This was a return trip to collect my son from uni. I wasn't disappointed . A very warm welcome and the owner even remembered me! A lovely room and a great atmosphere with a lovely breakfast. I will certainly return again. Thank you

I live about 5 miles from the Living Room so have never had the pleasure of staying here but come regularly with friends and family. Sometimes 2/3 a week! The menu is really different and always perfectly cooked. There is always a special on too so you can try something new and the chef is happy to swap things around... More

My husband and I are huge fans of the Living Room and so are our children aged 4 and 9. They serve a fresh, interesting and different twist on the traditional breakfast or brunch. My son loves to have potatoes rostis, poached eggs, halloumi, chorizo and hollandaise sauce. Everything is really tasty, the coffee is fantastic and my husband loves... More

My Mum and I stayed here for just one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the twin room on the first floor which was beautifully decorated, I really liked the shabby chic seaside theme. Teresa made us feel very welcome and gave us all the information we needed upon check in, pointed out the welcome info in the little... More

A couple of times a year we set off on the long journey South to visit friends and family. This was our 5th visit (at least) to The Living Room, 2nd under current management. The welcome is friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable, yummy complimentary brownies and lots of choice for breakfast. What is not to like? The location is... More

Situated a short walk from Westbourne and its useful amenities including shops, restaurants and cafés; this spacious accommodation with its charming hosts, was just the healing respite that The Doctor (46) had ordered.I would have liked to stay longer to have taken advantage of the proximity to beach, potential walks, and the great food.

Such a nice place to stay, very welcoming, fantastic breakfast. My misses is really fussy about hotels and this one got the thumbs up. A short walk to Westbourne with some nice places to eat. Close enough to take a beach walk to Bournemouth.

Stayed at the Living Room for 2 nights, and it was lovely. Great location, a short walk from Westbourne, and only a 15 minute stroll from Bournemouth its self.
