Carlton Lodge is a lovely place to stay and I really enjoyed the traditional B&B feel. We arrived later that expected due to M25 traffic two, adults and three children. We had a warm welcome from Gill and she showed us to our rooms. The rooms were clean and spacious with an easy to access toilet and shower. The children... More

Visited whilst attending Bournemouth Art college open day which is a short drive away. Large, clean and well equipped room, comfy bed and nice and quiet. A short walk down to the seafront and some recommended restaurants. Huge cooked breakfast and super choice of cereals, yoghurts, amazing muffins and fresh fruit. The owners could not be more welcoming, helpful and... More

My other half and I spent 2 nights here and we had a very nice stay. The room was very nice, the WiFi was very good and the breakfasts were expertly cooked! It is a short walk to Boscombe Beach and Pier, and also to some excellent restaurants which come recommended by the BnB itself.

Everything from the spacious immaculate en-suite bedroom, to the extremely comfortable bed to the amazing cooked breakfast of locally sourced, gourment level bacon and eggs and mushrooms and home-made fruit salad and the warm and friendly reception from Gill and Norman.

My other half and I were looking for something close to the beach for the airshow and we came upon this little gem. The room that we had, #3, was a wonderful size, spacious but cosy at the same time with a lovely little ensuite shower room. The amenities in the room were welcoming. The breakfast each morning was lovely... More

Just returned home after spending a few nights. Friendly atmosphere and room was immaculate, food was wonderful and Gill and Norman are amazing hosts, after mentioning it was my 40th birthday the day before we arrived Gill got me some beautiful flowers. We will definitely return next year and recommend to friends and family.

Norman and Gill are very friendly hosts, the room we had was spotlessly clean and very spacious. The individually cooked breakfast was delicious with plenty of fresh fruit, cereal as well as full English or smoked haddock. Gill also seems to enjoy cooking and we had cherry and almond muffins on 2 mornings and pineapple and coconut cake on our... More

We've just returned from Norman and Gill's B&B having spent five nights. We were so impressed with their hospitality and kindness and nothing was too much trouble for them. The quality of the breakfasts was incredible (I know what I'm talking about here as a former food scientist). The whole thing was great and Gill's home made jam and marmalade... More

Booked a room as we were going to a gig at the O2. The welcome from Gill was outstanding, the room spotless, bed so so comfy and dinner recommendation couldnt be faulted (see Reef Encounter reviews). The O2 was literally just round the corner, absolutely perfect location for us and also a short walk from the beach. After a comfy... More

Very surprised to find such a welcome and lovely room at a guest house. Extras in room, very comfortable and very friendly hosts.

Very welcoming to our young dog Would definitely return in the future Thank you Norman and Gill
