I stay in the Bournemouth area regularly and my usual B&B was not available. I knew this hotel as I used to live opposite. The owner was friendly on arrival and welcoming. The room was spacious, light and clean. Shower was slightly small but function-able. Nice size 32" flat screen TV on the wall. No tea / coffee facility in...

4 of us stayed there paid £190 for 2 nights clean & basic, free tea coffee toast orange juice in the morning courtyards with a hammock seating area etc, so it cost us us less than £25 each a night, I mean what can you expect for that money, staff was friendly enough, got what we payed for happy

After reading some scary reviews it's hard not to have some Concerns when you've already booked. That said perspective is a wonderful thing. When you pay £40 for two people including free parking and some toast and juice in the morning the perspective kicks in. Yes it has some faults, which place doesn't ? however these are minor compared to...

I stayed here 9/9/16 for 2 nights. The couple that own it are brilliant and polite. The rooms are neat and tidy. A few mins from the beach. I enjoyed the stay and would go back. Fab bars a few mins away that serve wonderful food. You are a few mins from Bournemouth it's self. Taxes are cheap as chips...

We stayed here for a quick stop off as we had an early flight from Bournemouth and had to travel down from Birmingham. First impression was that they seemed relatively friendly asking lots of questions about our stay. The lady who welcomed us recommended that we pop down to the beach as there was an air show to which we...

WE have proof. We investigated and have cctv footage of you 3 girls coming downstairs drunk... with your purses (that you said were in the room) containing your money!! They were OPEN and the girl with black hair, black vest and grey jumper dropped her purse in the hallway. The entire contents, including bank cards, were thrown all over the...

I booked a room for me, my partner and our 2 year old. I contacted the owner before booking to check that the room I was booking would be large enough for the double bed provided and a cot bed for our daughter. The next option up was to have a single bed for her but she still uses her...

So your 2 year old daughter was going to climb out of the travel cot, scale up the side of the chest of drawers, prise open the window with a crowbar and leap out! All of this while you are in bed next to her. You were going to decide if this was a likelihood over a nice dinner and...

Boscombe has 7 miles of beautiful sandy beaches, fabulous restaurants, cafes and bars and a feeling of community and safety. It is one mile from Bournemouth centre with shops, clubs and nightlife in abundance. I will defend Boscombe and assure you that NOBODY here would swap with you to live in LUTON !! Boscombe is quirky, fascinating and alluring....and we...

4 of us visited the Hotel. The staff were very welcoming from the start. Able to put our beers in the fridge. Nice and chilled for a few drinks in a great garden. We got two rooms and it was just what we needed. Somewhere to shower, get dressed, have a few beers and sleep. Overall, a great stay and...

We recently stayed here for my sisters hen party and everything was excellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable and nothing was too much trouble at all, they even arranged our taxis for us. They have a nice garden area out the back and it's in a perfect location. Really good value for money and I would highly recommend.

For the money. Position is fantastic both for the beach and town. We had a fab time :-) 5 mins from the beach and the surf shops. Staff very nice. Looks like it's recently been refurbished. Not a romantic hideaway but a good find.
