We have just returned from a lovely hen weekend in Bournemouth, made even better by our stay at Kantara guest house and the most accommodating landlady Rose. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well equipped. The breakfast was classed as continental, but there was plenty of variety from pain chocolate to amazing summer fruit salads! We had 5 cars and...

Lovely comfortable place to stay. Were in town for a gig and was suited perfectly between train station and the O2 Academy. Rooms weren't ensuite, and 2 flights of stairs wasn't great, but that can't be helped. Plentiful tea and coffee in the room and a well stocked bar downstairs ☺ Was the cheapest B&B we could find in town... More

Having stayed at this wonderful guest house twice before, I cannot fault the service and more importantly the Proprietor, Rose! She goes above and beyond to help not only make your stay a welcome one but her before and after care, correspondence and sorting bookings out (when needing to change things) is second to none!
