From the moment we arrived, the service provided was second-to-none. I travel a lot for work; this place set a new benchmark even compared to hotels many times its size and with a 'brand' reputation. Small, yes; shared bathrooms, yes; neither of these were a problem. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean. The TV lounge was spacious and welcoming.... More

This is a town B&B and as such it always comes with some logistic problems, for example difficulties with finding adequate car park in peak times, but in the main the rooms are good and clean, the service is very efficient and friendly and it is well situated. to have only a bathroom for 4 rooms in the top floor...

We loved this hotel. We originally booked for 4, but showed up with 5, and they wasted no time re-accommodating us. The rooms were comfortable and clean, with in-room wash basin (toilet & shower down the hall). They provided a full English breakfast, even for those with dietary restraints. As a vegetarian, I was given veggie sausage with my beans,... More

We had booked a one night stay as my partner and I were going to a concert at the Bournemouth International Centre. We arrived at The Strand and were lucky that there was a parking space outside the hotel. The owner was welcoming and asked about our stay. We asked if he could recommend any where to eat and he...

This place is lovely. Feels just like staying at your grandparents house for the night. Shared a lovely little attic type room with my friend for the night. Comfy bed and they leave a little welcome box in the room with towels and slippers. The breakfast was really good, fry up cooked to perfection and probably every cereal in the... More

Stayed here on a boys weekend when the football team I support played down here. Room was very basic but had everything we needed and was extremely good value for money. The breakfast on a morning was certainly welcomed and the service throughout the visit was great. We were there for a good time and the hotel definitely helped with... More

We booked a twin room and it was very comfortable. We were welcomed at the reception and shown round the hotel then guided to our room. There was all the makings for tea and coffee and also a tv.
