We stayed for 1 night - wish we had booked for a few more! Very friendly, welcoming B&B. Nicely decorated (though we are not fans of shabby chic.) , The brownies were delicious - a nice touch. Great breakfast. Could not have asked for more.

Can't speak highly enough of this place! We were warmly welcomed by our hosts and shown to our beautiful room (2) which was absolutely spotless. Never stayed in a B&B before so wasn't sure what to expect but would, without a doubt, return to this place. It was a really nice touch to have a couple of homemade brownies in... More

It is really kind of you to write us a review considering you arrived in the midst of a noisy cleaning frenzy in preparation for our expected top secret 'guests'! You were such low maintenance & very understanding. Hopefully you will visit again & we will promise not to try & trip you up with hoover wires! Thank you. More

We stayed at the Living Room for 1 night only and were extremely pleased with our selection. We had never stayed at a guesthouse before as we had always selected hotels. However, the Living Room changed my perceptions of guesthouses!. We were warmly greeted by Teresa and made to feel at home. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is... More

We are pleased you came over to the dark side of 'guesthouses'! It meant that we were lucky enough to meet you both as well as you sample us! Hopefully you will visit again so that you get more time to relax & support Bournemouth in a winning match! Thank you. More

We had a great stay at thus B&B. The room was beautifully decorated with lovely touches such as homemade brownies, the bottle of water & the most original kettle I have ever seen. The ensuite was lovely with its glorious red tiles and with a bonus of a good shower too. I loved the decor throughout especially the dining area... More

We are so pleased the kettle has got a mention - we spent 2 days arguing, I mean debating which ones would suit the room & then someone used it as a teapot! Thank you for taking the time to describe us as superior to other places in the area as we think we are too! I hope you are... More

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

Sonia the cleaner said you 'made her day' with this review. We loved the fact that even though you don't personally like the shabby chic/vintage look you still gave us 5/5! Ironically we were not here to greet you because we got trapped in traffic when we went to buy a vintage ebay find, sorry! Thank you for the review... 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....

It's good to hear we could provide you with a 'seaside fix' along with the beach towels! We work really hard to live up to expectations of our marketing because we know it can be really disappointing arriving somewhere & it's nothing like the portrayed images-so thank you for making the effort to show your appreciation as well as to...

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

Thank you for booking the whole hotel for your family & then even finding time to write a review. It's lovely when the whole building can be utilised by one group. Your dad was an inspiration to us all - celebrating his 70th AND walking down to swim every day at 8am! More
