We have used Charlie and his Ace Lofts team on several occasions for various carpentry work including garden deck installation, oak flooring installation and most recently a full loft conversion which added two en suite bedroons to our property. Charlie and his team are everything you would want in a contractor whether it be for a small job or some major work. We have found Charlie and the Ace Lofts team to be highly professional in everything they do which has made dealing with them a real pleasure. On our loft conversion Charlie was really helpful suggesting practical changes that made a real difference to the finished project. Any snags or changes of mind (on our part) were professionally dealt with. Our projects have always been completed on time and on budget. I woud highly reccommend Chalie and his team to anyone serious about having carpentry or buidling work completed to a high standard. Charlie's personal experience of loft conversions means that he is a real specialist and can add genuine value to any project.

Took my car in yesterday at short notice, it was diagnosed, parts ordered which came over night and fixed by 3pm that day, fantastic service, friendly staff, good price, honest. i would recommend this garage and I will use them again. thanks guys

I took my car in for a service not to long ago and was very surprised when they told me how cheap it was going to be.

I highly recommend this garage!

Queens Park Garage

152-156 Ashley Rd, Bournemouth BH1 4NF, UK – 01202 216104

I took my car in for a Hunter wheel balance today and it has cured a niggling vibration I've been trying to sort out for the last 6 months. Needless to say I'm very pleased with the results. The garage was spotless, the staff were straightforward and polite and the bill was reasonable and as quoted over the telephone. Only one word of caution, if you are planning to wait at the premises whilst any work is undertaken, make sure you let them know beforehand as they are clearly very busy (a good sign in itself). This wasn't a problem for me today but could have been another time.

Very happy with the service I get here. Friendly helpful staff prepared to do what they can to accommodate my difficult hours and always do a proper, thorough job at reasonable prices. I have no problem recommending them..

Southbourne Cliff Motors Ltd

149 Southbourne Overcliff Dr, Southbourne, Bournemouth BH6 3NP, UK – 01202 424000

This car dealer has been here for a very long time although they sold their large forecourt some years ago and flats now stand there. I bought my 62 plate VW camper here 2 years ago (summer 2014) and basically, trading as FunkyDubs, that is what they sell. Spotless ex panel vans converted to day vans, basic campers or full on camper vans. Almost all their stock is low mileage and still under manufacturer warranty. My van has been great for the last 2 years and we have been everywhere in it.

Car Body & Car Accident Repairs

PTP Body Repairs Ltd

Yeomans Industrial Park, Yeomans Way, Bournemouth BH8 0BJ, UK – 01202 512288

I went in and got a quick quote last week for a scratched and chipped rear bumper and a nasty dent in the drivers door. The price quoted was very competitive and I booked my car in for the following week. I was told by a different company that it would take 5 days and cost me an absolute fortune to sort, PTP took 1 day and did an absolutely incredible job all for less than 50% of the other companies quote. I am so impressed by their standard and quality of workmanship, the friendliness of the team and the speed from initial quote to completion of repair at such a reasonable cost, that my wife is taking her car in next week to have a few small dents and scratches repaired. If you want professional, friendly and reasonably priced repairs, you'd be foolish not to give them a try. Go on, you know it makes sense!

Fantastic workmanship at an excellent price... Highly recommended

Christchurch Bodywork Centre

221 Barrack Rd, Christchurch BH23 2AX, UK – 01202 567801

Very pleased with the service. Great and responsive staff. Got my mondeo bumper fixed which other body shops either refused to fix or were charging five times. I will highly recommend and will definitely do business with them again if needed. Thanks again.

Just picked up my Honda CRV. Damage to 2 nearside doors, the rear one required new skin. First time I have used this company. Told on dropping car off it would be one week. True to word it was ready today. Upon inspection it was perfect. The repairs were carried out to a high standard. I would definitely recommend this company if bodywork is needed. 100% satisfied. Thank you for a top class job Gary Lewis, Highcliffe

Don't usually writte reviews, unless I'm quite surprised. Either positively or negatively. In this case its a 5 star review! I needed a gear cable changed on my Cinelli bike, and despite the difficulty, it was done on the spot! Good price too. Plus a few other touches that where not required to be done! Excellent service! Attentive and professional. My apologies, but I can not remember the name of the middle-aged gentlemen that attended my bike. Both where awesome! My thanks to said gentleman that took such good care of my bike! All in all, compared to other bike shops, and I know most of them, amazing experience! Thank you! Hope they are valued and appreciated in that store. Irreplaceable! A much needed ideal in all companies!

