Stayed here last weekend 2 nights. Good base close to the beach and to explore surrounding area. Faith and Martin are excellent hosts, nice to have the personal touch. Only bug bear is breakfast is served only 8-9am, bit too early for us, would expect at least until 10am or to give the option of a room only rate so... More

Dear Dafttaylor Thank you for taking the time to write us a Tripadvisor review. We are sorry that our breakfast time was too early for you on one of the days you stayed with us. We are always willing to offer a later breakfast to guests who want to have lay in, we can't always offer a full cooked breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I stayed over the bank holiday weekend and really enjoyed our stay. As other reviews have mentioned Faith and Martin are great hosts and very friendly. The breakfast was yum - really liked the bacon, sausages and the pancakes. We really enjoyed staying in Southbourne - so close to the beach, some nice local restaurants and if... More

Can honestly not find a negative word to say about Faith & Martin's hospitality. Comfy room, spotless bathroom, peaceful location but extremely convenient for coastal walks & the air show which was the reason for our visit. Breakfasts were scrummy - non greasy, local produce & good choice of hot & cold. All in all, super place, super hosts.

Beach Lodge Guest House is a fabulous place to stay. Martin and Faith are lovely, kind hosts and nothing is too much trouble. A welcome cup of tea and home made cake is on offer on arrival. The rooms are well decorated and comfortable, maintaining the age and elegance but with the modern comforts that are a requirement. Breakfasts are... More

This was our first stay at Beach Lodge - what a stunning 'Art Nouveau' design building. We were welcomed by Martin with a very 'welcome' cup of tea and home-made cake. (Faith was in the kitchen making home made jam). Our lovely 'beach-themed' room was spotlessly clean - the breakfasts were absolutely delicious, (especially the home-made preserves and pancakes with... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Beach Lodge for the second year running and could not have faulted it if we'd tried! We stayed in the Silver Birch room again and it was immaculately spotless.

We spent four nights at Beach Lodge last week and had a wonderful, happy time throughout. My husband, our teenage children and I love this place and, also, the owners!

My husband and I stayed at the Beach Lodge for two nights, whilst we were in Bournemouth for a wedding. From the minute we walked in we were very well looked after, with tea, cake and biscuits - and this continued all through our stay. Breakfast was fab. Spotlessly clean room. Personal touches everywhere. Martin and Faith are very warm... More
