What can I say?
I have stayed in this hotel on at least 20 occassions, stayed in 6 different rooms, with my family and without, arrived at all hours, and never ever been dissappointed.

I love it and so do my kids, the chefs special toast (?) is still talked about, and whenever we go to Bourmouth it's Marlins hotel or nothing.

I have travelled the country with my job and this BnB sets the standard that very few live up to.

Keep up the good work guys.

We chose Marlins for a one night theatre stay. We were warmly welcomed & shown to our ground floor room. It was spacious, well equipped & clean. The shower room was spotless. We slept well on a very comfortable bed. The heating was on all the time we were there. The breakfast was very good with lovely sausages. We will stay again.

We overnighted here while visiting our student daughter in Bournemouth. What a great place to stay. The best thing for me was an indefinable something which meant I slept really well, very unusual for me when away from home for the first night. Helped of course by a very comfortable bed, and a relaxing bedroom with great attention to detail. The full English in the morning was superb. Highly recommended.

We found this at the last minute and were very impressed my wife works in the Hotel industry for a World wide brand and found the service personal and friendly the room was extremely clean and well cared for, a fantastic full english breakfast was served in a lovely breakfast room. This Hotel is full of TLC and it shows.
We shall be back for sure and thank Neil for his hospitality even waiting up late for us after our delayed arrival. Alovely little Hotel in a great location
