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

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

This is situated close to Bournemouth centre, ap 10 min walk down the hill. The rooms we had varied in size and cost. They were decorated with old Hollywood memorbila. Bed was comfotable. For breakfast you could have cereals and a cooked breakfast. The cooked breakfast was nice, but basic. Didn' t like the coffee and the juice, but those... More

My Wife and I have stayed at the Blue Palms Hotel twice now and both times Paul and Avail have made our stay comfortable and they make you feel part of the family. The added bonus of having a small parking area this is small but Paul will park your car maximising the parking area. The location is good and... More

This was a late book and what a gem! We went to the BIC to see John Bishop and had booked 2 nights stay. We were treated like long lost friends and Paul was the most welcoming host and Avril was as welcoming as well. We didn't get to met freckles, but that's for the next visit. Room was large,... More
