Have stayed with Hazel & Keith on several occasions. They offer consistently high standards within a friendly and efficiently managed B&B in Southbourne. Beach access is very good - just a short walk away. Recommended. Brian P

Enjoyed a few nights here in Aug 2016. Parked outside and met by the friendly owners. Shown to our room which was nice and clean. We had a view over the garden. Generally there are a few things that need a bit of work like yellowing paint, old plug sockets etc. We were a little surprised there were no biscuits...

Keith & Hazel were extremely hospitable the Breakfasts were outstanding quality prompt with a smile the only niggle I had was the shower, which wasn't very good with poor flow, which meant a struggle to get clean ,but this is a bit churlish considering the clean room and wonderful hosts

Spotlessly clean room, pleasant decor throughout. Access to lots of useful information regarding places of interest in the area and beyond. Excellent choices for breakfast, more than enough to set you up for the day. Certainly hope to return to The Woodside at some future date. As a solo traveller felt VERY comfortable. Parking facilities very welcome, but you can...

We were visiting family in the area and chose, by chance, to stay at The Woodside. From the minute we arrived we felt the whole house to be friendly and welcoming. The room was quiet, pristine and with the most wonderful, comfortable bed with good pillows. Whilst we only had a cooked breakfast one morning, it was certainly an excellent...

Keith and Hazel were excellent hosts, so friendly and helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean, bright and beautifully turned out. The breakfasts were a delight and they were so nice dealing with my wife's gluten-free requirements. Southbourne is in easy reach of Bournemouth by bus and has a some lovely local restaraunts and bars.

My boyfriend and I returned last week from a long weekend in Bournemouth. I chose to book a room at the Woodside based upon its excellent reviews, and it did not disappoint. Keith and Hazel are truly friendly and welcoming hosts, which is exactly what we needed on our arrival following a 7 hour drive from Leeds! Our room was...

Good location. Hazel and Keith could not have been more helpful. They rose to the challenge of my special diet without a qualm. Our room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Easy access to the beach where you can walk along into Bournemouth in one direction or to Hengistbury Head in the other direction. Also very close to Southbourne High Street...
