We just stayed for 8 days. Wonderful location. The room was alays peachy clean and had a lovely view of the garden, so we could see the foxes at night. The staff is very friendly and professional. Excellent breakfast. The real treat are Sandy and Bruce. They make you feel right at home. In total: the best B&B we ever stayed in.

Thank you sooooooo much Erika & Ulrich for your lovely revue. It was such a pleasure having you and we missed you so much when you left. But at least now you can ride on the 'right' side of the road!! Do take care of each other...Bruce & Sandy

This was our first stay on one of our annual visits to Bournemouth.Bruce and Sandy are a delightful couple and give every attention to the details which make their guests stay comfortable. Our room was beautifully clean and had a lovely view of the garden where we watched foxes and badgers feeding. The breakfasts were wonderful especially Sandy's Healthy breakfast.My husband recommends the Full English! The staff are friendly yet very professional. It was a memorable week and we look forwardto returning next year.

We have stayed at Fenn Lodge with Sandy & Bruce on many occasions and they manage to improve the experience.(There are fresh ideas every year) The breakfast is a wider choice than ever and we always get made to feel special. The room we stayed in was spotless and having access to a fridge is a big plus for me. Waking up to the smell of Fresh bread is also nice. Going the extra mile is not too strong a phrase! I cannot praise them highly enough.

We have stayed here before and will be back. Wonderful location but also quiet and peaceful. A lot of thought is given to those little extras that make it stand out - great guest lounge, guest fridge, microwave, herbal teas, special diets - a real home from home but with the service.

Sandy and Bruce gave us a very warm welcome and were kind, helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was very comfortable and it spotlessly clean when we arrived and was cleaned every morning. The whole hotel was spotless too. The dining room was a lovely big room. There was so much choice for breakfast, including Sandy's home made bread. It was nicely cooked and presented, We had a lovely week in one of the nicest B & B's we have stayed in and hope to stay there again in there future. Sandy and Bruce deserve all the accolades they get.

From booking the night, to the time we left, there was an individual personal touch that followed the whole experience. Bruce and Sandy know their stuff, easy and friendly to book, a welcome that is unrivalled, and all so personal. Our room was decorated, (our anniversary), now that is going the EXTRA mile. Sandy gave local information, and recommended restaurants, not by her, but by returning clientele - that is the way to do it. Breakfast was superb, not rushed, home-made bread. a fantastic all English. For my wife and myself, I cannot recommend Fenn Lodge and Bruce and Sandy enough. Great people, fantastic experience and even an email afterwards asking us if we had a safe journey home.. Thank you and we will definitely come back

A very clean & comfortable Hotel Sandy & Bruce are a lovely couple & that is just what you need when you go on Holiday alone. Breakfasts are Wonderful so much Choice & Sandys' Health Breakfast is certainly a Recommendation also her Home Made Bread still warm at Breakfast & a very nice Cream Tea when you arrive. Beds are very comfortable. So handy for the Beach & if you don't want to Walk back from the Beach there is a very Handy bus back that stops at the end of the Road. I certainly could not Fault Fenn Lodge & i would Recommend it to anybody. Also if you need a meal in the Evening there are plenty of Restaurants nearby in Westbourne. Its certainly home from home & have already booked for 2014 so i shall look forward to going again.
