“Lovely Guest House”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This guest house makes a perfect location for sightseeing around the Bournemouth area. Very clean and welcoming guest house, plenty of tea, coffee etc in room. Huge bed in a large room, free sat tv, off road parking and plenty off eating places nearby.
Debbie was very friendly and did everthing to make our stay as pleasant as possible (she never forgets a name ! ) Recommended to all !

We stayed at Rosscourt for one night and had a great time. The room was very clean and spacious and the breakfast was lovely. Debbie could not do enough for us and was very helpful with restaurants and places to go. The hotel is very near to the beach and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone to stay here.

Excellent hospitality, perfect location! Spotlessly clean, comfortable and very convenient for what we needed in the Bournemouth marathon festival! The parking outside the guesthouse was convenient and we were even allowed to keep the car there until the end of our race. I would definitely book again!

We had a 3 night stay recently and we couldn't have been better looked after. Debbie and Peter made great hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and clean and we always got a good nights rest. Breakfast was always good. Close proximity to an excellent beach and 5 minutes from the shops. The hotel has parking and is only a 10 minute drive to Bournemouth. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Rosscourt for just one night on-route back to Essex from Cornwall. Having stayed for one night in Cornwall in a hotel that leaved a lot to be desired it was a pleasure staying at the Rosscourt. There was a friendly welcome the room was very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was nice. We was given a lot of help as to where to eat of an evening and we will certainly be back again hopefully for abit longer than one night.

We have stayed at the Rossourt a few times now and the standards there are coinsistently high. We've been placed in a different room each time - all of them spotlessly clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and with private bathroom.
There is always a warm welcome from Debbie & Peter and the breakfasts are great - generous & delicious! When you walk in through the hall, past the lovely guest lounge, you get the feeling you are in a well run establishment, a real home from home.
The location is great as everything including the beach, is within easy walking distance.We particularly like the close proximity to local buses as we use public transport to go out exploring. We had great weather this summer, and were able to make the most of visiting the coastal towns in the area. There is also ample parking on site, making this a good base for touring the South Coast, either with or without a car.
Thank you Rosscourt for helping to make our holiday enjoyable, we will be returning.

Great service, nice place to stay. Fried breakfast could have been better (higher quality sausage required...)

Service was personalised and very high throughout our short stay.each is nearby

There is space to park a car on the drive, and the beach is just down the road.
