Recently back for another year on business in Boscombe (the seventh year I've stayed at the Clarendon Lodge) and Roger and Elizabeth were as welcoming as ever. Everything you could wish for in an English B&B - peaceful, spotlessly clean, good facilities, great location a few minutes' walk from a beautiful sea front, delicious breakfast cooked to order each morning, and nothing too much trouble for the proprietors. Big corporate hotels are all very well, but I'd choose this instead every time for its peace and quiet, friendliness and personal touch. Highly recommended. Every intention of returning next year.
