Very comfortable contempory hotel
Posted May 9, 2015
We booked this hotel to act as a base for touring the Dorset and East Devon coast. The property is set back from the road, close to a sporting complex and commands panoramic views over the Dorset Downs. The appearance of the car park and approach does not make a great first impression and looks more like a truck stop than and car park. However, don't be put off as the rest of the hotel is much better.
Once inside, the hotel is quite exclusive with only just over 30 rooms and is in the contempory style with a light and airy feel to public areas and rooms. Our party reserved two double rooms and both were of a good size, warm, comfortable and finished to a very high standard. Sound insulation was also very good and virtually no noise as detectable from other rooms.
The location is quite isolated so you will either need to plan for dining before arrival or opt for eating in the hotel restaurant. The food on offer is good, though the menu is a little limited. Breakfast for us was a standard hot and cold buffet with options for specific requests if required.
On the whole a very good find and we would definitely stay again
