My daughter and I stayed here for a few nights over Easter. The location was great, a beautiful walk down the Chine to the beach. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious and easily catered for a gluten free diet. The room was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend and revisit.

We chose this bed and breakfast for its proximity to Bournemouth and availability for the Squeeze concert. Our room was a good size and had an en suite shower room. The en suite was very clean and the room was very warm and cosy at the beginning of some very cool weather. There was information about places to eat and... More

Lovely bed and breakfast. Beautiful rooms, comfortable bed. Very friendly owners. Great location, few mins walk to the beach and to the many bars and restaurants. Great home cooked breakfast. If in this area again will definitely be re booking.

This was our second visit this year and once again we found the place very much to our liking. Its proximity to the woods and the sea is an obvious bonus and the quaint village of Westbourne is also on their doorstep. We had the Superior room this time and it is an elegant comfortable place to snore the night... More

We stayed in a twin room looking over the back of the building. Everything was clean and beautifully presented. The beds were very comfy and the room spacious. The bathroom had a large walk in shower and the shower pressure was great. The windows opened to allow in some fresh air, essential for us Northerners to acclimatise to the warm... More

Located in a western suburb of Bournemouth, near The a Avenue, this is a useful location given it is relatively quiet and has parking and and WiFi. Very friendly and pleasant host who has also converted the downstairs breakfast room to a cafe, mostly visited by locals. Our room and bathroom was spotlessly clean, decent towels and comfortable beds.

We absolutely loved our stay at The Living Room B&B, our room was extremely clean, bright and spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. The shabby chic décor was really unique and a nice change from most contemporary B&Bs. The welcome brownies were a nice touch and really yummy! The breakfast was always delicious and Teresa and Zak were really friendly... More
