My mother is staying in this home at the moment, and has been for the past year. We searched around most of the homes in the Bournemouth area, but found this one to be the best all round. Lovely rooms, nice large comfortable lounge area, lots of space. And the staff are all really nice. I speak with them all regularly, and I'm happy as is my mother, that she's in the best home for her. It's like being at home, but a lot safer..
