I had the pleasure of staying last night at this charming Bed and Breakfast ( a desirable home from home would be more accurate ) and could not recommend it more highly. Sheila the Owner was charming, most welcoming and such an interesting Lady to talk to. The accommodation provided is delightful and the decor, facilities and breakfast were absolutely... More

My wife and I spent 3 days in the beachside, no fault whatsoever, good breakfast and a homely welcome you would expect from a B&B, the room was cosy and had everything you needed plus a few nice little extras. location was ideal with a cheap and cheerful pub around the corner and the beach bars a little further down...

My husband and I spent two nights here and would have liked longer. Very clean,beautifully decorated home, very welcoming, can not think of any way it could be improved. We stayed in the twin room, quite small but very well equipped, lovely bathroom, great to have a relaxing soak after a day sightseeing or walking. I have already recommended it... More

This was our first visit to Beachside and we can't recommend it highly enough. It's in a perfect location, just a 5 minute walk from the beautiful beach and within easy reach of Mudeford Quay and Christchurch town centre. Sheila was warm and welcoming and really made us feel at home. She was extremely helpful, giving us lots of local... More

A warm and relaxing welcome to a return visit made even nicer by the well fitted and comfortable accommodation complete with very good choices for breakfast. Location quiet and very close to the sea and central for visiting other places of interest in the area. It will not be last time we visit Beachside.

We stayed at the lovely Beachside B&B for one night in Sheilas double room! We were welcomed by a very friendly owner Sheila who took us through everything we needed to know and we were very impressed with the cleanliness, tidiness and great location of this B&B. For me cleanliness is very important and Sheilas B&B ticked all the boxes.... More

It is very well located, in a quiet residential area, within easy walking distance of the quay/beach. The rooms are a reasonable size, comfortable and thoughtfully furnished and equipped - we have stayed in more expensive places that did not work as well. The ensuite bathroom was on the small side but well laid out and organised to make up... More

My partner and I recently stayed at Beachside. We wanted somewhere, near the beach that was clean and comfortable. We certainly found this here. Our room was large, bright, immaculately clean and Sheila obviously takes pride in her B & B. If we come back to Christchurch we will certainly stay here. The breakfasts were freshly cooked, served in lovely... More
