The Park 24
Ranked #69 of 134 Bournemouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 4, 2013

A most idealic B&B about a 20mins walk to Bournemouth Pier/shopping/etc... in a quiet residential streetnear Meyrick Park. Fiona and Chris were wonderful hosts - discreet, but attentive. Afternoon tea in front of the roaring log fire when we arrived was heavenly.
Our room was extremely comfortable, as was the large bathroom/wet-room shower. The attention to detail in the furnishings, TV + Bose Wave, water/tea/coffee/fruit/choc, bathroom products & accessories was superb.
The breakfasts are to die for - nothing seemed too much trouble for Fiona as she rustled up whatever we wanted.
We will definitely be planning to stay again.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms - we stayed in the Beaumont Room

My mum, my friend and I stayed here on the 19th October for one night and I only wish we could have stayed longer!!

We were greeted with super friendly hosts (professional but so welcoming) and the nicest candle smells. The house is stunning with the best taste of decor. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious with amazing beds and top end showers. There was a TV and loads of little goodies and plenty of space for two. They also have a coffee and tea tray with goodies like freshly made flapjacks, chocolate and fruit. They have an adorable dog called Lula but she doesn't go in the bedrooms.

The hosting is fabulous with complimentary drinks and snacks in the afternoon whilst enjoying playing board games, watching TV or reading one of the many books in the incredible lounge on the gorgeous sofas!!

The breakfast is first class with everything you could think of - granola, yoghurt, fruit and juice to start, tea or coffee, porridge, toast and of course the grand cooked breakfast. Any eggs, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms, fried bread (which was beyond delicious) and baked beans.

Nothing is too much for Fiona and Chris who are warm but not annoying and always make sure you have everything you need. The best thing was the attention to details like goodies in the room, excellent decor and Celebrations in the lounge!

We only hope we can come back in the summer when the Wendy House is open and we can enjoy the beauty of the garden!

Room Tip: Both rooms are FABULOUS! If you want to experience the amazing waterfall tap, choose the Milne room...

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend 13th Sep,as we had a wedding to go to and thought we would extend our trip slightly, so glad we did. The house is amazing throughout and spotlessly clean, even the beautiful garden is tidy. The deco and furnishings even down to the carpets are opulent. Our room the larger of the two was perfect with a super comfy bed with silky soft sheets and massive bathroom. The breakfast is yummy and hearty.This B&B is only made better by the wonderfully welcoming and friendly Fiona and Chris really enjoyed their company throughout our stay. Their local knowledge made our trip more productive, as we didn't eat in a bad restaurant ;-) Would whole heartily recommend over staying in centre of B'mouth

Room Tip: Either room, you won't go wrong but the larger one is lovely!

Genuinely nice couple running the most beautiful, charming B&B I have ever been to. Decorated with lots of love, paying attention to the details, great breakfast...the perfect getaway. Will definitely visit again. Perfect for couples, singles or group of friends.

We stayed at The Park 24 for a weekend getaway and we are so glad we did. The Park 24 is amazing! The rooms were gorgeous, the whole place so well decorated. Our room was at the front of the house, with the most comfortable bed ever. The room had a flat tv, a nespresso machine and everything else you could ever need. The bathroom was brilliant with a shower you could only dream of. Fantastic quality complimentary products on hand

We were made to feel so welcome by Chris and Fi and loved our time there. We were served a wonderful breakfast, with enough options for anyone.

The only qualm was the weather was too good to have need for the log fire.

If you need somewhere to stay in Bournemouth you must stay here! We will be back!

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write your lovely review, we hope we provide the little "extras" that major chain hotels can not offer.
We think beds, and bed linen is very important when you are away from home, so we make a big effort with both!! There is nothing worse than a bed which makes you feel as if you are sleeping on a bag of old bullets!
Yes, the log fire will be wound up as soon as we have some chillier weather, methinks we would all fry alive at the moment with the current temperatures!
Hoping to see you again in the near future, if you are planning a return visit to sunny Bournemouth.

We have stayed in numerous b and bs but this one tops the lot! I was 5 months pregnant and we already had a 2 year old so coming here was like a haven of complete peace and luxury. We wanted to get away for a bit of us time and to enjoy the B'mouth Air show. The decor is exceptional and attention to detail amazing. The owners, Fiona and Chris, have thought of everything from Nespresso coffee machine and Bose stereo system in the bedroom to candles and soft, thick towels in the bathroom, a vintage style summer house in the garden to a hearty breakfast...don't worry about the calorific context just enjoy! F and C couldn't do enough for us, even booking us a top table in a restaurant they recommended (also fab) and sharing a taxi with us too. We are so sorry it has taken us over a year to write this review but it has been on our minds to do it and we never forgot. We will def stay again if we venture down to B'mouth in the future and by the way Fiona and Chris, we had a baby girl, born just before Christmas! Rebecca and Richard

I booked to stay at the Park24 after reading all of the fabulous reviews and have to say I was not disappointed. I was looking for somewhere special to stay with my husband for our first anniversary and this was certainly the place. Fiona and Chris are wonderful hosts. They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and ensure that you enjoy your stay. Fiona helped to suggest and book nice restaurants, organise taxis and informed the restaurants that it was our anniversary which meant that we were lucky enough to be greeted to a glass of bubbly. The house itself is simply stunning and even nicer than the pictures portray. There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere and lula, the dog, makes you feel instantly at home. I would recommend and indeed have recommended the Park24 to friends and family and will be looking forward to making a return visit.
