“Great flat, Great Location, Great Roof Terrace”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Wonderful 1st floor flat in a beautiful Victorian building that used to be a grand hotel, now converted into flats.

The interior of both the communal areas and the flat were clean, bright, airy and spacious. The flat was well equipped and comfortable, with an amazing large roof terrace with views over to the sea. Comfy beds and nice bathrooms. Shower in ensuite very good. Really quiet in the apartment block as well.

There are two parking spaces outside, a side entrance with no stairs and a lift making it easy for the elderly or those with limited mobility/wheelchairs.

We had great communications with the owners prior to our stay. While we were there we noticed the storage trunk on the terrace had warped and was not closing properly so we reported it to the management company. Again - great service from a genuinely concerned property manager, who emailed us later to thank us for reporting this and to say that it had been replaced.

We had wonderful sunny weather which was great, but meant we got woken up quite early as the bedrooms only have white blinds in them so it was very light. The only suggestion we have made to the owner is black out blinds or curtains in the bedroom (something that has also been suggested by previous guests in the comments book in the property).

Lots to see and do in the area - we particularly liked Christchurch Harbour and Compton Acres Gardens.

Overall a wonderful flat in a lovely location.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Compton Acres is lovely and certainly worth a visit when in the area. We will take on board your feedback and look to upgrade the blinds in the master bedroom -- we have fitted a blackout blind in the second bedroom and that seems effective.

“Spacious, light and comfortable”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Compared to a hotel, plenty of room for a couple to spread out. Apartment would take 4 adults easily and is south-facing so has good light. Bed was very comfortable.
Good arrangements for access etc. but somebody nicked one of my parking spaces - not happy! Evenings we could leave car and take one of the frequent and cheap buses to Bournemouth centre.
Overall a very good stay, and only a couple of tweaks short of 5 stars.

“Beautifully presented and very comfortable apartment ~ magnificent roof patio sunsets”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the apartment was warm,spacious, clean, attractively presented and very comfortable. Wished we could have stayed longer ~ Booking was handled very efficiently, plenty of information re: on site parking, keys etc.and great directions. We couldn't resist taking our morning coffee out on the roof patio to admire the sunrise and sea view and were very grateful for the blankets provided by the owners that kept the chilly morning air at bay. The apartment was well equipped with everything one needed. Just a short stroll around the corner Boscombe Park Gardens lead onto the cliff top paths and beach. Lovely ~ look forward to returning maybe later in the year!
