Just returned from a two night stay at The Park 24 what a gem of a find it is! We won't be staying anywhere else when we visit Bournemouth in future. Fiona and Chris where the perfect hosts, from the most amazing breakfast, to booking first class restaurants and taxis, nothing is too much trouble.. Their home is an oasis of calm you are welcomed in to. The high tea in the Wendy House was fab. Town is only a 10 minute walk away so no expensive parking charges. My advice...try it, you'll love it!

My partner & I wanted to take my mother away for her 75th birthday and her preferred location was Bournemouth. The Park 24 sounded ideal for a number of reasons: only two bedrooms are rented out, it is within walking distance of the town centre, and afternoon tea is laid on when you stay for 2 nights or more. Plus the house looked amazing on the website!

I can't do enough to sing the praises of this fantastic place. The owners/hosts - Fiona & Chris - made us feel as if we belonged there, and I must say Lula the dog and Henry the cat played a big part in that too! The accommodation was luxurious, the food amazing, and Fiona went out of her way to provide an excellent afternoon tea. She asked me in advance what my mother's favourite cake was, presented it to us with a candle, and hauled Chris into the living room to sing happy birthday to my mother!

I would love to visit in the summer and make use of the summerhouse in the garden.

I cannot fault this b&b and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms available, one with a king-size bed and one with a double. The king-size r...

Most amazing B&B accommodation I have ever stayed in. I had an exam the next day and really enjoyed everything on offer to help me relax, especially the luxury bathroom, with lovely deep bath, candles and Lush goodies! Owners were so welcoming and did everything possible to treat me to a memorable stay. There was relaxing music, variety of delicious things for breakfast, in the room there was fruit, chocolate, a robe, slippers and a coffee machine. I would recommend to anyone who wants to unwind and relax.

Me and my partner stayed here for four nights (we were invited to a wedding in Bournemouth), and we can only highly recommend this place!

Besides the nice accommodation (it is very calm and quiet, all perfectly arranged like at a 5 star hotel!), Fiona and Chris are just the best hosts you can imagine. While we enjoyed perfect privacy we also had several very nice and personal conversations, and some nice drinks, too :-). Food is gorgeous! Fiona had even baked a cake for us!

I think this is the best B&B we have ever been to!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write you review, especially after your wonderful holiday in the States. It was an absolute pleasure having you both to stay, and you were of course so lucky with the weather, breakfast in the gardens is perfect, but always dependant on the sunshine!
Looking forward to seeing you both again when you next visit Bournemouth.

Well what can I say, more like a serious boutique baby hotel than any bed and breakfast that we have ever stayed in. On arrival we were were we were offered a welcome drink in the sitting room which has been designed to the highest standard of comfort and style. Our bedroom really was luxurious with crisp white linen and huge comfy beds. The bathroom really had the wow factor with the extravagant mosaic tiles and the fantastic walk-in monsoon shower. Getting up in the morning to take a shower was really a treat!!! The breakfast was so wonderful. You could taste the freshness of the ingredients, which Fiona, our hostess, told us was bought from a local market. The attention to detail throughout our stay was quite unbelievable. A truly fabulous weekend away. We could not recommend this beautiful oasis more highly. We are already looking forward to the next time we can escape there for the weekend.

From the moment Fiona and Chris greeted us our stay at The Park 24 was a total delight. The bedrooms and ensuites are superb, the food delicious and the surroundings sumptuous. Afternoon tea in the garden was magical. We could have asked for no more.
