“The perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have stayed in various hotels in Bournemouth but this is a little gem! From the moment we arrived Paul and Avril made us feel at home. Our room (the "Gone With The Wind" room!) was warm, comfortable and spotless.
Breakfast was a choice of fruit juice, yogurt, a selection of cereals and a full "English."
Paul and Avril are the a lovely couple, nothing is too much trouble for them. This is the friendliest hotel we have stayed in. We will be back!

Blue Palms hotel is a lovely, well decorated, friendly, comfortable place to stay. Avril & Paul the owners meet you on arrival and are so friendly you feel as if you know them already. Nothing is too much trouble. The bedroom we had was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. (cleaned every day!). Breakfast was served by Paul (who has a great sense of humour) and consisted of you helping yourself to cereals and juice. Paul then took the order for your breakfast which is cooked to order. You can virtually have anything you want! The hotel is about 5mins walk to town and 10 to the beach. We would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a relaxed enjoyable time in Bournemouth.

Returned to the Blue Palms for our second visit this year and as always received a great welcome from Paul and Avril, nothing is too much trouble for them. Was shown to our room which was very spacious including a lovely ensuite bathroom, great to have a decent shower in a hotel, not always the case.

Breakfast was really lovely, again with the usual entertainment from Paul, we also had a few evening snacks which again were both filling and well presented.

Great central location to stay for the shops and restaurants, ideal for the BIC and just a short walk to the beach.

Can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: Allrooms I have stayed are lovely but just tell Avril or Paul what you are looking for.

Once again we returned to the Blue Palms and were met with a very warm welcome by Avril and Paul. Lovely room, lovely breakfast served with hot chocolate on request! Perfect location to explore Bournemouth and will definitely be returning in the near future.
