I have never written a review on a hotel on this blog before as I usually write them on trip advisor but I felt I had to write one about The Christchurch Harbour Hotel and Spa in Christchurch, Dorset. It’s set against the backdrop of spectacular Harbour views.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a break at this Hotel last weekend for my nephew’s wedding. The forecast for our long drive down was awful last Friday on one of the coldest days for years. The snow down south was bad so we planned our route and were well equipped for any emergency with enough clothing, food, and drink in case we got stuck in the snow.
The 4.5 hours it took us to get there was better than we thought it would be but it was still an anxious drive through freezing rain, wind and snow so by the time we arrived at the hotel the one thing I was desperate for was a rest.
The rooms as you can see from the photos were lovely and the beds soooo inviting. We did have a bit of a giggle about the height of the bed as I am so tiny (in height) I thought I would need a step to get onto it. It wasn’t long before I was in the land of nod in a bed that was as comfortable as my own and even the pillows were perfect. The two nights that we stayed were two of the best night’s sleep I have had in ages.
All the facilities at the hotel were beautiful with a lovely spa if you had the time to go and enjoy it. Looking out at some of the harbour frozen over a bit was something I have never seen before but all the guests made it to the wedding and most like myself could not praise how comfortable the hotel was. To some people, the simple thing of whether the bed is up to scratch would probably be of no interest to them but for others like myself that could suffer greatly if the bed isn’t right will understand why I have written this review.
The journey home wasn’t as long as going but my back has suffered badly over the last week and so has my sleep so I I wish the hotel was nearer so I could do with pop back for another couple of good nights sleep.
