Balincourt Guest House

"Great little guest house"
Just wanted a basic bed-and-breakfast, close to the beach. Balincourt is just a few minutes walk from the quiet part of the beach between Bournemouth and Boscombe. Good sized room with very comfortable bed and all the usual amenities - everything very clean and fresh. Excellent choice of breakfast and everything cooked to perfection. No U18s so aimed at single travellers and couples rather than families. We'll definitely stay here again on our next Bournemouth visit.

"Lovely people and was very helpful on our surround"
Lovely clean hotel with lovely donna and val who made us feel welcome and was very helpful and have our kids a goody bag on arrival and also could borrow the dvds for in the room. Only downside was we could not have a shower as the fitting was too high and not pointing down into shower so had to hold it for kids to wash.

The Living Room

"Pleasant accommodation with homely atmosphere"
Friendly greeting on arrival. Room clean and bright with nice little touches! Breakfast was very good with an excellent and somewhat different to the usual run of the mill B&B cooked selection. Furnishings, decor, fixtures and fittings were of a style that we found appealing. Bed not 100% comfortable but this can often be a case of personal preference. Being in a front bedroom we did find traffic on Alumhurst Road rather noisy but we are not used to traffic passing our bedroom at home so maybe it's just a case of getting used to it. This is life! All in all a relaxing atmosphere and we would recommend and return.

B&B Weymouth

68 The Esplanade, Weymouth - Map
 
 
"Cental location "
A lovely B&B very close to all amenities and across the road from the beach. Friendly, welcoming staff. Fab breakfast. Only downside was the nearby pub playing LOUD metal music until the early hours. Live music Fridays and Saturdays (see photo). Was hot so no choice but to have windows open. Central town location so to be expected but would have been nice to have been advised. Woken at 06:30 by road sweeper so not a great night's sleep. If you're used to quieter places, this may not be the place for you. We had room 14, with side road noise. Shame.

    Pocket Guide: Dorset Independent Hotels

    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.
