The apartment we visited was beautiful, we used it to shoot a scene for a film, and it had everything we wanted! More importantly, jim was an excellent host, gave us very clear and helpful instructions on how to use everything, and had brilliant communication in the run up to it. I would definitely recommend Burlington Mansions!! Thanks Jim
My wife and her close family stayed in Jim's apartment the night before our wedding , and I have to say she absolutely loved it !!
Jim's communication was excellent before the stay .
I would highly recommend staying here it's amazing !!!!!!
The host was extremely helpful and friendly. We all loved the flat and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.
this is the second time I stayed at Burlington mansions this year and I loved it! again, Jim was very helpful from
booking to leaving and the place took my breath away even though if already seen it once before! thank you again and I look forward to visiting again soon!
This is a very special place to stay, that really lives up to the photographs. A beautiful property, I only wish we had stayed longer there. We loved the main entranceway with the billiard table, and the media room. The kitchen is great as well. This flat has all the luxury extras that you dream about - electric armchairs, wine cooler etc.
Great location, a few minutes from the beach. Check in and out were very easy, all of the instructions around the house were very simple and helpful, good lists of taxis and restaurants. Good hosting set-up with minimum hassle.
I would love to stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone.
Bournemouth, and nearby Boscombe where the apartment is, are great places for a summer break. Gorgeous beaches, charming cafes and great restaurants. The nightlife in Bournemouth and Poole did not disappoint either. The apartment was a fantastic base, which does justice to the impressive photos on the airbnb website. When the weather kept us indoors, the indoor luxury cinema ticked all the important boxes. The kitchen is very well equipped and the entire apartment was clean and comfortable. Mandy, the concierge, was helpful as was our host Jim, with enquiries before we arrived. I would recommend this as a great luxury pad for a short break.
Our stay in Jim's flat was GREAT!! He is a really nice guy, he accommodated our request of an early check in so that we could leave our bags and make the most of the day at the beach. The flat is just one of a kind. What you see is exactly what you get. Plenty of space, a big modern kitchen and a home theatre downstairs with fully reclining sofas. Literally 5 minutes walk away from the beach. It was exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend!! Thanks Jim!
Originally it's a good house and nice place to joy a two day vacation, the facilities and layout of house are great even the spacious cinema room.
But the host is so annoying I ever met, asking me too many questions about this and that, it's peer-to-peer business not I am begging you to let me IN! And it charges! You rent the house and please don't set so many rules for your tenant. Please if you see your lovely house as something so important cannot be touched, don't rent it at all!
BTW I am already so nice to wish the dishes and following your one A4-size -page instruction, only left some wished dashes on the table because the taxi was waiting outside.
Most angrily you send me a message said "you are so kind to don't mention such thing in my review." Come on, I pay the £50 cleaning fee and you aren't even willing to put some dishes, ridiculously!
Response from Jim:
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and I hope that you find other nice places on airbnb.
This place is absolutely stunning! We couldn't believe our eyes when we walked in and saw the HUGE chandelier and as we made our way through the flat, things just got better and better! The hidden en suite bathroom was cool as was the hot tub! There is an amazing view of the beach from the balcony and the cinema room was the pièce de resistance for us! Jim was incredibly helpful from the moment I emailed him to ask about availability to the final day when we checked out. The only downside was having to leave after a weekend! Wish we could have stayed for a week to really appreciate the place and the beach (which is 5 min walk away). Thank you so much for letting us stay at your place, we enjoyed every second of it and will be recommending it to everyone! Roshni & family
A truly breathtaking property - ideally located just a stone's throw away from Boscombe Pier and it's beautiful beach, with local shops and restaurants all in walking distance. That's if you want to leave the apartment, of course! Beautiful, grand and with epic views from its sun-trap terrace, 10 Burlington Mansions is dripping in style, history and charm. Myself and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's well-equipped with everything to make guests feel comfortable and welcome. The owner Jim and everyone we dealt with were - and continue to be - helpful and courteous, going above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our visit.
Can't recommend or praise enough!
I have stayed at this amazing flat that was part of the old ballroom and bar of the Burlington Hotel and converted about 6 years ago. The main building has loads of character with spiral staircases, copper domes, revolving door and arches. The flat has also managed to combine historical features like ornate plaster panels, gold painted Corinthian pillar tops, a massive crystal chandelier and over 4 meter high ceiling in the hall with all mod cons by way of clever design that seems to have a never ending range of different rooms accessed by different staircases some obvious and some not! The 2 main bedrooms are downstairs which is unusual but does give the main living area upstairs some great sea views. Not really suitable for those with mobility problems but a fascinating example of how history can be captured and provide luxury accommodation.
The media room was a hit but I loved the fact that it is only a couple of hundred meters walk to the beach with miles of beautiful walks in each direction and so close to the shops in Boscombe and Bournemouth! The terrace is great for sunbathing as well as pre dinner drinks to watch the sun sets :-)
I have had the pleasure of being a guest of the Hurmans many times, including several stays at this gorgeous newly renovated luxury apartment at Burlington Mansions. The Hurmans are excellent hosts - polite, caring and attentive to detail. The apartment is fully contained, extremely spacious, private and quiet. The renovation has successfully renewed key features of this building to make it representative of a graceful period. There are fantastic fresh air walks and longer scenic walks as well as eating venue options to satisfy the resultant hunger pangs. I unequivocally recommend the hosts and the venue for an executive stay, a weekend getaway or a family holiday.
