    The fact I've stayed here 10 or 11 times in the past year is testament to how wonderful this B&B really is. It's a 5 min walk from a superb sandy beach, has shops and restaurants nearby and you are hosted by the fun and glamorous Chris and John. Chris is short for Christine, just in case you were wondering ;) Oh, and I forgot to say, the food is divine too!

    Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous!

    Stayed at this beautiful B&B after working in the area and needed somewhere to stay overnight, the room was extremely well decorated, the bed was soft, the bathroom was clean and all your teas and coffees were catered for in the room. slept like a baby!! in the Morning breakfast was exceptional and i was greeted by the owner Chris, she was cheerful and informative about the area, her breakfast was very very very good with lots of choice. i was made to feel welcome and would not hesitate to book there again.

    This B & B is fantastic. It is easily the standard of a five star hotel, with the rooms having quality fittings and extra touches galore. The position is great being five minutes walk from Southbourne beach which is at the quieter end of Bournemouth. The couple who run it are charming, very attentive without being overpowering and the breakfast choice was amazing, all from local produce. We will definitely be going baack.

    Room Tip: There are only four rooms - some have a full bathroom with separate shower, some just a shower.

    A lovely B&B run by a friendly and welcoming couple. The room was well equipped and very comfortable with some lovely extras. John and Chris were very helpful in giving advice on where to visit and were even kind enough to drop us to a local area for an evening meal.

    The breakfast was delicious and had so much to choose from it really did set you up for the day.

    Even though we only stayed for one night we felt very welcome and will definitely return.

    Stop your search and book here, you will not be disappointed!
