Just as others have said the Woodside is the place to stay near the seafront in Southbourne. Our room was spotlessly clean and welcoming and the en suite bathroom had been carefully designed to make best use of the space. The whole house was in a good state of decoration and was obviously well looked after.
Our breakfast was atractively presented and not at all greasy or dried out as it had been freshly cooked to order, Hazel and Keith clearly make it their priority to do all they can to make their guests' stay a good experience - and they suceed!
We were there just overnight but would certainly recommend it to families or couples wanting to stay in the area, the cliff top and seaside is a short walk along the road, the shops and restaurants at Sourhbourne Grove a short walk in the opposite direction.
