We were shown the accomodation, given keys and then left to get on with it without the staff being around all the time. The staff were nice enough and trusting, we were trusted to pay when we checked out.

This location has real character simply because it was full of characters- and in this respect I trust locals- shame we didn&'t take part inside the comedy open mic

I liked the size and had great kitchen facilities, parking off road, it was small but good! We pretty much booked out the whole spot for me and my friends for a weekend away and was fantastic to get to and from the Bournmouth town centre! With the bus stop outside as well!

  Customer Review 

The woman who checked us in was as warm and friendly as can be and really cared about us enjoying our stay. The room was clean, warm and big enough, and had a homey feeling to it. Showers and toilets are very good and clean. It&'s not quite as bad as the other reviews say it is in terms of cleanliness and safety of the area! Also the bus stop is literally right outside the door.

A very nice spot to stay at an inexpensive price. Stayed there once prior to with a friend but it has been restored since and the difference is obvious when you walk in. It&'s much cleaner now too! The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the bar downstairs was full of character too. Would recommend it to anyone!

It&'s a very nice owner who has taken it for nyelig and has done much for the 2 rooms, however there are plenty of items that can be done better. but the kitchen is large and in exceptional condition and even has a machine machine. besides, there is Jamie who is the daily manager of the place and he is very friendly and will always help you if there are not too busy down within the cozy bar exactly where he is also a bartender sometimes.

Staff couldn&'t have been a lot more helpful. Let me check in early, greeted me cheerfully right after a long day at work and made me feel very welcome. Really like it!

  Customer Review 

Having stayed there previously, which was ok, I was a lot more than surprised at the make-over. They really have done the spot up! It&'s real value for money at a tenner a night, so putting up with snoring strangers is a small price to pay. The facilities are the biggest surprise; you really don&'t expect all that for such a small sum. I&'ll be going back!

Great for the price, was an experience! The bar down stairs shows true English bar culture.
