My friends and I had a great stay at The Grand. The property is deceptively spacious and very well presented.
The location was perfect for us....just a few minutes walk to the cliffs and pathways down to the beach in one direction, and a couple of minutes walk to the high street in the other direction, which had a good selection of bars, restaurants, take-aways and just about everything else we needed.
The kitchen was really well equipped for when we wanted to cook there and beds were super comfy.
The owner was really helpful with her communications and would certainly look to stay there again if the need arises!
My large family group stayed at the property very recently, and we were all delighted with how attractive and comfortable it was. It is tastefully furnished and decorated, in contemporary style, and the standard of cleanliness, and the facilities, are first rate. The location is brilliant, being close to numerous amenities, attractions, beauty spots, and beaches. The clifftops and beach, and local shops, are just a short walk away. Whatever your age, or interests, there is something nearby. The proprietor was extremely helpful, easy to deal with, and efficient, and was keen to make your stay troublefree. We plan to stay again for future family get-togethers.
We stayed at The Grand for a pre Christmas family get together in December. We had a really lovely time.
The house was big and spacious with lovely decor and furnishings.
The kitchen was well stocked with every modern convenience, The beds were super comfortable.
The Grand is only a few minutes walk from the seafront. The high street has a very comprehensive selection of supermarkets, cafe's, restaurants and interesting individual shops. Bournemouth centre is less than 10 minutes drive away.
We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who wants a fabulous place to stay.
Stayed at the property for two nights with some friends. The house itself was very spacious and clean. Plenty of bathrooms along with bedrooms. The owner was extremely polite and informative. Would recommend this house to anyone looking to come up to Bournemouth for a few days. Will definitely be staying again!
We stayed at the hideaway over the Christmas period and it really was incredible. Such a lovely place to stay for a week. Was a great base for our family holiday. We were able to explore beautiful Bournemouth coast from here.
The welcome pack was so thoughtful and well received after a long journey. The dogs loved the treats too.
The hideaway had plenty of room and all the equipment we could possibly need to stay comfortably which meant we could cook and clean with out any hassle. Beautifully decorated throughout with a modern stylish feel. Felt like a luxury home away from home. Also had a fab little garden.
We have already made enquiries to return for our summer holiday.
Thanks again Suzie!
We were highly impressed with The Grand. The property was spotlessly clean and homely with lovely decor and furnishings and comfortable beds.
The kitchen had all modern conveniences and plenty of crockery; glasses and cooking equipment. The Grand is in a prime location just a few minutes walk from lovely sandy beaches and the high street with supermarkets; cafe's; restaurants and pubs. This property is a real gem of a find and we are hoping to come again in the future.
