I stayed in this hotel for one night in early July 2012 for work purposes and was overall, really satisfied with my stay. The reception staff I came into contact with were absolutely lovely. I stayed in room 14 which for a single traveller was lovely and big (with two beds to choose from!) and immaculately clean. It did face onto the side of the hotel next door and whilst the bathroom is private, a blind would have been great just to screen out the sight of the pigeons who clearly reside between the two buildings. I had a great night's sleep, my bed was lovely and comfortable. The bathroom again was super, super clean and had obviously been renovated. I would however say that the shower isn't a shower. Like many reviewers it's just a shower head connected to the main taps - I'm sorry but no hotel can call itself boutique if it doesn't have proper power showers. That was a real let down and made a quick, early morning pre-conference shower a bit tricky. Secondly, the towels were woefully inadequate - please, please, please provide proper bath towels, the kind you can really wrap around yourself after a bath or shower. The Cottonwood's were tiny and bordering on tea towel size - again boutique, it's all in the detail and decent size towels shouldn't have to be a luxury item. To end on a positive note - showers and towels aside - this was a comfortable, friendly, clean hotel and a nice, bright (note the downstairs decor!!!!) antidote to the rent-a-kit budget hotels which are of a comparable price in Bournemouth.
