11 of us took over this lovely guest house for the Air Show Weekend. Great stay, very comfy beds and all tastefully decorated and very modern. Nice "extra touches" like the coffee, tea, muffins and biscuits for afternoon break and tea and coffee making facilities in rooms. Would definitely go again and highly recommend to anyone visiting Bournemouth or even living here as I do !!

Room Tip: All our friends were happy with their rooms, we stayed in Orchid (ground floor No 6) small but perfe...

Friendly staff who made me feel comfortable and welcome from the very beginning, completely stylish decor throughout, spotlessly clean absolutely everywhere, easy breakfast, late check out time (hurray!), great location but need advice on parking. Perfect night away - thank you!

Stayed here last for 2 nights in room 2 (black and white) and it was such a lovely atmosphere. The guesthouse is very stylish and spotlessly clean. The staff are so lovely and welcoming, and the location is brilliant, a few minutes away from the town centre and a 10 minute walk to the seafront! Breakfast was delicious too, with pastries, muffins and yoghurts galore. I would definitely recommend the bamboo guesthouse if you're planning to stay in bournemouth!

Room Tip: Room 2 was lovely and has a gorgeous bathroom

I stayed here with my husband last weekend and would highly recommend it. We were made to feel very welcome and our room (the master bedroom) was spacious, clean and very stylish. The breakfast was delicious and it really felt like a home-from-home.

spent 3 days here during the heatwave. Very central location only 2 min walk to centre of bournemouth town. 2 mile walk from boscombe (found retaurants better here) 5 min drive to westcliff where you can park free and walk down to less densely populated beaches. Stayed in the largest room. Very clean and modern. Efficient check in. Breakfast basic help yourself but fruit/cereal/croissant/juice/coffee/muffins/yoghurt. Chilled help yourself water. Only 2 negatives, firstly no parking opposite as the car park has been sold so we suggest parking in the primark car park at the bottom of the hill on exeter road for £5 a day (but you are not able to view your car overnight) the other negative is the work men working on the recently sold car park who start work early doors and are incredibly loud. Wonderful high powered fan which you can help yourself to from the hallway. Definitely would return if wishing to stay in bournemouth town centre.

What a fabulous place. Stayed with my teenage daughter during an event weekend. Attentive, yet unobtrusive manager. Fabulous room with good decor and superbly clean. Wifi in rooms. Centrally located between town centre and the beach. Fabulous after care service too - we left our keys and oyster cards behind and no time was wasted in returning them - very carefully packaged to disguise the contents! Many, many thanks Kevin. Would recommend to anyone and definitely stay again. Penny O'Neill

A nicely decorated place, located on a small hill within easy walking distance to the city center and the beach. The owner was very friendly and gave us a great recommendation for a restaurant after asking in detail what we had in mind for dinner. The room was nicely designed but much smaller than I had expected. There is no lounge area either, so it's ok for one or two nights, for a longer stay I'd have felt cramped. The view from the rooms is not that great, either looking out on a busy street or a parking lot. There could be a bit more care put into breakfast. It's mostly "help yourself to anything in the fridge"-style, although there was very nice fresh pastry to choose from. All in all a nice place at a good price, although I wouldn't describe it as a luxury accommodation, as they do themselves on their webpage.

Room Tip: The ones looking out to the parking lot, e.g. room 4, are more quite.
