Hotel overview

The Green House opened in April, and claims to be the UK's greenest hotel. It is clear it takes sustainability seriously, from recycled furniture made from naturally fallen trees to the 100 per cent sheepskin carpet. The hotel is located a stone's throw away from the cliff top that overlooks Bournemouth's white sandy beach. It takes ten minutes to walk to the Bournemouth International Centre and the town centre.

First impressions

The white Grade II-listed Victorian villa is easy on the eye and is set in its own gardens. The interior is very light, with high ceilings and large arched windows. The reception staff are attentive and friendly.
Sleep tight There are 32 elegantly designed bedrooms, including five generous master doubles with free-standing baths. They all have Bose iPod docking stations.

Meetings facilities

The hotel has one space for events that can be split into two with a sound-proof divider. It holds a maximum of 100 theatre-style or 40 boardroom-style. It has brand new AV equipment and a Bose sound system.

Extras

The restaurant can also be hired privately. Try the nine-course tasting menu; the service is great and the food is delicious (seasonal and sourced within a 30-mile radius of the hotel). The bar has an array of cocktails to begin or end the night.
