A word of warning. The Ts & Cs are tough.. If you do not give seven days notice of cancellation you are charged in full for the room. This is harsh - circumstances change; people, be a litle more flexible! Also, you have to pay in full when you arrive. This makes one feel as if the owner thinks you... More

I ADORED the Bamboo Guesthouse. Yes, as other reviews has noted the rooms are not huge unless you get the master. However architecturally this is a grade two listed guesthouse not a purpose built hotel with standardised rooms. The bonus of this, which we loved, is that every room in the place has it's own individual character reinforced by individual... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed for two nights at bamboo guesthouse. We have never stayed at a guesthouse before and they've set the bar high! Every room was spotless, and smelt lovely and clean! Perfect for a quiet and relaxing stay, the owner greeted us and as we'd never been to Bournemouth before and was more than happy to advise... More

A great guesthouse, the rooms were well furnished and decorated and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was a continent a style which you served yourself although Kevin was always on hand to make coffee or supply more hot croissants. Would thoroughly recommend.

Very friendly owner, lovely continental breakfast, clean quiet rooms. It's a guesthouse, not a B & B or a 5 * Hotel guys and it's just the way I like it. No reception, no noise, not 50 rooms with every hassle that comes with it. No, there's a few rooms (some bigger than others but who cares, they are still... More

Lovely guesthouse, great location for the bic, beaches and town. The owner was very welcoming and friendly felt like staying at a friends house. Our room was nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast was served at a time of our choice which was a nice continental breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

A lovely little guest house in a fantastic location. The house is beautifully decorated with really cool artwork and everything was immaculately clean. The manager was friendly and got the level of service spot on - available when we needed him but left us to our own devices the rest of the time - perfect host! We stayed in room... More

I really loved this guest house. A warm welcome from staff, who offered to ensure warm pastries for breakfast at a time of our choosing (which we didn't make it down for!). Overall a friendly, clean guest house with nicely presented room in a great location for accessing both the beach and the BIC.

This was a really good and well organised guesthouse. The room was a little bit small but certainly well equipped with a good TV and a decent bathroom and all the facilities. It's a really handy location near some good restaurants but also close to the centre of town.

Spent I night at the bamboo guest house I'm Bournemouth. A lovely little B&b close to all amenities. Very clean and well maintained. Extremely comfortable beds. Owners very welcoming, despite a late arrival. Breakfast continental style, but good with warm croissants etc. Owner takes great pride in this place and very well priced. Highly recommended.
