I spent the weekend in Southbourne, near Bournemouth, for the May Bank Holiday weekend with a friend to visit another friend of ours. The owners were very friendly during the booking stage and enough information supplied about the arrival arrangements etc.
On arrival we were greeted by Patrick who was the face of the B&B as he was the only person we saw, as he also served breakfast. Patrick was friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
Now as I have mentioned breakfast.,,,, it was fantastic! You could order pretty much what you wanted and 2 days running my friend and I ordered the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, delicious!
The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. It was cleaned both days.
Location wise, for us, was perfect. The Southbourne "high street" was 5 minutes walk away and the beach the same distance in the opposite direction.
The only thing most B&B's/hotels provide that this B&B didn't were tissues in the room and as the room was such a high specification in the first place this was a little surprising.
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend this place, good quality accommodation, breakfast, location and service.
Thanks for a great stay!
Ground floor room is a very good twin room with ample space

Thank you for your kind review. I'm really glad that you, especially, liked our french toast & bacon! Apologies there weren't any tissues in your room as we do supply tissues usually - it must have been an oversight on my part!
