Very clean and comfortable B&B .Owners are very friendly and helpful. Good location for beach and shops.. Parking can be a bit of a problem you can get block in because spaces are limited. Breakfast is what you would expect in a B&B. Our only disappointment was the TV only one channel available and the signal was bad.

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write a review of your stay. I am sorry that there were problems with TV reception during your stay. Television reception in certain parts of the country has been adversely affected by the 4G mobile phone signal. Unfortunately our postcode along with other parts of Bournemouth is sometimes affected.... More

I agree with all the good reviews about this B&B on this site. Charming, clean and comfortable and very hospitable. We loved it. We only stayed for 2 nights and found our room to be adequate but it would be worth paying the little extra for a superior room with more room is staying a little longer. Would certainly return.

My husband and I booked 3 nights at this lovely place and we weren't disappointed. Clean and comfortable room, brilliant brekkie and ideal location. Would recommend to anyone without hesitation. Paul and Avril were fantastic hosts, and we would most definitely stay there again in future.

Perfect location and perfect B&B. Paul and Avril were perfect hosts. Five nights at Blue Palms, excellent bed and breakfast close to town and sea front and public transport. The rooms are themed around old movie stars.
