Lovely location, beautiful gardens, friendly staff, delicious breakfast.
Room 1 was clean and decorated to a high standard. The let down was that the 'hot water in bathroom was lukewarm at best, combined with the cold floor tiles and hair in the bath, made the bathroom a letdown. The mattress was a little lumpy but not completely uncomfortable. Staff were attentive and friendly without being overbearing. The breakfast was exceptional and the chef a joy. The breakfast area was very comfortable with great view of the garden and good choice of classical music to ease one into the day. Literally 5 min walk to coastal cliffs. Replace the mattress, put a rug in the bathroom and provide hot water that is actually hot and this would be my first choice for return visits to Bournemouth.
The Yenton was exactly what I was after.
All I was after was a bed for a couple of nights and to be honest the room surprised me. For a single room it was very spacious and included everything I need. Very impressive.
Very clean and nice room.
Good parking. Nice stroll to seafront.
Nice room spotlessly clean.
minor repairs needed i.e cracked tiles in bathroom broken window handle. Very quiet in fact so quiet i thought hotel was empty when actually it was full. No lift to 2nd floor but gent very kindly carried up my suitcase. Evening meals not provided but told there were plenty of restaurants within 5 mins. Breakfast excellent cooked fresh as required. Very good service friendly but not intrusive. Quite a long walk down to the seafront but that was the point of the trip as a stress buster.
We had a fantastic stay.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was well decorated and very clean. We will definitely return.
Great location, lovely stay.
The website stated there were parties on various other dates but not the one I had booked but when I arrived there was a 40th birthday party at the venue.
The room was small which given the low price wasn't an issue, however the quality of the room was extremely poor. Room 201. The bathroom is very small with low ceiling height and the shower water pressure was very poor on the top floor of the building meaning washing hair wasn't an option really, the walls were very thin so you could hear noise from the dj and the party guests two floors down the stairs and other hotel guests going to their rooms and people leaving the hotel. The worst part was the fact that when I opened the curtains the lining of them was covered in black spot mould stains and the sink unit veneer was all falling off. This room needs a lot of TLC as it looks nothing like the pictures on the website. It was cheap and the bed was ok but I wouldn't stay again.
Excellent food, but some rooms badly need updating
I've stayed twice with Yenton now, and returned here because of excellent quality breakfast and lovely customer service.
Both times rooms had no shower, but this was openly stated upon booking. Location is very convenient for seaside walks and only 10-15 mins walk from food places or business centre. However, second time I came back to Yenton I was disappointed with room quality. Not only wallpaper was coming off the walls in places, ceiling was stained from what looked like a leak, wonky lamp shade, but carpet didn't look clean enough to take my shoes off.. Breakfast was lovely as usual, however this time Yenton was short of staff for a morning sign out. Generally good value for money, however some room state badly needs attention to make the stay more enjoyable and encourage visitors to come back.
I had a lovely stay staff were very helpful 10 minute walk to town centre as well as beach and train station couldnt of asked for a better place to stay they even made a point telling me again that there was a party saturday night and if they could do anything to make my stay that night better they would thank you to all the staff at the yenton il definitely be staying there when I go back early next year
A great find!
I was made to feel very welcome in my visit to the hotel.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I was on a tight schedule so didn't eat (even breakfast), however the food areas all looked very well presented. Very comfortable room and easy to access wifi. The room was clean and had a nice view out to the garden. The bathroom was complete with higher end products. A shower would have been a bonus. Would/will stay again!
