Recently spent four nights at The Amarillo B&B and could not recommend it any more! The rooms were spotlessly clean with beautiful decor, and Rob & Paul could not be any more helpful! Only about a half an hour walk (in heels) to the BIC so very convenient.

The Amarillo is easy to spot as it's by far the prettiest B&B on the street - the front has beautiful plants framing the windows and entrance, which has a little seated area just outside the door for smokers that I thought was a really nice use of a small space, nicely lit and surrounded by attractive shrubs. I also...

The Amarillo is a beautiful BnB. We first visited three years ago when our son started at university in Bournemouth, and have been regular guests ever since. Rob and Paul are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble, they have always made us feel extremely welcome, and we have become great friends . We have stayed in a different...

Wonderful hotel with beautiful decor. The quality of the rooms is what you would expect from an establishment charging much more for them. Every small detail is taken care of and our room was spotlessly clean. The location is great for the town centre and a short taxi ride has you there in 5 minutes of you don't like walking....

Absolutely BRILLIANT! This has got to be the best B&B ever! My fiancé and I were made welcome right from the moment we booked. We were arriving early to see the air show on the Thursday and so they arranged to give us our keys and allowed us to unload our stuff in to our room before the specified time...

Best hotel we have experienced in Bournemouth. Beautiful rooms and excellent service. We are now certain to return and will find it difficult to stay anywhere else. Rob the owner was fantastic and very attentive at all times. We upgraded to a superior room which was faultless with superb facilities. Very warm and friendly experience and a thoroughly enjoyable weekend...

We stayed at Amarillo for a few nights after Christmas. Our hosts were charming and welcoming, and the rooms were spotlessly clean. The continental breakfast was extensive - everything you might want. We chose the small double room which has a tiny shower cubicle. We understand there are plans to change this. If we return we would choose a larger...
