Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Have stayed here 3 times now, once with my husband and twice with friends and have never been disappointed, would happily stay again. Clean and fresh, Sue the landlady is lovely and breakfast is a good cooked/cold choice. The only bad thing is that I can't get down more often!

I phoned Sue to arrange the booking who took all our requirements on board and allocated us a family and three double rooms. I cannot fault the welcoming, rooms, service, cleanliness or breakfast - we were so impressed with our stay here and would highly recommend to others.

Stayed in Kingsley Hotel this weekend with another 13 friends for a visit to Bournemouth and the landlady gave the special lady a box of chocolate and a bottle of champagne. What a welcome. It is a very clean place, has all the usual facilities but also tea and coffee in the room, shower was good and strong, clean towels and nice touches to the room like nice bedding etc. The owner is very friendly and relaxed, we were not pushed to check out early, could leave our luggage there for as long as we wanted and could change in the rooms after visiting the beach even though we'd checked out. Breakfast is really good, properly cooked full English with all the trimmings, lots of choice of cereals too. The girls serving were also very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was meant to be until 10 but they let us come down late and still cooked us the breakfast. And the landlady was happy to book us taxis and was very chatty and friendly. Definitely would recommend. It is also only a 2 min walk to the beach.

Booked at short notice whilst working in the area, The Kingsley Hotel didn't disappoint. A friendly reception from the landlady, who took the time to remember my name and where I came from. Clean, huge room, great breakfast and impeccable service. My only complaint, I only stayed for one night!!

We were moved here after the original B&B double booked us and are we glad they did, we had a very warm welcome from the owner who showed us to our room which was spacious, light and very clean. Breakfast was excellent nothing was to much trouble. Great location not too far from beach and very quiet at night. So good we have already booked for next year, the owner is so lovely we started the holiday as strangers and came away as friends.

We only stayed for one night but got a warm and personal welcomed and could choose ourselves which room we preferred of two different double rooms (we chose the one with a bathtub).

The room was neat and clean. Nothing extravagant but very good value for money.

Good breakfast with a selection of fresh fruit and berries.

Stayed here with our 8 month old son for two nights. Owner very welcoming on arrival and let us in to our room even though we were early and it had not finished being cleaned. Parking is directly outside the hotel. Owner was very helpful in giving directions to the beach and into Bournemouth. Beach 5/10 minutes away, Bournemouth centre nice 30/40 minute walk along the beach front. Room was very nice and had everything we needed. Room was on two levels, double bed, TV, wardrobe, travel cot (provided) on 'upper floor' then you go down a few steps to a little 'den'! With a single bed, TV and the bathroom! Very useful for putting baby to bed upstairs then watching TV downstairs! Breakfast in the morning was fab, lots of cereals and fresh fruit and a made to order cooked breakfast, which seemed grilled not fried. A high chair provided for our son and he was able to have a variety of things for his breakfast too! We had a fab stay and I would definitely recommend this to others. Especially if you have a young baby, the room lay out was particularly good! (Ask for room 11 on the top floor) And to top it off the weather was lovely! :-) thank you Kingsley hotel, we will be back!
