The 4-star Shirley Bed and Breakfast offers affordable and comfortable accommodation with excellent service, all in a close proximity to Bournemouth’s award-winning seven-mile stretch of golden sandy beaches.
Shirley B&B is situated in the popular West Cliff part of Bournemouth, along St Michael’s Road, putting guests close to the restaurants and shops around the Triangle area of town and the Commercial Road high street.
Getting to Shirley B&B is a breeze. It’s conveniently situated off a main transport route through the town just two miles from the main train and bus station and seven miles from Bournemouth Airport. If you’re driving here, the B&B is just minutes from the main Wessex Way through the town and there is parking at the hotel for a charge of £3 per night.
To get to the beach, just take the short stroll across to the West Overcliff, which looks down across to Bournemouth Pier. From here you can walk down to the sand on a sloping path past the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) or take the funicular cliff lift straight down onto the Promenade.
The B&B puts you close to the heart of town, less than half a mile from the main Square with its restaurants and shops. The Pavilion Theatre is a ten-minute stroll away and the Lansdowne, home of Bournemouth and Poole College and several Bournemouth University buildings is just over a mile. If you want Bournemouth University and Arts University’s main Talbot Campus, this is two and a half miles from Shirley B&B.
Room for all
The Shirley B&B has fifteen bedrooms with various types of accommodation including single, double, twin, treble and family rooms. There are two rooms on the ground floor if mobility is an issue – one double and one family room. The bedrooms are all ensuite and come with tea and coffee making facilities, LCD television with DVD player and a hairdryer. Guests can also request a fridge and an iron with a board if required.
Although it was built back in the 1820s, the B&B has been fully modernised and there is free WiFi internet access throughout the building – in all public areas and in the guest rooms too. Children of all ages are welcome to stay at the Shirley B&B, with child rates applicable for guests up to twelve years old. Pets can also come and stay with their owners in any of the bedrooms. Same sex groups and stag and hen parties, however, cannot be accommodated. Check-in is from 2pm and you must check out by 11am on the last day of your stay.
A hearty breakfast
Breakfast at the Shirley B&B is served from 8:30 to 9:30am. Guests are welcome to help themselves to items from the breakfast buffet including fruit juices, yoghurts, fruit, conserves and cereals, croissants, ham and cheese slices.
If you prefer a hot breakfast, you can choose a lighter option like boiled egg and soldiers, beans on toast or omelette or plump for an indulgent full English with bacon, sausage, eggs, the works. There is a vegetarian fry-up available too, as well as a range of toasted breakfast sandwiches to fuel you up for a full day on the beach.