What amazing staff. Will no longer go elsewhere. Needed two wiper blades and some bulbs had blown. The lovely guy changed them all and mad me legal for only £32. Couldn’t have been more pleased. Well done on excellent customer er service.

I cannot find fault with anything he has done and would highly recommend his services in anything car audio related. Excellent service and much appreciated!!

I cant fault the service from Steve he visited my home where I’d left my car waiting for him and fitted my stereo while I was at work , did the steering wheel controls fitted a new dashboard part to accommodate the new stereo and wired in all the input cables for all my mobile devices, got the cables routed to the part of the car I needed them in , also fitted a mic for the Bluetooth hands free and programmed the car multifunction display to say what I wanted on it. All of this was way beyond my expectations and I’m extremely pleased with it !, Absolutely recommended !!! 😀

A&G Hand Car Wash

168 Barrack Rd, Christchurch BH23 2AP, UK

I've used this a few times, but just for the outside. Always done really well. Today I had a mini-valet (£14), hence this immediate review. The inside of the car looks fantastic, actually better than when I bought it. Carpets are now spotless, and I was shocked at the instruments, speedo, etc. I've had the car over a year and hadn't realised how dull the inside must have got. The dials literally look like new, the numbers are white rather than grey! So, no more struggling with a home vacuum for me and then not being fully satisfied when I've done it. It's a mini-valet every month for me! Worth every penny. Polite, efficient workers, too.

Very good car wash. Had the Super mini valet. Really happy.

Leo from OvenKing did a brilliant job on our double oven, gas hob, and extractor fan! Our oven had not been (professionally) cleaned in 3+ years. The extractor fan needed new bulbs, new vent sheets, and was absolutely filthy. By the time Leo finished, everything was gleaming! He was professional, friendly, punctual, and did a great job. We will definitely use OvenKing again and happy to recommend them.

I contacted Flying Colours and never looked back. My instructor from Flying Colours was Amy Taylor and on the very first lesson I could tell that she was a superior instructor. Yesterday, I passed with flying colours and not only did I save money doing so, I found it fun! If you dredge your lessons then you should definitely give Flying Colours a go! Big thank you to Amy and the rest of the team.

10/10 Jonathan is really good driving instructor. He is thorough, stricter than the examiners, so he knows if you will pass or not. I passed 1st time with only 1 minor fault. I cannot thank Jonathan enough for all the help he has given me to prepare for my practical driving test. He has a good sense of humour, which makes passing the test easier, and his funny mnemonics such as POM (Prepare, observe, manoeuvre). THANK YOU

Excellent service, although they were running late due to another job they still came out at 7:20pm to fix my car as promised. Would definitely use this company again and would highly recommend

Quick and honest service just before Xmas. After a wrong diagnosis ( again) by the Rac, the Issue was a distrubutor cap and Brian ans The Guys at Autobot was quick to find the piece and fix my Car. Thanks for the quick help will use again!


1 Stony Ln, Christchurch BH23 1DL, UK – 01202 471910

Great people, Great service, could not want better. Made me feel confident and comfortable with service and MOT that I had done. Not the cheapest but up there with the best. Kept me fully updated throughout, I WILL be going back next year.

A very friendly, helpful and honeat garage which is a rare find in this sort of business. They came recommended to me and I would pass that recommendation. Lovely to speak to people who are obviously experts but do not make you feel like a novice (even though that what most of us are when it comes to cars). Don't hesitate to use them.


Beaulieu Rd, Christchurch BH23 2EA, UK – 01202 482396

Empire Electrical Services

17 Meon Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6PN, UK – 07814 024242

I now have fantastic LED lighting in my shop. Luke took my old lighting down and put up new. Looks amazing! I highly recommend this man.

