The hotel was originally a family home with servants quarters which was converted to a hotel in the 1930's. We are fortunate enough to have a copy of a brochure produced in 1942 which has some interesting aspects. En-suite bathrooms were added both in the 70's and 80's to enhance the facilities for guests. The hotel is constantly being upgraded to improve the overall standard of the hotel. We like to think of all our customers as special guests that come and stay year in year out.

Bournemouth provides the ideal base for your holiday. Golden sands sweep across the sheltered Poole bay providing clean and safe bathing, with a myriad of facilities and amenities. Bournemouth has so much to offer, why not explore and enjoy. To the west lies the Isle of Purbeck, so named because the area is surrounded by water. Much favoured by the smugglers of old, the small bays and sheltered inlets are steeped in local folklore and are ideal for exploring. See visit Dorset for more details.

Eastwards the New Forest beckons, protected by the Crown this huge National Park is home to wild New Forest Ponies and many a lazy day can be spent watching cricket on the village greens or joining the locals in a game of dominoes in the many country pubs.
