Really made to feel welcome. Rooms were nice, clean and airy. Bathroom and towels all very clean. Good sized breakfast, and very helpful people with plenty of reccommendations if you're stuck for what to do! A+ would stay again.

We found this place on the internet, and we couldn't have stayed in a more welcoming guest house. Thankyou to Jill and Norman! Lovely, clean and comfortable rooms, with added touches i.e. fresh bottle of water every morning, as well as the tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits, all very much appreciated. Wonderful, comfortable beds! Nicely furnished room! Breakfasts were so good,... More

We stayed here as an overnight stop after going to Bournemouth FC. The hosts were most welcoming and the our room on the first floor was large with a double bed and an additional single bed with en-suite shower room. There was tea and coffee making facilities , with biscuits and a bottle of water each. There was driveway parking... More

Had a lovely stay here. The owners couldn't have done more for us; when we mentioned it was our wedding anniversary several minutes later a cyclamen appeared as a present for us. The room was large, and so was the breakfast. Would visit again.

Jill and Norman were very nice and friendly. Great breakfast. Lovely muffins Rooms were clean, with en-suite, TV and free tea/cofee making and buscuits. Good location for away fans - 10-15mins walk to the ground. 5-10 mins walk to shops, bars etc Driveway parking. Would definitely stay here again next time I visit Bournemouth!

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend after coming to Bournemouth for the football. We were met by Gill, who showed us to our room and was very helpful in explaining how to get to the ground, and the pubs for the away fans. She was also able to advise on the best places to eat locally. The... More

...how to run a B & B. These people should go to The Carlton Lodge and learn how things should be done! As nearly all of the reviews say - very friendly reception, clean rooms, super breakfast. Norman and Gill have the right balance between being professional and friendly at the same time. We stayed in room 3, which was... More
