From the moment you arrive you feel so welcome and comfortable. The location is ideal for access to both the beach and the town. There are brilliantly restaurants ( Urban Beach and Urvan Reef ) within strolling distance. The breakfast is wonderful with fresh fruit cereals and proper coffee plus sausages beyond compare. There is a rumour of Sues husband... More

We have been here many time when they are not booked up as they are very popular. On arrival we was given a warm welcome and a hand upstairs with out things. And 10mins later sue the owner brought us a tray of much needed cup of tea even though we had tea in our room. Lovely big flat screen... More

Lovely,beautiful hotel. Owners were attentive to all our family requirements. Hotel is in a perfect location. Walking distance of sandy beaches,local shops and not on the main road,so quiet for the children. Room so comfortable and great for us. A pretty view from our window. Really made us welcome.

I stayed mid week with my daughter for 1 night for a concert at the 02 which was less than 10 mins walk away. We booked a twin directly with the hotel and found that we had been upgraded to a lovely family room which had a double bed and 2 singles. Linen on the beds was spotless and pretty... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The rooms (we had 3) were all spotlessly clean and much bigger than usual. Decor was fresh and there was plenty of storage space. Our breakfast was amazing, lots of fresh fruit, including strawberries, raspberries, mango, melon and pineapple. Huge choice of cereal, yoghurts and pasties. Then came a... More

Stayed for 2 nights moving on to 1 night in a more expensive hotel in the New Forest. I can honestly say that the Kingsley was much better both in cleanliness, room size and of course value for money. We were made very welcome and enjoyed the location being 5 mins walk from Boscombe beach and pier.

My husband and I stayed for one night with our 2 young daughters. It was perfect in every way. Sue was so friendly and made us all feel welcome straight away. Great room for the 4 of us with tea facilities (perfect for me). Short walk to the sea front. Lovely, good quality breakfast the best I have had! Girls... More

We had a 2 night stay at the Kingsley. Sue, the owner, was very friendly and offered a warm welcome to my husband and I. The room was very clean. The hotel is in a good location if you are happy to walk the 2.5km to bournemouth centre or get a taxi. Large choice at breakfast too. Definitely service with... More
