into a large, well fitted dining room, again with picture windows overlooking the river. Lacking confidence in English cuisine (which I've described elsewhere as an oxymoron) I ordered a steak and P Seabass, and to our surprise and delight neither was a disappointment, so much so that we had no hesitation in fronting up again the next night. Breakfast was cold buffet and hot a la carte and again first rate.
This really is an outstanding property and I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.

Room Tip: Make sure you get one with a view over the river. If you wish to self cater, go for a suite.

We stayed at this hotel back in April for 2 nights we didn't use the spa. The hotel is in a very nice spot on the waterside. The food is excellent and the room was clean and comfortable. There are various riverside walks and the town centre is just a short walk away. There are other quality restaurants in the locality.

Room Tip: Follow the satnav to the adjacent close by the hotel as Wick Lane is both sides of the river.

It was a while back my partner and I ate here. We thoroughly enjoyed it, the waiter who took care of us gave fantastic service combined with great product knowledge, unfortunatly we can't remember his name but he had helped our choices and was very observent without being intrusive. The food also was fantastic, with good portion sizes, we were very full after the mains but managed to share a dessert which looked very professional and picturesque and tasted fantastic also! Would recommend!
