Reviewed 4 December 2016 via mobile

Brilliant place to stay. We stayed two nights. Everything was perfect. Room, breakfast . Elizabeth and Noel couldn't have made us more welcome. It is minutes away from the beach at southbourne and shops, bars and restaurants all also a few minutes walk away. It will be our first choice when we return to the area.

Mal and Fran are wonderful, warm, friendly people. We were lucky enough to be the only people staying and were upgraded to a room on the top floor (6), not good for bags because of the number of stairs, but Malcolm helped take them up and down. The room had a sitting room with 2x2 seater lounges, very pleasant indeed...

Our fourth visit to Southern Breeze Lodge, this time with the new owners, Elizabeth and Noel, has resulted in yet another really good holiday. We wish to thank Elizabeth and Noel for their lovely breakfasts, the beautiful clean rooms and their willingness to help wherever possible.

We stayed 3 nights. The room was beautifully decorated, light and clean. Our on suite bathroom had both a bath and shower combined and was of a good size. The house is a beautiful victorian building retaining some original features. A wonderful selection for breakfast, I had the Large Dorset Full breakfast, loved the pork sausages. Additional tea/coffee and toast...

Do not be put off by the recent negative reviews - it saddens me that individuals have to write vindictive reviews which are clearly not based on fact. We had stayed at Southern Breeze Lodge under the previous owners and the rooms are just as before - clean, spacious, comfortable and well stocked with anything you might need. The breakfasts...

Initially it was a bit of a shock to find Fran & Malcolm were no longer the proprietors of the Southern breeze lodge, but to be honest our stay in August was very pleasurable. On arrival we were greeted by Liz (Libby) who offered to carry our bags to our room, which was very sweet, but not necessary but we...

Thank you for your kind comments. As you mention we are always happy to modify the cooking of an item to suit a guest's taste, even if your "well done" is a little too near burnt for Libby's liking. Joking aside, we look forward to seeing you next year and will try and remember the way you like your sausages....

My husband and myself have just returned from our 4th visit to SBL. This time my brother and sister in law visited too for the 1st time. The new owners are great hosts.

We really enjoyed our stay despite the earlier review - excellent breakfast - very good menu for breakfast! We intend going back next year! Our room was very clean and we found the new owners, Elizabeth & Noel, having only been there for a short time, most helpful and friendly - would highly recommend it!.
