“Worth every penny.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2011

Just had a fab 4 day break at the Water Garden. Host & hostess were welcoming & helpful. Location was perfect - short walk to sea front & shops. Public transport on the doorstep. Beautiful garden to enjoy & relax in. Wonderful breakfast menu to set you up for the day.

Just come back from a couple of days at The Water Garden Hotel, Paul and Brenda are lovely and helpful, the dogs Prince and Brandy are friendly big softies. The hotel is very clean, bed was comfortable and our room was nice, it was nicely decorated and breakfast was very tasty, there was a good selection. I would definetly stay there again, it was close to the town centre a ten minute walk.

This place is a gem.

The owners are lovely and considerate the food was nice, and it was like being at home. The rooms were comfortable. It is close to the action, but not too close.

What a lovely, lovely place.

I stayed in the Water Garden Hotel in September as a member of a group of revellers (all 30+) on a stag weekend. The owners were very friendly and accommodating... and surprisingly sympathetic to the stag! I thought the hotel was clean, tastefully decorated with a friendly atmosphere. My single room was small but with a clean and quite powerful shower, and the bed was long enough for this 6-footer to get a good sleep. Breakfast offered a good choice of cereals and juices, and the full english arrived promptly. I would have liked to see some fried bread and maybe black pudding in my full english, but no complaints considering that the price per night was around £30. I think this is excellent value considering the centre of Bournemouth or beach is only a 10 minute walk away. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for two nights but were a little disappointed. On the plus side the décor is excellent, the rooms very clean and the staff and owners are friendly and welcoming.

On the downside our room was compact with a tiny ensuite which was only the width of a shower tray and the breakfast was minimalistic to say the least, made with ‘economy’ ingredients.

Our biggest disappointment was that the family’s dogs are given free roam of the downstairs and not being dog owners meant we could smell them as soon as we came in. While we are not afraid of dogs we took exception to them sniffing around and pushing into us wanting attention (they are big dogs!).

Dog owners will love the place but if you are not keen think before booking.
