If you are planning a stag or hen party in Bournemouth... I can not recommend this hotel enough! The land lady (and her family) were attentive and welcoming. The bedrooms, although a little cramped, were clean, well decorated and had their own en suite. A cut above your usual stag-party bunk houses! It is in a great location too -... More

Having looked high and low for an inexpensive room for just one night, I found the Chelsea Hotel. For the price asked I wasn't expecting to much, just hoping for a clean bed,etc. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The room, bathroom, bed etc. were quite pristine and the welcome from the Chelsea's owner Chrissy was professional and very welcoming.

We stayed in the family room with 2 children. For the Easter weekend. We had a fantastic time received a warm welcome upon arrival and all staff were more than happy to help and they were all polite. The hotel is clean and modern and the dining / bar area has everything you need including a juke box. The town... More

I had a great stay at Chelsea Hotel, located close to the Bournemouth Rail and Coach Station. At first I only booked for 2 nights, to look around in Bournemouth. But I quickly extended to 3 weeks: I had a very quiet and clean en-suite room with a comfortable bed, so I slept like a log. Overall you will get... More

I see that the reviews of this place vary widely! I've been coming to Chelsea Hotel on and off for three years and think it's a great wee place and offers wonderful value! The place has really smartened up: the rooms are well-appointed and the bathrooms are absolutely fantastic. All is very clean and I've never found Sue and Chrissy... More

Comfortable stay at the hotel, the owner was pleasant and helpful - the rooms were warm and very clean! Can't fault it.. I wouldn't read too much into these bad reviews most are from large groups who in my experience are just usually drunks on a power trip! Will defiantly be staying here again Thank you

I have been to many hotels and b&b's in my time, and i must say this is the worst hotel in the whole of the uk (by far). This b&b should most definatley be shut down. The owner is an arrigant hag in which what ever she says goes (apparently she is always right). She is lazy with her work... More
