Attractive hotel with olde worlde charm. We only stayed here for one night as we went to a family wedding nearby. Thom met us in reception and was very friendly, our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very nice to start our day with before travelling back home.

I had the misfortune to stay in Room 1 recently. The bathroom was totally disgusting, unclean and mouldy. The smell of damp carpet pervaded the room. The bedroom carpet has been like this for a long time as it is stained black. The bathroom is a converted corner of the room totally unsuitable for purpose, I am guessing there has been a problem with this room for some time as there is an old dehumidifier in the corner of the room? The shower would only give cold water as was the case with many of the rooms occupied by my travelling compnions. The bedroom furniture was broken. Myself and seven companions have vowed never to go near the place again!

mattyenton, Owner at The Yenton, responded to this reviewResponded 15 September 2009

I wasn't going to post an answer to this review but have had several emails about it so....

It wasn't room 1 it was room 2.
Room 2 was a grotty damp single that we had not touched since coming to the Yenton and seldom let, in this case it was used as the party arrived with more guests than they had booked for. The gentleman who left the review was offerred a room change after one night but declined to move.
The room is no longer a bedroom and is now a Health and Beauty salon.

Six of our family recently stayed at the Yenton and I can't speak highly enough about it. The staff are warm and friendly something us northerners love. Unike alot of the b & b's I reviewed before booking this one there is parking which is a definite must if you are driving. The cooked breakfast was really nice with everything made to order. The owner told us that the hotel is work in progress since they took it over 4 years ago, but even with this said it is very clean and very well located, you can walk into town in about 10mins and the beach is similar. If you don't want the hustle and bustle of Bournemouth town centre stay here. It is a very English B & B with gorgeous gardens and a lovely atmosphere. Those who have left negative reviews are obviously wanting the Hilton for the reasonable prices the Yenton charges.

We stayed just the one night at the Yenton, but wished it was longer. The service is very friendly and at the same time professional. The breakfast was excellent, the rooms light and well furnished. The garden is beautiful and the perfect spot to sit and relax. If you are looking for a nice quiet location that is still close to the centre and the beach this will take some beating.

Having stayed here many times over the past few years, we can say with some experience that this hotel is ideal for a break.

Owners Matt and Thom are always at hand, and nothing is too much trouble.

Despite it's proximity to the centre of Bournemouth the hotel and its beautiful grounds are very calming for the soul, particularly for us needing a break from London.

The rooms are extremely comfortable, well equiped, and the staff are friendly and helpful - our dog (they cater well for) also gets special attention!

Breakfast is cooked to order and sets us up well for a walk on the beach - the cliff top is only 2 mins away.

Highly recommended to all.
