Good Hotel Guide Review

The fourth of Robin Hutson’s informal, coolly rustic hotels, this little Pig went to the beach, settling in a ‘wonderful location’ – a rambling manor house in gardens facing Studland Bay. ‘Beautifully designed bedrooms’ range from ‘cheap and cheerful’ to rather more generous, via a couple of cottages and two quirky shepherds’ huts with sea views. ‘We were upgraded to the Bothy, a wonderful thatched solus room within the bountiful walled kitchen garden. It’s eclectic and shabby-chic, which is fun, but more importantly, it works. Everything in the room is there both for a purpose and to make it special, without any sense of bling.’ Plus: ‘It’s got the best-stocked minibar I’ve ever encountered.’ The kitchen garden dictates the dishes served in the conservatory dining room. ‘The 25-mile menu was difficult to choose from, because we wanted to try so many things. Everything we did choose hit the spot – we’re still raving about the juicy, tender partridge.’ (When weekend drop-in diners threaten to overwhelm, a separate residents’ area is ‘a welcome retreat’.) ‘We loved breakfast.’ (Danielle Hommel, James Waghorn)

Guest comments

'Stayed in the Bothy which was wonderful and secluded, in the walled vegetable garden. Quite snug but beautifully designed and best stocked mini-bar I've ever encountered . Excellent staff and wonderful location. As the restaurant is very busy at the weekend it can get a little overwhelming for guests of the hotel, but there is a separate area for residents which was a welcome retreat. Loved the full breakfast -especially the white pudding and homemade granola ' - Danielle Hommel - March, 2017
'For my wife's birthday, they d upgraded us to the Bothy, a wonderful thatched solus room inside the bountiful walled kitchen garden. Eclectic, shabby chic - which is fun - but more important, everything in the room worked. The '25 mile' dinner menu was difficult to choose from because we wanted to try so many things and everything we did choose hit the spot. Great choice of three breakfast prices. ' - James Waghorn - November, 2016
