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. (Compliments to the chef.) The proprietor... More

This is the first time I've tried a B&B in Bournemouth and it is a lovely one! very friendly and spotlessly clean - very impressed. The breakfast selection was amazing - somthing for everyone - I had the Gluten Free Corn fritters with Halloumi cheese, the home made chilli jam was gorgeous! The room I stayed in was very clean...

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.

After reading all the reviews here I thought I'd opt for a bed and breakfast rather than a standard hotel. It was a very good thing I did! It was the first bed and breakfast I have been to and everything was just right! Location is great! it was a nice walk down to the beach.. a nice 10-15 minute... More

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. The B&B is a gorgeous boutique style building, which was stunningly clean, comfortable and ultimately relaxing. The room we stayed in was lovely and the bed was one of the most... More

I stayed here for one night. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have stayed in and the shower was excellent. One thing that stood out to me was the tea/coffee facility in our room and able to go downstairs and top up on fresh milk whenever you need it. We used the board games down the hall.... More

Loved my 2 night stay at the Living Room, clean, comfortable and spacious room with plenty of storage and hangers for my not so light travelling - well it is November! We found the Living Room to be unpretentious yet different to your average B&B which suited our taste. It was a long journey down from Shropshire and having spent... More

We booked two rooms for my husband and I and my mother for a couple of nights to use Bournemouth as a base for visiting the Isle of Wight and other Devon attractions and the manager Trish(?) was very helpful indeed. This is a great little B&B in walking distance to the stylish Westbourne shops and cafes but it was... More

It's good to hear you enjoyed your stay. It is a shame about the boiled eggs - sometimes eggs seem to be like hair & you end up with a bad egg day! I hope your very charming mother enjoyed the rest of her visit to the UK & thank you for your review. More

We had stayed at The Living Room on a few occasions when under the previous management and had always been happy. When we realised that there were different owners we were a bit apprehensive and actually looked at other accommodation. However the location is very handy for us to visit friends and family so we decided to give it a... More
