I have to go to a conference in Bournemouth in April. Looks like I'll have to fly to Southampton and rent a car to get there.
I may want to avoid the conference hotels and stay somewhere more relaxed - maybe an upmarket B&B/guesthouse and maybe even not in the town, but close by.
Any ideas out there?
I suggest Wood Lodge!
It's in a good location and has reasonable fascilities. Great breakfasts!
Mmm... here we are: www.woodlodgehotel.co.uk
Hi Ian - I get to Bournmouth a lot and stay wherever is cheap(ish) - I can heartily recommend The Blue Palms - http://www.bluepalmshotel.com/
Paul and Avril are nice people but the only snag is that they are often fully booked (for the obvious reasons) and so if I can't get in then I make do with wherever.
I actually don't like Bournemouth but if I need to be there then such is life. Poole, next door, though is cracking - much better pubs but a darn sight more expensive for hotels
