Our first guests two guests at Quay House and Quay Corner, Christchurch leave excellent reviews. Our guest in Quay Corner was there for the Christchurch Food Festival and our guest at Quay House was part of a large golfing group.
Quay Corner Review:
Lovey Stay at Quay Corner
I stayed with my son and two grand sons for the Christchurch Food Festival and had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable and cosy and had everything one could possibly want. The location was so convenient for all the facilitiesin the Town Centre and on the Quay. Next time I come, which hopefully will be soon I cannot wait to try the harbour Ferry and go to Mudeford and Hengistbury Hear. Dora
Quay House Review:
A real ‘find’.
Just returned from a five day golf tour in Dorset, a large group of us playing some brilliant courses in the area including my favourites, Parkstone and Broadstone.
However the real “find” on the trip was the accommodation we enjoyed in Christchurch at the recently refurbished “Quay House” Situated right next to the Priory, a large 6 bedroom period Georgian house couldn’t have been better located, three minutes stroll into the town centre in one direction and in other direction, just a short stroll from the peaceful and picturesque waterside area, a beautiful setting and home to all manner of small boats and birdlife. We were blessed with good weather which meant an evening stroll along the river bank was a real pleasure before sampling the catering delights that this delightful town has to offer. Special mention for the super dinner at the Kings Arms Hotel and a great meal at the Boathouse Restaurant overlooking the river. Quality of food and service in bothlocations was great.
In our group I was allocated the ground floor bedroom, next to the disabled cloakroom and wet room which effectively provided an excellent “en-suite”. The kitchen had all new modern appliances (loved the iced water outlet in the fridge) as part of a kitchen/ diner set up that comfortably seated our large group at one table for our breakfasts and the two “meals in” with the added benefit of a cook – Shaw Catering. A huge TV screen in the lounge surrounded by very comfortable sofas and tasteful soft furnishings all added to the evening enjoyment for our group reflecting on the golfing challenges of the day over a glass or two of vino.
Downsides? Well parking is a bit restricted but 4 cars can be securely parked behind electronic gates and there is otherwise roadside parking outside in Quay for which we were provided 24 hour parking permits. A very quiet road by the house but once out of the town, traffic was a bit heavy but only what would be expected for an area like this at the times we were travelling (local rush hour).
The only other downside was the general standard of my golf, but I guess that makes it a very good reason to go back and have another go.
Super courses and perfect location – will definitely go back!
