Hands down the best b&b in the area. I have never stayed in such a fantastic bed and breakfast establishment before. The room was decor was spot on all of the attention to detail was perfect and little touches such as free cookies and brownies on the way up to the rooms rounded it all off nicely. The room was...

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. Lovely comfortable room....IMMACULATE in terms of cleanliness, breakfast... More

Thank you. We always appreciate it when people don't usually write a review but take the time to write us one. Glad you liked the granola - people do ask for the recipe but we would have to kill them afterwards :) ! We look forward to seeing you again... More

As a single female getting on in years I decided to book a room for a 5 day stay. I was given a warm and friendly greeting by Teresa which was much appreciated and she kindly took my bag up to my room for me. The room was clean and cosy with everything I would need and although not 'en-suite'... More

We had a lovely overnight stay here. Booked the amazing afternoon tea for our arrival - great attention to detail and gorgeous food. Good night's sleep followed by tempting and varied breakfast menu. Highly recommended.

14 family members took over this guest house for last weekend as we were attending a family wedding in Bournemouth/Poole. Our rooms were very clean & tastefully modernised in this 1884 building. We loved the relaxed atmosphere that has been created by the mother & son owners. The honesty bar & little touches like sweets & biscuits on the landing... More

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

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.

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
