“The quality and friendliness continues.”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

This Bank Holiday weekend was our fourth visit to Beach Lodge and our first under the new ownership of Martin & Faith. More friendly hosts one could not ask for - and the quality and presentation is outstanding. We wish Martin & Faith much success in their new venture. The wi-fi facility is a very nice touch - good thinking !

Room Tip: We prefer the front rooms on the first floor as they offer an angled yet nevertheless good view towa...

We are so pleased you enjoyed your fourth stay at Beach Lodge and your first stay with us. It's a relief that we are heading in the right direction with our subtle improvements. The FREE wi-fi was an essential addition for us, so we are pleased you appreciate that too! Hope to see you again soon.

Martin and Faith are the perfect hosts! We arrived to a lovely welcome and Faith brought us coffee and cupcakes to our room as we unpacked. Our room was bright and airy and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts were lovely and we were asked every morning if we needed any extra toast/coffee etc. The house itself is beautiful and there is a guest lounge which again is bright and welcoming. Martin and Faith advised us of places to visit during the day and where to go for something to eat at night. The house is a 2 minute walk from the beach at one end of the avenue and the town is a 5 minute walk at the other end of the road so it is in a perfect location. We would have no hesitation in recommending Beach Lodge to anybody looking to stay in Dorset and we would love to and will most certainly stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Beach Lodge very much! it is a lovely guest house and Martin and Faith are really nice hosts. Nice rooms, excellent breakfast! In summer it might be even better because it is only a few stps away from the beach!

We could spend a few wonderful days in the Beach Lodge. This accommodation ist just great: big, really clean and beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and very pleasing and friendly hosts! The rooms are decorated with a lot of love. The breakfast and the selfmade muffins are yummy! We loved to stay in this beautiful area in Southbourne and it was nice to have a chat with the very helpful hosts!

A special weekend with school friends was enhanced by making new friends in Martin and Faith. Their guest house is lovely - decorated beautifully and very clean. I was made so welcome and the breakfasts were wonderful. I was especially impressed by the locally sourced bacon and sausages! The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. I was welcomed and felt very relaxed and safe - important when travelling on your own. It was hard to believe that they had only taken over so recently, as they were such good hosts. I would happily visit again - in fact I have promised to do so.

Room Tip: I booked the family room - an indulgence but I was having trouble with stairs and discussed the opti...

My fiancé and I stayed here for one night, we had a long four hour car journey and upon arrival was met by the owner who was very pleasant and made us feel very welcome. After being shown to our room(with a sea view) we were offered tea and coffee and homemade flapjack which was a lovely gesture. Room was a good size, warm and very clean. There was a variety of choice for breakfast and the full English was delicious. We really enjoyed our stay here thanks to the owners being so friendly and helpful and would highly recommend this B&B.
