We had a great time at The Woodside and Hazel and Keith certainly know how to make you feel at home. The room was clean and inviting, breakfast hit the spot and nothing was to much trouble. The location is great, 5 min walk and your on the beach or go in the other direction and your in Southbourne. If... More

Very convenient for beach, cliff walks, restaurants and main street for catching buses into Bournemouth and surrounding area. Very welcoming hosts, nice breakfast and comfortable bedroom. It was good to have a comfortable lounge where you could sit and relax at any time.

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!
