As always another faultless stay at our first choice hotel. Spotlessly clean, quiet and a very large room. Breakfast was superb as always. Just wish I could pick this hotel up and take it everywhere we go. Thanks for a great stay.

Enjoyable stay! - Rating 5/5

My wife and I just spent three lovely days in Bournemouth, and we thoroughly enjoyed are stay at the Winter Dene Hotel while we were there. The warm hospitality of hotel owners Renzo and Heather, seemed to complement the clean and well-presented room, wonderful morning breakfasts (cooked to order), and great location with parking on-site. We are already looking forward to another visit to Bournemouth in the future and intend on staying again at the Winter Dene!

Fully recommend - Rating 5/5

Ideally situated for both the beach and the town.The room was big as well as the lovely bed.Everywhere was very clean and tidy including the décor. Shower was great - with power - sometimes in other hotels the power can be rather weak. Fantastic breakfast too.Don't re-visit hotels very much as always try to find different places, but would definitely consider staying here again if we are in the are.

Lovely Hotel - Rating 5/5

My husband and I stayed at the Winter Dene Hotel for 4 nights last week it is a lovely hotel our room was very comfortable and clean and was serviced every day with clean towels, tea, coffee etc and bottles of water. The breakfast had a wide selection to choose from and was delicious and with advanced notice caters for diet needs. The owners were very friendly and staff efficient. The only down side was there was no evening meal so you had to go out every night to find somewhere to eat but we were aware of this when we booked. We would certainly stay there again.

September Holiday 2015 - Rating 4/5

4 of us stayed a week at the Winter Dene at Bournemouth. A very plesant stay . The rooms were lovely and big , the shower toilet etc were great everywhere was spotlessly clean . The bed very comfortable was change wednesday towels were changed if you asked . The breakfast were everything you needed no complant there . Plenty of parking which is a bonus these days . The owners were their if you needed anything but otherwise just saw them at breakfast . The only thing i would like to say being September 12 till 19 2015 the 4 of us found the hotel not at all warm late afternoon and evenings . 1 minor detail was came in on the Friday and who ever mad our bed just threw the covers over but was soon sorted when i complaned others great
