Marlins is superbly located just off the seafront it appear in Bournemouth. At first, I was slightly suspicious of the great price of just £32 but after reading such positive reviews I saw that the single room is advertised very openly as being small. The hotel itself is absolutely immaculate and "yes" the hotel room is a small but it is brilliantly appointed with good facilities and everything you need for an overnight stay. Added to which, parking is complimentary on-site which in itself, in Bournemouth, would be quite expensive. I was warmly welcomed by the owner, Michael was extremely accommodating and happy to make any restaurant reservations etc that I needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending marlins to any future travellers and the small room for the bargain price is room number 6. I will definitely be back and won't be letting any of my immediate work colleagues be aware of this little treasure. Breakfast didn't disappoint and was a huge freshly cooked traditional English one with copious amounts of cereal, juice & freshly prepared cafetere coffee. The following day I checked out but had further meetings in Bournemouth and Michael very kindly allowed me to leave my car there saving me further money. My trip to Bournemouth was very successful and all at an amazing price-don't tell too many people about this treasure! I hope you find this précis useful and make sure that you write one similar if you have a similar experience. Best of luck :)
