We wanted a last minute hotel near the town and the sea with parking. Not luxurious, but once you get past the ugly front door, a smart interior awaits. Clean, comfortable and a warm welcome. Recommended

The Applewood was a last minute choice... we wanted a weekend away in Dorset and we had left it rather late to book. The Applewood had good reviews and one room left ... a 'small twin with ensuite'...so we booked. Frankly the room we had was not what we expected. Yes it had two beds..and it was certainly small, but... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay with my Mum - hotel perfect in every way. Location is perfect to reach everything on foot and bus stops nearby for anything further afield. The hotel itself is absolutely spotlessly clean, with beautiful gardens, two lovely breakfast options (the light breakfast is very generous or you can go the whole hog with... More

After days of researching and looking for a nice hotel in Bournemouth we settled on Applewood. The location of applewood is definitely in the nicer part of the town, with a 5-10 minute walk from the pier and beach. Luckily the weather was hot, so the beach and town was nicely busy. The hotel itself is clean and the area... More

walking distance to Bournemouth town centre and beach front. Very warm welcome from the owners, a very clean and well maintained hotel. Did not make full use of the breakfast option as had to leave for work before breakfast was served.

Lovely hotel set in an ideal location within walking distance from the beach. Go the other direction and you will find the gardens and shopping centre. Very friendly staff and spotless, big rooms. Will use again if I'm in the area again.

The hotel was very clean although basic in some ways. The rooms were plain and bare, no proper wardrobe hanging space and lack of shelf room in the bathroom. It would have been a little more comfortable if there was a chair in the room to view the TV or just relax in. The gardens were very nice..The staff were... More

Lovely friendly clean hotel. Has been refurbished to a very high standard. The room was very bijou, but it was great as a base. The shower was excellent. Breakfast was very informal and there was plenty of choice, although you did pay extra for the breakfast.
