My parents booked me and my husband in here for two nights for our honeymoon last week. We turned up and got the best welcome, a big congratulations, some recommendations for what to do with our time in Bournemouth. They had gone to the effort of putting rose petals on our bed, a bunch of roses on the tea tray... More

This very pleasant accommodation is a little hard to classify. It is somewhat more commercial than the average B&B, but not quite a boutique hotel. It is situated in the Westbourne area of Bournemouth. This puts you just away from the bustle and amusement arcades of the main part of town, but only 30min very easy walk to the main... More

What an amazing place. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent, with a great range to choose from. Would definitely stay there again (already planning our next trip!) and will recommend to my friends.

We saw the Living Room on 4 in a Bed so when invited to a wedding in Bournemouth decided to stay there although we are not normally fans of B&Bs. As it is open to the public during the day for coffee, light lunches and delicious afternoon tea it didn't feel like a B&B. Our twin room (1) on the... More

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, especially as the room was chosen for you by the academy. You were a pleasure to meet & we are always even more impressed by anyone who manages a run before breakfast (or at any time for that matter)! Hopefully we will see you again. Thank you.

Excellent breakfast and location, lovely walk to the beach area, and a real at home feeling about the B&B. We stayed in room 2 with it's lovely bay window and shabby chic decor, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. On arrival we were made very welcome, as we were throughout our stay. A real plus is the... More

I arranged a two night stay at this delightful B&B Guest House in Bournemouth for our 34th Wedding Anniversary. A totally superb stay. We loved the hospitality of our Hosts Teresa and Zak. The little vase of fresh flowers and love hearts were very touching. Rooms are beautifully clean and spacious and décor in the whole of the Guest House... More

Brilliant b&b! Lovely friendly hosts, great attention to detail, room decor very nice. Breakfasts were plentiful and with a huge variety to choose from. They cater for all dietary requirements nothing too much trouble. We will definitely return!

Stayed here overnight for a friends wedding. Due to the difficulties of getting to the living room to check-in between the ceremony and the reception the keys were dropped off to us at the reception. This was a phenomenal service. Thank you very much.
