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

Nice and cozy atmosphere. Good environment, clean and comfortable room. Hazel and Keith have been brilliant as the host. I would highly recommended this place to everyone who want to get a quiet breakaway. The walk on the beach from piers to piers has been great and such an experience. I would definitely come back here again during summer.

We stayed at the Woodside B&B from 24th June to 27th June. We came from Scotland and were made very welcome, the breakfast was very good, plenty of choice and kept us going for the long trip back. The room was lovely and a well filled hospitality tray. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in the... More

Lovely bed and breakfast with great rooms and a fabulous breakfast. Keith and Hazel were helpful and friendly right from the first contact. They made everything easy for us and had great suggestions for nearby restaurants, etc. Even after we had checked out they were still lovely hosts by letting us stash luggage for the day and allowing me to...
