We stayed for two nights and the rooms are just what you need. It's anything but the Ritz but the rooms are clean and tidy and the beds are comfy. Were glad we stayed in boscombe as we went to a lovely Thai restaurant called koh Thai tapa's and the beech is lovely.

On our short holiday we were very welcome by Norman who made us feel completely at home. Near the beach and restaurants. Reasonable price. The room was complete with description of local amenities. Delicious breakfast. We certainly would like to go back.

My other half and I spent 2 nights here and we had a very nice stay. The room was very nice, the WiFi was very good and the breakfasts were expertly cooked! It is a short walk to Boscombe Beach and Pier, and also to some excellent restaurants which come recommended by the BnB itself.

Everything from the spacious immaculate en-suite bedroom, to the extremely comfortable bed to the amazing cooked breakfast of locally sourced, gourment level bacon and eggs and mushrooms and home-made fruit salad and the warm and friendly reception from Gill and Norman.

My other half and I were looking for something close to the beach for the airshow and we came upon this little gem. The room that we had, #3, was a wonderful size, spacious but cosy at the same time with a lovely little ensuite shower room. The amenities in the room were welcoming.

Just returned home after spending a few nights. Friendly atmosphere and room was immaculate, food was wonderful and Gill and Norman are amazing hosts, after mentioning it was my 40th birthday the day before we arrived Gill got me some beautiful flowers. We will definitely return next year and recommend to friends and family.
