“Loved it !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

We stayed for 3 days & had an amazing time. Gill & Norman are so friendly & they were so good with our autistic son Zach who is 16, he thoroughly enjoyed himself & especially Gill's lovely breakfast & home-made jam !! Our room was lovely & very clean & lots of little extra touches. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel & will be going back in the near future.

We Stayed here in the summer during the air festival....this was our third time here ...This is a great place to stay when in bournemouth ...
all the shops are local and the beach is only a few mins walk down the road...
The breakfast is out of this world...and above all the hosts jill and Norman are the best you can ask for....hopefully see you soon..

Just a quick review to say that we normally book Premier Inns but due to it being the Bank Holiday weekend there was limited availability. But we shall never do this again as our employee phoned me to ask me to add this review as he had been so well cared for and fed (most importantly). He really appreciated the hospitality and was impressed by the accommodation. Many thanks we will book again!

The room was spacious and extremely clean. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The owners were away but the 'stand ins' were a credit. Very friendly and hospitable. Highly recommended and we will be back.

I have stayed larger budget hotels in the area,but did not enjoy the experience, too many corners have been cut to achieve the price.
The housekeeping here is excellent, I had a great nights sleep and an good breakfast with home made Jams & Marmalade on offer.
Keep up the good work Norman & Gill, you deserve to be very busy
I will return.

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at Gill and Normans lovely B&B.
The bed and room was extremely comfy and I don't think you could find a tastier breakfast . Would definitely recommend highly to anyone.

We stayed at this establishment for two nights. It was clean, efficient and Norman and Gill the proprieters were extremely friendly, welcomng and helpful. The room had several extras like bottles of water, ample toiletries etc. We would certainly recommend this b and b to anybody as we felt very comfortable to such a pleasant and warm environment.. The breakfast was superb as well.
