We went for a short break and the hotel was as good as last year. It is a very friendly hotel with good service and spotlessly clean rooms. The breakfast was excellent and I would recommend this hotel for both business and holidays.

Have stayed in Bournemouth several times and this is a perfect location on the clifftop. Seaview room has just such wonderful views. Service was lovely, very, very friendly and relaxed. Ross brought us biscuits and drinks on arrival. It also has a small bar where you can get a drink in the evening which was nice after a journey. Have...

Very pleasant exoerience at Westcotes House. All you would expect from a B&B plus a lot of genuine and personal touches that make you feel a welcomed guest. Nothing seems to much trouble for these guys. Great views from room 2, comfy bed, modern decor and lovely cooked breakfast to order. Close to Bournemouth and Christchurch (about 3 miles from...

Thank you very much for a great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us that you would come back again. Its a shame you didn't make it a week earlier, when the sun was shining - instead we all got something rather more seasonal, especially on Friday night with all that wind and rain! Glad you...

The hotel is run by some charming young gentleman who couldn't do enough for us grey haired ladies :o). It was our second stay this year and we look forward to more visits next year. The decor is very modern, stylish and fresh and the themed coloured rooms are tastefully kitted out. The views are stunning and it's a perfect...

I spent a week at Westcotes House, and found it superb in every respect. I stayed in the Pantone grey room, with magnificent views out over the bay, and all the small things - which make the big difference - were there. Ross and Graham were flexible over my need to have an early breakfast each day; they helped me...

Thanks once again to Ross, David and Graham. LOVE your scrambled eggs so much!! The modern décor still makes Westcotes the best place to stay in Bournemouth. Will definitely be back with our new dog in the summer for walks along that sandy beach.
