The room was spatious and beautifully decorated, the hotel is well located (only separated from the beach by a nice garden). We stayed here for 2 nights, and the host was very kind and welcoming. If we were to go to Bournemouth again, we would book here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting Bournemouth. Ideal location for both Boscombe and Bournemouth. Bus stop is less than a 2 minute walk. 10 minute walk to Boscombe pier. Great breakfast and friendly owner. Just what you need if you are on a budget. No complaints, highly recommend it.

Very pleasantly surprised on entering this well located hotel in Boscombe, which started with a lovely warm welcome from our Proprietor. It was bright, very clean and spacious throughout and I loved the high ceilings and tasteful decoration. Our room was a family room for myself, husband and daughter and we had plenty of space and storage for us all.... More

As other reviewers have commented, at first glance from the outside it appears a little dated but, once inside, you get a glimpse of a modern hotel / B&B with a slight nod to its history (some very beautiful old solid wooden furniture in the hallway, heavy wooden doors, stained glass landing window, well-established rear garden....). Our bedroom was a... More

Upon arrival, the outside looked fairly dated. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the very spacious and bright hallway. We had a ground floor twin room which had a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a shower with sink; as well as a nice view of the garden, which was not overlooked! We shared a toilet in the hallway, but appeared... More

Brilliant find, a real gem of a place. Spacious well decorated rooms, plenty of free parking, excellent breakfast and a host who cannot do enough for you. All that and very good value for money. I would definitely book again.

This is a nice little bed and breakfast about 15 minutes walk from the seafront and 25 minutes from the train station. My room was clean, light and quiet. When I arrived, they had upgraded me from a single to a twin room, as they had vacancies, so I had a good sized room too. The breakfast was very good... More

I stayed one night whilst attending a workshop in Bournemouth. The room was simple but well equipped and spotlessly clean, the service was very friendly and the whole place has a welcoming atmosphere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boscombe Grange A large house, full of exciting features, to give the perfect solution for families and friends to gather together and enjoy a fabulous holiday by the sea. Well-behaved Stag and Hen parties are also welcomed at the property, which can be booked for a long weekend or a week. Bournemouth Grange is situated in its own grounds and comfortably sleeps up to 28 over the 4 floors. Just 5 minutes' walk away from the award winning family friendly beach at Bournemouth and Boscombe, the house is also just 2 minutes away from the beautiful Boscombe Chine Gardens with their children's play areas, a mini golf course, a basketball court, a nature trail and a public art arena. The property itself is light and spacious, with charming period victorian touches and plenty of modern facilities. An elegant winding staircase in the entrance hall reveals the two-story stained glass windows, the solid doors, attractive sash windows and tiled cast iron fireplaces in many of the bedrooms. Bournemouth Grange has a lovely warm and quality feel within the property. Set in its own private grounds, the property has ample parking for 7 cars and there is plenty of free-parking in the road. An enclosed garden at the rear of the property is a great place for al fresco dining and relaxing, with a four-ring gas BBQ and plenty of relaxing colourful garden chairs. There is also the option of a Lazy-Spa Jacuzzi Pool, at a small extra cost. Only 1 mile from the town centre of Bournemouth, this area has become famous for its seaside water sports. The Coastal Activity Park at Boscombe Beach offers over 20 activities on the sea and sand, so there is always plenty to do for any type of party group and for all ages. There are the traditional bucket-and-spade and deck-chair delights as Bournemouth Bay offers over 7 miles of golden sands. A trip on the Land Train from Boscombe to Bournemouth Pier is a must, as there is some wonderful cliff to views and plenty of choice to enjoy stop-offs in the tea rooms, ice cream parlours, cafés, traditional pubs and fish restaurants. Then of course, there is the famous Bournemouth Night-Life, with streets full of restaurants, wine bars, cocktail bars, themed pubs and some amazing night clubs...so you can feast and party through the night. ... more   less
