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 stayed here for 3 weeks as i was on a course in Poole and it was a lovely ltlle B&B. I only met Tom but he was a genuinly nice guy. He made me feel at home but also did not overwhelm me. The room was very clean and spacious with an en suite. The only problem was my... 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

Went for weeks holiday. Car parking easy and plentyfull. But access was on a blind bend and junction. The quest house was good and clean and the room well equpped. 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

We have stayed at Southernhay several times in the last three years. We have always been very impressed hence our regular returns. The room is comfortable, clean and well-appointed, the breakfasts are very good, and the owners Tom and Lynn very friendly and helpful. Parking is good and the location excellent. Bus stops outside, a few minutes walk to Westbourne... More

The accommodation was comfortable and clean as usual and the hosts were down to earth and friendly. nothing was too much... More

Nice location, close to shops and restaurants, about 20-30 mins walk to the beach through a garden/small forest. Distance to the city centre is about 15 mins by bus, very often but also quite expensive to go back and forward. The guest house we found it clean (although we found a cat in our bed when we arrived), but the... More
