The atmosphere is great with Mal joining in with the banter at breakfast. Most of their guests are regulars so over the years people get to know each other. But with only... More

What a lovely place to get away for the weekend. A beautiful room and excellent breakfasts. It is only a short walk from the seafront at Southbourne where you can walk the promenade or spend time on the beautiful sandy beach. Our hosts were a lovely couple who pride themselves (...and rightly so,,,) on providing guests with a quality stay.... More
