The luxurious Green House is a beautiful wedding and civil ceremony venue. The hotel opened to critical acclaim in July 2010 and has 32 beautiful guest rooms, a chic bar and an award winning restaurant. The hotel also boasts private events rooms, beautiful gardens and is situated a stone's throw from Bournemouth's stunning beach.
Within months of opening, the hotel was voted number one boutique eco hotel in the World (British Airways Highlife Magazine) and Small Hotel of the Year at the Bournemouth Tourism Awards. In April 2011 it was listed by The Independent as one of the top 100 UK wedding venues and Wedding Magazine have named the Green House in their Top 100 best UK wedding venues again this year.
In 2011 we were awarded a Gold merit by the Green Business Tourism Scheme and were listed as the only UK hotel in the Guardian's Green Travel List 2011. We were also awarded the AA Eco hotel of the year award 2012- 2013. We were also crowned Considerate Hotel of the Year in 2013.
Our highly acclaimed Chef, Andrew Hilton and his team bring something very special to the Bournemouth food scene at the Green House. Seasonal produce is sourced locally and everything is freshly prepared even the bread is baked on site. When you eat with us you will see why it has been described as 'the most innovative and exciting food we've tasted' (The Bournemouth Echo) and why we won Silver in the Eating Out category of the Dorset Tourism Awards.
The wine list holds organic and biodynamic wines and also includes local sparkling wine from Furleigh Estate and English Oak vineyards.
Both The Green House and Arbor restaurant are recommended by the Michelin Guide.
