    loved the host, he was so friendly and made us feel very welcome

    Parking was a little bit tricky, don't even bother trying to park if your female!! I am a lady, and would rate myself 8 out of 10 for parking, but I would not of even attempted to try and get my car between the gap of the two houses!! very tricky, my boyfriend even got me to take a picture of him driving out!!

    Friendly staff , although decor lets the rooms down they were clean and breakfast was ok.

    We stayed in room 2 and although served a purpose it has to be said the pictures on the site made it look a lot better than in real life. The decor and electrics left alot to be desired especially the plastic trunking up the walls and across the ceiling. The wall sockets near the bed were nearly being pulled off the wall when you removed a plug. The en-suite could do with a serious dose of lime scale remover and the silicone around the shower area needs removing and applying properly. Very poor standard of finish.

    The hotel is well-located, only a few minutes walk from the pier and town centre. There is free parking (albeit via a very tight passageway) and is cheap (we paid £50 for a double). Breakfast was reasonably nice (despite some issues with service), and a nice wall mounted flat screen TV had lots of channels to choose from.

    The hotel - despite what the pictures on the website suggest - is quite tired looking and in definite need of a bit of updating. We could manage in the miniscule en suite, but the lumpy mattress was a bit of a challenge. The owner Jorge was friendly enough, but not very attentive at breakfast - gave us both coffee when we asked for one tea and one coffee, and a huge gap between bringing out my partner's breakfast and mine (my partner had almost finished his when mine was brought out, without an apology). Also, we had to ask for toast for two, whereas all other guests were automatically brought theirs, etc. This sounds a bit petty I know but all these little things added together made our breakfast experience not the pleasant one it should have been. Overall we would rate the experience as 'okay'. We probably wouldn't stay there again, as despite being cheap, a comfy bed is a pretty important must in any hotel stay. Also, as described above, we felt the customer service to be slightly below par.

    We arrived after the scheduled check in time but were still made welcome by the owners. Nothing was much trouble for them. Jorge was very welcoming and friendly at breakfast. Very close to the seafront and plenty of choice in eaterys within walking distance.

    The room we stayed in had without a doubt the smallest bathroom we had experienced but this was expected from reading previous reviews. Parking would be a problem if you could not find a spot in the hotel car park. We didn't have any trouble though.

    It was very clean and bed was very comfortable. Owner and staff were very friendly and helful and they catered for vegetarian breakfast, only reasonable to give some prior notice. We would certainly like to stay there again.

    the gentlemen greeting us at the front was so enthusiastic and kind he did everything possible to make our stay in bournemouth enjoyable. the rooms are clean and well maintained we've paid more per night in many hotels in bournemouth but this one was the best value, the beach , shops and restaurants are all in close walking distance.

    the stairs are steep and small makes it a bit difficult if you have alot of luggage.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Jorge was extremely friendly and very helpful. Room was clean and adequate for our needs. There is car parking at the rear which is free but spaces are limited and the entry/exit is quite narrow. We had a great stay at the Shirley Hotel which is great value for money.
