We have just returned from a weekend at The Balincourt, the hotel is really well placed to visit Boscome and Bournemouth beaches. We made the most of this and also visited Poole and Christchurch, the area is beautiful! We were in the superior room, which was very comfortable and spacious with lovely little touches like chocolates and biscuits to have... More

My wife and I had a 2 night break at The Balincourt and what a great break it was. The Superior room was well worth the little bit extra. The people who own/manage it are so very friendly and welcoming. It is nice and quiet, perhaps the 'no children' rule helps in this respect. Upon arrival, we were greeted by... More

Found this little gem via Trip Advisor. We stayed for two nights to take in our 55th wedding anniversary. Our choice could not have been improved on. Very friendly welcome at reception. Room number 9 was excellent with twin beds and a walk in shower (and it worked well too!). Provided goodies included Bottle Water, Tea, Coffee, and an impressive... More

Stayed two nights for a short break, our room was top floor so no noise from other rooms which is good. The room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of storage. The bathroom was very small so watch your elbows when having a shower. Breakfast was cooked to order and of a good standard and was nice to have... More

Booked three nights at the last minute as good weather forecast. We were not disappointed. Very clean and comfortable guest house, excellent breakfast, hosts very friendly. Lovely big room, very quiet and convenient for the beach and buses run past the front of the house. Beautiful gardens attended by Nigel. The ensuite bathroom was a little cramped and the glass...

We have just come back from a wonderful stay at the Balincourt Hotel. The superior room was lovely, the bed was to die for and all the little finishing touches in the room made it just perfect. The service and attention to detail were outstanding and nothing was too much trouble. The dining room was spotless and the breakfast was... More

We travel around a lot and stay in quite a few hotels, the Balincourt Hotel is one of the best we have stayed in. The hotel is super clean with a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere. The breakfast is superb, the bed really comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. For a spotless and lovely stay 10 minutes away from the... More

This B&B is wonderful. It's location is excellent, just a short distance away from the hub of Bournemouth makes it very peaceful. Extremely clean, very good food, very nice hosts and comfortable bed! Bus stop right outside, you can travel to most places from the main road, very quiet too. An excellent find, you won't be disappointed.

The owners have high standards which are obvious from their attention to detail, in terms of cleanliness, decor (even the shower cutain had sparkles to match the pull cord and bedroom lamps!), quality china, bedding and toiletries. We were initially concerned that the hotel might be noisy given its proximity to a main road, but Room 8 was very quiet... More

Thanks for your lovely comments and for mentioning the Russell-Cotes museum and art gallery. It's open all year round and is within easy walking distance of the Balincourt and is, as you say, a real treasure. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back very soon. More

We stayed here for two nights in March. When we arrived I discovered that it only accepted over 16 year olds and my son is only 6. However they let us stay and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was clean with many extras, even a small posy of fresh flowers. The bed was comfortable with fresh quality linen.... More
