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),...

A beautiful hotel, spotless room and throughout, the owners very welcoming and approachable, made for a very pleasant stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, and an additional thing being that they really do cater for complex dietary requirements, so we had no worries at all.

Booked this the night before as a last minute getaway, really pleased with it. We could not fault anything. Room and bathroom/shower were spotless. Comfortable bed and quality linen/pillows. Quality produce at breakfast. Friendly welcome, very efficient, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely try for a room again if back in the area, thanks guys :-)

The room was clean, comfortable and had everything that you could need. Husband had breakfast and im told it was perfection. Would happily stay again and recommend to anyone who wants a seaside break as... More

We stayed at Marlins for 2 nights at the beginning of June 2015. We were greeted by one of the owners outside the property, who requested that we parked in a certain space due to having a big car. The car park is perfectly adequate for the size of the hotel and we had no problems manoeuvring our long car... More

Hotel is on the popular West Cliff and is a very short walk to the beach and main shopping areas. The car park is small but was not a problem to manoeuvre in. Stayed for 2 nights in the room with a separate bathroom on the top floor. Small room, but very pleasant and never felt cramped. Bathroom is no... More

We stayed here for just one night back in September for a friends birthday. We stayed in the room with the separate bathroom and were a bit dubious before we arrived. However, we needn't have worried, it was very close to the room! The owner was extremely helpful and lovely, everything was spotlessly clean. The room was very comfortable, with... More

A lovely B& B, a friendly welcome from the owners who are so approachable and will do anything to help. Lovely to be in a B&B which is clean with a really comfortable bed. Located a few mins walk from the beach and the BIC. Lovely breakfast served with a smile. I'll be recommending Marlins to friends and family who... More
