If you want a traditional seaside stay with character, look past the big-name hotels and book in to a good old fashioned British B&B. St Michael’s Friendly Guest House is a charming property in a prime location right on the town’s West Cliff. From here you’re mere paces away from Bournemouth’s famous golden sand and minutes from the vibrant town centre. There’s a mix of family and double guest rooms with a TV, tea and coffee making facilities and free WiFi.
If you’re coming to Bournemouth as part of a stag or hen party, it will also cater for groups of up to 10 men or 14 women off-season and the guesthouse is within easy reach of the town’s top nightspots. St Michael’s is primarily a B&B but proprietor Eileen will more than happily whip you up an evening meal if you’d prefer to dine here.
