Stayed here for a night in September. The room was clean with sky hd. Breakfast was nice and the array of cereal was huge. The hotel is situated close to the beach and in quieter Boscombe, probably more relaxed in the summer. Will Def stay again then. Thankyou.

“Perfect Boscombe stop” We had a over night stay on our way home from another resort. Karl, the owner,was very helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Although there were no family rooms available, Karl was more than happy for us to bring our grandson's inflatable bed with us and gave us his largest double room. We shared a... More

I stayed here for a period of 5 days in November whilst working at the provincial airport. The inn itself is quite small with the quirky stairs and floorboards you'd expect from this kind of establishment. Although as soon as you meet the owner, who was one of the most accommodating hosts I've met, you begin to fall for its... More

Forget dusty decor. Forget somber service. This is a better breed of B&B. Clean, modern, spacious with a relaxing vibe the second you walk in. Friendly service, value for money and no nasty surprises. My room definitley had the "ooh" factor! ✨ 😌 🌟

The proprietors of this hotel are friendly and unobtrusive. The facilities are excellent, very clean. The breakfasts were delicious, fresh fruit and a good quality huge breakfast. Very reasonably priced, in fact dirt cheap.. I will definitely be going back to stay again soon. What a lucky find, a real treasure x
