“Wish we could have stayed longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Originally we had hoped to stay for a few days, but it had to be cut short to just an overnight stay. However, Mike and Sue are perfect hosts and our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent. A quiet location just off the beach road. We would love to come back for a longer visit next year.

The Sunhaven is absolutely wonderful! Situated in Southbourne it's on a very quiet road a stone's throw from the beach. It's bright, airy, extremely clean and beautifully decorated. Mike and Sue are the perfect hosts they made us feel like family and it broke my heart to leave. Have already booked next years holiday - can't wait!

We have just got back from a two week stay at what is simply the best hotel/guest house ive ever stayed in. Mike and Sue make you feel at home from the second you arrive. It is spotlessly clean and so comfortable. The breakfasts are made to order and superb. The only down side is I can't mark it out of ten as it would be a definite ten from me. Can't wait till next year to do it all over again.

This Guest house is very clean, and has lovely fresh modern rooms. Great Beds. The owners Mike and Sue go out of there way to make you feel comfortable from the time you arrive. Good Breakfasts cooked to order. Brilliant location minuets from the lovely Southbourne beach, with Christchurch and Bournemouth on your door step. Highly Recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms Excellent

This was a return visit to this professionally run guest house, owned by Mike and Sue. We missed last year, due to a family commitment, but our family of twelve visiting the Bournemouth Air Show, were not to be disappointed. Our 'home' for five nights consisted of the same warm welcome we had many years ago, well decorated accommodation and the consistently acceptable breakfasts, cooked by Mike. This couple never change, whose sole intention in life is to make their residents comfortable and happy. Its location is ideal for cliff walks and a beach which is second to none. Local shops, restaurants and pubs are also within walking distance.

A friendly Sue welcomed us when we arrived, and showed us to our 'gorgeous' family room. It was wonderful! Very clean, comfortable, well decorated and furnished beautifully! Iv never slept in a more comfortable bed in a hotel. It really felt like a home from home. Breakfast in the morning was utterly delicious! Both Sue and Mike were so nice and helpful, and made our stay absolutely perfect! And for such a good price! You really couldn't ask for more! Thank you again, we will see you soon!
