Very friendly and helpful owners, clean, & quiet. Good location close to beach and restaurants. Beds were comfortable, good shower with plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast. WLAN available for teenagers (and others). All in all, highly recommended.

Very friendly owners Hazel and Keith. Beautiful room, spotlessly clean. Very comfortable kingsize bed. Tastefully decorated rooms and public areas. Great location only minutes from beaches, shop etc. Highly recommended. I am sure the breakfast would have been great but we overslept and had to leave very quickly as we had an appointment to keep. Will be back to try... More

We stayed at the Woodside for three nights in late September and enjoyed a great break in Southbourne. We had the same room as our last stay in 2014 and found the same excellent comfort and cleanliness. Breakfasts choices are varied and flexible and cooked beautifully. The breakfast room is well laid out and a comfortable size for easy conversation... More

We were lucky enough to book into The Woodside because of a last minute cancellation. Met Keith at check-in and knew that we would enjoy our stay....very friendly and funny person. Our room (# 3) was spotlessly clean and had a king size bed....which can be hard to find in some B&B's. As stated in many other reviews, the breakfast... More

We stayed at this excellent B&B for a week after I had read the rave reviews on this site .Because of the location both near the beach and Southbourne town centre, we left the car at home and used the public transport network. Hazel and Keith were great hosts and were caring and compassionate, particularly to their elderly guests. The... More

Staying at The Woodside was more than I expected. Hazel's fried bread is the best and Keith is ever so ready to help with any information you need. The rooms are very comfortable and clean all the time with great wifi services too. Its a great location I definitely recommend it.

We had a long weekend at the Woodside, on our arrival we were greeted by Keith and Hazel. They were more than accommodating, the day before our trip I called ahead to let them know about my boyfriends food intolerance's and this was catered to, with a personal pot of soya milk on our breakfast table (which he loved) and...

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
