Very well run small hotel very near to town centre and Bic centre. Paul and Avril did everything to make our stay comfortable yet again. Breakfast choice excellent. Exceptionally clean. We have stayed there three times and if we want accommodation in Bournemouth we would always check to see it they had a vacancy first.

Blue Palms is set 5 minutes away from all the major attractions, transport links, shops and restaurants however its position at the top of a hill on a side street means it is very peaceful.

Paul and Avril were the best hosts, nothing was too much trouble even my fussy breakfast needs!
