"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. Great, good value, food too.

Balincourt Guest House

58 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth - Map
 
 
"Overnight stay"
We stayed at the attractive and welcoming Balincourt Guest House just for one night. This Guest House was absolutely perfect for our stay, extremely convenient with parking at the front of the house which is very tricky in Bournemouth. It is close to the centre, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We preferred it to staying in a vast hotel where we didn't require a pool etc. The breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of cooked dishes and good quality food. The owners were very helpful and hospitable.

Everything about the George Albert Hotel was excellent except that it was let down by the breakfast which was dried out through being left in the hot trays for too long.

    Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Dorset

    Independent hotels are an excellent alternative to generic, chain hotels, but without compromising on quality or service. There is a growing number of independents in Dorset, ranging from small B&Bs and boutique hotels to chic, sleek country lodges and manor houses.

    Atmosphere and Character: Independent Hotels in Dorset

    When it comes to offering atmosphere and character, Dorset independent hotels have the upper hand. Often smaller than their chain-owned counterparts, you'll find that owners are more prepared to invest in making their hotel unique and paying attention to all the little details that can make your stay a memorable one. The Urban Beach Hotel in Bournemouth is a superb example of the lengths an independent hotel will go to, to make your visit unique. Eschewing formality in favour of quality, not only does this independent hotel offer exceptional accommodation, but you'll find that they even make their own cola syrup and fresh tonic for those leisurely drinks and cocktails.

    The Spotlight Focuses on the Guest

    Bournemouth's Balincourt Guest House demonstrates how independent hotels can cater for breaks of every kind. Offering award-winning accommodation, this hotel operates as a bed and breakfast. Each room is individually designed and boasts en-suite bathroom facilities. As with most independent hotels, the spotlight is thrown firmly on giving the guest the best stay possible, from the excellent breakfast to the availability of free Wi-Fi. While hotels such as the Balincourt have an appeal to businessmen or those just visiting for a night or two, they are just as able to cater for those who want to stay for longer.

    Size Isn't Everything!

    For those who think that independent hotels might not be able to offer the same facilities as larger hotels, The Green House in Bournemouth should dispel all doubt. In addition to being a green, sustainable hotel, The Green House is also a licensed wedding venue. Set in a beautiful Victorian villa, it was voted as the best wedding venue in Southern England by the Independent Magazine. With a team of wedding planners at your disposal, this is a wonderful wedding venue by anyone's standards.

    Dorset is an extraordinary county to visit at any time of year. For characterful accommodation that reflects something of who you are, check out the independent hotels in the region.