First class service from initial phone call through to finished job. Luke is a true professional, who gave sound and very honest advice and did a fantastic job re-wiring our home. We have already recommended Empire Electrical to a friend and will be using their services again, when we remodel our kitchen in the summer.

Southern Electrical Services UK Ltd

17 William Rd, Bournemouth BH7 7BB, UK – 07980 226003

We called Jonathan late on a Friday afternoon to investigate a lighting failure. He came straight out, quickly diagnosed the fault and promised to come back the following Monday to carry on the repair, which involved replacing the cable between two switches. He returned, as promised and quickly and efficiently made the repair, which involved making two holes in the ceiling, replacing the cable and then making good the holes. His work was of a very high standard and the cost reasonable given the service we received. Jonathan is an excellent electrician, polite and triustworthy and we would not hesitate to use him again.

Jonathan was recommended to us by another tradesman. He is reliable - he turns up when he says he is going to. He is trustworthy and his work is of a very high standard. Jonathan has done many small jobs for us as well as a much larger project on our extension which required both internal and external wiring and lighting. It is really easy to work with him especially as he listens to what you want and he is happy to make suggestions and offer ideas to suit. Brilliant! We would highly recommend him.

Greens Electrical

83 Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth BH1 1EP, UK – 0800 007 6702

Connells Estate Agents in Christchurch

3 High St, Christchurch BH23 1AB, UK – 01202 483344

Fast, helpful, personable and professional all words I would use to describe the team at Connells Christchurch. Coming from a estate agency background in my youth I have seen my fair share of good agents but when I came to buy through Connells they set the bar high, very high. In matter of fact I ended up selling through them and taking my mortgage out with them, the service they provided me was that good I felt in safe hands letting them deal with it. I dont tend to right reviews but I feel like the guys in Christchurch Connells need to know how good they really are. Keep up the good work, Jason and Kerriex

From day one Bradley was amazing introducing all the properties that would interest me and helping me tell them apart. When we went onto buy Jon, the manager, helped us a guided us the whole way through. Great team running really well , not like a normal estate agents.

Connells Estate Agents in Southbourne

73 Southbourne Grove, Bournemouth BH6 3QU, UK – 01202 423281

I have recently decided to rent out my property with Connells in Southbourne and I couldn’t be happier with the service. Both Alex and Dan make a really good team and have only been a help through out the whole process. I am over the moon with my new tenants and will definitely be returning to these guys when my other properties become available. 5 stars for a great service.

I enquirer about an unavailable property but the letting negotiator told me about a property that had only just come up and wasn’t online yet. I can’t believe the service provided I got it view the flat and take it before anyone else ! I would recommend calling up and registering with Dan. He was able to answer any questions I had and the whole experience was stress free and fast. The whole new team in Connells southbourne are professional and eager to help. I can’t wait to recommend them to my friends !

Powis Real Estate Agents

1081-1083, Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6BQ, UK – 01202 435577

Super estate agents - wouldn't have worked with anyone else. Staff are all very helpful and made the whole process as stress-free as possible. Very efficient in answering emails and returning calls, were very reliable and we had every confidence in the staff during our sale. Amazing customer service and brilliantly efficient - highly recommended.

We've used Powis twice to sell our house and we're very pleased that we did. All the staff, especially Ray and Aimee, are so friendly and professional. I always felt confident that I could just leave it with them and they would be on top of it (It's one less thing to worry about!). In fact on both occasions our house was sold within weeks. They're fast, efficient and very reliable. Can't rate them highly enough! Well done and thank you.

