Me and my Girlfriend spent 7 nights here and had a fantastic time. We stayed in the Marilyn Monroe suite (Room 5) and it was clean, spacious and cosy. The double bed resulted in a comfortable sleep and the shower was powerful and long lasting. Paul & Avril were the most welcoming hosts and went out of their way to... More

This is an absolute gem of a small hotel and the hospitality on offer is second to none. The hotel is in a great central location near the centre, shops and beaches of Bournemouth. It is very well run by the owners Avril and Paul, who are welcoming, friendly, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of there... More

we found the Blue Palms an excellent hotel. The hosts were brilliant very helpful and nothing was too much trouble even recommending a local Italian restaurant which was very nice. The breakfast was all freshly cooked and everything you would want loads of choice and with the extra daily specials. The rooms are very clean and we stayed in the... More

My wife and I spent a lovely week in Bournemouth. We stayed at the Blue Palms Hotel. The accomadation was superb. Clean and well maintained. The breakfast was freshly cooked and served with a smile. The proprietors were a joy to meet. Overall, we could not fault this small hotel.

We made a very late booking for three nights in Bournemouth. How lucky we were to find the Blue Palms. Paul and Avril were perfect hosts. Paul never seems to stop laughing. We had a very nice bright and comfortable room. The alcove with a sofa catches the sun just perfectly. The rooms all have a film theme. There is... More

This is a really nice small hotel within easy walking distance of the centre of town or the beach. Paul and Avril made us feel very welcome. Room small and very cosy. We will definitely book again when we visit the area.

Managed to get a late booking for what turned out to be the hottest days of the year so far. Nice welcoming, centrally located B&B with easy access to shops, gardens and beach. Nice spacious and comfortable room, and the free standing fan was a big plus to cool things down Many personal touches that you do not find in... More

Paul and Avril are the really lovely, welcoming couple who run this B&B - and they really make the place special. Its a simple, and quaint place - with very cool, retro and kitch artwork of 1950's stars all over the place. The rooms are spacious, and clean - and the breakfasts had a good selection to choose from. The... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for alerting us to the creaky bed. I do hope it didn't interrupt your sleep. We have now replaced the mattress and secured the headboard more firmly so no more creaking for future guests! More

Everything was just perfect! Avril and Paul very kindly welcomed us on our very late arrival (due to a problem with our coach) and said goodbye on our early check-out. They were very kind and friendly and they made us feel home! Their dog Freckles is a very cute dog! The taste of the b&b decoration is impressive, you can... More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We were so sorry you had such an awful journey to Bournemouth. It must have been quite scary being stranded like that in the early hours of the morning. Freckles loves a mention in dispatches and says thank you very much! She will get an extra treat today as a reward. She... More
