8/10 Very good

Looks lovely but bit disappointed
Friendly welcome. First look the room was very nicely styled. However, the bed was not comfy , way too soft. Noise from road all night kept us awake. We booked for a cooked breakfast but this was not available on the day. Even though the booking stated it was included. The waitress said she would get a £10 per head refund sorted for us. This has not happened yet but may do soon. So we had a continental breakfast instead.

Family stay in Wimborne
We reserved two rooms one for my wife and I and the other room for my brother who is 72. Our room was satisfactory however the other room ( my brother's) the only bedside lamp did not work and was dangerous and broken which took more than 12 hours to repair. Also my brother's room ( Chardonnay) was small and had a double bed even though it was a single room. We asked for a lounge chair as there was no where to sit and they supplied a dinning chair. Tea and coffee was supplied however the milk was not replenished on a regular basis. Breakfast was very good and the staff were always friendly. The other room we reserved ( Burgundy) was excellent and the bathroom in particular with both bath and shower with plenty of hot water. We would stay here again however we would only select the rooms with a bath which we have learnt are limited.

6/10 Good

A little disappointed
We had to wait until 5.40pm for our room to be ready due to staff sickness, we had booked a luxury double but we’re put in a premium double, the lighting is very low no good for putting your makeup on and there’s no where to plug a hair dryer or straightners in where you can see in a mirror too. Take a pair of slippers because the carpets in the rooms are that hard wearing it hurts your feet. The bed was really comfortable, the room was warm and clean and the towels were fluffy. The staff were all friendly but the service is lacking, I waited half an hour for a cold breakfast sandwich. Really reasonable parking available across the road and a 4 minute walk to the Tivoli Theatre which was the reason for our stay
