“Fantastic Apartment, Lovely Location” This apartment was really fantastic, lovely and luxurious inside with everything you could want from a holiday. We were left a lovely welcome hamper which was much appreciated. On arrival the whole place was spotlessly clean and with great modern decor. Beds were very comfortable, TV s in all three bedrooms , which my children loved !
Great location as well. Would definetely recommend a stay here and we will be booking again.
“Lovely clean spacious apartment” The property is centrally located to enable easy access to town and beach amenities.The apartment was nice and spacious- good size bedrooms with comfortable double bed- lots of wardrobe and drawer space.all rooms were very clean- bathroom and shower room good size and powerful shower- nice fluffy towels- kitchen larger than expected-everything in there you need-lounge average size but big enough for us all- A great place to stay for family or friends-Although only one car parking space there is a very cheap car park across the road - can't really think of any fault with the property- only minor disappointment was not being able to check in till 4pm and having to check out at 10am- I would go back again and definitely recommend this place to friends -
“Farthing experience.” Thanks Stephen for a lovely stay, it was a pleasure to meet you. The apartment had everything we needed and was in an ideal position - five minutes to either the beach or shops. Loved Bournemouth and Farthings and WE WILL BE BACK. Thanks once again for everything. Anne Lloyd, Alan Lloyd and Stephen Lloyd. We would definitely recommend Farthings if you are looking for an apartment in Bournemouth.
“Great value and lovely place” Found this place fantastic value. Great location, very close to centre. We were able to check in earlier as well which was very helpful. Apartment was very clean and provided everything we needed. Thank you for a great stay would definetly come back.
“A stunning apartment in a beautiful location” We were lucky enough to see in the New year at this modern, comfortable apartment. Having never been to Bournemouth or Boscombe before, we were utterly amazed at the stunning location. Even in December we spent our days on the gorgeous beach flying kites or taking the train along the coast. The photos of the apartment don't do it justice- it's much bigger in real life. From the breath-taking victorian entrance hall to the unique, stylish apartment to the beautiful coastline- I would highly recommend a stay and we will be back soon.
“Great town centre apartment” The apartment is right in the heart of Bournemouth but as its at the rear of the building it's surprisingly quite and peaceful., there was no noise at night and we slept really well in the comfy large bed. It has a balcony that over looks the central gardens. It has all the facilities you need for your holiday including sky tv, there's also a freeview tv in the bedroom. The owner was extremely helpful including picking us up from the rail station and showing us round and explaining everything. The seafront and pier are only 5 minutes walk. If you don't have a car the local buses go from just round the corner (we got a £15 7 day network pass for the yellow buses from their office) If you want to stay close to all the shops, pubs and eateries just book this apartment!
“Don't hesitate to book!” We agree with all the other positive reviews for this flat. The owner is an absolute delight to deal with and the property is without doubt the nicest, most well-equipped self catering flat in which we have stayed. It was spacious and warm and very easy to keep clean and tidy.
It really is well equipped and workbooks for all appliances were in a file in the kitchen - even for the kettle and toaster!
We are an older couple but had we been younger with small children there would have been no problems, the flat is very child-friendly and there are many DVDs, games and books to keep the little 'uns occupied on rainy days.
The neighbours were very quiet in the time we were there and the lady superintendent was very helpful and friendly
We found it was very easy to get to town by bus or walking and the few times we had to get a taxi part way (husband's dodgy hip!) the cost was around £6.00.
The only negative we would mention would be the table top ironing board. We would have preferred a full sized one, but even so, we've never stayed in a holiday flat where the only negative is not really worth mentioning.
If we win the lottery - we're putting in an offer!!! Thank you SO much.
Please note, the review was written before return of breakages deposit which is why N/A is showing on the questionnaire. We wanted to put our positive thoughts on paper asap.
