The Green House

The Green House

****

A five-minute meander from the city centre and the sands, The Green House is a smart seaside hotel that’s been given an eco-friendly overhaul. Sustainability informs everything from the furnishings (white, woody and, of course, green) to the food – the restaurant’s Modern British dishes are among the best in Bournemouth.

Highlights:

  • The UK’s most eco-friendly hotel

  • Five minutes’ walk from Bournemouth beach

  • Spectacular, sustainable Modern British dining

In the know

Also need to know:

One room has been adapted for wheelchair users. The hotel is a popular wedding venue on weekends, so be prepared for the bar and lounge to be busy. Check when you book to find out if there's an event on.Can’t find the milk? There’s a fresh jug kept in a communal minifridge on each floor (to save on packaging). Do ask for a tour of the kettle: the eco mechanism can befuddle first-timers.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

I won’t lie. There was a small sigh of relief as we entered our Bournemouth boutique hotel. More Bognor than Bilbao, this South Coast town is not always celebrated for its attractive architecture and the Green House Hotel is sandwiched between a Sixties’ block of flats and a red-and-white concrete abode named (rather ambitiously?) the Celebrity Hotel. Perhaps this is all deliberate – the build up makes first impressions of this stay all the more memorable.

Large conifers hide the hotel strip beyond, and sports cars fringe a palm-dotted front lawn with soft grey steps lead up to a gleaming, w

Dining information

Restaurant:

It might not sound like much to say the Green Room restaurant is the best in Bournemouth but it’s been drawing appreciative nods from those in the gastro know since it opened. As you’d expect, chef Andrew Hilton takes sustainability seriously, tweaking the menu almost daily to take advantage of what’s fresh, seasonal and readily available from the local area. The six-course tasting menu, which gives starring roles to dishes such as fluffed hen’s egg and black pudding, spicy squash soup and satsuma soufflé, is gloriously good value, and vegetarians are very well looked after, too.

Top table:

By the bay window, in the middle, where it’s brightest (by day) and free from passing elbows.

Last orders:

The Green Room serves dinner until 10pm (lunch is 12.30pm–2pm and breakfast, 7.30am–9.30am). Guests can drink in the bar around the clock. You can take afternoon tea anywhere in the hotel between midday and 6pm, but the best spot is outside on the lawn.

Room service:

There’s a 24-hour menu of snacks and sandwiches, with a handful of hot dishes and a tasty cheese platter.

Hotel bar:

Just off the lobby, the Green Room’s snug rectangular bar area is papered in Farrow & Ball thistle-print brocade (best not mention the fact it’s upside down), and dotted with comfy toweling-topped seating in green and purple. It’s ideal for pre-dinner berry mojitos, Sunday brunchtime Bloody Marys, or just a pint of Dorset ale. There’s a wide-ranging biodynamic wine list, too.
