Hotel or B&B with body board facilities??

I am planning a weekend in Boyrnemouth wth my boyfriend i June who is a keen bodyboarder, last year we went stayed at the Ramada Encoure but had to sneek the bodyboard/wetsuit into the room to wash down in the shower. Can anyone reccoment a hotel or bed and breakfast that may have a drying room for wetsuits etc.

Apologies if this is a stupid question but I am not a boadyboarder and am booking the weekend as a suprise.

Don't know of anywhere myself, but you could do a google search for B&B's in the area and make enquiries through them. Lots of networking goes on between B&B/Guest Houses and someone may be able to help. I should imagine this might not be an uncommon question to ask B&B/Guest House proprietors in the Bournemouth area and many are likely to be used to dealing with wetsuits, boards and so on.

In my B&B days I was used to requests from guests asking me to dry walking boots and wet clothes if they had been out hillwalking in wet weather.

Not an endorsement of the place but as an example this place offers storage and drying


It may be worth looking at Boscombe rather than Bournemouth in searches a sthe proximity to the surf reef(again no endorsements there) has quite a few places touting for business on the back of it so they should be accomodating to the surfing/boarding community.
