The Chocolate Boutique (Day 1) continued of our #52sleeps road trip


Continued from part 1 here, this is my diary-style write up of our 52 sleeps road trip....

Where were we? Oh yes, dinner. We were hoping to try out a nearby tapas bar called Lolita's but it didn't open until 7pm (which is usually the kids bedtime), so we headed off to nearby Italian restaurant Amalfi's. It had some great reviews on trip advisor and we found it to be a nice place, with a friendly family run atmosphere and great, genuine, Italian food. 

Although we didn't stay for dessert (because we had a generous portion of chocolate awaiting us in our hotel bedrooms remember), we had eaten starter and mains. There was a big choice encompassing pasta, pizza, meat dishes and fish dishes as well as a whole host of specials. 

I had lemon chicken and capers which came with a side dish of vegetables, Richard had duck with back pepper sauce and mash, also with a side portion of vegetables. J had a huge pizza and D had a tagliatelle dish. 

Definitely worth booking ahead for Amalfi's though. We were lucky to get a table as we went as soon as they opened for the evening, but by the time we left, they were totally full. 

Despite a light rain shower, we did make it back to the beach in the evening. 


Bournemouth is beautiful. We had been before but that was many years ago pre-children. There are sandy beaches for miles, plenty to do to keep busy, but also quieter spots if that's what you prefer. 

Off to Cornwall tomorrow! Having had some lovely stays in Cornwall in the past which you can read about here and here, it will be interesting to see how the LateRooms.com stays will measure up. 

Quick note about breakfast at the chocolate boutique: as well as full english fry up, a chocolate pancake was also on the menu! And chocolate buttons to eat too! 

The bed proved to be just perfect for my back. A rare thing to find a bed as suitable as my own bed so I'm really pleased about that.
