p Where will I be staying /p
p This hotel is the very definition of relaxation, with its jaw-dropping postcard-esque views of the coast and harbour. It s a retreat within a retreat and you ll never want to go back to normality again just saying. /p
p The room chronicles /p
p The rooms are fresh, stylish and elegant. In fact, they d fit right into an issue of The English Home magazine. With the choice of a water or garden view everything is a sight for sore eyes. You ll have free Wi-fi, fancy toiletries, and other little gems to make your stay comfortable. /p
p This hotel s great because /p
p You ve probably figured out the tranquillity of this place by now. And the spa here is the cherry on top. With its 2 pools, salt grotto, crystal steam room, Harbour Hideaway (offering views right across Mudeford Quay pray for sunshine as this Hideaway is best enjoyed right outside on a lounger), and endless list of treatments you re in for treat. /p
p Wining and dining /p
p There s 2 restaurants to choose from - both with a different kind of ambience, but an equally exquisite food offering. There s the Upper Deck a yacht themed, alfresco dining sanctuary, and The Jetty a multiple award-winning eatery, sitting on the water s edge. Both offer incredibly fresh seafood and other local produce, and have the most ridiculous of views. /p
p Exploring the neighbourhood /p
p You re surrounded by au naturel beauty and in a very lucky position indeed. The immaculate Avon beach is right on your doorstep for pretty walks and views of the Needles and Isle of Wight. You re also just 8 miles out from Bournemouth centre if you wanted a taste of what it has to offer. The airport is 6 miles away and Christchurch train station 2 miles. /p
p In a nutshell: Cute as a button /p
