The Yenton is a small private hotel comprising two houses built in the 1930s (with many additions) adjacent to each other and set in an acre of beautiful gardens on Bournemouth’s East cliff, close to the cliff top, beaches and town centre. Our car park can be used by guests free of charge.

We cater for Bed and Breakfast, with local Dorset produce. Relax in our bar lounge, with open fire and comfortable leather sofas.

Our bedrooms offer a mixture of sizes (priced accordingly) and vary from traditional through to contemporary and boutique. All rooms offer an en-suite with either Bath or Shower and have Televisions and tea and coffee making facilities. Our larger rooms now feature flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations.

Our award winning gardens are a beautiful setting for a Wedding and we are licensed for both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies. We also cater for Birthday parties, anniversaries, Christenings and any other celebration.

For business visitors, the Gervis room is ideal for Seminars, training courses and meetings.

Breakfast is served in our Conservatory Restaurant overlooking the gardens. Your waiter or waitress will take your order for tea or coffee. Help yourself to the choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, seeds and juices from the Buffet table, or treat yourself to a full, freshly cooked breakfast (meat or vegetarian).
