Reviewed March 16, 2014

This was the 2nd time we have stayed at The Topaz both when visiting the BIC so it was perfect location. Jamie very helpful and recommended a lovely Indian restaurant at the end of the road, which was lovely. Breakfast was delicious and cooked very well too.

Topaz Hotel was a great find for a recent overnight stay we had in Bournemouth. It is in an excellent location for the seafront, town centre and the Triangle area which is very close by (and has a number of popular bars/clubs if you're in Bournemouth to party!) Jamie was a very welcoming host, even giving us a choice of rooms on arrival. All very clean and nicely done out. We felt immediately at home. Our double room was spacious and had everything we needed. The bathroom was small but perfectly fine for our overnight stay (incidentally the other room we were shown had a slightly smaller bedroom but much larger bathroom so this is more an observation than a complaint!) The shower could do with a lot more power behind it and did take a while to warm up but, again, for one night this was fine. Breakfast is served very early (not unusual for a BnB), however, when we were leaving Jamie did say that if we booked again to go direct which would be cheaper and we could then opt out of breakfast so this is worth bearing in mind. I would have no hesitation in returning here next time I'm in Bournemouth where, unlike the Topaz, some hotel accommodation can have sky high prices which do not match the quality of what you receive!

Room Tip: Arrive early after check-in time and you may get a choice of rooms. Also, book direct for cheaper...

Great location!!! Great value for money! Very nice rooms. Car park bit small, but had no problem with parking. Breakfast could be a bit more continental. Great service, friendly and professional. We hope to be there again.

This was the 3rd time we had stayed at The Topaz in 12 months. I thank the day I first saw this place advertised in the Bournemouth guide. As always it was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and you can't always say that and mean it. Lots to choose from at breakfast and cooked to perfection. There is free parking at the rear of the property and free WiFi. It is situated within walking distance of the town, BIC, The Pavilion and the beach. This will always be the 1st place I'll try whenever going to Bournemouth.

This B and B is a cracking example of what happens when you do the basic things very well! On our journey to the topaz we where unfortunately running late so we contacted them to explain as normally doors close at 9, but we where told not to worry as someone would still be about. On arrival we where meet with a warm and friendly reception and nothing was to much trouble. The room was very big and you could tell was maintained well and money had been well spent. Breakfast the following morning was also just as good including continental and full English, with plenty of anything you could possible wish for to set you up for the day!
Like I say it wasn't a spectacular masterpiece but never the less a brilliant example of what happens when you put good food with good friendly service, a nice atmosphere and a lovely room to spend the night! If I could say one thing it would be to book it directly with the hotel as is cheaper than booking threw late rooms.
We shall certainly be returning when we next go to Bournemouth!
Many thanks to the owner and staff.

the topaz is ideally situated near the town of Bournemouth, it is approx 10 minutes walking distance down to the shops and beach. we drive a passat estate which was just passable through the entrance to the car park, anything larger and you will not enter to the spaces to park, i would say a car park is a must in bournemouth as parking in the streets is very limited and public car parks can be quite costly.
the room was at the front on a busy road, but i must say once the double glazed window was closed, hardly notice any noise. the room was large with a kingsize bed,really comfy, and 2 singles easily accommodated, ideal as a family room. the ensuite was large, and spotless, as was all the house, very tastefully decorated throughout. the owner was very helpful, and pleasant but not over bearing. the breakfast is prepared and is on a buffet style,handy as peoples appetites vary. plenty of variety and piping hot.
we asked for advise as to where to eat, the goat and tricycle was recommended, i have to say from the outside you would more than likely pass by, but DON'T the meals were outstanding , and excellent value for money. well worth giving them a try. we will definitely come back to the topaz and advise anyone to stay for a visit, you won't be disappointed.
