Excellent hotel/pub clean tidy and comfortable
Me and my partner travelled down for a family wedding n booked the hotel very late, when we got there it was clean n tidy n very popular with the locals which meant a great atmosphere.
The food was amazing n well priced with a wide variety of drinks. The room was really comfy n a good size n the shower was very hot with a good pressure if I'm ever in this area again will definitely stop here
Spy and Kettle
Website stated recently refurbished rooms!!.
Shower head - more water coming out bottom of it then sprayer. Window screwed shut - no blind/curtain at window. Toilet sounded if was being regurgitated every time it flushed. Soap dispenser hanging off wall - good job none in it. TV about same size as an Ipad - good job brought glasses. Live music in the bar attracted us. This was cancelled when we came down for dinner.
A day in Bournemouth
They were very friendly people.
I loved it.
Spyglass and Kettle
Staff were polite and helpful as required.
Great location right on the seafront with easy access to town centre and other local attractions.
Very pleasant staff, good food and a good selection of drinks, the position was perfect for us either when using the car or the bus, I would recommend the Spyglass and kettle for short breaks.

Paid £118 for two nights for a twin room.
The picture looked lovely so I took a chance on the price. Unfortunately when they did the refurbishment, the ran out of money to do the room. Very basic room, although very clean,needed updating. The staff were friendly but the whole experience was impersonal as you have to deal with bar staff during your stay. I would stay again but the company needs to review their prices.

Great Welcoming Atmosphere
Newly refurbished pub with lovely atmosphere, clearly family friendly with well trained and helpful (but not pushy) staff.
Just on the sea front with sea views from the first floor and above. Excellent range of drinks available and good menu. Rooms more than adequate, scrupulously clean, with comfortable beds and bedding. We were the only guests staying on this particular out of season date, and our arrival at the breakfast table (already well laid out) came as a little surprising to some of the staff, but their care, courtesy and prompt supply of a beautifully cooked (and generous) breakfast more than made up for our brief wait. Live entertainment in the evening (duo - excellent) did not continue beyond 11.30 pm so no problems at all getting a restful night's sleep. Great being able to park in their car park instead of roadside. Convenient location for what we wanted - and just 15 minutes drive to Bournemouth sea front.
Stay over Xmas period
1) First single room shown was filled with furniture still being made.
Shown and offered alternative room which was very nice. First room should have been cleaned and ready. 2) Unfortunately the room was directly above where a live band was performing Sat night. Deafening music till 12.30 am was not really appreciated after long drive from Newcastle.
3) Major problem with returning to pub after closing time Mon night.. Swipe card did not function and bell was unanswered so no entry possible. On a bitter night goodness knows what I could have done if I had no contacts in the area.
4) Breakfast needed more supplies of crockery, knives, butter etc, as none available when I had breakfast at 9am. Good point was that the customer service person did not dispute the concerns and refunded the night charge when entry was impossible.
staff on evening excellent but person in the morning when called spoiled a good review
arrived to find out that the rooms were prematurely booked as none ready it had only reopened that day.
however the staff were lovely getting a room ready and looking after us very well. But the morning the place was in darkness and locked we had to go out for the day at 8.30 so had to take the room key. I kept calling the hotel tel no until someone answered and the lady who it appears was the cleaner .. told me they needed the key by 2pm quite adamantly - so with her tone she spoiled the overall experience slightly as there should have been someone at least there in morning never mind the option of having breakfast . but have to commend the staff on the night time they were lovely
