    About

    An excellent boutique hotel on Dorset s World Heritage Coast, The Kings Arms Hotel is located in the centre of Christchurch overlooking its Victorian bowling green and castle ruins. The hotel has a handsome Georgian facade with an elegant entrance. Once inside, the interiors are beautifully styled using a combination of classic and contemporary fabrics and furnishings. The ambience is comfortable and relaxed, the staff are willing and friendly, and it s nice to see that the place doesn t take itself too seriously. The bedrooms range from bronze to platinum which means you can choose a room to suit your purpose and budget, whether you re using nearby Bournemouth Airport, exploring the Dorset coast or planning a romantic break. There are iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi in every bedroom. The Kings Arms Hotel also has an award-winning restaurant, which has been awarded a prestigious Michelin Bib Gourmand for two consecutive years. The restaurant is known for carefully sourcing local ingredients, including wonderful produce from The New Forest and seafood from the south coast. The latest addition to the Kings Arms is The Bar, a vibrant and modern venue that boasts an exciting 15 Mile Cocktail Menu, with a Kings twist on classic favourites, including the Britini and a Once Upon a Cosmo. The Bar s contemporary atmosphere shifts from day to night with ease. Featuring an elegant pewter-top bar, surrounded by plush stools, relaxed stylish furnishings, and sleek lighting, The Bar is a great place to catch up with a friend, or head to for pre-dinner drinks. The Kings Hotel is ideally situated for exploring Dorset and the surrounding area, including the Heritage Coast, The New Forest, many ancient sites and associations with the likes of Thomas Hardy and T E Lawrence.
