The Kingsley sets the bar very high for other small hotels to follow. The attention to detail was beyond expectations to the extent this would be my first choice for a repeat visit. You'll find that the Trip Advisor rating is fully justified, but my only problem is that any other similar establishment will only be a disappointment in comparison,... More

Just come back from a one night stay to go to a gig at Bournemouth (actually in Boscombe!) Academy and top notch! Lovely welcome to me and my 13 year old son, 5 minutes to Academy and shops and eateries and 5 minutes other way to beach and surf. Absolutely lovely cooked breakfast but also large variety of cereal and... More

Location: the hotel is two minutes walk from the beach, five minutes walk from local supermarket. Taxi to town centre, 7~9 pounds one way to the Bournemouth two centre. Really charming early 19 century house in a quiet street. During our stay with the hotel, we are able to walk alongside the seafront in the afternoon, out in town for... More

Stayed for 4 nights at this wonderful B&B while in Bournemouth to take classes. Arrived quite late on a Friday night in the midst of a terrible storm that had delayed our arrival and were welcomed with a smile by the lovely Sue who made us feel welcome and cared for. Rooms were spotless and comfortable and a blessed relief... More

Greeted by the lovely owner on arrival who carried our bags and was really helpful and friendly. Room was spacious and had everything we needed, yes a little dated but was clean. Lots of cereals to choose from at breakfast and fruit too but I must admit I'm all about the full English and although the breakfast was nice and... More

The Kingsley Hotel, 20 Glen Road, Boscombe, Bournemouth. A fabulous welcome awaits travellers at this hotel. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the lovely landlady Sue. The spacious ‘en suite’ family room we were in was spotlessly clean. The bed was firm & comfortable with a choice of pillows. The bedding was modern & fresh. Easy chairs were situated next... More

I stayed here over Christmas on a bed and breakfast basis. Without doubt, Sue offers one of the best choice of breakfast's I have ever seen. The room was fine and Sue is an excellent host. I have no hesitation in recommending the Kingsley in Bournemouth, in my honest opinion it represents superb value for money - hence the five... More

Having already read the reviews I decided to give it a go for a last minute weekend trip to Bournemouth with my daughter. There is some parking out the front but not enough for me to find a space so I had to park quiet far down the road. We were in room twelve which is on the ground floor... More

Such a great place to stay after the thoroughly dispiriting previous night's stay at a Hilton in Croydon. Huge, airy, clean room, easy access, parking, wifi and great value. Splendid breakfast and super landlady. Hope to use again when next down there.
