I’ve been to Bournemouth many times over the years and the Apartment location was ideal for the beach as it is a mile from Bournemouth Pier from the top of West Cliff but that was the best thing about it, along with the fact my kids had a bedroom instead of all being in the same room.
I did have a number of concerns though with the cleanliness of the bathroom and the kitchen utensils, I had to clean both areas thoroughly before using. The bath in particular was not cleaned properly.
St Michael’s Road, where the apartment is located, has deteriorated significantly since my last visit and I was shocked at the condition of the area and there were a number of groups of people that did not make it comfortable, especially in the evening. Not great with young kids.
I expected a much higher standard of property and area for the price I paid for the week we stayed.
