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

We stayed for one night, with our 2 year old daughter. Sue made us feel so welcome. The room was clean and very comfortable, plenty of space for us and our little one. Breakfast was great. Lots of choice and all very nice. At breakfast we were even able to switch the tv in the other room to a childrens... 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

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 and my cousin just got back home after spending 1 night at this hotel/guest house. Ideally i was looking for a hotel near the clubs in Bournemouth but they were around £100 for the night we wanted so i looked further afield. I could not be happier with this place. We paid £60 and what we got was a... More

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

Stayed at the Kingsley for one night whilst attending a concert at the nearby BIC. The staff were very friendly and helpful offering directions etc.. for newcomers to Bournemouth. 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
