Very nicely decorated, simple design, clean and tidy. Very helpful young man to help carry the bags upstairs and even carry them back down to the... More

Just come back from a short break at this excellent B&B. Our room was beautifully clean and well maintained with a lovely ensuite shower and piping hot water. Beds were very comfy too. The breakfasts in the morning are amazing; just don't ask me how the chef manages to get the fried bread so perfect, as I certainly can't get... More

We have just returned home from a short break at this wonderful B & B. Michael and Neil along with their staff run an amazing B & B. It has a wonderful homely vibe, is spotlessly clean and Michael cooks and excellent breakfast. This was a last minute break for us and we were having trouble finding somewhere to stay... More

Really pleased with our stay at Marlins: lovely, comfortable, clean room, very big bed. Excellent breakfast and they cater for dietary restrictions. On site car parking, just a few minutes walk from the sea front, and only 10 minutes walk to the gardens or town centre. The owners are very helpful and have lots of information on local restaurants, all... More

This is a B&B hotel in Bournemouth and we are regular visitors; sometimes just the 2 of us, sometimes with family and sometimes on business. It provides the best of everything as far as we are concerned. The location cannot be bettered as it is a short walk from the best beach in the UK, the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre),...
