“Very nice friendly guesthouse”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Very friendly welcome, plenty of free parking.Only few minutes walk to main bus route or the entrance to the Boscombe gardens - walk through the chine to the seafront/pier.
Boscombe "town" centre about 15 mins walk.
Nice sized comfortable room, with couple of chairs.
We stayed 2 x nights.

We've just come back from here and we had a very nice time indeed.
The room and shower room were clean and functional for what we needed.
Freeview in the room kept us up to date with the Olympics.
Great parking availability and within reasonable walking distance into the nightlife area and only £5 in a cab on the way back (although one stupid cabbie wouldn't take us there are loads of cabs)
They don't do a cooked any more but they do do a breakfast for £4 based on a continental breakfast of Fruit, Cereal, Yogurt, Pan au chocolat, a good cereal selection, toast and preserves, juices & coffee.
My only niggle (if it can be called that) was the lack of a cooked breakfast as they've stopped doing them but I can understand why they would cut them out.
David and Rachel are lovely hosts, I would recommend this to anyone wanting a break in Bournemouth.

Room Tip: Room 8 was nice :)

We had a very nice overnight stay at The Pinegrove. The room was tastefully decorated, clean and quiet with a high ceiling. Basic but functional bathroom with good water pressure on shower. Located on a quiet residential road with plenty of free parking. 10 minute walk to coast, 25 minutes walk to Pier. Owners very friendly and helpful. Free wifi was a nice touch. Would recommend.

We booked to stay here for one night. The guesthouse was lovely. The owners were very pleasant and welcoming. On arrival they offered us a free upgrade due to a cancellation which was very thoughtful as was 5 months pregnant at the time of staying.

The room was modern, large and clean, the bed extremely comfortable and the linen of good quality. The decor was also quite pleasant...quite hotel boutique-y.

There was decent free parking facilities and the location was nice and quiet at night.
I would recommend as a get-away guesthouse for couples.

There are so many overpriced, bog standard hotels and guesthouses in Bournemouth, so we were pleased this was neither. I would say good value for money and definitely somewhere we would stay again in Bournemouth.

The only slight negative I would say would be that the bathroom could have done with a mirror, although there was a dressing table with mirror in the room. You would also ideally need a car. Although not far from the main town or beach, it was maybe a little too far to walk.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the larger double rooms to the front of the building. It is a room pictured on t...

We booked a night here on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews, and were very happy with our stay.

The room was clean, spacious and light. Tea/Coffee/Biscuits were provided, as well as digital TV.

The hotel is on a quiet street, 5ish mins walk from the beach, and not far from town.

Breakfast was delicious and extremely reasonable. £6 for full english, with cereal, yogurt, toast and fruit.

The hosts were lovely, genuinely friendly and warm.

Note: Take cash if you are planning on paying for breakfast on the day, as there is no cash machine.

This was a last minute trip, booked online, & was greeted with such a warm welcome, and was upgraded free of charge. What can i say but, you cant fault the place, excellent breakfast, quality & choice of food was more than adequate. Nothing was too much trouble. Clean, friendly & genuine hospitality, We would highly recommend.

We stayed here and were very impressed with the place. Very well positioned for our needs and the owners were very pleasant even setting us up a table in the breakfast room when we arrived back withtakeaway fish and chips for supper. A very positive experience.
