The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Places to stay

Contrary to assumptions, the range of places to stay in Bournemouth and Poole has come on in leaps and bounds from the shabby seafront guesthouse of yesteryear. Happily, these neighbouring ports boast a vibrant blend of accommodation, varying from the traditional to the modernist and cutting-edge boutique hotels. Nowhere better exemplifies this refreshing hybrid than Poole’s Hotel du Vin which retains the elegance of its mansion house setting but with a wealth of mod-cons and a more than respectable bistro. Down coast in Bournemouth, the gleaming art-deco Cumberland Hotel and The Marriot Highcliff provide great sea views. The surrounding area has no shortage of cosy and affordable Bournemouth B&Bs, or why not rent one of the colourful beach huts at Mudeford for that quintessential seaside getaway?
