Me and the girlfriend stayed over the Easter weekend. We got there quite late as we had travelled from Copenhagen but nothing was too much trouble. A very clean and comfortable B and B with good food and attentive hosts. Thoroughly recommended.

Arrived on New Years Eve and received a warm welcome from Jing and Martin. We took our bags to our room and then Martin navigated for me as we drove to the hotel which they have a car parking arrangement with (only 5 mins walk away). We had a family room which was very nice indeed - clean & tidy... More

Excellent, excellent place! We arrived at The Cremona for a Halloween break in Bournemouth - there were no horrors on show at the Cremona. We were met by our hosts who were very polite and informative. Parking facilities are nearby at another hotel for a small additional fee - no problem. We were informed that breakfast was served between 0830... More

We stayed one night in a family room at The Cremona. Martin seemed a little shy at first but once we got talking we found him to be a nice, kind genuine man with a wonderful sense of humour. His wife and daughter were absolutely lovely and kind. Rooms were spotless. Hotel is five minutes away from the town and... More

I booked the Cremona last minute to take the kids to the Bournemouth air show. Firstly Martin was really helpful from the start, parking was v bad as the airshow was on and the whole of the uk seemed to be in Bournemouth. Martin kindly took our bags up to the room whilst we found a space, this proved to... More

Stayed for one night as were going to theatre. Clean & well stocked bedroom, shower a bit on the small side for bigger people. Parking was OK in Wessex Hotel for £5.00. Will not class this as 4*. Would have liked to have met Martin's wife. Martin does come across as abrupt.

Very handy location for Bournemouth town and beach. Car parking can be difficult if cannot find a space on the road but parking can be offered at another local hotel for £5 /24hrs. Once parked lots to do in walking distance or buses. Various breakfasts on offer and lots of choice of good quality food. Very clean hotel.Beds comfortable, toiletries,... More

The owner, Martin, is a rude, grumpy old man!! He must learn how to treat customers, otherwise he will soon be out of business. When I asked for an additional set of towels, he said that my family and I already had one set each. I insisted that we needed a new set of towels and this rude guy replied... More

JMIW, Owner at The Cremona Hotel, responded to this review

This gentleman seems to have come intent on writing a critical review, since he complained from the moment he arrived (significantly early without notice). He may have mistakenly thought he had chosen a 5 star luxury hotel rather than a family-run bed and breakfast. He perhaps believed this gave him licence to act the pasha, for he issued a stream...
