A recently revamped boutique hotel with plush interiors in the Eastcliff area, near the sea - includes breakfast, afternoon tea, and optional dinner

Boasting one of the highest sunshine records in the UK, sunny Bournemouth on southern England's Dorset coast is welcoming at any time of year. Enjoy refreshing strolls along the clifftop or on the long sandy beach; discover quirky museums; parade on two piers - one deemed 'the coolest pier in Britain' - and revel in time-honoured English traditions like tempting cream teas.

It's also at the easternmost end of the Jurassic Coast, where serious ramblers can hike 96 miles of stunning coastline – designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Back in town, the Art Deco Pavilion Theatre puts on a good show year round, while golf buffs can tee off at nearby Club at Meyrick Park Golf Course.

Ideally located in the town's desirable Eastcliff area – a peaceful wooded spot that's still an easy stroll from the centre, the long-cherished, boutique Orchid Hotel has just emerged from a complete makeover. Occupying an attractive Edwardian townhouse, this gem has reinvented itself as one of the town's go-to destinations for discerning guests – its public areas, lounges and most of the bedrooms having been transformed.

Expect pleasing hues of grey, taupe and mushroom, and carefully placed designer accessories. Settle down in a plush velvet stool at the smart bar, and dine in the No.34 Restaurant on beautifully presented dishes. The Orchid is listed as among Bournemouth's top 10 hotels on TripAdvisor.
