“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 17, 2009

This was our second stay at Mory House. We searched the web last year for a B&B close to my mother's house and chose Mory House based on it's proximity. And we couldn't have been happier. The B&B is a family establishment and you are made to feel welcome immediately. The room was clean, comfortable and simply decorated.

Breakfast is fabulous - lots of choices, including fresh fruit and locally produced jams and all perfectly cooked. I do not eat wheat products, and Jane was very accommodating in finding gluten-free bread for breakfast. We will always recommend Mory House to friends and family.

Great clean place to stay with super breakfasts/great hot shower/lovely bed/beautiful room and great hospitality. It's close to the sea and shops and has a lovely warm feel about it. The breakfast is amazing.

How can we put in to words how wonderful the service we received from Mory House other than absolute perfect. From the moment of contacting them on the phone to make the booking, to arrival, the stay throughout and even when we left.

We have a 5 month old daughter and was concerned about where to stay in bournemouth, but as soon as we spoke to Jane and told her that we had a baby nothing was a problem.

We were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay, the food was excellent, the room although small was perfect to suit our needs to the point that we have re-booked to go back into the same room. The property was tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean.

Everything was in walking distance ie, Beach, Shops, Bournemouth itself.

We can not wait to return again.

This was our 4th stay at Mory House and as ever, everything was first class. Very comfortable rooms with modern decor, an excellent breakfast and an extremely warm welcome that will always make Mory House the only place to stay in this part of the country.

Stayed at the Mory for three nights. Fantastic room, service, food, feeling....everything. We saw a few B&B's around the area as part of a wedding party and thought that the Mory had it all. Great feel about the place and nothing was to much trouble. THE best B&B that I have stayed in and would not consider elsewhere if/when we go back to the area. 2 minute walk from the beach, breakfast was great, room was clean and was a home away from home.

Thanks to all the Mory staff!

I must say that Mory House is one of the most tastefully decorated B&B's that i have ever stayed at. Somewhere I'd most definitely love to claim as my own. The room (no. 2) was lovely, spacious and exceptionally clean, as too was the bathroom. The shower was a bit of a nightmare though. Inconsistent pressure and extreme changes in temperature had me cursing to the point where my bf wondered what all the noise was about.

The foyer and breakfast room were both very welcoming and homely. The breakfast too was substantial and tasty.

Where i believe this place lacks though is in hospitality. The staff didn't introduce themselves and were not as approachable as other staff we have come across in other B&B's. My boyfriend described it as more like a hotel in that respect. That being the main reason why we like staying in B&B's it was a tad disappointing and hence why we didn't rate Mory House 5/5.

It is indeed a beautiful property though. Being within walking distance from the beach and having allocated hassle free parking was handy.

MoryBournemouth, Jane Browne - Owner at Mory House, responded to this review, May 27, 2009
Thank you for your comments.

I have to say that I am horrified & very upset that any of our guests would mark us down on our friendliness and service as we pride ourselves in being family run & friendly without being intrusive in any way. We have a very high percentage of repeat bookings, lots of which we now consider as friends that pay!

We have not been informed by yourself, or previous guests, of any problems with the pressure or temperature in the shower but will, of course, check this out straight away.

I can only reiterate how upset I am that we should receive a comment like this about our service. Please, if you would like to come back again, refer to this review - I will personally ensure that every family member is introduced to you but I must advise there are 6 of us and a dog so it could take some time!

Having stayed in many different b&B's and hotels over the years in Bournemouth when visiting my parents, I have returned again and again to Mory House.
I have stayed in all the different rooms at one time and can vouch for them all!!!
The breakfast is always 1st class and the service and friendly staff make the whole stay so pleasant.
