Chocolate hotel opens in Bournemouth

Chocoholics looking to stay in Bournemouth now have two properties to stay following the launch of the Chocolate Box B&B.

The 13-bedroom business joins sister property, the 15-bedroom Chocolate Boutique hotel, which had a starring role in the Channel 4 series Three in a Bed. Both properties are owned by the Wilton family.

Gerry Wilton is a chocolatier who launched one of the first companies to import chocolate foundations to the UK. His daughter, 26-year-old Leoni, is the brainchild of the Chocolate Box.

"I have grown up literally living and breathing chocolate," she said. "When my family opened the Chocolate Boutique hotel in 2006, we created a luxurious place for chocolate lovers from around the world to come and enjoy chocolate, create their own chocolates and even paint portraits with it.

"The Chocolate Box offers equally high end accommodation, but with a more laid-back B&B format."

The property features an event space called Chocadence, where a variety of chocolate party packages are offered.
