We arrived on the day the b&b was changing hands. If David hadn't told us we would never of known! What a lovely clean place to stay. We were very happy with everything, apart from the disappointing weather! All those beautiful weekends before our break, it literally rained the whole time we were there! This didn't stop us enjoying ourselves,... More

I’ve stayed here with 3 friends every September for the past 5 years.

Breakfast was excellent, the room spotless with an extremely comfortable bed. It must have been OK... More

Since the management changed recently and we stayed at the Southbourne Villa this weekend I thought I would give an update on the Villa.

Our first time away as husband and wife for our first anniversary and couldn't have picked a better place. Clean, quiet and friendly, not too far from town. We wish the new owners all the best in their new venture and will definitely be back again next year xx

When I first rang David, I knew we had chosen well. He was so accommodating. This is a wonderful property in a great location. The rooms and lounges are immaculately clean. Edna serves a delicious full English breakfast. We used the outdoor hot tub which was relaxing on their beautiful terrace. We highly recommend this property. It was a short... More
