Kantara Guest House
Ranked #65 of 131 Bournemouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We had a really good stay at the guest house. The room was exceptionally clean, the breakfast was just what we required and the hotel was very quiet. Not the best place for a family with a disabled child or parent (as I am) as the family rooms are on the top floor. We intend to return as soon as possible, so I didn't find it such an issue.

We stayed in Kantara for a week, exploring the jurrasic coast and the nearby cities. What is really positive about this place is breakfast, a good choice to please everybody´s taste, a quiet location opposite a park, proximity of the rail and coach stations and the owner Rose who is very helpful. On the other hand if I compare this bed and breakfast place with those in Bristol and Gloucester, I must admit that the rooms in the other two places were much better equipped and larger. The bathroom in room 4 was a bit of a surprice as it looked like the one in a static caravan, though I must say that in the static homes I was staying in UK it was even bigger and more comfortable. The shower corner has only a curtain which does not reach the floor resulting in water splashing all over the floor. There is no table in the room and the wi-fi connection on the first floor is so weak that if you really need the internet connection badly you have to the groundfloor corridor.So all in all not a bad choice but nothing special.

Room Tip: I would not recommend room 4.

Thank you Rose, you helped our stag weekend flow really smoothly. Clean, comfortable, excellent value for money. Location is great, parking fab. This accommodation is well kept up with all mod cons you could need.

I would recommend this to couples, families and party groups. Very well thought out room allocations - so don't be put off if you think it is just hen or stag do place.

Well done. : )

Room Tip: Check if you want en-suite or not, don't just presume.

Very clean and fresh smelling, nicely decorated, the beds are comfortable with nice en-suite shower room, fresh towels and a nice tea and coffee tray supplied. A bit far from the beach but you could walk it in around 20mins, good for parking and quiet area at night. Would recommend it and definately stay there again.

I have just spent 3 months at the Kantara guesthouse in Bournemouth for four nights each week whilst on a Business Assignment. I wish there was the same quality accommodation and prices on all my trips across the UK. It was also important that I could sleep peacefully given that I have been so being so busy and so this for me has been the perfect B&B at the right price. I have been absolutely delighted with the accommodation and I could not recommend the Kantara and Rose's hospitaity more highly. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 4 if it is available.

My boyfriend and I went to see an event at the BIC in Bournemouth. That evening according to the website I booked this guesthouse on said that Bournemouth was busy that evening, we were expecting to pay sky high to stay overnight.
This guest house came up and we were pleased to pay the price. I will be honest, I was dubious as this as the cheapest but I was very surprised when I arrived to the welcoming lady at the guesthouse who also sorted us with a taxi and was very helpful when we asked about the BIC :) (sorry I don't remember her name!) the room was lovely and very clean and the bed was comfy.
Parking was good as we parked right outside the house and felt safe leaving the car there.
If I was to go to Bournemouth (which I do because it's a lovely place) I would stay there again for a good price.
