The room was generally clean and the shower was good. I didn't have the breakfast, so can't comment. The wifi worked. That is about all the positives, I'm afraid. First of all, the most fundamental requirement of a B&B is that it enables guests to get a decent night's sleep. Kantara put me in a room at the top of...

Booked a 2 night stay late Friday afternoon and arrived around 6pm. We were warmly greeted by the owner and shown to our room, the room was light and airy and well set out. We really enjoyed our stay and would return if visiting bournemouth again, the only downside was the ensuite in room 4 which is more like a...

Rose is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The room is decorated beautifully. It was very clean and well presented. Facilities were great. Fridge, tea and coffee, wardrobe, drawers, hairdryer, towels and soap. There is an iron and ironing board on the landing. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Breakfast was great, loads of choice and good service. Would definitely recommend.

We booked the Kantara b&b a couple of days before heading down to Bournemouth. There was loads of free on street parking right outside the b&b, it is far enough away from the centre that I can't see parking being a problem even in the summer. The walk into town is along the cliff tops and takes around 20 minutes....

My husband and me stayed here for a long birthday weekend end of August. I booked the room over the phone previously. On arrival rose was very welcoming and happy to help with any query about going out, taxis and getting to the beach. It is only a short 10 min walk to the beach and probably 15 mins to...

We stayed here last week for 3 nights with 3 children. They had their own room on the top floor with an en suite. We had room 1 with shared bathrooms. The bathrooms were very clean and modern. I think our favourite part of the stay was the breakfast. You could be extremely naughty or healthy or a bit of...

Having just returned from a 4 night stay at the Kantara in Bournemouth, I was very pleased with the guest house. As a child I stayed in the same guest house (25 years ago) and I was returning to take my own family. Although the guest house is now run by different people you couldn't fault the owners commitment to...

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...

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...
