I really enjoyed my stay at the Woodside, even though I stayed only for a night. The room was nice and very clean and the breakfast was superb! I will definitely come back and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to stay close to the beach.

We loved the location of Southbourne which is just 15 mins drive (45 min walk along the promenade) from Bournemouth city centre. The Woodside is 2 mins away from the promenade overlooking the beach. Hazel and Keith are fantastic hosts, very friendly, helpful and laid back without being at all intrusive. The B&B is clean comfortable and more than adequate... More

I stayed for eight nights at this wonderful guest house which is first rate. The rooms were spotless, well decorated and comfortable. The hosts Hazel and Keith were excellent, very friendly and welcoming and did everything they could to make my stay enjoyable. Would definitely recommend 'The Woodside' to anyone. I have already booked for a return visit.

If you are looking for a B&B that is excellent value for money, you've just found it! Friendly owners, spotless rooms, beach at one end of street, shops and restaurants at the other. Great breakfast and easy parking!

Had a lovely 2 night stay at this B&B while visiting Bournemouth for the Marathon Festival, the hosts Hazel & Keith made us feel very welcome. The double- room with ensuite was very clean and tidy, well decorated with complimentary tea/coffee. A good hearty breakfast, I can recommend the full-English, or whatever you would like including a good choice of... More

From the moment my husband and I drove up outside "The Woodside" we immediatly felt at home. Hazel and Keith greeted us in such a warm and friendly manner, and that is how it continued during our 5 night stay with them. Our bedroom was immaculate we had a huge comfortable bed and then we got up to a wonderful... More
