“Can I give it six instead of five out of five?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

We have stayed at Chris & John's wonderful B&B several times & I can honestly say this is the best B&B / hotel experience we have ever had! There is always a lovely greeting on arrival & the rooms are all fantastically appointed. Yes we've stayed in them all. Nothing is too much trouble & the breakfasts are out of this world. We have been known to move our holiday dates in order to stay there rather than go to another B&B. Thank you both again for looking after us & we hope to see you very soon.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

We have been visiting Bournemouth for a number of years and stayed in various different hotels and B&B's. Since finding Bed & Breakfast by the Beach last year we have since stayed on four different occasions and it is the only place we will stay in Bournemouth.

Chris and John are the most convivial and kind hosts you could ever wish to meet.

The rooms are lovely and the breakfast is the best we have ever had (including when comparing against five star hotels around the world.)

I cannot recommend this highly enough.

My wife and i have just returned from a stay here celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and all we can say is we will definitely be coming back. John and Chris were fantastic hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived on there doorstep.
The room we stayed in was beautifully furnished very clean and had everything you required.
The new conservatory is fab and we really enjoyed the smoothies and my wife especially enjoyed the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs both mornings.
The choice of fresh food is superb
The first evening we wanted to try a local restaurant and John gave us some advice regarding some local ones.
We opted to go to the Larderhouse in Southbourne about 5 mins in a Taxi as the weather was poor , we thoroughly enjoyed the food there.
The only downside of the weekend was the weather that meant we didn't get an opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the lovely garden.
All in all an excellent B&B the best we have stayed in.
Book it!!

Had a 2 day stay (mid-week) at B&B by the Beach ...... just felt we needed a break - batteries had run down and needed a recharge .... we are just so pleased we stayed with Chris & John. Amazing "Welcome" when we arrived, Beautiful accommodation (really up to date and clean, with all the facilities in the room of a 5* hotel), Breakfast was really fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and the eggs benedict .... well, best ever had!! 2 minutes from the beach - what more could you want ............ Total Bliss ......... went home refreshed and raring to go. Thanks Chris and John, we will be back!!

I stayed at this B&B for the second time and this time it was even better than the first. This time I was there with some friends and we had a great time even though it rained for the whole weekend (typical British mini-break).
There is a new breakfast room which is really charming and as always the owners were great.
Breakfast was delicious and the smoothies were amazing (saved us from our hangovers).
Another great stay at this fab little B&B.

I went for a weekend away with my friend and we had a great time staying here and will definitely come back next time. John and chris made us feel very welcome and at home. The breakfast was delicious and I would recommend any one visiting bournemouth to stay here as its a great price and provides great service. Thanks John and Chris!

Clean and friendly - one of the best B&B's I have stayed at. My fiancee and I went to celebrate our engagement and John and Chris were more than accommodating. I couldn't fault the breakfast which was fresh and delicious, we had the most romantic break, so glad we didn't go abroad.
