Had three nights in the Bamboo in Room 1 (Master ). Premises was lovely. Clean and tidy. We loved the fact that breakfast (continental) was available until 12 to save rushing in the morning. Very close to the city centre and beach/pier. Would highly recommend for a break in Bournemouth.

I highly recommend this guest house. The whole property was bright, clean & very good value for money. I booked it based on their reviews & was very glad I did. The location was perfect too, so close to the beach & Bournemouth town centre. 5 star service, thank you.

Love this place - my second visit here in the last 5 months and I'll definitely be returning. The guest house itself is clean, contemporary and has a general light and airy feel to it. Location wise it's just 5 mins from the town centre (albeit to return to the hotel, you're heading up quite a steep incline - it's... More

My lady had a serious accident three days before the check-in date, so we could not travel anymore. I asked if we could be offered to stay on another day, maybe during low season, as we really wanted to visit Bournesmouth. The answer was no. The booking was cancelled, and the room was sold for the second time (as I... More

Unfair review! When you booked to stay with us, you accepted our standard terms and conditions of booking that clearly state our cancellation policy. This third party booking was not cancelled until 9pm the night before arrival. We were lucky enough to resell this room on the Saturday morning but at a discounted last minute price. However, had the cancellation... More

Beautiful clean and modern guesthouse, Lee is very friendly and helpful location is very central with only a short walk to some lovely restaurants and all of the shops and also literally a 3 minute walk from the BIC. Lovely continental breakfast that is served from 8-12, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Lovely warm welcome on arrival. Room compact but had everything we needed. Tea, coffee and biscuits restocked daily. Plentiful breakfast. Short walk to most attractions. Restaurants and bars on doorstep. A great place to stay, we will return.
