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

Perfectly lovely short stay. Very clean and welcoming landlady, everything we needed and lovely breakfast. The location is perfect for some lovely walks along the prom and a quiet nights rest. Free parking was a bonus.

We stayed for a weekend whilst collecting daughter from Uni. Had a beautiful room which was spacious and spotless. The landlady, Sue, was so attentive. WE had a tray of coffee when we arrived and Sue suggested our daughter joined us for breakfast. (For which she wouldn't accept payment) All in all a fantastic stay. We will be booking for... More

The room was lovely and clean and the full English breakfast the next morning was fantastic, with lots of choice and quality ingredients. Overall if you can't go wrong here. Superb... More

Had a lovely stay here this week. The room was ideal, plenty of space, lots of cupboard space, clean and tidy. The hotel was lovely, very inviting. What makes us say it was brilliant was the owner, she made us feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble. She was a gem, good old fashioned hospitality as it should... More

For a one night stay in Boscom I booked a room on Kingsley hotel. The hotel looked very nice at first sight with a very friendly lady who wished me welcome. My room was a big one for a "single" room with nice furniture and three beds (one double). Next morning I had an early breakfast , which was served... More

Have been travelling to bournemouth for last 40 years and have stayed at many hotels. Value for money this has been the best. If i want a spa or pool then would expect to... More

The great reviews of this hotel do not lie. The family and I shared a fabulous family room on the 1st floor. Our welcome to the hotel was just perfect with Sue being the greatest host. Breakfast was first class with lots on offer for all the family. Location is great with just a short walk to the beach. If... More

Booked to see Boomtown Rats and this hotel was close to venue. The room was great, the bed was comfortable, the shower was perfect and the windows could be opened! These are thing you don't find in many 4 or 5 star hotels. Then there was breakfast! Simply one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had at any... More
