Michael and Lynn Finlay and family are delighted to welcome you to The Rothesay. Our aim is provide traditional hospitality, and to offer our guests a relaxed and friendly service, with high quality bed and breakfast accommodation, so for whatever the reason, a stay at The Rothesay will be a truly memorable experience. We pride ourselves on treating each and every one of our guests as special, as featured on BBC Breakfast in 2006
We are located in the seaside village of Highcliffe in Dorset, in the former grounds of Highcliffe Castle, and are close to all amenities - award winning beaches, cliff top walks and many restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars.
We have a large private car park, a heated indoor swimming pool with sauna, relaxing patio, decked courtyard and gardens, and a comfortable lounge.
We are licensed to serve alcohol, so why not relax and enjoy a drink?
Five minutes drive away is the wonders of the New Forest with its ponies, deer, rivers and walks. Historic Christchurch with its harbour and priory, the fishing village of Mudeford, bustling Bournemouth, famous sailing centre Lymington, the Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site), and many other attractions, are all just a short drive away.
Open all year round, it all makes The Rothesay the perfect place to stay, whatever your interests, so come and treat yourself to a Highcliffe break – you deserve it.
