“All Round Excellent, Reconmended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We have just returned from a three night stay at The Woodside and our delightful hosts Keith and Hazel made us feel welcome from the moment of arrival. Our room was well furnished, comfortable and very clean, a standard that continued throughout our stay. The food was excellent, with a good choice of food.
The Woodside is situated in a quieter part of town, a short walk from the beach at Southbourne.There is some excellent walking opportunities with the center of Bournemouth just three miles away. For those that are less energetic there is a good bus service into town just a short walk away.
Should you need any ideas of places to visit Keith and Hazel have a great local knowledge.
For anybody visiting Bournemouth who prefer the quieter location We would highly recommend THE WOODSIDE. .

We stayed at The Woodside for 2 nights and had a great time.

The room was clean, comfortable and had an en suite shower room and toilet. The bed was lovely and soft and we had 2 great nights sleep.

The B&B is a short walk from Southborne beach and is only 3 miles away from the main Bournemouth beach.

Breakfast was made to order and was lovely. There was a good choice of hot and cold food.

Hazel and Keith were great hosts and I would most definately stay again in the future.

Keith and Hazel made us very welcome as soon as we arrived. Our ensuite room was clean, tidy,comfortable and well decorated. The complimentry tea tray and toiletries were replenished daily. The dining room is tastefully decorated and tables set out well. Breakfast was very good, all our dietray needs were met.
The Woodside Hotel is situated in a good location,ideal for a beach holiday, sightseeing or theatre break.
Will be staying at the Woodside again.

Room Tip: Room 3 Sunny in morning. Good having vertical blinds and quality lined curtains.

We spent two nights at the Woodside while we were looking for houses. It was a good decision. The welcome from Keith & Hazel was very warm, friendly and helpful. The room was adequate but very clean and restful although it helped that we had a single adjoining room. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. The hotel was very close to the local beach so that going for a walk was a pleasure. We would not hesitate to make another booking if we had to stay in the area again.

I have been staying at the Woodside Hotel regularly since about 2004 and have always found it to be of excellent value for money, really friendly welcoming hosts in Hazel & Keith close to beach also Bournemouth town centre etc, easy walking distance of the Beach,many shops ,cafes,bars etc.
The place is always clean tidy and well decorated etc.Has WiFi/ digital TV ,etc
The hosts are always willing to cater for anyones needs etc
I would thoughly recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in Bournemouth for a few days.

Room Tip: Difficult as all the rooms are quiet and equally good

In need of a good break we saw The Woodside on the internet and having read the reviews decided to book. We were not disappointed.
Good location and within walking distance of the beach and places to eat.
With friendly and welcoming Landlords good food and a comfortable bed we couldnt have wished for a better break away.
Overall very pleased with this well presented clean bed and breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

We have stayed here for the last few years and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The location of The Woodside is really good, walking distance to the beach, local shops and transport if you haven't a car. Hazel and Keith are wonderful hosts and make you really welcome. Nothing is too much trouble it seems! The food is good and plentiful and the rooms spotless. We always have a wonderful time and would recommend The Woodside to everyone.
