Puts large chain hotels to shame! Fresh coffee. Fresh fruit salad. And a stones throw away for a morning run on the beach. Thank you Teresa

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

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.

We couldn't have you leaving your Best Man duties to collect the key!! Thanks for writing us a review especially considering you were here for such a short time. More

A great find for a short break with my son in April 2015. The breakfast was a particular highlight as there were multiple gluten free cooked choices and gluten free cakes in the room on arrival were a nice touch. Pleasant service with clean bright rooms. A 5min walk to the beach through Alum Chine and you are on the... More

This was our first visit but hopefully not our last. It is a beautiful house, stylishly decorated with an impressive nod to the age of the property. The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and the bed comfortable. Breakfast choice was both varied and plentiful, coffee excellent (this is often not the case in many places). There is a nice casual...
