Absolutely fabulous place! Situated in a leafy street with pretty gardens yet only a short walk into central Bournemouth. Charming hosts who couldn’t do enough for you! Welcome Basket, use of kitchen and facilities. Helpful advice provided. Everything in well-stocked room to a very high standard eg soft sheets, toiletries, drinks and snacks. Would definitely visit again and would highly recommend! Thanks David and Pumpkin x

I liked that parking is free (loads of hotels in Bournemouth charge up to £30 p/n for parking!). The property is stunning as the owner has spent 10 years renovating the property himself. He really puts a lot of effort into making guests stay a great one. It is immaculate and spotless which is a great comfort. Wifi is superfast. Great location and close to town centre and beach but still in a nice tranquil area (I have found many B'mouth Hotels to be very noisy from night time rowdiness)!. I normally book via another website (where the property has fabulous reviews) but it was cheaper on Expedia so I thought I would give them a try and was pleased with the ease of booking process. So I will be returning again with the wife to make us of the Spa Bath which is truely spectacular :)
