I was lucky enough to stay in Boscombe during the hottest week of the year so made full use of the massive sea facing sun terrace equipped with sun loungers and a new 6 seater outdoor table and chairs. Burlington Mansions is a beautiful Victorian Hotel that has been converted to luxury apartments, the photos don't really do justice to the apartment which has very high ceilings, a massive master double that opens onto the terrace and good sized 2nd double bedroom. Comfy beds, good shower, designated parking spaces and wifi can be found here. The public areas including a lift are finished to a very high standard. A 10 minute walk away from the blue flag Boscombe Beach where you can hire sun loungers/ deck chairs and enjoy Urban Reef Cafe and Restaurant , which we did either for take out coffee and croissants or lunch. Great location for walks along the beach to Bournemouth and beyond we didn't really use the car at all. Would certainly stay again.
Nice location and a good holiday, but:
Faulty door lock on arrival.
Issue with boiler so unable to put heating on when required.
Out of date/incorrect literature in the apartment for hob and boiler.
Dishwasher that had 2-3” of pungent water in it, and that needed to be scrubbed to make it smell fresh, even after using a proprietary dishwasher cleaner.
Broken/loose drawer handle in bedroom.
No adequate supplies of basic cleaning materials in the kitchen.
Poorly cleaned e.g. dust, dirt and dirty tissues under the bed
Confusion over the workings of the hob
Very loud noise from the washing machine
Lounge furniture not too comfortable.
"More than disappointed".
