    Welcoming and comfortable in a stunning location.
    We spent a lovely January weekend at this hotel. It was cosy and inviting with a lovely roaring fire on arrival. The view from our room was amazing and it was very comfortable. The staff are also very welcoming and friendly and the breakfast was excellent. Would love to return.

    Great family hotel
    Lovely family environment made it a relaxing stay. Good breakfast and really good evening meal with awesome choice of deserts. The hotel retains its 70’s charm - in a good way. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Location couldn’t be better for Studland Beach.
    Phil, gb1 night trip
    Fair 4.0
    Service in particular from restaurant staff was five star, really helpful and accommodating. The room however was very disappointing very dated nothing like the pictures on website. The website specified WiFi, however this was not available.
