We stayed the weekend in this hotel. The room was large and the bathroom was newly refurbished. Everything was clean. The large bed was very comfortable. The hotel was quiet. The full English breakfast was very tasty. The owners were very friendly. We would definitely stay here again. The sat nav directs you to the back of the hotel but...

The brilliant breakfast was the highlight for me - especially good having my favourite newspaper waiting everyday. Overall, the place is very well run, I loved the attention to detail; smart white linen on the dining tables; the bedroom was very comfortable; fresh clean linen.

This is a medium-size family run hotel not far from the town centre. It has ample free parking and it shouldn't take more than 15 to walk to the pier. Rooms are a good size and free wi-fi is provided throughout. Of particular interest is the guest lounge, with its original features and paintings, a selection of board games for...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you enjoyed the book collection. We are lucky to have the lounge for guests to enjoy and we also have seating in the garden during the summer. This year we won Gold in "Bournemouth in Bloom" which we are very proud of.

The generous breakfast was not the only attraction of this medium sized family run hotel, but it was one of the things that impressed us. Fresh and dried fruit are served daily in their spacious dining area overlooking the garden, with local sausages one of the attractions of the cooked breakfast. Such were the portions, I had to ask for...

Just returned from a short stay at this excellent hotel . The welcome was warm and so was the room. Beautifully decorated and furnished room with a lovely new shower . The breakfast was lovely and the humour of the host was appreciated. We would certainly return.

Last minute booking for 1 night. Saw the reviews beforehand which on the whole were favourable. On arrival we were greeted by the owner and she was extremely friendly. Our room was room 8 and was perfect. It was beautifully furnished and a really good size. It is such a delight to have a room with real character. The bathroom...

The Winter Dene hotel is a beautiful building in a great location. Upon arrival I was offered a larger room as it was out of season and I was travelling alone which was great. Although I had the free upgrade there were a number of stairs to climb as I found myself on the top floor. The room was spacious...

We didn't feel very welcomed by the male host. We arrived at 17:00 to check in. We presented to the front door to ring the door bell. A man appeared from the rear of the house to met us on the steps. He didn't greet himself, he asked what I wanted in a irritated tone of voice. I advised I...
