Nice but Kane maintain everything needed My husband and I stayed for 3 nights as we were in the area for our mini-moon. The room was clean and comfortable, but there was no phone to call for any room service and the corridor constantly smelt of cleaning products. The staff especially the barman were friendly and helpful, though the service ...

Business or leisure - a great place to stay.I've stayed in 100s of hotels and often find myself thinking "why don't they just do x or y" but not here. This hotel has pretty much thought of everything, from little things like proper tea and coffee in the room to big stuff like great staff who create a friendly, vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. ...

Pocket Guide: Boutique Hotels Hotels in Dorset

Dorset is one of England's most beautiful counties and a pleasure to visit, whether you're here on business or stealing some time away with the family. Located between the M3 and the M5, it's home to a variety of attractions such as Lulworth Castle, Poole Harbour and the rugged miles of the Jurassic Heritage Coast. While there are plenty of hotels in Dorset, you can always take the option to make your stay even more memorable by booking into a design hotel.

A Fusion Of Style And Substance: Design Hotels In Dorset

Design hotels are for those who want the perfect fusion of style and substance. Typically, they tend to be smaller than their chain-lead counterparts, offering something akin to a boutique experience: attentive service, individually designed rooms, modern amenities and all the little details that remind you that you are being dutifully looked after. By booking a Dorset design hotel you can expect the levels of quality you'd find in a high-end hotel, but in much more intimate and luxurious surroundings.

Wedding Hotels In Dorset

The Cumberland Hotel in Bournemouth is an excellent example. Close to Brownsea Island and the Bournemouth International Centre, it offers more than just a stay; it offers an experience. With tastefully-decorated rooms, a double-AA star-awarded restaurant and free Wi-Fi access, there's everything you could need to enjoy your downtime. In addition, the Cumberland Hotel is a licensed wedding venue, providing a classy and contemporary backdrop for couples tying the knot.

Dorset Spa Hotels

The Riviera Hotel & Holiday Apartments Alum Chine is another superb design hotel in Dorset. Boasting a similar set-up to the Cumberland, it also has the added bonus of its own on-site spa, where guests can indulge in a range of restorative and relaxing treatments set in supremely serene surroundings. Again, this is an ideal venue for couples looking for somewhere special to spend their Big Day.

Design Hotels For Business Or Pleasure

Another excellent alternative is the Village Hotel Bournemouth. With beautiful views over Bournemouth Bay and a contemporary feel throughout, this is an excellent Dorset hotel for businessmen who want to take advantage of a top-notch design hotel that also offers superb conference and meeting facilities.

Dorset is a fascinating county to visit, whatever your reasons for going. Book a room in a design hotel and you can make the most of the region, at your own pace.
