We stayed for 2 nights in the lovely The Woodside B&B. Nice and well equipped rooms, a cosy sphere as one expect it from a typical B&B. Hazel and Keith are perfect hosts with loads of good hints what to do and what to see in Bournemouth and the whole Jurassic Coast. Real home made breakfast is standard and so... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Woodside and Keith & Hazel could not have been nicer people. I really liked our chats about the midlands and the room itself was excellent (a really comfortable bed!). I'm already looking forward to a return visit later in the year.

Just as others have said the Woodside is the place to stay near the seafront in Southbourne. Our room was spotlessly clean and welcoming and the en suite bathroom had been carefully designed to make best use of the space. The whole house was in a good state of decoration and was obviously well looked after. Our breakfast was atractively... More

We have stayed at this guest house twice now and on both occasions we have experienced an enjoyable and relaxing time. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, taking care to make sure your stay is just right. The breakfast is freshly cooked and plenty of it too. We have experienced a few of the rooms, having stayed with family... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Woodside. Without a doubt, the cleanest B+B I have ever stayed in. Rooms were very homey, and great attention to detail. Relaxed, organized, extremely helpful. Breakfast cooked to perfection. I would certainly stay again and would recommend to others.

Super friendly, helpful owners, with a smile on their face and do help out, to make you feel really at home! My previous visit to Bournemouth was not pleasant, when I stayed at a different guest house, but now I like Bournemouth and will visit again and stay at the Woodside Danica

Many young members of our family come to see us annually throughout the year and as our home is very small, they stay at a nearby hotel/guest house. Although we know of other local hotels, unquestionably every time alike the children ask us to book them back into The Woodside, and I have just rebooked for the beginning of December... More

Currently living in Spain I needed to return to the Bournemouth area and visit friends and relatives but wanting somewhere central and chilled out to stay. The Woodside is ideally situated for the beach and plenty of bars and café/restaurants all in easy reach. Keith and Hazel are excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for me. Room was superb, clean,...
