... It now includes one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pastureland, heathland and forest in south East England. Horse and cattle roam over the hills, roads and in the villages which is really strange to see. What a lovely area though, you could spend a lot of time there investigating the little villages dotted around and wandering through the forest tracks and beside the lakes and streams. And we would have if we ...

... once - love not having to pick up and move every few days...the boat does the travel for you :) There are so very many activities to do on a cruise that we like to pick a few that we haven't done on each cruise and do those first. This afternoon, we took a ship's tour given by the Assistant Cruise Director - a lovely English girl called Karen. We learned a few things we didn't know - including that we should ...

... I invested in new brakes. Spillers Farm, the B&B for the night was a short way along the main road. The owners, Bridget and Keith, had moved from London to run the 13acre farm and are self sufficient in fruit and veg, also from the sheep, chickens and Gloucester Old Spot pigs--no pigs there at present. They make their own sausages, etc and are probably influenced by the nearby River Cottage of TV fame. The strong head wind and hills took their toll and I was early to ...

... haunts, including a Spoons (cheap, cheerful, good atmosphere), we were sadly not able to see any footballers in Aruba (which was too much of a club for my liking, but it did have the novelty of being located on a pier, containing its very own balcony overlooking the beach, and err.. witnessing the amorous habits of locals below (Note to those - GET A ROOM). I had the opportunity to meet these guys throughout the week and it was great to see everyone, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS The Connaught Hotel Bournemouth

    Dated hotel. Not worth the money

    from

    I recently stayed here in one of their so-called 'superior' double rooms. I was very disappointed as I had expected more for my money. The room was quite small, the decor quite dated and although it said I could get wifi internet access in my room it did not work. Found a cockroach in our bathroom at night!

    The front office is very scruffy and gives a terrible first impression as you go in.

    The leisure club is ok and looks like it's had more money spent on it recently which is good.

    Shame the rest of the hotel did not live up to the amazing looking website on which I booked.

    Not awful but not great

    from

    I stayed with my partner for two nights at this hotel. We had a superior double room. It was small but did have a small balcony which was quite pleasant. The room was not , by any standard, what one would call luxury but it was clean & tidy.

    My biggest gripe was that the cleaners were on the corridor from 8.00am and were knocking the door to service it from 8.15 and shouting to each other so any chance of a restful break were out of the window. We asked for room service which was ok except the night staff couldn't give us any wine because they didn't know where it was. The room service directory was two years out of date. I wouldn't stay there again.

    Avoid at all costs!

    from

    Booked a 'superior' room for a Saturday night, should have cost 160 but negotiated 120. The hotel is scruffy internally but we could not believe the room. The furniture was archaic, wallpaper peeling, 1970's bathroom fittings, dirty carpet, etc. If that was superior I hate to think what the normal rooms are like.

    DO NOT BOOK THERE!!

    Overpriced

    from

    I booked this hotel, looking forward to a week of luxury and comfort. Was I disappointed!!!

    Average hotel

    from

    This is a very average hotel. Hotel needs renovating. All looking a bit tired. Our room was rather shabby, decor needs updating, wallpaper peeling etc. We stayed in a family suite, but not very spacious. With a double bed, and a single bed very little room left.

    However, staff were all very friendly, and service was good. Room service very efficient, and breakfast very good too.

    Quite disappointed with accomodation, would not stay there again, unless updated and improved.

    A nice choice

    from

    Best Western hotels can never be described as charming. Perfectly acceptable would be far more accurate. Our room was small and dark, but quiet and clean. The bathroom was small (to be expected) but in good condition.

    The hotel is on a quiet street on top of the West Cliff (it is about a 10 minute downdown.... down hill going and steeply uphill coming back).

    Our room rate included breakfast, which was quite nice (Juice, cereal, cake, fruit and a selection of hot foods). We never left feeling hungry

    Surprisingly for a hotel of this category, there was a gym and pool.. It was nice to be able to work-out and then go for a long swim.

    If you don't have high expectations, this hotel will work well for you.

    Lovely rooms friendly service

    from

    My fiance and I stayed here and found it excellent. The rooms were nice and the food was great. We would like to thank the manager Nikki who made our stay very special with her wonderful service. Will be back again soon I'm sure.

    Consistantly Awful!

    from

    THis hotel was a real disappointment. For the price and claims in their leaflet and website and I was expecting something reasonable but what we actually got was very poor.

    A good 3* hotel

    from

    We stayed there for 2 nights in Sept 2004 :

    Perhaps not again!

    from

    modernised, clean hotel, a few minutes from the beach and town. pleasant staff, quite good facilities, choice of eateries.
