Friday, 22nd July the start of the school summer holidays.  What will you as a family do to keep your children occupied for your family holiday?  Children absolutely love the beach, my best memories of my two sons being happy are when we rented a beach hut on Bournemouth Beach.  The good old fashioned beach hut is still has a big part to play in family holidays.  Bournemouth have hundreds of huts lining the promenade, painted gaily in primary colours.  Children dash to and fro, from the huts to the sand and the sea.  Hundreds of sandcastles in an amazing range of sizes and designs spring from the sand, many happy Dads can be seen, digging and creating with their offspring.  A moat that fills up when the tide comes rushing in is a popular feature.

Mums sit and relax, pop the kettle on in the hut when they fancy a cuppa.  No paper cups with horrible weak tea when you have a beach hut.  Position is important, although you are never far from the public conveniences it is a good idea to check out how far for any emergencies.  The same goes for the ice cream kiosk.  Don’t risk the lollies and ice creams melting on a blisteringly hot day with a long trek back to the hut.

Bournemouth beaches are well served by the RNLI Lifeguards, there are many posts and the lifeguards patrol the promenades, sand and the water in a craft between their posts.

Many folk think that being a courier on a coach holiday or day trip is easy, believe me it is not.   Just about anything can happen, you have to be prepared for any eventuality and be jolly every minute.

At the Queens Hotel we are preparing for our first coach holiday and there is much excitment in the team.  We so want our first holiday to go well.  We have organised what we believe to be the best coach driver in Dorset to fetch our guests from Essex and Kent.  Richard is a man you would want on your side should anything go wrong.  He has a very sunny disposition, is extremely knowledgeable on local sights and history.  He even manages to tell some half decent jokes that you haven’t heard 10 times before.

The journey to the hotel will be comfortable, our coach has ample leg room, a WC, there will be newspapers on board and some old fashioned boiled sweets to chew.  We have chosen the City of Chichester as the lunch stop.  It is a beautiful city with a stunning Cathdral.   Next stop Bournemouth and a warm and friendly greeting from the reception team and porter.  A reviving cup of tea and biscuits will be served in the bar whilst your suitcases are taken to your en-suite rooms.

Once our guests have unpacked there will be time for a stroll along the cliff top before dinner in the award winning Queens Hotel Restaurant.

There are so many places to visit on the free days The Russell Cotes Museum is  close by and very interesting.  Monkey World in Bere Regis is well worth a visit, they are doing amazing work on their breeding and rescue programmes.
