As part of the investment, the revamped venue on Stourwood Avenue has received a complete design overhaul, with all eight bedrooms being newly refurbished.


The hotel is ideally located on Southbourne cliff top. Family-friendly and with fantastic sea views, it’s the perfect place for a relaxing stay, or as a base for exploring the south coast. Boscombe Promenade is within easy walking difference, while Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole are only a short drive away. For those looking to explore, the New Forest and wonderful walks along the Jurassic Coast are both within easy reach, as well as English Heritage sites such as Christchurch Castle and Norman House.


With free Wi-Fi available, and a cosy Greene King pub downstairs, the Spyglass & Kettle offers a home away from home. The pub menu boasts delicious, homely food, including signature steak dishes and a great selection of burgers. Pub classics are also available, with two dishes from £11.99 all day Monday-Saturday, including lasagne, cod and chips and beef and ale pie.


Each room has a cosy and luxurious Hypnos bed, enabling guests to enjoy a supremely comfortable sleep, so they can wake up feeling well-rested and refreshed.


Joanne Botta, general manager at the Spyglass & Kettle hotel, said: “The Spyglass & Kettle is the perfect location to stay when visiting the dreamy beaches and many attractions that the south coast and surrounding areas have to offer. We have received great feedback from our guests, who say that they love the homely feel of the hotel and accompanying pub.
