About this location
The Dorset region
Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside, dramatic scenery, charming market towns, character villages and miles of some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK.
Bournemouth lies to the east of the county and offers seven miles of blue flag beaches. It is near the market town of Christchurch with its 11th century Priory Church, ruined castle and Saxon mill, and the stunning medieval New Forest.
The area caters for diverse interests – the popular buzzing beach resort in Bournemouth with its vibrant nightlife; the gentler pursuits of walking, wildlife and bird-watching in the nature reserves and national parks, and along the 20 miles of Bournemouth Coast footpath; and active pursuits such as cycling, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea kayaking. Popular also for touring, Southampton, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance.
Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
Boscombe is situated on the coast with it's own pier, beautiful gardens and flourishing local tourism industry. The main shopping area is based around a pedestrian precinct, including part of Sea Road, with shops, cafes and restaurants surrounding this open area. Towards the west more shops lead to the beautifully restored Victoria Boscombe Chine Gardens, and eastwards the shopping area leads towards Pokesdown, with the famous 'antiques alley' featuring antiques and bric a brac. Shops also flourish in adjoining roads, including Ashley Road and Palmerston Road leading towards Springbourne.
Boscombe is well served by over 10 local bus services, including a service between the Bus Station and the sea front during peak holiday times. The main bus station is just behind the Sovereign Centre, a short walk through to the main shops.
Boscombe pier leads to the popular family beaches perfect for early morning swimming, surf lessons, and body boarding. The recently refurbished Boscombe Gardens features a mini golf course and sports complex; children's play area and café. Boscombe is home to Europe's first artificial surf reef, which launched in November 2009.
One of the main highlights of staying in Boscombe it it's accessibility to both the beaches and town centre in Bournemouth, and the nearby peaceful town of Southbourne. Set in one of the most beautiful parts of southern England, Bournemouth and Poole are justly famous for their seven miles of golden sandy beaches, awarded Blue Flag status meaning they are internationally recognised to be of the highest standard, but there is so much more to the area than the seashore.

"Very much in need of some TLC"
When we arrived at the apartment on Saturday afternoon we found that the lift wasn't working. As a result my wife had to make several journeys up four flights of stairs to carry our luggage – I was unable to help due to mobility problems.
I rang the letting agent, Bournecoast, but they said they would be unable to help until the following Monday. I took it on myself to find the emergency number of the lift company and the lift was fixed first thing the following day, Sunday. If I could do this why couldn't Bournecoast?
Bournecoast rang me on Monday morning to confirm that the lift was working and I took the opportunity to advise them of the following problems with the apartment:
A total of five light bulbs were not working and the lamp in the lounge didn't work due to a defective extension lead. Only one bathroom radiator was working. If the toilet flush was pressed to hard then the mechanism came apart. There was only one toilet roll between two bathrooms. One of the toilets had been full of wet paper when we arrived. No bath mats were provided so we had to use hand towels for this purpose.
Bournecoast told me they would get back to me but no-one did.
In addition, the sofa should have been replaced some considerable time ago. My wife commented that although each bathroom had a mirror, there was none near a power socket where a hair dryer could be plugged in. Bearing in mind the cost of the apartment I feel that this does not offer value for money. These sorts of issues should be checked and remedied.
Thank you for your review, I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your accommodation in Bournemouth.
I have asked the Customer Service team to feedback to me what happened and I understand that you spoke to Michelle on the Saturday afternoon who advised you that she would do her best to get someone out to repair the lift over the weekend. We don't have control over the lifts in the block as there is a Management Company who manage the site and Michelle asked if there was a maintenance number on the lift to help us assist you so we could arrange for them to be called out to repair it as soon as possible. When you advised Michelle there was not a number she tried to contact the managing agents and the concierge but unfortunately they were not available at that time. Michelle contacted you again on the Saturday to say that she had been trying to contact them but to no avail and that she would ring first thing Monday morning. Due to our messages left with the concierge and the managing agents they called us first thing to say the lift was now working. Michelle straight away contacted you and you reported that the lift was fixed over the weekend and that you had found a number for the lift maintenance company after speaking to her. Thank you for contacting the lift company, Michelle would have been more than happy to do this for you when she originally asked.
I believe the other maintenance issues have been reported as well and I am very sorry they did not get resolved during your stay. Without prejudice, we would like to offer you a goodwill gesture to apologise for the fact that you were disappointed during your stay. We have sent you an email with the details, please can you confirm by return email that you are happy with our proposal and we will process the proposed goodwill gesture back to the card you paid for the holiday with.
Again, please accept our apologies.
