This hotel was recommended as one of top 10 UK hotels for weekend breaks! In my opinion the staff are friendly & helpful. The spa is nice too -although only limited swim times for kids which means rushing back for 5 if you've promised your child a swim! The hotel is however very run down. There was limited seating areas...

Absolutely appalling, no words to describe the rooms we had paid for in advance 6 weeks ago......... We had booked having seen this hotels extremely 'glossy' website promising a luxury experience with luxury bedrooms and an amazing spa. I have visited the Salcombe Harbour hotel (the sister hotel) many times before and stupidly assumed this would be of the same...

We went for a( day late) Valentine Taster Menu and being after 7pm we were on the more expensive £49.50 menu. I couldn't fault anything - staff, as always, are friendly and helpful without being 'in your face'. The Upper Deck restaurant has a very pleasant ambience, being classy and not overstated. We started with the Amuse Bouche of cauliflower...

This is our fourth return to the Christchurch Harbour. It's a great location, the food is excellent and the service very good. We ate at the Lower Deck on the first evening and The Jetty on our second. Both evening we had great meals. Our ground floor room (which we had stayed in before) now had window shutters in place...

A really nice 2 night stay for our babymoon before our baby arrives in April. A chance to have a few relaxing days with my husband. Dinner at the Upper Deck was delicious but you defintiely have to book to get a time that you want. The next evening we hadn't booked and ended up eating at 6.45pm- just a...

We stayed here for a function 2 years ago and all was excellent. This time, with teenager in tow, we needed a family room, which was extremely disappointing and the hassle trying to book exhausting. We kept being told we had to stay 2 nights at a weekend, despite having only stayed one night for a previous function and being...

Stayed at this hotel overnight on Friday as a surprise gift from my wife. I used to stay at this hotel many years ago when it was the Avonmouth Hotel in the 70s and 80s. It has changed hugely since then and has become more of a spa retreat. We stayed in one of the new rooms near the spa....

Popped in here for a sampling of the set lunch menu which was quite good value for money. The hotel has a generally good reputation if a little pricey but it certainly has the class to go with it.
