I can't recommend Blue Palms highly enough after my first stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Avril and Paul who are excellent hosts. Great choice of breakfast cooked to perfection; I'm going to miss it! I was in room (10) which was very comfortable, particularly after a full day out. I loved its central location within easy walk of... More

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

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

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.