George Scott Funeral Services

15 Somerset Rd, Bournemouth BH7 6JH, UK – 01202 395827

Boscombe Branch. From start to finish Neil and his team were amazing! First of all they were so gentle, very warm and extremely welcoming which was exactly what we needed after our father passing. The building was so clean I couldn’t believe it especially as we had visited another one not far from George Scott and they were not half as clean! Neil showed us around the building even into the fridge room where it was sterile and so on. Handling dads funeral we couldn’t have asked for a better funeral directors Neil and his team are amazing and handled everything so patiently. honestly if anyone needed a funeral directors I would point anybody in their direction! They give you what you need at such a hard time, they are straight forward and make sure not to confuse you by offering you products sepreatly rather they give you package options which include everything you need so you know you are paying one full price (except if you want fancy extras) we really felt like we done right by dad by leaving him in the care of George Scott and sons. If I could rate 10* I would. Brilliant.

My family has used George Scott Funeral Services on two occasions in the past three years, dealing with both the Kinson branch and the Boscombe branch. I cannot imagine a better helping hand to guide one through the complexities of arranging a funeral. Their reassuring kindness, thoughtfulness and, above all, complete professionalism made the process as pain-free as such a task could be. On both occasions the service they provided was utterly faultless and I wouldn’t have the slightest hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending them.

We needed 150' of fencing for our rear garden and some nice gates installing on our driveway. Got a few quotes and decided on BH Garden Solutions. How pleased I am that I did ... I am a perfectionist however the level of detail that Matt and Chris employed when doing both my jobs was literally incredible. And what nice guys also - nothing too much trouble. Will definitely use again and recommend to my entire family and friends. We are well chuffed with the work they have done. Well done boys.

Matt Chris Kevin and John all of whom I dealt with throughout this job were professional and pleasant. I am delighted with the end result. My garden is just as I imagined it. Nothing was too much trouble and I did change some things as we went along. They consulted me all the time. The job was completed in the estimated time.. I would have no hesitation in recommending them and will have them back to do the front garden next year.

Michael is a brilliant hairdresser and a really lovely guy. He was suggested by a friend and she was not wrong. Having tried a few places in Bournemouth I have finally found the best and will not be changing any time soon. Highly recommended. Karen

Great place. Great banter. Excellent value for money.

I have had my haircut at Marks for over ten years. He takes a real interest in what style I want and this has changed over the years as I have grown older. He is always attentive and I have never been disappointed. I would recommend him to anybody. Guys usually stick to one hairdresser and at Marks you will not find fault. Great place great atmosphere Thx

His and Kids Hair Shops

5 Castle St, Christchurch BH23 1DP, UK – 01202 477550

Good haircuts and nice atmosphere for kids however there is often a wait as they mostly only have one hairdresser.

For our second visit, we went on Thursday afternoon. The results from our first time were a little rough, as it is rather difficult to cut the hair of a two year-old if they're always moving about. This time however, he kept his head remarkably still while watching Thomas the Tank engine on one of the two televisions they have in front of the seats, and the hairdresser had time to give him a really good cut.

You get what you pay for. I only go for a wash and blow dry and have always been happy with the results. £11 is the price for one hair treatment so you will pay more if you want a cut and/ or colouring. There is also an extra charge for products such as hair spray. I find the hairdressers are very friendly. I like not needing an appointment; just turn up and wait.

Great place. All staff are friendly and fully qualified. Great prices. I have always been happy with my results.

This is the fourth time we have employed Tony Broughton to give the best professional finish to the decorations after renovation work has been carried out in various rooms. We like to do some of the careful preparation work but it is a 'must' to have Tony come in last and create the expert professional finish in each room. Just gutted the Lounge, removed chimney, rewired etc and it now is decorated to a superb standard. Mr Richard Brown F.R.I.C.S., Bournemouth

Painting of hallway and three bedrooms. This was the third time we have used Tony for decorating work in our house, and this was the biggest job yet. Over a two week period Tony painted three bedrooms and our hallway - which included a large amount of woodwork and several new doors. The quality of the work completed is second to none. Tony takes real pride in doing the best possible job and his attention to detail is what sets him apart from other decorators. It really shows in the quality of the finish. We look forward to Tony's return in November to wallpaper and paint our lounge. Thanks again for another top quality job! Mr Steven Pratt 24 Carey Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH9 2XB

