The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel

Bournemouth, Dorset


Sea View room


Bournemouth Town Hall

Stay at an elegant clifftop hotel in Bournemouth with quirky boutique interiors and stunning views – includes breakfast, a sea-view room and optional dinner

A long-standing British seaside favourite, Bournemouth has much to offer for a quick weekend break or a longer stay. Enjoy golden sandy beaches which seems to stretch forever, vibrant town nightlife, super surfing or pleasant strolls along the clifftop. Perfectly positioned for promenading, The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel is perched along the town’s desirable East Cliff, commanding expansive views out to sea, with the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks often visible in the distance. On sunny days you can watch the world go by from the aptly named Bar Vista’s south-facing sea-view terrace and manicured lawns.

Hotel interiors are an eclectic mix of quirky old-fashionedness with a stylish boutique edge – from bold patterned prints and brightly coloured wallpaper in public areas to a smart grey-and-white combo in the guest rooms. Play a game of chess or catch up on some reading in the cosy library. Elsewhere the flamboyant pink-and-gold Garden Restaurant offers a range of classic British fare, as well as seriously tempting afternoon teas with the works. Evenings are often livened up with a spot of live jazz music.
