Ride the waves

Captain's Club may be the pearl in the oyster of Dorset, but we also have some hidden treasure of our own moored up right outside on the River Stour.

All hands on deck ready to discover

Hospitality on the water

How many indulging hotels do you know who not only have their own moorings but also have a luxury 34ft motor cruiser attached to one of them? That’s because we’re the only hotel in the UK to have one, not that we’re blowing our own horn but it forms part of the unique experience you’ll find during your stay at Captain’s Club in Christchurch. Step on board ‘Nauti Girl’ and cast off from outside the hotel with you own personal skipper and the crew. Feel the wind in her sails as you leisurely cruise down the River Stour with a glass of champagne in hand, crossing Christchurch Bay as you go. For the adventurers among you, take her to sea and stretch her legs – cruise to Brownsea Island, or see the Needles and the coloured sands of Alum Bay on the Isle of Wight. Tuck into a freshly prepared lunch or an indulgent afternoon tea – you’re living life, sit back and enjoy it. ‘Nauti Girl’ is ready for you to charter between mid-June and September for both guests and non residents for an hour or two, or a whole day – we understand that nobody wants a unique experience like this to end. Treat your family, bring your VIP friends or that special someone – this is one date they will never forget.


Moor up for an indulging stay at Captain’s Club Hotel in Dorset. We’re not just talking cars – you can also rock up in your own boat and lay down anchor right alongside ours. Given our magnificent waterside location on the banks of the River Stour in Christchurch, with the open water of The Channel just a short sail away, we’re in the hot spot for guests exploring Dorset and The South Coast. There are not many hotels that invite guests to moor up on their own private moorings right outside – it’s what makes us unique – we were never one to follow a crowd.
