When we originally stayed at the Luminiere a couple of years ago it was fantastic, the gentleman that ran it was brilliant and the breakfast was lovely. When we returned we found that he was no longer employed there and the owner had moved into the dining area, so there were no longer facilities for breakfast, disappointing but not essential....

Having read the posted reviews about this B&B, the (lack of) customer service we received is even more disappointing. My partner and I booked a room as part of a deal for two nights. My partner rang the hotel twice to confirm our room and booking, we then received an email saying the booking was cancelled. When I looked online,...

Had a super stay, nothing was too much trouble, rooms lovely, clean, quiet. Breakfast well worth booking, you have table and chairs in your room, wide selection of things to choose from and was lovely to be able to have in room rather than have to dress for breakfast. Strongly recommend.

First the very good points - excellent hosts who were pleasant, friendly and welcoming. The 'Shabby Chiq' (previously the double garage) was spacious and clean, and the King Size bed very comfortable. Nice towels and soaps etc. Bathroom had excellent double power shower but see below. Good location for Sandbanks and surrounding area. Lots of information available and hosts offered...

The missus and I stayed here for three nights in October. The owners were both friendly and helpful. The room (we stayed in the Romeo & Juliet room - it WAS our anniversary!) was beautifully decorated, roomy, very clean, excellent condition and is probably the prettiest I've ever slept in. All the rooms are unique, and they feel quite special;...

Our stay at Luminiere was amazing. It is breathtakingly stylish yet comfortable, homely and clean. We were made so welcome, even though we arrived a little late on the first night, and Tracey and Geoff were very accommodating and lovely people. We were given the Romeo and Juliet room - all the rooms are different and very beautifully decorated and...

I would not recommend this at all. We were charged £99 per night, and breakfast was an extra £10 per day, unusual for a BnB but we decided to have the breakfast anyway...bad decision as breakfast was average, served to the room and comprised of juice, cheese, jam, 2 heated buns, an apple, banana and 2 alpeen muesli bars. Ridiculous,...
