Having served as inspiration to countless artists and novelists throughout the centuries, Dorset is a county practically brimming with romance. With rugged, windswept coasts and rolling, luxuriant countryside, it's easy to understand why the likes of Thomas Hardy felt compelled to try and capture its essence. As a destination for a special occasion, there are few counties that can rival what it has to offer. To make your visit extra-special, why not consider booking a stay in one of the growing number of boutique hotels in the county?
Why Stay In A Boutique Hotel In Dorset?
While a stay in a hotel can be a treat for anyone, deciding to spend your downtime in a Dorset boutique hotel can add another luxurious dimension. Boutique hotels are often smaller than traditional hotels, but this leaves the owners scope to attend to all those little details that larger establishments often overlook. You'll tend to find rooms are decorated individually and there is more attention to personal service. Boutique hotels in Dorset are generally blessed with fantastic views and scenery, helping you to relax and unwind.
An Affordable Slice Of The High-Life
However, booking a boutique hotel in Dorset doesn't necessarily mean digging deep: boutique hotels, such as the Washington House Hotel and the Cottonwood Boutique Hotel both offer an affordable slice of the high-life. Both these hotels provide stylish and intimate surroundings, with the Cottonwood offering an excellent restaurant as well as great accommodation. Dining in a boutique hotel is an altogether more personal experience; chefs are far more inclined to tailor dishes to your taste than in larger, more crowded hotel restaurants.
While there are mid-range boutique hotels in Dorset, if you want to make your stay a memorable one then there are a number that fall into the luxury bracket. For a special occasion, check out places like the The Green House in Bournemouth, and the Best Western Plus The Connaught Hotel. The Green House is set in a Victorian villa and also happens to be a licensed wedding venue - perfect for couples who want to tie the knot in superb surroundings.
Dorset is a special county and worth a visit. Booking a stay in a boutique hotel will only help to make your time there that much more memorable.
