Mory House
Ranked #3 of 131 Bournemouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Usually I like discovering new accommodations when I re-visit a town, but whenever I am in Southhourne/Bournemouth, I find myself returning to Mory House. And by now I must have been there 5/6 times. Instead of changing B&B, I change between the different rooms in Mory House! All the rooms are fabulous; nicely decorated, light, comfortable, very clean and have their own personality and little extras. And the beds are very comfortable.
Breakfast is amazing; with lots of fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, a range of different jams AND a selection of different cooked breakfast; all delicious and filling.
Nothing is too much for Jane and Patrick. Always very friendly, welcoming and very chatty. I enjoyed all out conversations and the homely atmosphere. I am always made to feel at home.
I cannot wait to go back and highly recommend this very special place.

This is my third or fourth stay at Mory House and it truly is a home away from home.

Jane, Patrick and family are warm and friendly hosts. The house is spotlessly clean and the rooms very comfortable. We have stayed in room 2, 4, and 5. Room 2 on the first floor is spacious and comfortable. Room 4 and 5 are on the second floor are a little smaller, and have slanted ceilings, so if you are quite tall, they may be a bit of squeeze! Room five has a a large bathroom with a bathtub with a shower. Room three has been recently renovated and has a small balcony over the garden.

The best part of staying at Mory House (besides the lovely people) is the cracking breakfast! You can choose from a light breakfast of fruit, yoghurt and cereal, or a full English breakfast and anything in between. Jane is also happy to accommodate dietary needs (gluten free bread, non-dairy milk etc).

Mory House is in a lovely location half way between the beach and the village of Southbourne, close to the train station, and to local buses. Parking is also available. Free, secure wi-fi is also available, however, it was a bit spotty in the upper floors.

The Mory House is a hidden gem among a plethora of mediocre guest houses in Southbourne, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Room Tip: If you are not a light sleeper, request room one. It is next to the breakfast room, but is a bright...

We have just returned home, after spending another week at Mory House Hotel. We had a fabulous week, from the moment we arrived we were again made to feel most welcome by Jane and Patrick. This lovely hotel is situated in an excellent location in a quiet road. The beach is in walking distance and shops close by. There is an excellent bus route, buses run very frequently to Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and surrounding areas. The rooms are very spacious and light, the beds are very comfortable. The whole place is exceptionally clean and decorated and furnished to a high standard. The breakfasts are delicious, such a wide range to choose from, we always have a Full English breakfast which Jane cooks fresh to perfection, which we like so much we have not tried the other things on the menu.....but they all sound lovely! Once again we found everything to be perfect and excellent value. As you can tell we cannot fault Mory House in any way. We would recommend this hotel to anyone, we are sure if you want Bed & Breakfast you will not do better than this hotel. We would like to thank Jane, Patrick and Wendy for another lovely stay. We look forward to seeing them and staying at Mory House again next year. Danny and Brenda

You will see from my last review that Mory House had very high standards and I am pleased to report that they have not let them slip. The rooms, although various sizes are all clean, well decorated and have lovely en suite bathrooms. The first floor room we stayed in this visit now has a decked balcony overlooking the garden. A perfect place to enjoy a read and a drink as the sun goes down. Will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We have just come back from a week at Mory House - this must be our 6th return trip - we love it! It truly feels like visiting friends now - Jane, Patrick & Wendy, ably assisted by Mollie & Harry, make us feel so welcome. They continue to maintain their very high standards in hospitality, cleanliness and decor not to mention the amazing breakfasts - my 11 year old son looks forward to Jane's pancakes every year! Friends we had made from the previous year at Mory House were also staying so the only concern we had was whether there would be enough pancakes! ( Jane came through of course!!) They also love staying here - we are all official Mory House groupies!!!
Mory House is a stones throw from beach and the squirrels at Fishermans Walk ( we fed them every morning with nuts from local pet shop). Southbourne is lovely and a good base for lots of local attractions, and on a regular bus route if you don't want to take the car

We were fortunate with the weather, but regardless, we would recommend Mory House absolutely as the place to stay - Thankyou guys!!!
