Christchurch Harbour Hotel

Having spent virtually all my life living on the coast probably explains why I adore hotels which sit – literally – at the water’s edge. So, my stay at the brilliant white Christchurch Harbour Hotel got off to a good start when I saw the view it enjoys: out across Mudeford Quay to Hengistbury Head. [...]
