I first stayed at Marlins two years ago with my husband and daughter whilst she was attending an Open Day at Bournemouth University. I chose Marlins from the excellent. Trip Advisor Reviews. Since then we have stayed about four times, during out trips to move our daughter to and from University.
Our stay is always welcoming and local information forthcoming
The rooms are ensuite, clean and comfortable with lovely big towels. Room 1 is especially quiet being at the back of the Hotel.
The English breakfast is just right, not greasy and ample portions.
Bonuses are the free car parking, as the beach is 2 minutes walk away and town centre 5 minutes away, with shopping and restaurants.
We made the mistake of staying somewhere else in January as Marlins was booked or closed for a few weeks, never again, I would change my arrangements to fit in Marlins availability.
Oh lastly, don't forget the very reasonable price !
