A relaxed boutique Bournemouth find, with stylish rooms and bistro dining - includes breakfast and optional two-course dinner

Small is definitely beautiful at boutique gem Urban Beach Hotel, past winner of Best Small Hotel in Bournemouth. Located just inland from Boscombe Pier, the traditional white-painted Victorian building houses a multitude of surprises, with an emphasis on relaxation and informality. For proud owner Mark Cribb, you can see that running this place is a true labour of love.

Enjoy a relaxed breakfast in the ground-floor bistro while browsing through the range of newspapers delivered daily. After a day out on the long sandy beach, exploring the Jurassic Coast or roaming the New Forest, return to find the bar and bistro transformed into a lively hub, with people often spilling out onto the large south-facing heated sun deck and sipping creatively mixed cocktails.

With only 12 individually decorated guest rooms, personal and attentive service is a given. Thoughtful touches include being able to borrow mobile phones and chargers, plus all-important wellies for relaxing beach walks. All this and more has earned Urban Beach Hotel a raft of perfect scores on TripAdvisor.

Good to know
