Best in Class - Rating 5/5

This unpretentious guest house offered everything that could be expected in this price range to a very high standard.Bed was comfortable, with a good firm mattress, everything was immaculately clean, breakfast offered plenty of choice and was well cooked, with mills for pepper and sea salt on every table, WiFi had a sensible password and download speeds in the 70-90 Mbps range.The owners were friendly and welcoming without being over-familiar.

Breakfast with a Capital \'B\'... - Rating 5/5

A good find this one, just a 5-minute walk to the Castle where we were attending a wedding reception so everyone was able to enjoy the evening.The accommodation is kept to a high standard by Sue and Keith, the dynamic duo, our rooms were all clean, comfortable, airy and very quiet.I do not have a lot of B &B experiences with which to compare but the second 'B' has on occasion left room for improvement but Castle Lodge did not disappoint with a good selection on the sideboard and four choices of cooked breakfast, great job!Sue and Keith are wonderful hosts, he's a London lad so it stands to reason...!Highly recommended.

Lovely room and a warm welcome - Rating 5/5

Warm welcome from Sue. Very tastefully decorated room - someone has a good eye. Spotlessly clean with a nice modern ensuite. But best of all:the breakfast was excellent - a wide choice and the staff were friendly and attentive. Good location:less than ten minutes walk to the beach and coast path via Highcliffe Castle's grounds which was fantastic after a day of sitting in meetings. Would definitely use again if staying in the area and have no hesitation in recommending.

6 of us stayed with Sue &Keith for the second time. The B&B is so pretty and bright. We had 4 rooms between us and each one was immaculate, with lovely touches like body lotion and liquid soap. Huge choice for breakfast, perfectly cooked to order. The poached eggs were perfection! Sue and Keith are so friendly and are a wealth of local information. A quiet beach and Highcliffe Castle lies just behind the B&B, with The Lord Bute &The Oaks a stones throw away for lunch or evening meals,and the B&B is also perfectly located for Christchurch and Mudeford.Fabulous stay once again, thank you both.

We left wishing we had booked for a longer stay and will definitely stay at Castle Lodge when we return to the Bournemouth area. Sue and Keith (owners) made us feel so welcome. The room was pristine and the breakfast was excellent. I cannot speak more highly other than to say we will be recommending Castle Lodge to anybody planning to visit our family who are now living in the area.

High class High quality - Rating 5/5

My Mum and I stayed for 2 nights, and can't wait to go back. Sue and Keith are wonderful, and very attentive. Breakfast was perfection, with free range Eggs hatched by their own Chickens, a good selection of cereals, fresh fruit etc. The poached Eggs were to die for, and an ample size cooked breakfast also. The beds were so comfy in the twin room, we didn't want to get out of them, The hotel is situated in a beautiful area, with lots of sights to visit. Would highly recommend this hotel to other holiday makers.

Fantastic B&B, great service! - Rating 5/5

Stayed for a wedding at Highcliffe over the August bank holiday weekend. Hotel was lovely and so were Sue and Keith who checked us in. The room was large and comfortable with a bath which was much appreciated. The best part I have to say was the breakfast, the food was fantastic and the service was even better. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel most highly.