ianH photography - Dorset wedding photographer

1 Glenferness Ave, Bournemouth BH4 9NB, UK – 07575 567408

We would like to say a big thank you to Ian for the fantastic service he provided for our beach wedding. From the outset, the service Ian provided was impeccable. He arranged a phone conversation when we were first making enquiries, that not only provided an insight into Ian and the service he provided, but he also gave us invaluable advice and really put our minds at ease; we knew he was the photographer for us. On the day, Ian was prompt and seamlessly took photographs, fading into the background during manic bridal preparations, the nerves just before the wedding, ceremony, beach photos and the reception. The photos he took were fantastic, relaxed but fun, and he really captured the theme and atmosphere of the day. He took pictures of all our special moments so we can look at these memories in years to come. After the wedding, the impeccable service continued. He sent us the link to our wedding photos within a month of the wedding and sent us the photos by USB so we would have hard copies. Lucy James and Ronald James We cannot fault Ian's service and skills and would highly recommend his services.

From the very first meeting until we received the photos (and after)...Ian has been absolutely brilliant. He kept us up to date all through the process and on the day made sure we got all the photos we needed whilst having a fantastically fun time. Ian made sure everyone was relaxed and natural which is just want we wanted. We have beautiful photos that have captured every emotion. Ian went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. We can now reflect back on that day any time we want, all thanks to Ian!

Man and Van Move Bournemouth

17 York Pl, Bournemouth BH7 6JN, UK – 07872 467911

These guys are an absolute credit to their profession and I can't speak highly of them. From the moment of deciding to go with them the communication was great, especially as my move date changed. They always got back to me promptly and took any hassle of moving. The move team themselves were superb, hard working, friendly and did an absolutely superb job. Nothing broken or so much as chipped. I would recommend these to anyone moving house. Great company, great job and great people. Thanks Man and Van Move Bournemouth.

Moving house following a bereavement. Mark and Jamie were extremely professional, friendly and kind. They provided an excellent service which I would highly recommend. They were efficient and trustworthy, completing the job in a timely manner and at a competitive price. They made a difficult day much easier to cope with. I am very grateful for their care.

Radio Cabs (Christchurch Branch & Head Office)

Gave several hours notice to book a taxi at a specific time. When it did not arrive 10 minutes after specified time I used their app to learn the taxi was 11 minutes away. I called the head office to complain and was advised they would send another taxi immediately. Ten minutes later I used their app to learn this taxi was still 9 minutes away. It never did arrive and I lost my restaurant reservation.

Got a pre-booked Taxi back last night (new years day AM) with my little 4 year old. Taxi on time, same price as quoted. Excellent, professional, reliable service. Very pleasant driver. Clean warm car. Will always use this firm now.Thank you very much. Best wishes & Happy new year!

First time renting a property. My first contact was a gentleman called Zach Tebbutt who answered all my questions. He guided me through to process as i found it quite daunting. All settled in now. Great agent and agency. Highly recommended would refer my friends and family to this establishment.

We have been using Bournecoast's tenant finding service for several years now and they have consistently found us excellent tenants. When one of our flats becomes empty the staff always find new tenants pretty quickly and yet make a real effort with thoroughly vetting them before introducing us. We will continue to use Bournecoast's service for as long as they continue to find us great tenants!

Got to say, very impressed with the assistance I have received from the staff members in the Boscombe outlet of Richer Sounds with a special thank you to Paul. His advise and knowledge has been extremely appreciated for me to achieve exactly what I was looking for. It's such a shame customer service like this is standard throughout all service providers. Certainly recommend a visit! Thank you Paul and the rest of the team!

Magnolia House Veterinary Clinic

1a Stony Ln, Christchurch BH23 7LQ, UK – 01202 499622

Go out of their way to help. Informative, professional and caring. We have found their charges reasonable too. I always look for independents in anything because i think you get better service and if people own their business they care more. Magnolia House is one proof of this point.

Kind and caring. You can see that they love their little and big patients. They always welcome them with a rub or a pat and know what they need. You can leave your pet overnight after their operation without having to worry of they will be okey, as they will be in good hands. The vet's live above the clinic, so they are able to come down to their patients any time to check on them. My little one always run away from vets, but he is always calm and happy at Magnolia's House.
