“Great Holiday”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Susie, Has a fantastic and beautiful house. It has everything that you need and susie is a wonderful host. The location is also excellent very close to the beach, and short Taxi's from Bournemouth town centre.

I would recommend this as a great place to stay.

“Best place we've stayed for a holiday in years! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed September 28, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at The Grand last year and intend to book for the same week this year. The apartment was in a fantastic location near both the beach and the town. It was clean to a good standard. We had a fantastic holiday...

We have now returned from our second holiday at the property. Just as last year the service throughout was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this holiday retreat to anyone. (Although I would rather keep quiet to ensure I can get the same place next year!!!!)

“Fabulous spacious accommodation, and location.”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We found the proprietor,Susie, very friendly, helpful, and easy to deal with. The maisonette was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and contemporary. Very good standard of decor. It suited our large party very well, and we will certainly book again. It is ideally situated, in a tree lined avenue, and there are numerous local attractions nearby, e.g. blue flag beaches, the Jurassic Coast, the New Forest, nightlife, shopping, restaurants,& National Trust sites.

“Fantastic accomodation - much bigger than expected”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had my sisters hen weekend here in April 2016 and there were 12 of us. The Grand is so much bigger than we expected so there was plenty of space for us all. The decor is lovely and bedrooms are big! Plenty of communal space too. The house was lovely and clean on arrival and is very well cared for. The beds are very comfy too.

It is only a few minutes walk to the beach front and local shops / cafes only a couple of minutes walk too. It cost us £10 in a taxi into Bournemouth on Saturday night which was great!

Susie was great to deal with and very helpful. She was happy to answer any questions we had and her instructions were very clear.

I would highly recommend staying here and my friends and I will most definitely be back!! Thank you Susie!

“Excellent stay”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Just back from a fab Hen weekend in Bournemouth where we stayed at The Grand. The Grand is a beautiful apartment, immaculate, spotless and decorated beautifully. Myself and the group were delighted with the accommodation which was more than adequate for our needs and Susie has thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable.

I would defiantly recommend The Grand and would most definitely like to return. It's location is perfect. A short walk to the beach and also the high street shops and bars , a short car or taxi ride to Bournemouth Town centre. We all had the best time and this was enhanced by the fact that we had an excellent base at The Grand.

Thank you Susie.

“OUr lovely holiday in Southbourne”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a lovely stay at The Grand. It is spacious, and comfortable, and only 2 minutes walk to the main high street with a wide range of shops. There is plenty of free parking on the road, and enough space on the drive for 2 cars (or 3 at the owners request). The beach is again very close, 20 minutes walk, and a 10 minutes drive to Boscombe Pier. We were very cozy and the price is also very good for its size and location. We will be definately return next year. Thank you Susie.
