Everything was faultless-everything!!!You will find cheaper,you will find more expensive but you will not find better,nicer, more relaxing,or better value for the money,than you will here! I am very hard to please,but this b/b and its hosts really are exceptional and deserve all the brilliant reviews they get.So if you want really really good for a really good price,go here,you will not be sorry.The L`assiette restaurant Chris and John recommended was as equally excellent as the b/b.We will definately return in the summer if we can get a booking!!!

Room Tip: We had a choice,but it wouldn`t have mattered because they were all excellent!.

I stumbled across B&B by the Beach by chance on the Internet and am so glad I did, we had a great one night stay. We booked last minute - lunchtime on a Saturday- to stay that night, so had to take the only room they had left which was their twin room facing the street but there was no noise and we slept well. The room was well appointed and immaculately clean. The owners are friendly and attentive and have a real eye for detail. It is a home from home. Breakfast scores a 10/10 for me and sitting in their conservatory on a sunny Sunday morning was very relaxing, I didn't want to leave!

Our stay at B and B by the Beach was excellent, immaculate room and bed linen, flat-screen TV and many extras provided. The hosts, John and Chris, were the perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism. Breakfast is served in a beautiful conservatory. Breakfast with cold buffet and made to order hot choices was well-presented and delicious. I don't usually write such glowing reviews but this establishment deserves the praise.

Room Tip: Our room was a twin, very well-appointed. It faced the street but very quiet, no street noise. Bel...

A friend and I stayed there for a weekend in late March.
Previous reviews have all highlighted the the things why you would choose the place _ impeccable service, friendly hosts, fantastic breakfast (hot meal of your choice, organic marmalade, smoothies etc), a lovely beach nearby _ so I'd focus on a few reasons why you might want to stay elsewhere.
BB by the beach is a great place to stay if you have a car. Car-less, you have to use buses which are not always reliable because the place is quite far away from Bournemouth itself. The solution we found was hiring bikes from B's central pier and cycling.
The area is very sleepy so if you're looking for a place with nightlife or places to eat nearby, you'd probably be better off elsewhere.
I suppose this lovely b&b should be great in summer time when Bournemouth beaches are overcrowded.
I'm definitely staying here if I ever come back to Bournemouth - but next time I'm going to make sure I have a car or a bike.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights during our trip from New Zealand and were delighted with the very warm reception from John and Chris - our room (Room 2) was perfect with very comfortable bed, excellent heating and a very modern bathroom - all spotlessly clean.
Breakfasts were exceptional with many options all included in tariff. Very good parking, very quiet and outstanding value for money. Easy stroll to beach and supermarket and quick drive to the delightful town of Christchurch. Would be very happy to stay again and would highly recommend it. John recommends the nearby L'Assiette restaurant which we tried - we had an outstanding meal there!

Just returned from an all too brief return trip to B&BBTB. So wonderful to take a friend and feel confident that we will get a super greeting, comfy clean well kitted out room and divine breakfast, now in their new breakfast conservatory which is just plain lovely!
John and Chris are superb at their job, and never make you feel like it is just a job. You know they genuinely love people staying with them and enjoying their superior product.
Forget the big hotels, forget the other B&B's, I'm back there again in 2 weeks to show it off to another friend. Bed and Breakfast by the Beach is the ONLY place i would stay when visiting Bournemouth and surroundings.
