Having searched Tripadvisor for a suitable bed and breakfast, we decided to stay in the Southern Breeze Lodge for four nights. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Mal and Fran, and shown to our room which was number 1 and overlooked the road. The room was fabulous, decorated with great thought and very very homely. It was well stocked... More

The best B&B I have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, modern and very welcoming. Mal and Fran really go out of their way to make your stay special. You can tell when someone's really passionate about what they do. Excellent breakfast, and the largest selection of jams and spreads I've ever seen!! and nothing was too much trouble. Free wifi in...

This was our first visit and it certainly won't be our last. Mal and Fran are so naturally friendly that you feel like you've arrived home - nothing is too much trouble. The accommodation is spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast menu is refreshingly varied - the pancakes were delicious! The location is very pleasant as it's a very short... More

Mal and Fran welcomed us on arrival. Room 5 spotlessly clean with large en-suite shower room.Large range of choice for breakfast,probably the most comprehensive we have ever seen in a B&B. The traditional cooked breakfast was very tasty and cooked to perfection by Fran.Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. We sat outside in the courtyard garden, which was... More

Mal and Fran were exceptional hosts and made you feel very welcome. The breakfasts were first class as was the bedroom, it was our first visit but could recommend anyone to go. We were last in Southbourne 15 years ago but the New Forest still hold its beauty for a visit as did Christchurch and Swanage. Hope to visit again... More
