“Very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We will be going back to this B/B. It was just perfect.
Situated next to the shops beach, but in a quiet street.
Breakfast was very good, everything you could need.
I left my ear rings in the room and by the time I got home there was a phone call to say they were in the post, how honest is that. Thanks Howard and Sharon

Stayed just for one night but the owners seemed to be very friendly, room was clean and airy, excellent breakfast choice and the BB is very conveniently located (5 minutes to the beach and Boscombe town centre).

I booked last minute to visit my mother is hospital who fell ill while in Bournemouth. Howard was standing at the door to greet me as I arrived - lovely first impression. Then he told me that, as he was not full he had upgraded me from a single to a double room - another nice surprise. He svn lent me an i-phone charger! Then I met his lovely family - all friendly and welcoming - even Milo the dog! 5 minutes walk to Boscombe pier and 2 minutes to the high strew shops - great location. THEN I experienced breakfast - now that's what I call a breakfast! Look at the photo! Ignore the old reviews as Howard and Sharron only took over this year. I shall be staying here again!

Room Tip: Bathroom was quite small but immaculately clean. They have updated it a little but it still has the...

Stayed with my young daughter and the greeting was fantastic, Okay we all originated from Yorkshire...... Anyway, the room was excellent, plenty of space and they even had hot chocolate available in the room, we enjoyed that. The breakfast was good, although we are more cereal and toast people than cooked breakfast. I have already booked the next two stays in Bournemouth and will stay here as often as possible. I have spent 4 years staying in hotels in Bournemouth and am happy to have found the best.

Room Tip: For a small family, Room 3 is fantastic place

4 of us stayed here for 1 night (2 rooms). Very pleasant place. Owners were really friendly, the rooms are quite spacious and clean. 10 minute walk from Boscombe beach. Would definately stay here again...

We (a young couple with 3 guys) went for a little holiday in Bournemouth and found this B&B. The couple who ran it were very welcoming and very helpful when we asked places for places to go. Really nice breakfast and clean rooms. For £30 a night it was a good deal

I have stayed here twice this summer as I was househunting & on both occassions have found the owners very friendly & helpful, my rooms comforable & spotlessly clean & the breakfast excellent. It is within easy walking distance of Boscombe beach & also close to the shops. All in all it's really good value for money
