Reviewed 1 February 2013

We stayed here for one night last week after visiting the accountant in Wimborne. I found Les on T.A. and was attracted by the menu so decided to book a night's stay to celebrate husband's retirement.
The staff were welcoming - it was a vile day- and showed us to our room, Nixon, which, although small, was very comfortable. We were offered fresh milk to make tea and coffee which was appreciated.
We had a chat with Kate and a drink in the bar before dinner, and perused the very nice menu.
The chef was very accommodating as I have a specific food allergy. The meal was lovely - we both had the pork with tiny bits of black pudding (I never knew it could taste like that!) There were nice canapes, (amuse bouches), sorbet and other delicious free offerings.
After dinner, having said Good Night, we then had a problem with the plumbing (not our fault!!) but it was fixed quickly and good humouredly by Jeremy.
As has been said by other reviewers, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the linens and towels were luxurious.

Thank you for a lovely stay and we will be happy to recommend you to all our friends.

Room Tip: My husband saw the next door room, Krasnarsky? which was bigger and very nice. Nixon was nice, but...

Dear Visitor

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, we are very appreciative of guests who have had a happy and comfortable stay and respond positively via TripAdvisor.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and professional customer service and are happy to hear that the owner Kate made your stay that extra special and personal. We also thank you for bringing the plumbing issue to the attention of our staff, and are glad that you felt it was dealt with efficiently and humorously.

In relation to your Bedroom Tip, the Room next to the one that you were staying in was in fact one of our Executive Rooms called The Rut, which is the next level from the Standard Rooms. It would explain that there was more space, with a larger bathroom. Perhaps if you stay with us again this Room would be more preferable.

Kind Regards
Les Bouviers Restaurant with Rooms

Most comfortable room in very quiet surroundings. Well cooked English breakfast was extra but very good while continental breakfast, which was included, was excellent with fresh fruit and lots of choices. In particular the bed was so comfortable I have now purchased one for my home. Fresh milk was provided for the room along with tea and a choice of coffee.
The bathroom was large and very clean though a razor point was not available.
We did not eat in the restaurant but it appeared to have an interesting and extensive menu.

Everyone was most helpful and pleasant and made us feel welcome.

Dear Visitor

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience

It is so warming when our customers write such a personal and specific review, especially in these cold Winter months. We do pride ourselves in going that extra bit further for our customers, as you have noted the breakfast selections and the Vi-Sprung mattresses, so it is always a real boost when customers notice these special touches
The bathroom in the room that you stayed in, our Superior called 'Benfield', has a double aspect sloping roof, which restricts us, for legal reasons, to attach an electrical point. However there is one that is moveable in the actual bedroom which you should of been advised of whilst being checked in. So for that we do apologise
Finally we are very pleased that you felt welcome, we do strive to make all customers feel almost as if they were at their home from home. We would love to welcome you again, and have the chance dine you in our 2AA Rosette Restaurant

All the best for the New Year

Kind Regards
James & Kate
The Patrons

Went for a meal to celebrate our son's engagement and were very impressed. The food, the service and the attention to detail exceeded all our expectations - the food delicious and well presented, the service attentive but discreet, and the welcome second to none. We would have no hesitation in recommending Les Bouviers to any of our friends.

Room was great and service was excellent and efficient. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and great care was made to ensure everything was perfect for us. This makes a refreshing change from the faceless chain hotels.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in Nov. 2012.
The location is excellent. On the outskirts of Wimborne and close to Poole & Bournemouth.
Situated in parkland with lovely walks.
Staff were friendly and very helpful - fresh milk in the bedroom for our tea.
Lovely bath robes and slippers.
We were in the Nixon Suite, lovely and clean, shower has a steam facility.
We were visiting friends in the area and did not eat in the restaurant.
However, we did have dinner in the Bistro that the owners of Les Bouviers run, (approx 2 miles away). Excellent meal with first class service.
The only minor complaint would be that the temperature of the water in the shower did vary.
Great to see a young couple with a family working so hard to create a place to be proud of.

At a loose end whilst my daughter took an entrance exam at a nearby boarding school, I Michelin Apped my way here. £20 for a cracking chicken liver parfait and well judged lambs kidneys, decent cheese, lovely people. Ok, it ain't Le Manoir but come on guys!!?? It is a place that reflects its owners love of food and people , and is well worth a visit. Thank you for making a good day better Les Bouviers.
