The Jurassic Coast

A travel blog entry by jo.kidd2


... 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 ...

Dorchester to Musbury 40m. 64k

A travel blog entry by sallyj22


... them right for being so unfriendly!! After Bridport the going got harder with longer and steeper hills, a lot of which I walked up. The longest was from Wooton Fitzpaine ; while I was walking I saw three deer quite close looking over the hedge. I left the No2 for the No52 for a couple of miles, then turned down a tiny lane towards Musbury. This went along the ridge for a while, then plunged downhill towards the village. It must have been at least 1in3 and I was ...

Brighton and Bournemouth Seaside Escape

A travel blog entry by philwill14

... and Brighton's famous pier, and there it was..... Brighton seaside beach huts, pier and esplanade, wet, windy, raining and not a grain of sand in sight. We parked the car and headed for a little Fish and Chip shop right on the waterfront esplanade, it was freezing cold outside after our cosy 25 degrees in the car, so we bolted inside as all the other poms outside the cafe looked curiously at us. Not sure what the fish was, but it was good fish and chips and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Suncliff Hotel Bournemouth

    Pretty decent hotel ignore other bad reviews great Food!


    Please ignore other bad reviews about this hotel.

    Pleasant stay


    My husband and I returned last week from a very pleasant stay at the Suncliff Hotel, Bournemouth. We found this hotel as it is a sister of the Riviera on the West Cliff, where we visit once a year in June.

    Was enjoyable but some problems


    On arrival at Suncliff hotel, first impressions were that the hotel looked nice from the outside. We went in and the young receptionist did not look very presentable and was abit rude. We got there 10 minutes early and instead of saying please take a seat over there she basically said go away and come back in 10 minutes! we were abit shocked!

    Enjoyable Stay At The Suncliff


    My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Suncliff early in July 2005. The staff were very pleasant and responsive. We thought the food was first class and the dining facilities very good. We were a little surprised that our twin-bedded room had the beds together, but this did not detract from our use of the room. The en-suite shower room appeared to be newly refurbished. We had a rear room on the ground floor with a view of the fire escape and the yard, but were not troubled by any undue noise. Although we were unable to find time to use the swimming pool, we thought it looked very nice and enticing. All-in-all, a very enjoyable stay.

    Needs Refurbishing


    For convenience for visiting my family and having stayed at its sister hotel the Riveira for our Honeymoon, we decided to spend our 20th Wedding Anniversary at this place.

    Lucky break


    On arriving at the hotel the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Good 3* hotel


    Stayed for 2 nights and i found the hotel to be quite good, went down to the swimming pool which was quite nice as it has no one in there and it was quite refreshing. The actual room was quite good i thought clean and tidy and got cleaned each day.

    The only negative point was that you had to be out by 10:30 and i felt a little rushed to be out bu otherwise i was happy with the stay and would go back there again.

    More like Faulty Towers .....


    ....... than a 3 star hotel. We were looking forward to a well earned rest and booked a long weekend in this hotel. The disappointment began after checking in and getting to our room. It was situated below the fire escape so the view from the window was very restricted with hardly any daylight. We were offered an alternative but on inspection decided against moving - the bathroom was like something from the 1960's!! So we decided to stay put - after unpacking we were aware of a dripping sound which turned out to be water from the room above. Back to reception for yet another move. This time we were on the fourth floor (which was not availabe when we first requested a room change). Great, we thought, we had a window we could see out of.

    I wouldn't bother.....


    Two nights in a double room, booked online kept fingers crossed but wound up disappointed.The room was basic with squeaking floorboards, awful bed with worse pillows and stained sheets. Both nights were long and uncomfortable and we went home tired and aching. The en-suite had a mixer shower that delivered water from both shower head and taps regardless of where you actually wanted it to come from. The rooms have poor sound insulation and you have to have the tv on late at night or you get to listen to next door's channel. Lot's of noise throughout the night, door's slam and the floors squeak in the hallways. Friends of ours asked to change rooms on arrival as their room was worse than ours but they were told the only available alternative was a room that turned out to be, in their words..."disgusting". After returning to their original room they found water leaking through the ceiling onto the bed. They were then given another room that had suddenly become available on the fourth floor. Their upgraded room was no better than the original and they suffered the same problems as us with the bed and noisy floorboards.

    Good food!


    We stayed at this hotel during Feb half-term for 2 nights. We had a family room for 2 adults and 2 children which was a good size. Tea and coffee facilties were provided and replenished on demand but I thought having a kettle on a shelf above the bed was a strange and dangerous idea. The leisure facilities were ok although the swimming pool could have been a bit warmer.... The food was a much better standard than we'd expected-more like a 4* which was a nice surprise. The children really enjoyed the evening entertainment which was a disco on the first night and a singer on the second. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay.
