We arrived for a one-night stay and were delighted at what we found, including the warm and friendly welcome we had from Teresa the joint owner. The room was spotlessly clean with nice touches, including a very informative booklet about both the B&B and the area. We were attending a concert in the town and she was meticulous in explaining...

My partner and I stayed here the other night when attending a concert at the BIC. We always try and stay somewhere that has a little character and don't like chain hotels. We were greeted by Theresa who went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. We forgot our toothpaste, so the owner gave us a little salt... More

We are pleased you found us - we would love to bottle up the positive energy of you both to use when we feel down, you could sell it for a fortune! That & the double shot lattes would work wonders... Thank you. More

Stayed over for one of my regular trips to Bournemouth, I stay in B&B etc as I usually prefer the service than that of generic hotels. The room was a twin, it was comfy and bedding was good, I had to hide the alarm clock under a pillow as it ticks too loud for me, but I could have used... More

A very comfortable and clean hotel with friendly, accommodating staff. The rooms were lovely with great décor and tasty homemade brownies left in our room. There was also great choice on the breakfast menu. The Living Room is close to Alum Chine beach and in walking distance to Bournemouth town centre. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

Comfortable, clean and quiet room. Love the walk-in shower and being left a little bit of brownie each evening. Yummy breakfast and plenty of it. Lovely staff and very accommodating - we were able to leave our car parked there the day we checked out which helped us as we were worried about just where to leave it. Bit of... More

We are still talking about our Bournemouth holiday now. It was great, lovely breakfast, brownies in the room each day. 5 nights wasn't enough but at £120 per night in the family room and with a 1 & 2 year old it was really. We will be back but maybe stay in a self catering apartment until the kids get... More

My husband and I stayed overnight in a cosy room with a smart neat en suite shower. Lovely and clean. Large up to date TV on the wall. Yummy brownies to have with your cuppa and soft fluffy white dressing gowns in the wardrobe. Would have liked to stay longer and see more of the area. Great little place and... More

Friendly email received before we arrived and room 3 exceeded expectations very comfortable bed and immaculate as was ensuite.

We really value the feed back on Trip advisor and hence we booked up this B&B. Where do I start? We arrived and I introduced us to the Lady who I still do not know if it was the owner or not as she never introduced herself. She showed us to our room and said what time breakfast was. Any... More

Thank you for your review which came as a surprise as no issues were mentioned during your stay. We really appreciate it when our guests spend their own time supporting our business – we certainly wouldn't question the ‘validity’ of their reviews or the comments they make whilst here. However, I can understand how your review is important in the... More

What a delightful place. Very quirky and welcoming. Room 1 is delightfully decorated and the shower is huge! The beds are wonderful and comfy. The breakfast was delicious and I would definitely recommend a stay here.
