    Historical Traveler Reviews The Cremona Hotel Bournemouth

    Loved the place


    The city is great and i never believe that in a fine city exist such a nice hotel with a excellent service, is not about the many things that you are waiting when you pay, but actually the friendly treatment, i just feel like home, everything in order and clean, evey angle of my room was clean, all the small details where there, Electrical adaptors, Wireless Internet, hot water, tea service, everything worked fine, that the coolest thing, actually when you get to a place there is allways something that is not working , but here was different.

    Next time i be here whitout even thinking about it, the price was very good for someone that comes from italy, i just wanna give Hari and Rita a big Star for the hotel and offcourse a lot of positive energy to keept up the good job.

    Very friendly first class Bed and Breakfast


    This was a lovely Bed and Breakfast to stay in. We had a very warm welcome and our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and we look forward to the next time we visit Cremona!

    Comfortable - welcoming & very friendly


    Top weekend, Great town and superb hotel. This is the Third time i've stayed in the lovely Cremona hotel. Rita & Harry have always made me & my friends feel very warm & welcome. If you need anything, their always there to help either it being a taxi, directions, or a little bit more time in bed to get over your hangover. (and what some hangovers I've had).

    Bournemouth has some great places to go to, in the day or if your like me, plenty in the evenings. Loads of Pubs and clubs. If you like a good bit of gambling you could try the casino on west over road or Yelverton Road next to another top night spot and very enjoyable gents club & ladies welcome

    See you soon Rita and Harry


    What a B and B should be


    Don't be put off by first impressions of the street - with several other less well cared for establishments setting the tone. The cremona is in a league of its own.

    The beach is at the end of the road, a quiet residential street with a few other B and Bs and slightly larger hotels. The hotel itself is immaculate - looked after by the owners who always had time to help, whether arranging a taxi or a cup of tea in the front garden.

    A hotel for people who hate hotels (I stay in plenty of supposedly 5 star places around the world) this is better - a real home from home. Well done Rita and harry! Need to find an excuse to return to Bournemouth soon!

    Excellent service


    The Cremona Hotel is a lovely place to stay in Bournemouth. The couple that own and run the hotel were extremely friendly, pleasant and very welcoming. The hotel is situated quite close to the beach (about 10-15 min walk down the road) and close to the town centre (about 5 min walk away).

    The continental breakfast was outstanding.

    Would stay there again. Completely enjoyed staying at this hotel



    This was the second time we stayed at the Cremona hotel and we came home with amazing memories again.

    The hotel is owned by a couple who are the most amazing hosts you could wish for and are always willing to help you with anything you need.

    The first thing you'll notice about the hotel is the gorgeous flowers upfront. The rooms are lovely and cosy and what's best of all, absolutely spotless. There's a coffee/tea making facility in each room, a colour TV, a bathroom, hairdryer etc. Having only a few rooms, the hotel is quiet and piecefull. There's a guest lounge with sofas, TV and board games where the guests may socialize. Breakfast is served in a breakfast room overlooking the garden. There's a choice of three breakfasts: full English, vegetarian (omlet or scrambled eggs, tomatos, hash brown, moshrooms...) and continental (fruit salad, croissant, toast...). You may also choose from a variety of cornflakes, marmelades, there's tea, coffee, butter, juice, nutella...So you needn't worry about ending up hungry.

    The location is good for both heading to the beach as well as shopping in the centre, catching a bus or just enjoying the parks. Megabuses stop just a 5-minute walk away. The owners also have beach towels for you to borrow which is going to make your suitcases a bit lighter.

    I would recommend this hotel for couples looking for a getaway, families on vacation etc.

    I was about 2000 km away from home but still felt at home at Cremona and I'm sure I'll go back again.

    Fabulous B & B


    The Cremona Hotel is a fabulous Bed & Breakfast. The owners were so helpful and the place is spotless. The breakfasts were st class. We really enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending the Cremona to anyone visiting Bournemouth (which was beautiful too). We look forward to returning there sometime.

    Great rooms and service


    Rita and Hari have tastefully refurbished the hotel to a high standard.

    They carry on the high standrds in personal service and lovely breakfasts.

    The only possible slight negative is the lack of private parking.

    Wireless internet acces is freely available. If I have to stay in the Dorset area I always try to book in at the Cremona!

    Loved the breakfasts


    We have just returned from the Cremona hotel and have nothing but the highest praise. The hotel was spotless and the owners Rita and Hari were fabulous, nothing was to much trouble, they were excellent and always had time for you and so helpful. It was my wifes birthday whilst we were there and when we came back to our room there was a card and bunch of flowers waiting for her from the owners, what a thoughtful thing to do. Cannot wait until next year to go back again.

    Excellent service


    I stayed here for three nights and the owners really made everything to make my stay as pleasant as possible. The full English breakfast was the best one I've ever had. It's a small and well kept hotel. The owners have made it their own little hidaway. It's situated in a quite street, just a few minutes walk from the town centre of Bournemouth, perfect! They answer email instantly. A hotel well worth the money!

    10am and we are off to Durham to see my dearest sister. It's a beautiful day to drive the 300 odd miles. I couldn't believe how many different sets are roadworks there are..with 40 & 50 mph limits its slowing us down! We saw two red kites over Oxford, and just after Doncaster there were six windmills. In France you see them in blocks of ten or more. Why is everything in the service stations so much more expensive? In the Road chef, at Tibshelf North, we had ...

    I just totted up the total distance we pedaled between Rome and Canterbury - it comes to 1,892Km (or 1,182 miles).

    The ride from Canterbury to where Ian's car was parked near Gatwick was a further 137Km, split by the overnight stop at Tunbridge Wells.

    In fact, we have already been on the Balmoral once before, back in 2003, only she was called the Norwegian Crown then and was one of NCL's fleet. The Balmoral was refitted in 2008 and we have to admit we don't recognise anything from her Norwegian Crown days.

    At 15.45 hours the Balmoral gave a blast of her foghorn and slowly moved away from the dock. We had started our voyage in the wake of the ...
