We had on overnight stopover last week and attended a gig. We have stayed in Wimborne previously but much preferred the Gordon House to our previous accommodation.
It is an imposing house very close to the centre of town, only a minute from the Town Square. Wimborne is a lovely small town with tasteful shops, plenty of eating venues and lot of pubs. Our visit coincided with the beginning of the Wimborne Folk Festival weekend so the town was gearing up for that event.
Our room at Gordon House was on the top floor and had both a double bed and a single. It had modern decor which my wife considered quite masculine, maybe that's why I liked it. It was very comfortable well equipped and spotlessly clean. We arrived early and were able to check in immediately to enjoy the town. There was ample parking. Breakfast was lovely, traditional English and freshly cooked so piping hot. We have stayed in loads of hotels (& cruise ships) over the past few months and it was such a pleasant change to actually get a properly hot breakfast rather than a kept warm buffet affair.
We thoroughly enjoyed our very short stay and would have loved to have stayed longer but had to depart early.
