The dining room is always clean with a wide selection of cereals and fresh fruit on offer as well as yogurts and cooked breakfasts on request. Karl has also prepared a small selection of gluten free cereals. There's decent parking across both The Strand and The Ravensbourne and the...

We had a pleasant long weekend at The Strand. Very clean and great breakfast, I liked the art deco touches and fresh flowers on the tables in the dining room. We had an en-suite room and we were quite happy with everything, although parking can be a problem at busy times and we could hear people going to the shared...

The Strand has an excellent rating on TripAdvisor and rightly so. Its conveniently located in Boscombe, has friendly and efficient staff, is good value and serves an excellent breakfast. The room was very comfortable, we had an en-suite room and the bathroom was very clean. The walls are a little thin so you can hear others comings and goings but...

Great stay; super value for money and super friendly staff that also cooks your full English in the morning. 3 minutes walk to the mainstreet, 10 minutes to the beach. We were here in March but in summer this place is very near nightlife and beach

Me and my husband spent a night recentlyt and we could not fault it. Beautiful, clean room, nice atmosphere. We arrived quite late but the landlord/ manager was still very friendly and welcoming. Full English breakfast was lovely the next day.

This is a lovely budget hotel, ideally located to explore Bournemouth and surrounding areas. Walking distance to Boscombe beach (also Bournemouth if you are keen you can walk along the beach) Buses leave on the main road to Bournemouth and from there you can get to many parts of Dorset. Carl and his staff are welcoming and nothing is too...
