“Wonderful people, the kindest you can ever wish to meet, great room and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Myself and my partner stayed at Sunhaven on Friday night, having arrived in Bournemouth under difficult circumstances due to it being after 10.30pm and having a relative with a serious illness in hospital, Sunhaven's owners were the only people who provided us with a room with such kindness and hospitality. We will never forget their kindness after experiencing so many other B&B's and guesthouses did not help us. They made up a lovely room for us so late at night and provided a wonderful full english breakfast. The facilities were absolutely excellent and I would not hesitate in highly recommending this guesthouse. A beautiful Guesthouse and, most importantly, warm, friendly and generous owners. Thank you again for all your kindness.

Great room, very comfortable, lovely people, fantastic breakfast, couldn't be better. Breakfast sausages were so good that we found out their supplier and went to get some ourselves on the way home. So nice we could almost forget that we had gone to Bournemouth for the funeral of a close friend.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at this first rate b&b I cannot praise the owners enough they made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived and were even kind enough to upgrade our room as i was celebrating a very special birthday. The location was perfect the accomodation couldnt of been any better from the ultra comfy bed to the powerful shower and a lovely balcony where you could sit and watch the world go by and the breakfasts were top notch It was spotlessly clean and so central to everywhere we wanted to go both in Bournemouth and further afield such as Sandbanks Christchurch Poole Boscombe Overall i cannot recommend this place highly enough many thanks to our wonderful hosts hope to see you again soon .

Room Tip: The triple room we had was lovely very spacious with the added advantage of a balcony with a sea vie...

First, the owners are lovely and more than accomodating. They couldn't do enough for us including specially buying breakfast for my other half.

The room was more than spacious with everything we could of needed and the bed was super comfortable. I wanted to take it home. As a previous review said, the room was clean all over with not one spot of dirt and grime.

All this for a very resonable price making a perfect weekend away for us in Bournemouth.

Thanks Mike & Sue again for being great hosts.

We've just come back from staying for five nights to attend a course in Bournemouth. Having lived in Southbourne and the come back for several trips since we have stayed in a fair few guest houses and hotels in the area. This is to date the best.

The breakfasts were excellent- I was devistated we had to miss one due to a ridiculously early start of the course! The rooms are cleaner than any guest houses I've stayed in (including grouting, round the sink, the kettle, window sill, carpet etc). The owners are exceptionally helpful, tolerant (of stressed people on courses) and friendly. Thank you.
