Stayed here for one night this week. Check in was pleasant, room was small but clean and tidy. Comfy bed for a good nights sleep, didn't hear a thing !! Well furnished place, WiFi signal was strong so worked fine. My first booking here, but would come back whenever in area. Paid £30 for the night, great value.

This hotel/b&b is advertised as a 4 star but it most definitely isn't. It's more of a 2 or 3 star accommodation and should be advertised as such. Here are some of things that would put me off staying again: 1) The reception area stinks of wet dog when you come in. 2) There is very limited parking and so... More

B&Bs are all about attention to detail and aside from a slightly wiffy smell from the toilet that was there for my whole stay (room number 1 - hence 4 stars instead of 5) this place is very well managed. The manager is courteous and polite, very efficient, and the English breakfast is perfectly cooked. They were also very helpful... More

Breakfast was included and was everything you wanted. You can park behind hotel and its 1 minute from restaurants, 5 minutes to the park to walk the dogs in the morning, 10 minutes to... More

Great location, great value. We've never stayed in a B&B before, we were pleasantly surprised by our visit. There is limited parking at the rear where we left the car. We were made to feel most welcome. The facilities are very clean. Paid a little more to have the full English which was worth it. Loads of restaurants in the... More

We needed to be near Bournemouth due to a family bereavement, so we needed to be very central whilst have access to the local area. The rooms are very clean, well equipped and comfortable - no complaints at all. Breakfast for £5 is great value how anyone can say that it is not enough I have no idea! Showers are... More

I have nothing but praise for this place. The owners, Jorge and Isabel, are both pleasant people. The standard of decoration is excellent. The vegetarian breakfast was satisfactory and at £5 a good price. But what really amazed me is the cleanliness; the place is spotless. I can also add that the bed was comfortable and made up every day... More
