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

Booked fairly late for a long weekend. Carlton Lodge is in Boscombe about 5 - 10 mins walk from the beach and Boscombe Pier. The beach here is quieter but I think better than the Bournemouth end. We were greeted by Norm on arrival and shown to our rooms. Which were spacious and very clean. The rooms were quiet and... More

Myself and a friend have just been to Bournemouth for a girly weekend away, and stayed at this B&B. We chose it mainly because of all the good comments on here, and we werent disappointed at all! The place itself is very homely. The bed was comfy, which you dont normally find in alot of hotels etc, and the room... More

We spent two nights and found the room to be absolutely spotless, with comfortable bedding, quality towels and car parking directly outside in their driveway. Having a child in the single bed plus one in a portacot, it was a little tight but we managed fine. The bathroom had been built into the room, like a wardrobe. It was a... More

We stayed for two nights mid July. As we had booked very much at the last minute we benefited from a reduced rate, but even at the usual rate I would have felt we'd had value for money. The standard of cleanliness was more than excellent, and believe me, I'm fussy! The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast... More
