Anyone who loves Dorset will relish this latest visit to one of Britain`s most spectacular counties. Beginning at Studland, where Discovering Dorset Volume 1 ended, we take the Chain Ferry across Poole Harbour, first visiting the millionaires` playground of Sandbanks, and the glorious gardens at Compton Acres. A stroll around Poole Quay reveals how the town developed, largely through its trade links with North America. In more recent times, it was a major embarkation point for the D-Day landings of the Normandy Invasion. You will also see how an ancient local industry still thrives in the modern form of Poole Pottery. After looking at some of Poole`s most notable buildings, as well as Holes Bay and the national headquarters of the RNLI, we take a majestic boat trip around the second largest natural harbour in the world, which includes a view of Brownsea Island, where Robert Baden-Powell set up the first Scout Camp in 1907. We were also fortunate to be able to set sail on the world`s last seagoing paddlesteamer, Waverley, which berthed at Poole for the first time since 1987. As we reached Bramksome Dene Chine, the presentation was handed over to distinguished Bournemouth historian and tour guide John Walker. John is proud of this beautiful resort, which celebrates its bicentennial in 2010, and explains the history of significant sites such as the Royal Exeter Hotel, once home of the town`s founder Captain Lewis Tregonwell. You will also see St Peter`s Church, where Frankenstein author Mary Shelley is buried, enjoy a tribute to the town`s floral splendour, and of course visit the Pier, the Pavilion and the Bournemouth International Centre, which has been so important to the local economy since it opened in 1984. There is also time to call at Boscombe, Southbourne and the ancient town of Christchurch, famous for its splendid 11th century Priory and its stunning quay, before we finish our tour at Highcliffe, on the very edge of Hampshire.
Advantages: Great location, good value for money & nice food Disadvantages: Horrible bathrooms
...difficult really, as we needed somewhere that wasn't too bad but in a good area close to the tube. At the last minute all the decent hotels were full which left a lot of 2 star hostel type hotels, which had some pretty horrible reviews.
After a painful time I finally came across the Royal National Hotel which seemed half decent well there wasn't reports of rooms being ransacked put it that way...
Advantages: close to train station Disadvantages: lots of things
...Royal National Hotel ? 3 star
While we were in London on our honeymoon we had to stay over one night before we started our Cosmos tour of Europe (see review). One of the places that the tour met you at that we were told about was at the Royal National Hotel so we thought it probably would be easiest if we stayed at this hotel instead of trying to find it in a panic. So my husband booked it...
Advantages: large rooms, pleasant decor downstairs, most staff lovely, value for money, food Disadvantages: some rude staff, rooms needing refurbished
...coach trips to Blackpool. At the time of booking, we had no hotel choice as there was only one suitable room available within all of their hotels. My parents stayed at this hotel 2 weeks prior to our visit and thankfully all was well with it. We stayed at this hotel Monday - Friday (27th of Feb - 2nd March). This time of year is considered to be 'out of season'.
