Second stay here. Lovely staff great location but the room needs updating especially the bathroom. The pillows are very poor quality and spoiled our sleep. Soap dispenser is screwed to the wall, not very high end or boutique to do this. Ours was also empty. Breakfast lovely . But 10am is too early for it to finish especially at weekends.... More

I booked this hotel direct and it was the first time I had been here. I decided to try it as I had seen it when passing by and it looked lovely, just the kind of boutique hotel I might like. I might have got a clue as to some of the difficulties I might face when I first went... More

Came here on a Wednesday night (jazz night) and it was justifiably busy. Music was pleasant, staff very friendly, food very decent and plenty of it too ! Has a good reputation and I can see why. Quite how the typically older clientele managed to put away the generous servings is beyond me !

Booked last minute to visit family who live nearby. Fortunately there was availability. Lovely quaint hotel, excellent location to shops, pubs and beach. It is fair to say that the staff without exception are charming. Nothing is too much trouble and I would thoroughly recommend. We didn't eat in the restaurant unfortunately other than breakfast which was superb

We had our wedding at the Lord Bute. From the moment we walked in to view it as a venue we received the best service. The hotel has such a homely comfortable feel. All the staff went above and beyond to make our wedding and stay perfect, especially Christopher. I stayed in the Garden suite the night before the wedding... More

During the wedding there were a number of new staff being trained which led to a few issues that were quickly resolved. The breakfast staff were... More

We have stayed in this hotel 2 nights during the wedding of my brother. In general, the hotel is nice, comfy and as I believe it´s perfect place for any weeding you might plan. The venue is nice, especially amazing Garden Suite.

We stayed for one night in the Lord Bute Suite for our wedding night after getting married at Highcliffe Castle. We stayed in the Lord Bute Suite and wish we could have stayed for longer. It is set over two floors with a good size lounge area, bedroom and a very large bathroom. Despite being next to the road there... More
