Lovely clean B&B. The Living Room is in a brilliant location, not far from the beach or centre, good sized double room with fresh filtered water every day. Brownies/cakes left out for guests and we had 2 very yummy breakfasts! Loved the decor, especially in the breakfast room, we wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. Thank you... More

It is really thoughtful of you to write us a review considering you were hardly even here because of the competition- you were the easiest guests ever! Well done for winning the cup, we wish you many more successful & enjoyable competitions. Thank you for choosing to stay here. More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We had a lovely warm friendly welcome and as we arrived early we parked our car and the owners took our bags to our rooms when it had been cleaned. B&B is very quirky, a modern time warp!! Room was spotless and the ensuite was lovely. Only downside is the twin... More

Food - A big selling point for this B&B, which also runs as a cafe during the day. The breakfasts were fantastic! Great range of cooked options for both meat-eaters and vegetarians. The first day I had pancakes with bacon and maple syrup; the second day I had a full English. When I had the full English, Teresa bought me... More

My wife and i stayed last weekend to celebrate her birthday and found the hotel easily met our expectations. Lovely breakfasts, and a lovely hostess who couldn't do any more for you. Nice area too, we have no problem recommending this place.

Always a pleasure. Worth a visit simply to sit in breakfast room and admire the furnishings. Place spotless, breakfasts varied, coffee exceptionally good. The owners take a great pride in their B&B and it shows. Relaxed, efficient and friendly service. The easy access to the beach via the woods is just one of the many reasons to stay here. Can't...

I was so thrilled upon reading such glorious reviews of this award winning B&B to find the Large twin room available for my required dates. although I had conducted the search on a well known booking website (by typing in 2 adults and 2 infants), I wanted some more information about the room, so I went onto the B&Bs own...

This review does not even deserve a response - it has more holes in it than a Swiss cheese and the family have not stated here. AS such it has been reported to Trip Advisor and Booking.com. Needless to say we ALWAYS put our customers needs first including ensuring their stay is comfortable and they have paid a fair price... More

Winner of Bournemouth Tourism Guest Accommodation of the Year 2012 & 2013 as well as Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2012, 2013 & 2014. The B&B has seven spacious, individually styled rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms. As a family run business we specialise in providing a friendly, informal service tailored to individual requirements. The AA Breakfast Award winning breakfasts offer delicious full cooked options from the classic to the more unusual like Ham Hock Hash, homemade granola and plenty of tasty vegetarian or gluten free options. We promise you, you will not find anywhere else like The Living Room in Bournemouth for value for money, quality food, its unpretentious quirky environment or the pleasurable experience. Our emphasis is on helping customers feel relaxed by offering comfortable beds, clean and well maintained rooms, amazing food and caring, attentive service. The experience is added to by us being situated in the undoubtedly best part of Bournemouth ten minutes' walk in between the glorious Alum Chine beach (accessed by the peaceful chines) as well as the boutique and independently run businesses of Westbourne. As Bournemouth has been voted one of the happiest places to live in the UK we feel that we have no option but to pass on the infectious and rejuvenating vibes! ... more   less
