This place is different, in a good way. The rooms are a very good size and the bed and room are comfortable. Just a couple of points that let it down, either they need a wider bath or to do away with the bath and put a big shower in. The bath was too narrow to have a comfortable shower. Also the ...

I have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at the Washington House Hotel while my son & I visited Bournemouth Uni. I loved the style of the furnishings, the comfy beds, excellent choice of continental breakfast, free parking, ease of walk to the city centre & beach. But above all the high light ...
We arrived very late but the staff were wonderful by providing help with the luggage and an offer of sandwiches and tea as we were too late for the local eating places. The room was very comfortable with a newly refurbished bathroom ensuite. Breakfast was fantastic and the staff once again excelled ...
We stayed in Bournemouth for my daughters graduation. The hotel was fantastic in every way. And very close to everything. We parked and was able to leave our car there. Our room was lovely and our welcome and breakfast was fantastic. And the chocolate, well....
Arrived late Saturday afternoon - received a warm and helpful welcome. Room was comfortable and nicely decorated in keeping with the rest of the hotel. My wife loved the soaps, body washes, etc. in the room. Had a great breakfast in the morning. The only problem was my doing - we didn't have enough ...
Teresa was very welcoming and a loved staying there. The room was spotless, warm and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was great and the place had a super homely feel to it. I'll definitely be staying there again when I next visit Bournemouth.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
