When we first arrived there was no answer on the door. Others in our party had pre booked in at the maybe better Lyn Glary. close at hand. our friends at lyn glary were allowed to hold on to the rooms but we felt we never even had the opurtunity to offer more money to get the same treatment and...

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay but we have no record anywhere of your stay with us. We are a different type of guest house from the Lyn Glary as we do not accept stag or hen groups and have no bar, because of this you can not compare the two buisness`s. Most of our guest do tend to...

We were so pleased with everything this B&B had to offer, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very tasteful, comfortable and immaculate. We would visit again and recommend it to all our friends. Thank you to all concerned.

When beginning our search on where to stay we were going to pay a fortune to stay in a 4* hotel but we are now so glad we didn't. With such a large choice of places to stay in Bournemouth we certainly found the best! Rob and Paul made us feel so welcome and Rob's breakfast is to die for...

I have stayed at the Amarillo a few times now and find that the hotel is fantastic value for money. The owners can not do enough for you and make you feel very welcome. One of the reasons I keep coming back is that I want that personal touch which I do get when I`m there. They dont have a...

I came down with my wife for a wedding and booked after reading all the favourable reviews submitted from other TA members. We then went to meet up with others in the party at a nearby similar guesthouse and realised that the Amarillo offered poor value for money in comparison. Amarillo was charging us nearly 100 pound a night for...

If guest could please check our web site before booking you will find we are only a 7 bedroomed guest house. We do not claim to have any sitting rooms, function rooms or bar. As for the prices! These can also be found on the web site. We have never in the 4 years we have been here ever charged...

My husband and i stayed at The Amarillo for 3 nights and can honestly say that there could not have been a better place to stay in Bournemouth. The owners, Rob and Paul were really friendly and could not do enough to help. They were able to recommend some great places to eat and visit which made our holiday even...

Lovely place to stay, clean rooms, the owners are very friendly. The breakfast was lovely, lots of choice. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the beach and town, which means it is lovely and quiet. The owners recommended a great restaurant and fun things to do while we were there. This hotel/B&B is great value for money, I...

My husband and I have visited this great B & B twice now just because we love it. The owners Rob and Paul are two genuinely nice people. They make you feel extremely welcome, Rob being an excellent chef (you'll love the breakfast) and Paul is very much the congenial host. They really pay attention to detail and it shows....

I read many revues of this delightful place before booking and was not disappointed. The Amarillo proved to be a superb choicefor anyone wanting to stay at a spotlessly clean, friendly and well-run establishment. We had spent the previous two nights in a 4* hotel which was fine but cost, of course, over twice the price of this little gem.We...
