Kings Arms, Christchurch
Muddy says: This beautiful Georgian manor makes the perfect pied-à-terre to discover the delights of Christchurch and even has its very own award-winning restaurant.
Oooh! Isn’t it pretty? This gorgeous little spot is The Kings Arms in Christchurch, Dorset, an award-winning 20-room Georgian boutique hotel.
All of the rooms boast super luxe Egyptian cotton sheets, White Company toiletries and 24-hour room service, so you can snuggle down and relax overlooking either the beautiful courtyard or out over towards the ancient Christchurch Priory.
The hotel also has its very own lawn bowling green and is mere steps away from the Norman ruins of Christchurch Castle and the River Avon.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll absolutely love The Kings Arms Restaurant. Previously a winner of the Michelin Bib Gourmand (for three consecutive years no less), it’s ethos of locally-sourced fresh produce – with a modern twist – has made it a firm favourite of Christchurch’s foodie scene and is managed by the well-respected Chef Patron, Alex Aitken. There’s also the option for private dining for that super special occasion as well.
For a sneaky little nightcap, The Bar serves up custom cocktails and even has house DJs on Friday and Saturday nights as well. Don’t miss happy hour from 5pm – 7pm and 9pm – 10pm daily!
Love it? Then how about planning your wedding here? The hotel can cater for up to 96 for a wedding breakfast and 120 for a reception.
