We absolutely loved our stay at The Living Room B&B, our room was extremely clean, bright and spacious with plenty of wardrobe space. The shabby chic décor was really unique and a nice change from most contemporary B&Bs. The welcome brownies were a nice touch and really yummy! The breakfast was always delicious and Teresa and Zak were really friendly... More

We didn't stay here but we came in a few times for breakfast while we were staying in the area. I'd consider it a real find. It's very cool, very friendly, excellent quality of food and at the same time very child friendly with toddler cups and cutlery and a toddler seat in the loo and lovely changing table. I'd... More

My Husband and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate his 30th Birthday. Everything was perfect -- the room was spotlessly clean and everything you could want was there. The owners and staff have obviously put a great deal of thought and effort into making this a wonderful experience for guests. The breakfasts were delicious and there was a... More

My daughter booked a 1 night stay as this was the only time off she could get and possibly the only one available during the Bournemouth Air Festival when it is extremely busy everywhere. We know the area as Bournemouth is my home town although have now lived in Lymington for 40 years! We had the family room on the... More

Stayed for one night on 13th. What a shame as I would have liked to stay longer. Bedroom was very pretty with a really good shower. Only had breakfast but that was very well cooked and presented. The menu had some really interesting items for anyone wanting something a little different. Thank you 'The Living Room' and see you again.

This is a lovely place to stay, ideal location for us, parked car and just walked and cycled everywhere. Our room had a dble bed, p shaped bath with shower over, plenty of hanging space and drawers for knik knaks, tea/coffee stuff and chocolate brownies to die for...... we only had breakfast but it was the best one ever!

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
