Another year another perfect stay, room 1 now has a special mirror, you look in it and i was 6inches taller and 5 stone thinner. My wife asked Chris where she had purchased such a magical mirror but she insists we come back next year if we want to look in the magic mirror again. Seriously another great stay with... More

You only have to read all the positive reviews to know you are onto a winner choosing to stay here. My husband and I stayed here for two nights during our short road trip of the South Coast and had an absolutely fantastic stay. Chris and John are first class hosts and provide a superb breakfast with lots of choice... More

My wife and I visited Bournemouth for the air festival in 2015 and stayed for two nights. Chris and John must have second sight - Everything you’re going to ask for will already have been considered. Our room (Nr2), which is garden side, was elegantly presented, clean, quiet, comfortable and very well equipped (familiar yourselves with the contents of the... More

My wife and I came here at the start of our honeymoon. Everything about the stay was perfect - a wonderful welcome, excellent cake, great selection on the tea tray, wonderful breakfast, and super comfortable room. I can't recommend this place highly enough and really look forward to returning.

What can I add to the already shining reviews here? Chris & John's hospitality is second to none, they could not have been more accommodating. We stayed in room 4 which had a large bathroom with a tub - they even provided bubble bath which was just lovely! A shame that the weather during our visit was miserable, but that... More

Five years in a row for our summer visit to Bed & Breakfast by the Beach and somehow each visit is better than the last! Thanks Chris and John for a wonderful vacation destination. You always make us feel so welcome and comfortable. Everything is first class! I know there must be other good B&B's in England, but honestly, when... More

This is only the second review I have written after many trips away and is definitely worth the time. Chris and John ARE bed & Breakfast by the Beach. Their warmth, infectious spirit and attention to detail are second to none. I would vouch for this place again and again and guarantee you will enjoy your stay whatever the weather!

Chris and John were so accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely home, rooms good, fresh cakes outside the rooms, which my Daughter enjoyed. Breakfasts out of this world. I have never seen a better selection of food. Being Coeliac I have trouble finding anything suitable but Chris and John made sure I did not go without from gluten free... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Bed &Breakfast by the Beach. This is genuinely the first review I have ever written, but felt compelled to do so as this B&B was jaw-droppingly good. Absolutely everything was thought of for guests' comfort; immaculately spotless everywhere, supremely comfortable bed, beautiful decor, outrageously varied and delicious breakfast choices, the list of compliments...
