From M25 or A34, exit onto M3 southbound. Then take the M27 westbound towards Bournemouth. M27 becomes A31 which branches off to Bournemouth at Ringwood. Follow the A338 Wessex Way dual carriageway to first roundabout and follow signs left for Bournemouth Railway Station. Go left again at the next roundabout into Holdenhurst Road. Go past the Texaco garage, Halfords and Staples on your left and at the mini roundabout, double back on yourself. Take the left into St Swithuns Road immediately past the pedestrian crossing. Approximately 75 yards in, follow ST Swithuns Road to the right. Frances Road is now on your left and the Lea Hurst Hotel can be seen on your right.
We are literally a 3 or 4 minute walk across the road.
