Stayed here for one night with a friend at the end of September... poor quality for the price with an average breakfast in claustrophobic conditions within the dining area. Would not stay again and indeed found a far better quality and value B&B for the remainder of our weeks stay.

Response from Chris Griffith, Owner at Beds by the Beach
Responded 6 Apr 2020
Hello So glad you enjoyed watching Four in a Bed we had such a great time filming for a couple of weeks 10 years ago. I'm sorry you could not see through the editing of this show. We agree with you that we were made to look like we were under paying for no apparent reason. All our problems were edited out throughout the whole filming process. We were very shocked when we saw the show go out six months after filming. You do need to come and stay before you can write a Tripadvisor Review.

Over several years Bed&Breakfast by the beach has been like my second home. I absolutely love going there I go two or three times a year. Christine and John are the best host’s always making sure you have a great stay. It’s within walking distance from the beautiful beach and shops and a great chip shop.

Since finding this fabulous home from home, we have made this our regular go to bed and breakfast for our trips to the South Coast. Every conceivable comfort and detail is taken care of. Chris and John are amazing owners and provide just the perfect level of hosting to make our visits special. We have stayed in many hotels and b&bs over the years, no breakfast matches up to that of Bed & Breakfast by the Beach. Thank you John, just the perfect cup of tea and left to brew with precision timing! We hope everyone’s visits are as enjoyable as ours.

Rooms and service 10 out of 10. Chris and John have thought of everything. Breakfast omelettes are the best I have ever had. The cakes in the afternoon are a lovely touch. We have stayed 3 times now and look forward to staying again very soon .

We spent the weekend at Bed and Breakfast by the Beach a couple of weeks ago. We had a fabulous stay . We stayed in one of the smaller rooms- and it was just as comfortable as the large room 1. Chris and John are truly the best hosts, they think of everything possible to make your stay comfortable, cosy fabulous breakfast. Chris even bakes little cakes for guests to help themselves to. Fresh milk and bottled water is always kept in the fridge for you, The beds and bed linen is very comfortable. We thoroughly recommend staying here and we wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else. Also, the location is good for buses.
