The Elstead Hotel in Bournemouth is fabulous

We have just returned from a 3 night break in Bournemouth.

The Elstead Hotel and Spa is fabulous. We had 3 nights dinner, bed and breakfast

They upgraded us to a big family room for just the two of us.  It had a fridge so we could have fresh milk with our morning cup of tea

All areas of the Hotel were spotlessly clean. The meals were really lovely. The Staff were all friendly and made us feel genuinely welcome. It was great spending a few hours in the pool, Sauna, Steam Room and Jacuzzi before dinner every day

We had to visit the Aviary in the park.  The birds all sound so happy and they are clearly well looked after.  The green parrot talks !  Oh well back home now.  I have only one more weeks annual leave left.


  1. Love Bournemouth too. My girls remember the aviary very well. Are there still loads of pigeons around waiting to be fed as well Marion - land on your hands like they used to in Trafalgar Square - or have the council banished them yet. Looks a nice place you stayed at - lucky lady.

  2. We visited the birds too. We were in Bournemouth three years ago. I loved the park & at night they would light hundreds of little tea lights which made shapes like boats & butterflies - happy times.....
    Your hotel looks gorgeous - fab bathroom too...!!!

  3. What a lovely place Marion, I bet you did not want to come back.
    Also thank you for your helpful comments.
    best wishes Julie.C
