We have been visiting the Southernhay for a few years. We love Tom and Lyn and the way they make you feel really welcome but at the same time give you your own space. The B&B is located near to Westbourne which has a good range of restaurants, is a short walk to the beach through Alum Chine and is... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Southernhay B&B. I had just been on a long haul flight and really appreciated the very comfortable bed. I was visiting family in Westbourne so the location was ideal. And to walk in to Bournemouth only took me 20 mins. The breakfast was amazing EVERY morning, thank you. And a huge thank you... More

Really great location, close to some lovely restaurants and shops. It's also walking distance to the beach. We walked from the beach to Bournemouth and it was an easy pleasant trip. Tom was very welcoming and friendly, he had some good recommendations for the local area. The entrance is a difficult turn, as it's on a bit of a blind... More

Good location as close to Westbourne amenities and a 15 minute stroll through lovely Alum Chine to the beach. Ample car parking and very nice twin room with tea and coffee making facilities, sink and TV. Added to this was a very good breakfast which makes this an extremely good value for money guest house. The beds were a little... More

The B&B is easy to find, a lot of restaurants only 5 minute walk, easy to get around by nearby bus stops. Plenty of parking too. Lovely owners, Lynn & Tom helped us plan our short stay with they're knowledge of the area. The rooms are clean and comfy with plenty of space. The breakfast is brilliant, with thick crispy... More

I can not speak highly enough of the hospitality afforded us by Lynn and Tom who run the Southernhay B & B. We had a great week's holiday made even better by the fab breakfast so beautifuly cooked and presented by them both (though you really should try Tom's scrambled eggs!). Seriously, this is a great place to stay for... More

Thanks to Lynne and Tom for your hospitality during our stay in your Bed and Breakfast.Loved all the quirky things like the phone box and The John Wayne cardboard cut out that scared me on my return back after having a few beers. Breakfast great and the location for Bournmouth sea front was great. The walk down throught the park... More

Have just got home from two nights at The Southernhay Hotel. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, the service was second to none.. Took an interest in us, our journey, answered our questions, gave us information about ways to the beach, different tourist attractions etc.. Perfect. Breakfast was very nice and there was plenty. Extra toast... More

The bathroom was a little dated but the shower was another matter.i could not get into it as the gap between the half round doors was too small. My wife... More
