You are dealing with professionals here but that still deserves a review because they were brilliant. The venue had been the dream of the bride and groom because other family members were married here. Arrangements before the function were thorough and adapted as covid restrictions changed. The venue was amazing but the staff made everything flow so you hardly noticed the changes. A rememberable day was had by all and I do not feel we intruded on other hotel guests enjoying their time. Several family members stayed the night, great rooms and a splendid breakfast in wonderful surroundings to send us off home. Thank you Christchurch Harbour Hotel.

We have just stayed at the Harbour Hotel at Christchurch while visiting friends. The staff are very friendly and will help you make your stay enjoyable.

Coming from a busy city centre this hotel was a breath of fresh air. Great location for Mudeford, wonderful views from the restaurant and garden and all in all it was a blooming good chilled break. REALLY minor negatives. Parking was a bit tricky. There didn’t seem to be enough for all the residents and everything nearby was taken. The rooms are ok but prices vary greatly across seasons. If I’d gone outside the peak I would have thought it a bargain. In peak I felt it lacked a little for the cost. The room I had was a bit tired and when I opened the window the vents for the kitchen were outside which meant cooking smells. The on site restaurant was fully booked for dinner as were the other ones nearby. So make sure you book up early. Will happily come back…just not in high season.

Harbour Hotel is such a lovely place to stay. The staff made us feel so welcome ( especially Kirk the concierge who not only gave my husband a birthday card and box of chocolates but also arranged a table at the Jetty. And when our daughter left her teddy in reception he returned it to us to sat on his shoulder to the delight for our daughter). The family room was spacious with everything we needed. Really comfy beds. The food was great- good choice for us all and fantastic puddings; ‘oops I dropped my ice cream’ was amazing! The location is great, close to the Quay with the most fabulous views. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. We can’t wait to stay again. Thank you for making my husbands birthday weekend away really special.

Having visited the Christchurch Harbour Hotel on a wedding open day early 2019, my daughter and fiance decided this was a perfect venue for their wedding. Although originally booked for June 2020, owing to covid the couple postponed the date until mid September 2021 so that family and friends could attend. The Wedding Team at the hotel were all fantastic answering questions promptly and professionally. Hannah guided us with bar tabs, room reservations etc. We used the recommended suppliers listed in the CHH wedding brochure - all very good indeed. The day before the wedding we had a comprehensive final details meeting with Sher. She ensured that on the day all ran to absolute perfection, what an incredible person, she was always smiling and very efficient. We had the ceremony at the hotel as well as the reception, in-between the ceremony and wedding breakfast guests went out onto the patio and used the fabulous beach hut bar for drinks. The food was superb, we had 75 guests including 8 small children - the children were catered for very well too. Some of the wedding party stayed 4 nights. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed and very well looked after by the Housekeeping Team. We found all the staff to be excellent including the Reception Team (thank you to Lynn for all her assistance), The Bar and Restaurant Team and also the kind staff assisting guests in the car park. This is an exceptional hotel with exceptional staff.
