We needed to be near Bournemouth due to a family bereavement, so we needed to be very central whilst have access to the local area. The rooms are very clean, well equipped and comfortable - no complaints at all. Breakfast for £5 is great value how anyone can say that it is not enough I have no idea! Showers are... More

I have nothing but praise for this place. The owners, Jorge and Isabel, are both pleasant people. The standard of decoration is excellent. The vegetarian breakfast was satisfactory and at £5 a good price. But what really amazed me is the cleanliness; the place is spotless. I can also add that the bed was comfortable and made up every day... More

After an arduous journey to Bournemouth by train we arrived at the hotel and was met by a stern looking gentleman, but it was not long before George showed his true nature,... very friendly and welcoming. The room that my wife (Diana) and I was staying in was of a good size and was clean and tidy. Diana's parents stayed... More

Stayed at the Shirley hotel recently with my partner. Hotel was very clean, room was small but had everything we needed. Furnishings were a bit mismatched but they were all there. Breakfast was average. Not much choice and came out cold.

I stayed for two nights with my husband and 8 month old son whilst we were visiting family in Bournemouth and found the hotel very comfortable. The room was fairly large and clean, and the ensuite bathroom perfectly adequate. The owner was very friendly and helpful, as were the other staff we met, and the breakfast was delicious with a...

We booked for two nights for a mid-week break. We were warmly greeted by the owner, and shown to our room. It was perfectly comfortable and clean and tidy. On arrival I read the welcome literature, and was a little concerned to spot this was a dog friendly hotel, but I couldn't smell dogs at all, and I would not... More

My boyfriend and I came here to go to the O2 academy and had a terrific experience. A beautiful little bed and breakfast in walking distance of the coast. Greeted by the lovely owner, Jorge, who we found very welcoming. We then went upstairs to our room (11) and found a comfortable, cosy, clean room. Whilst this room was small... More
