Clarendon Lodge is a fantastic family run Bed and Breakfast, suitable for business, couples or families. I have always found the standards of cleanliness to be exemplary, breakfast is fantastic and most importantly Liz and Roger are helpful, welcoming and provide a warm friendly customer experience. It is situated a short walk from the lovely beaches, numerous shops and restaurants... More

Very warm welcome, nice house, comfortable beds and delicious breakfast. All that you can be hoping for in a B&B! All this for a very good price. The place is only 10-15 mimutes by bus to Bournemouth city centre.

As an exiled supporter of AFC Bournemouth, this is an ideal Guest House to stay when coming to a match. It is in easy walking distance (approx 15 minutes) of the ground. Variety of places to eat close by in Boscombe. Liz and Roger very welcoming and make you feel at home. They help to make a trip to Bournemouth... More

The Clarendon Lodge is a very comfortable and homely B&B with hosts that are extremely welcoming and friendly. Always kept in a very clean and tidy condition, numerous choices for breakfast coupled with parking on site and free Wi Fi. A more than regular bus service into nearby Bournemouth or Poole for those who would like to keep the car... More

I went to Bournemouth for work, and decided to stay overnight. Clarendon Lodge is a great accommodation for my trip. It was a bit far from the town center and quite. However, you can walk by the beach to the center as well. The room was cozy, tidy and clean. Liz is an exceptional host, and the breakfast was good.... More

Staying on a visit from Cumbria. Roger and Liz were friendly hosts with a good knowledge of the local area. Excellent breakfast, well equipped rooms that were spotlessly clean. Good parking on forecourt. Handy for beach and town. Highly recommended.

I was recommended the lodge by a local creative hub, and it lived up to the expectation. With friendly service, comfortable rooms and a freshly cooked breakfast, we were well set for the day ahead. I would stay again, without hesitation.

I come down to Bournemouth about 4 times a year to see my daughters and have stayed at Clarendon Lodge several times. My last stay was just before Xmas (I was the last guest of the year apparently). The Lodge offers excellent value for money with a lovely breakfast and a spacious and clean room and perhaps most importantly the... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times as it's near a training venue I have to visit and it's always a pleasure, clean and friendly and good value for money, breakfast is great. Parking is no problem and local shops are a short walk away. Highly recommended.
