We've spent a single night there. It was really amazing! The room was clean and lovely decorated. The owners were friendly and welcomed us warmly. The breakfast was delicious! Thanks a lot for that pleasant stay!

My wife, two teenage daughters and I enjoyed 2 comfortable nights and very tasty breakfasts. I particularly enjoyed the hamhock. There is a good choice too. The owners have paid attention to detail in all aspects and it is spotlessly clean too. It is worth noting that if you have teenagers staying phone the owner to book as we were... More

From the moment you arrive the building looks very pretty and well kept, there's off street parking but also on street parking nearby. The lady offers a warm and friendly greeting (even when you've got her out of bed - check in closes at 7pm), with the rooms being well furnished with basic additions of tea, coffee, filtered water and...

We were impressed by you always knowing what breakfast you wanted before you even got into the dining room! Your review made us laugh as it shows how in hospitality guests have such different taste!

We spent two nights at the Living Room after deciding for ages where we wanted to stay, and we definitely made the right choice. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room, offered recommendations for the area and made to feel instantly comfortable. Every staff member is warm and extremely helpful without being overbearing, which I think is a... More

My friend and I had a lovely 2night stay here. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. It was a little hot on the first night so they kindly gave us a fan for the second night. The breakfasts were my favourite thing- absolutely delicious! And free tea and cakes throughout the day. We'll definitely be back!

Hands down the best b&b in the area. I have never stayed in such a fantastic bed and breakfast establishment before.

Being alone travelling on business can be nerve-racking in itself especially in an area I'm not familiar with. The staff here are so welcoming and friendly. This genuinely felt like a home away from home. A family run business and you really feel that as soon as you walk through the door.

The B&B has seven spacious, individually styled rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms.

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.

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
