We've come back for another fantastic stay in Bournemouth at Westcotes House. The owners and staff are so friendly and helpful, lovely decor, stunning sea views, great breakfast. Once again we were able to park off road and store our kayaks and bikes in the onsite garage. There is no b&b quite like this one. Combines the best bits of... More

This is a really, really great B&B: lovely rooms with lovely décor, warm welcome, nice extras (like the complimentary wine and cake...), lovely breakfast. Location right on the sea front means there are fantastic views, and a 5 minute walk down to the beach. Highly recommended!

What a fantastic place and Parisa the young lady who looked after us should get a wage increase, she was brilliant not enough superlatives to describe our one night stay to visit the university the following day. Breakfast was beautifully presented and there was plenty of it, my son Liam can eat large quantities. If you're thinking of staying in... More

I stayed at Westcotes House with my family during half term October 2014. We were greeted by the staff who explained where everything was and made us feel at home straight away! The place is beautiful, so cozy and modern. We were the only guests in so it really felt like it was our own home. The bedrooms were fantastic,... More

We arrived at the Westcotes House on sunday morning and we've been greeted very well. We immediately felt like at home, our room was big, nice, tidy and clean.

Wish we could have stayed longer! We arrived a bit later than estimated, and were nonetheless cheerfully greeted by Graham, who directed us to the local Southbourne eateries, all within walking distance. Afterwards we walked across the road to Fisherman's Walk and the beach below. This is a beautiful house, with the fireplace in the front room and the sitting... More

Just back from a fantastic stay at Westcotes House. Loved the view from my room (room2), loved the little extras that make a stay perfect....tea and coffee in the room, honesty bar, even cake and sweet wine to help ourselves to in the lounge, big library of books, comfy couches in lounge and bar. I really felt at home. Breakfast... More

My wife and I brought my Mum here for a short break. We all loved it. A stunning location. The decor is stylish, yet homely. Ross was the perfect host - thank you!! A lovely breakfast. Simply perfect.

We stayed for just one night but Ross and the guys couldn't have been more welcoming or accomodating. We will certainly recommend it and plan to come back. The breakfast was delicious and the veiw from Room 2 spectacular. I did find the mattress a bit saggy but that's a minor point! The honesty bar, wifi and helpfulness were all... More

We stayed here again recently having also been here earlier in the year. The place is just great. We were in one of the seaview rooms with just the most brilliant view looking right out to sea and across to Poole harbour and beyond. We ate locally each day - couple of nice pubs nearby and a new restaurant in... More

Really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review; it was great to see you again. Glad that the view lived up to expectations : Room 1 and Room 2 have the best views (if you like the sea and the coastline, anyway!). Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Ross, Graham, David More
