Just returned from a girls long weekend staying at the Ingledene (Fri-Mon), where we staying in one of their triple rooms (room 0) on a bed and breakfast basis. At first we were a little concerned about the location of the room and noise levels as it was on the ground floor at the bottom of the stairs between the front door and the breakfast room, however we had no problems whatsoever. The room was clean, functional (fridge, kettle, tea & coffee, small ensuite, tv), our only complaint was that we couldn't seem to get a happy medium with the shower - it was either tepid or boiling hot! The staff are really welcoming and seemed to be genuinely interested in what our plans for the day were, how we were enjoying our stay etc. There also seemed to be a good mix of guests: families, studies, friends etc. Location was good, plenty of free parking, close to the beach and not too far a walk to the centre of town.
Breakfast was nothing short of excellent - good small selection of continental items and English breakfast freshly cooked to order as required.
We very much enjoyed our stay and would use the Ingledene again or recommend it to anyone looking for a budget bargain stay in Bournemouth.
