Positive Reviews

Ideal location, close to the town centre.

A number of guests comment on the fact that the B&B is within a five minute walk of Bournemouth town centre, as well as the main rail station. Guests comment that the quieter, residential area in which the B&B is situated is lovely, with the convenience of the proximity to the centre of town.

Good value for money.

The general feeling seems to be that the B&B offers excellent value for money. Rooms are reportedly spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with a number of guests commenting on the large and spaciously well-appointed bedrooms.

Good breakfast and decent Wi-Fi.

The breakfast provided seems to be of a good value, with good vegetarian options available. A couple of reviews state that the Wi-Fi provided is good, seemingly with a strong connection throughout the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms a bit on the small side.

Some rooms are described as small, with guests suggesting that small double rooms would serve better as single bedrooms. However, guests do add that they are not generally inconvenienced by the size of the rooms.

Mixed reviews regarding staff.

There seem to be mixed reviews concerning staff. In general, it seems as though single users, couples and smaller groups find the service and staff experience to be pleasant, whereas larger groups seem to feel as though staff see them as an inconvenience.

Mainly a stag and hen do hotel.

The B&B seems to be largely a base for stag and hen dos, and seems to marketed as such on certain websites. This may deter certain travellers. However, those attending stag and hen dos at the B&B suggest that it is a quieter venue than they would expect.
