  • Relax by the pool or on the sun terrace with views over the grounds and sea
  • Explore the Dorset coast and New Forest for fabulous countryside scenery

Stay right on the seafront in the beautiful area of Westcliff just a short walk from the beach with an onsite refreshing swimming pool and scenic sun terrace to unwind after a busy day by the sea.

From here, the walk along the seafront is stunning, with golden beaches leading to one of the most fashionable areas of the entire country, the community of Sandbanks. Here you will find fantastic bars and restaurants which is also the case just 5 or ten minutes away from the hotel on the other side in central Bournemouth.

For lovers of the outdoors, staying in Bournemouth really gives you everything, especially for those who are willing to venture a little way out of the town. A number of beautiful areas are available just a short distance away by both car and public transport; these include Cranbourne Chase, the Jurassic Coast and the New Forest among many others.

Inside our pretty Edwardian Hotel and its grounds you can enjoy a game of Croquet on wide lawns, relax on the sun terrace or chill out in the pool. In the restaurant you can enjoy fantastic and varied menus daily for breakfast and evening meals and snacks and drinks are served throughout the day on the sun terrace.
