Alum Chine is our favourite of all the beautiful Bournemouth Beaches, we love the area which is easily accessible for all Bournemouth has to offer, also providing easy access to Westbourne, another favourite for restaurants and it's individual shops.. We fell in love with the apartments which were built on the site of the original Studland Dene Hotel. We have a large family and the apartments provide the perfect place to get together and enjoy the beautiful Dorset coastline for holidays and short breaks.
We can cater for larger families by booking apartments 18 A & B together (The Knoll Suite).
The suite comprises of two beautifully appointed luxury self-catering apartments, both of which are self contained and are connected by a secure hallway allowing the apartments to be booked individually or together.
The studio we rented mid September needed a bit of TLC after what must have been a busy summer but the concierge and the owner were extremely proactive and helpful in making sure our stay went smoothly. It was very nice to be a stone's throw away from the beach even if the streets get busy early morning with restaurant deliveries and refuse collection. A perfect incentive to enjoy that sunrise swim !
So well presented, much more than we expected. We really enjoyed our stay and cant wait to stay again. Lovely quiet location. Near to many attractions and good places to eat and shop.
Really helpful concierge.
Fantastic & quick communication by owners. Many thanks it was perfect!
Lovely apartment very modern and very close to the beach. We stayed for 6 days and had beautiful weather for 4 of the day's meaning we could use the very large patio. The patio is shared with the studio next door but it did not bother us as it was so large. Very well equipped and have to say John the concierge was lovely and very helpful gold star for him. Lovely restaurant on the top floor excellent food, but is rather expensive but there are a number of places to eat within walking distance and the bus to the town does stop right outside the door.
In fact Bournemouth Pier is only 20 minutes walk along the beach.
Enjoyed the terrace outside. The apartment is small but has everything you need to be comfortable and is well furnished. Walking distance to Alum Chine beach and terrace has glimpses of the sea towards Bournemouth Pier.
Smell from rubbish area was unpleasant at times and should be addressed. It will only get worse with the councils crazy decision to move to 3 weekly collections. I spoke to concierge about this. He was glad of the feedback, but is aware of the problem. Felt the damage deposit which had to be paid with final payment was a bit high. It could have been left and refunded by concierge I felt. It has incurred us quite a lot of bank charges as we are not from UK. I have yet to be informed that this has been refunded. Hopefully it will be within the promised 2 weeks.
Overall I would recommend for a couple who are planning to be out and about most of the time as we were.
Stunning apartment in a great location. Spotlessly clean and all mod cons. We had great weather so were able to make full use of the fantastic terrace. The beach is a matter of minutes away and is beautiful and makes it a really pleasant walk when walking into Bournemouth. Would definitely stay again!
For a birds’ eye view of the striking coastline and surrounding countryside take a flight on the Bournemouth Balloon situated in the central gardens or keep your feet firmly on the ground by shopping among the boutiques. Bournemouth Oceanarium is a must see attraction. The PierZip is the world’s FIRST pier to shore zip wire experience in the world located at the very end of the Bournemouth Pier and a great activity for those seeking adventure.
