Community Living for Men

Hamilton Hall, 1 Carysfort Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH1 4EJ

Community Living for Gay Men offering rooms within a shared residential home at Hamilton Hall, Bournemouth.

Hamilton Hall is a large Victorian house that has always been a boarding house for most of its life and turned into a hotel in the 1960's.

In the late 1980's it was converted into a Care Home for the elderly and was eventually re sold in March 2000 to John Bellamy who then turned it back into a hotel and it opened in July 2000 as a Sexual, Self and Spiritual development retreat style hotel for mind, body and soul of men - primarily gay and bisexual men, and he has run it ever since.

After more than 15 years running it as one of the most popular and talked about gay mens hotels in the UK and after starring in the TV programme 3 IN A BED to huge acclaim - Hamilton Hall is slowly changing - accepting live in guests - offering a Community Living Space for men over the age of 50 .
