Excellent hotel. Neil & Michael really know how to look after you you, nothing is a trouble. Outstanding breakfast served in a very pleasant dining room. Bedrooms spotles, towels changed every other day. JUST PERFECT

We had a lovely family stay at Marlins. Immediately welcomed by Neil and showed us the parking space. The hotel is very clean and tidy and tastefully decorated and the guests lounge so peaceful and relaxing. Michael's cooked breakfast was always perfect to whatever your requirements and the dining room, a bright and cheery place to be. The small courtyard... More

From the time you step through the door till the moment you leave, Neil and Michael will ensure that your every need is catered for. They are completely genuine in their care and concern and I think that is one of the main reasons that makes them and their hotel stand out. They also work hard keeping the hotel spotlessly... More

Had a fantastic stay at Marlins, four nights weektime. Room was well appointed and spotless. The Full English Breakfast was exceptional, to the extent that we didn't consider any of the other options! As we hadn't stayed in Bournemouth before the advice on the local area that Neil provided was very handy. Looking forward to a return visit.

Always happy to advise on what to see and where to eat etc. Family room is great as plenty of room and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Don't miss the... More

Just returned from a lovely stay here, hosts were great and very friendly, food was brilliant-both the choice and taste! Room was more than enough given the price, only fault is I found the mattress a little hard but that's personal preference, didn't bother my friend. Thoroughly recommend here!

Our room was compact but provided everything we needed as well as being quiet and comfortable. The hotel is located very centrally and is within easy walking distance of both the town... More
