Booked this online and so read all the reviews for several hotels but this stood out as one which would suit us. From the initial check in to when we left I cannot fault the service nor staff who were helpful and dealt efficiently with any requests we had. The swimming pools are clean and warm which was great, and... More

I like practical art holidays because, living on my own (I am 85, a widower) I enjoy meeting others with interests in common. My three nights at the Boscombe Spa Hotel were exactly what I had hoped to find. There were 11 staying for a weekend course 'Winter Buildings' . From the welcoming glass of wine on the first night,... More

I go here frequently for art holidays, in which the hotel specialises. Nothing is too much trouble for the proprietors Christine and John. They maintain a friendly and relaxed house-party atmosphere. John's cooking is superb. Accommodation is simple but comfortable. The art breaks are really good value for money, with everything included (even wine at dinner if you want it)... More
