Despite having to be greeted by the lady who cleans, who by the way is really charming and superb at her job, I was bowled over by almost everything at the Living Room. Bedrooms have been modernised whilst downstairs has a sort of charm in a shabby chic sort of way which frankly is not my particular taste BUT the... More

We stayed in the Living Room in July and would like to say what a lovely place it was. Myself, husband and two young children stayed in a family room which was light, spacious and charming. It had a separate little room for the kids which they loved within the room. The breakfast was fab with a huge choice to... More

I had a truly delightful stay here after booking a room for a local wedding. The staff were attentive, fun and really quite charming. The room was immaculate and had real character, very comfortable and a perfect space to relax in after a long day. The breakfast was spot on and the full menu was full of delicious options (I...

We stayed in the "Living Room Bournemouth" in June, and would like to share what a lovely friendly accommodation if was! The room was bright, light, and very spacious with a large en-suite, the owners were really friendly as it's family run and we were very warmly welcomed on arrival. The breakfast was absolutely amazing and there was plenty of... More

We booked very last minute, so hadn't really researched the area, relying on the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Firstly, the bonus of a 'living room' coffee shop was great, then our room actually matched with the photos (so often with B&Bs the rooms don't quite live up to expectation!), with a spacious, immaculately clean bathroom....

I organised a weekend stay at the Living Room for my dad's 70th birthday celebrations - and put the living room through their paces in the process! 15 people, of which 5 kids of different ages, different arrival and departure times and generally a lot to organise. And everything was perfect! Teresa and Zach are fabulous hosts - they were... More

I booked into The Living Room by chance having seen it on a booking site. I only needed a single room as I was travelling alone to visit my son who could not fit me in. I don't normally travel alone but at no time during my stay did I feel conspicuously on my own. Parking was good and the... More

It's nicely located for walking to the beach through Alum Chime (great walk). Breakfast was great and it was hard to chose as it all... More

Booked as a last minute couple of nights away and what a find! Lovely room (superior room), comfortable bed, brilliant shower room - the little jar of brownies are a lovely touch. Great choice of breakfasts. A really inviting, homely place, spotlessly clean, on site parking. A pleasant walk through Alum Chine down to the beach, easy reach of amenities.... More

Thanks, we are glad you enjoyed the area AND breakfasts. As soon as we have more staff we will be opening longer hours - unless you would like the job of cook & waitress?! (We could pay you in breakfasts!) More
