A nice homely older property to stay at. Good comfortable room and facilities, nice bathroom with fluffy towels, soft fluffy dressing gowns provided, TV, tea tray. Our room was at the front so had a little late night traffic noise/car lights but otherwise very quiet,...More

It is not the same without you sitting at your table in the window at 8am every morning! Hopefully you have recovered from all your walking! Thank you for staying here and writing a review. It was lovely to meet you both.

We travel quite a distance to stay in this excellent B&B. We do so simply because it is unique in the way the owners manage to provide a first-rate service from the moment you arrive until your departure. Take a moment to have a look...More

Sending a cheesy response back to you - despite the hard work it is always worth it to welcome guests who are positive and appreciative! :) Thank you for your repeat custom, it means a lot.

About
Description
A unique vintage boutique award winning Bed and Breakfast and Vintage Cafe in Alum Chine, Bournemouth. The B&B has seven individually styled rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms. As a family run business we More specialise in providing a friendly, informal service tailored to requirements. Chef cooked breakfasts offer both a creative and traditional menu including vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options. We promise you, you will not find anywhere else like The Living Room in Bournemouth for value for money, quality food, its unpretentious quirky environment or the pleasurable experience. We are situated in undoubtedly the best part of Bournemouth - ten minutes' walk in between the glorious Alum Chine beach (accessed by the peaceful chines) as well as the boutique and independently run restaurants of Westbourne. As Bournemouth has been voted one of the happiest places to live in the UK we feel that we have no option but to pass on the infectious and rejuvenating vibes! Less
