Good price Value, £60 per day. 10 minutes from the beach (Boscombe Pier) Very nice staff, funny towels sculptures Breakfast below average (Sausage and bacon not good, beans cold, rest ok) Really hard to park in the street during day. Ok for the night. Need to ask for soap, felt that our requests to the boss were perceived as annoying.

Stayed at The Westby for one night and it was great. Claire was incredibly welcoming and helpful upon our arrival. The room was clean and nicely decorated and the bed was really comfy so slept well. The Westby is nice and close to Boscombe beach - around a five minute walk which was fab. Breakfast was lovely and served quickly.... More

Everything was superb! Clean, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast and very amenable staff. We will definitely be staying again! My husband and I had a wonderful weekend in Bournemouth. The room was very spacious but it could have done with an extra shelf in the bathroom.

Sadly only stayed for one night in this immaculate Guest House but our stay was made perfect by the beautiful decor. Clair was the most friendly host and the great breakfast set us up for the day, our room was first class, comfortable and quiet.. What more can we say but thankyou Clair.
