Our place is close to the beach (ten minutes walk), at the heart of Bournemouth's pedestrianised historic town centre. The apartment is within easy walking distance of all the local amenities, including: car parks, buses, restaurants, gardens, theatre, bars and shops. You’ll love our place because of the airy rooms with high ceilings and views directly out onto the hustle and bustle of the town centre. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families with kids.
The apartment is on the first floor and forms part of a sympathetic conversion of one of Bournemouth's oldest buildings; Digby Chambers that served as a Digby Institute - young womens refuge many years ago. The apartment enjoys gas fired central heating, WiFi, a decent sized kitchen and views out onto the town centre that can be quite lively at weekends.
The apartment is on the first floor accessible by elevator (3-4 person capacity) and a short flight of stairs up to the front door of the apartment. Post Office Road is pedestrianised and closed to private cars, however there is covered parking ~150m away at the NCP "The Square" Car Park at the bottom of Richmond Hill where a limited number of roadside (metered) parking places are also available. The property is one of the oldest in Bournemouth old town centre and does not lend itself to wheelchair users or others with mobility issues.
Interaction with guests
The apartment is Self-Catering, there is nobody available on site or nearby to advise or assist with minor issues. The apartment is best suited to self reliant people able to look after themselves.
Other things to note
The apartment is located within one of the oldest buildings in Bournemouth. This means it has bags of character at the expense of mod cons such as no automatic doors to/from the building. There is an elevator to all floors, however there is also a short flight of stairs to our flat from where the elevator stops on floor one. Not suitable for wheelchairs nor people with mobility problems. One family reported the elevator as too small for travelling with a baby in a buggy with adults.
