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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

The location was great, we were right at the centre of Bournemouth, surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants, as well as the bus station. The house is cosy with all the necessary household items. We were very satisfied with our stay, definitely would return if we can! :)

Right in the centre of Bournemouth, the flat was ideal for walking into the Town Centre and Gardens for my parents who are 80+ years old. Property is safe with good security, intercom and also a lift to the accommodation. Roger, the host, had mentioned there may be a bit of noise in the evening at the weekend from people leaving pubs etc. but my parents said they slept well, so no worries there. The flat is very spacious and is fully furnished, including kitchen ware, which was great. Thank you very much.

The published description clearly states Bournemouth town centre as the location and its proximity to all sorts of entertainment including "bars" as follows - "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". Bournemouth is a university town, the flat is in the pedestrianised area where people are free to roam without fear of vehicles, so yes, it does get very lively in the summer with stag/hen/prom parties/people out and about on warm summer nights enjoying themselves well beyond midnight. The flats central location is it's strength and its weakness. I doubt there is a quiet apartment anywhere in the old town centre during the summer holiday period. Cleanliness - we took photographs of how we found the flat after this stay, the first time we have felt the need to do so. The house rules were completely ignored in this respect. Nevertheless we are intending to have the kitchen professionally deep cleaned. Access - we describe the apartment as unsuitable for people with mobility problems and wheelchairs, we describe it as a converted Victorian building. There is always going to be a compromise with historic, listed buildings in conservation areas, this building is no exception. The lift holds 2-3 people at a time serving fifteen flats in a very old building which saves walking up to the first floor where our apartment is located. We see the fact there is a lift in the building as a positive, as other similar buildings in the old town don't have a lift at all.
