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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We had our honeymoon in Bournemouth 52 years ago and since then have been to Bournemouth area at least 44 times. Our past guest houses have either had the owner retire or die and one was pulled down for a car park. We chose The Woodside from the list on the website and found it to be excellent and will...

We started coming up to Southbourne about 8 years ago and found this b& B by accident. We can honestly say that it is a joy to stay there. Keith and Hazel are the splendid hosts that you would want to meet. The rooms are absolutely spotless. So clean. The breakfast is just right not too much and enough to... More

We would highly recommend this B&B - Keith and Hazel are so welcoming and nothing is to much trouble for them. The rooms are really comfortable and so clean and the breakfasts are fabulous and kept us going all day - we will definately be back.
