The 4-star Green House Hotel is less than a mile (or a 16-minute walk) from Bournemouth's city centre and its beach. With only 32 rooms spread across a Grade II-listed Victoria villa, it fully deserves its eco-boutique label. The hotel’s impressive green credentials include everything from the Farrow & Ball eco paint and timber floors made from sustainably managed forests to the solar-powered lighting and organic bedding used throughout. Understandably, the hotel is popular with wedding and business-event organisers keen to impress guests with their low-carbon footprint.
The eco theme continues into the hotel's on-site Arbor restaurant, which holds two AA rosettes and was awarded a Gold at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2014 and a Highly Commended from the Southwest England Tourism Excellence Awards 2014-2015. Red magazine describes the food as "worthy of MasterChef". The brasserie uses locally sourced and organic ingredients where possible in its innovative dishes -- the scallops come from Lyme Bay; the wild mushrooms from the New Forest; the cheese is from a nearby Hampshire farm; and the meat from a 3rd-generation Devizes butcher.
By day, enjoy an in-room beauty treatment, or have drinks and pastries – including afternoon tea -- in the brocade-patterned wallpapered Green House bar, which is open from 10am-10pm. The hotel’s afternoon tea features finger sandwiches, cakes and homemade scones on a 3-tier wooden tree, which includes a selection of Dorset teas.
Small Double rooms are -- as the name suggests -- on the snug side, but come with a Bose iPod dock, organic bedding, a bathroom unit made from old Harvester restaurant tables, and a natural stone basin. Opt for a Large Double for more space and luxurious extras, including a reclaimed Victorian roll-top bath and a 6-foot bed.