“Perfect apartment, ideal location on the beach” Short walk to beach and sandbanks ferry to Brownsea Island and Studland. No car required. Beautiful sunrise on lovely blue flag sandy beach and amazing sunset over the harbour in the evening. Close to ferries to Guernsey, Jersey and France from Poole. Great days out at Corfe Castle, Swanage, Lulworth Cove, Kimmeridge and Bournemouth. Beautifully appointed apartment with ensuite bathroom and all very modern, light and bright. Nice sunny balcony with views. Great parks nearby, Poole Park, Alum Chine, Sandbanks & Compton Acres. Will definitely book again.
“Ticked all the boxes!” Group of 4 friends stayed at the apartment (16-18-NOV-2012)
The original check-in/check-out times were not to our liking(16:00/10:00), but the lady looking after the place (amanda) was very flexible with us as no one was staying at the apartment,either side of us. We met her at 15:00 on the friday (paid the deposit) & left at 14:30 on the sunday. I am someone who always asks for a later check-out as after a late night (got home after a night out in bournemouth at 03:00),the thought of having to leave by 10:00 would not be ideal & change the enjoyment of the whole weekend!
The apartment was nice & warm & the heating was very simple to control via the room thermostat.
We had a couple of take-aways which worked out really well. There were take-away menus in the info book,which is always a big help when away from home. There were plenty of plates/glasses/cutley etc, also having a fridge/dishwasher always comes in handy.
Two minor things i mentioned to amanda were there was no hand soap & only a half roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, on our arrival. We did find 2 toilet rolls in the cupboard by the front door,but amanda did apologise for this oversight!
Our £100 deposit was returned with no problems as we left the apartment as we found it although i did break a wine glass when unloading the dishwasher,which i informed amanda about but her attitude regarding this was the same as throughtout our stay,excellent!
Finally,would i stay here again if i was visiting Bournemouth?....YES
“Trouble free, excellent holiday in modern apartment overlooking” From the outset everything was simple. The paperwork could not have been easier. We had a warm welcome on arrival and everything that was promised was delivered. The apartment was modern, clean and had all the amenities one could want. Extra storage facilities in our own shed was an added benefit. Car parking could not have been easier. We would certainly recommend this apartment to others.
“Fantastic - home from home - great for groups” We stayed here with a group of friends over the bank holiday - the booking process was very simple and Susan was really helpful and provided great information.
House is lovely - spacious, plenty of beds and modern furnishings.
We had an issue with the hot water which we couldnt work out how to turn on - Susans daughter came immediately round to assit which was appreciated
Would fully recommend this property and we are hoping to return soon
“Great house, great location, highly recommended” A large group of ladies stayed here for a hen weekend - the house was lovely, great facilities, very clean and all that you would need including a lovely terrace to drink your champagne on in the afternoon sunshine, what more could you ask?!. The lovely sitting room and dining room were adequate space for us all as were the bedrooms - the set up being one long room with 7 beds, a single, a double and 2 doubles which also had a single bed - great for either a single sex group or maybe 3 families. The mattresses all looked and felt new! We all said we would return again whether with friends or family. Well situated for town (£7 in a taxi) and a lovely 30 minutes walk to Branksome beach which was delightful.
“Great New Year stay at this wonderful apartment!” This apartment has it all - it is ideally located in a fabulous Victorian building a mere five minutes walk from the seafront and Boscombe Pier. The flat has an excellent kitchen equipped with all the utensils one could need. The lounge area is comfortable and spacious, and the TV comes equipped with cable and a large selection of DVDs for days when the weather doesn't co-operate. The flat was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. The surrounding area has a large selection of cafes and restaurants, and there are shops within walking distance. Would highly recommend, and will stay again!
“Extremely comfortable and well equipped” Central location, close to seafront and town. The apartment is spacious, clean, and equipped and furnished to a very high standard with lots of thoughtful extras like wi-fi, DVDs, books, games. We enjoyed our stay and will be back.
“Apartment was perfect, modern, light and well equipped.” The apartment was spacious, well furnished and clean, just perfect for our needs.
It was exceptionally well equipped with lots of DVD’s, games for the children and even beach equipment.
Property was well located as only a short distance from Boscombe pier and beach. Also was very close to the high street which had supermarkets and shops.
Booking was easy and all communication was prompt.
Hope to stay again.
