The Blue Palms should be called "The Mary Poppins!", it's practically perfect in every way. The hosts, Paul & Avril are brilliant, the accommodation is immaculately clean and well presented. On arrival you are greeted with the most warmest welcome and the friendliness continues throughout your stay, banter is good too!!! Lots of variety for breakfast & full English cooked... More

Paul and Avril run a very well organised hotel, starting with the initial greeting and ending with a warm goodbye. The hotel is very clean, the breakfast is well cooked and a good range of choices. 5 minutes walk to the town centre shops, 8 minutes to the beach and pier with a good choice of restaurants only a few...

We got a delightful welcome like visiting an old friend even though we looked like we were lost! We had arrived earlier and took some time to walk around Bournemouth before checking in. So we were given our keys and shown to our room before we pulled up with the car and unpacked. I think we checked in twice. Paul... More

When you leave a place and you really cannot find anything to complain about then you have found a little gem. We were made welcome right from the moment we got to the hotel Avril meeting us in the car park then Paul came on the scene he could not have been more welcoming. Our room was spotless lovely white... More

Thank you so much. It is especially encouraging to have such positive feedback from regular guests like yourselves. Your support for me while Paul was resting up after his short illness was very much appreciated. Thankfully, he is back up and firing on all cylinders again now! We look forward to your next visit.

This is hands down the best B&B I have ever stayed in. The couple who run it (Paul and Avril) are delightful, thoughtful people who will offer kind and stupendous service. The rooms are summery and cosy with everything you need in it and the breakfast was delicious (the saussage sandwhich was life changing). The beds are surprisingly soft and... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments Sarah. Both Paul & I are passionate about providing good service to our guests. We love what we do and feedback like this makes it all worthwhile. We can't change the hills I'm afraid. I have been wishing we could for the last 23 years! More

We booked the Blue Palms because of other good reviews, and in particular it's location, being close to Bournemouth town centre. About a week or so before we departed, we were contacted by the owners, introducing themselves, and offering any advance help we might need. The greeting was very pleasant and the B&B is a lovely little place, nestled about... More
