Have just spent three days at this Bed and Breakfast and I can't recommend it highly enough. The breakfasts were far superior to anywhere else I have ever stayed. It was my birthday whilst we were there and there was a cake in our room left with a candle in it. We had a lovely room at the top of... More

My partner and I came here as part of our mini honeymoon. When we arrived, there were wedding balloons, wedding card, sticks of rock and cake waiting for us in our room. We are both gluten free and Fran accommodated this so well as she is gluten free herself. The rooms were beautiful, breakfast was stunning (try the pancakes) and... More

It is always lovely to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us and take the time to post the terrific reviews we receive. We are so pleased with our Booking.com score as every review is authenticated and guests have to stay before they are able to post a review unlike many other review sites. It was a... More

This was our second visit to Fran & Mal's wonderful guest house. We can't praise them enough for the welcome we had, the lovely room & wonderful breakfasts. 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

Last year we visited friends & family in the area and when we planned to do the same this year the first thing we did was look up this place, when we saw it was the same owners and still highly rated we had no hesitation in booking it. The B&B was just as excellent as last year. Mal and... 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

We returned here after two years for another short break and were so pleased we did. We stayed in Room 5 which was beautifully presented with those lovely seaside touches that Mal and Fran do so well. They are so willing and helpful with great knowledge of the area and its restaurants. The house is immaculate and their attention to... More
