“Wonderful first holiday for our 5 month old son”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We were apprehensive about where to take our 5 month old son on his first holiday but our concerns melted away when we arrived at the Beach Lodge. We were greeted with such warmth that we knew it would be a home from home for our stay.

Our room was comfy, spotless with a nice personal touch, everything had been thought of to make our stay that bit more special and heads above any other B&B we have stayed at.

Nothing was too much trouble for Martin and Faith and their knowledge of Bournemouth and the surrounding area helped us make the most of our stay.

What a wonderful first holiday for us all as a family and we will definitely be returning next year.

From the moment we met the Hosts, Faith & Martin, we felt at ease. Nothing was too much trouble, for example we asked Martin for some information regarding the local area and he went away and returned with a google map even though it was during a very busy period for him. Everything was exceptional the food, the room, cleanliness but above all the extra little touches which they provide (who could forget Faith's daily cake which we returned to in the room each evening).An outstanding b&b which we are looking forward to returning to in the near future.

What a lovely b&b, well deserving of its 4 star rating. The room was clean and welcoming and the beds very comfortable. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, without being overpowering. The breakfasts were fresh and tasty. Not everyone caters so well for vegetarians! Highly recommended as it is truly only a few yards away from the sea and the shops with a variety of restaurants just a short walk up Grand Avenue. We will definitely be going there again. Parking is also no problem. Even a small fridge was provided for my husband's medication. Nothing was too much trouble to ensure our comfort.

Room Tip: We had the twin room on the first floor with en suite shower. Nice and quiet as it is away from the...

We stayed here for three nights with our two children and mother, and we didn't want to leave. The hosts were lovely and made you feel at home from the start, we came back everyday, to the most moorish cake, which was a beautiful touch. Breakfast was fantastic with a varierty of items to choose from. Its location is right on the beach and surronding areas can easily be reached. We will definitely be returning to this A* establishment.
Thank you for a lovely stay!

Our family comprising my husband; our daughter (17); our son (15) and me had the most wonderful week at Beach Lodge 7th-14th August 2013. Everything was immaculately clean; the rooms were beautifully appointed; the breakfasts were out of this world and the proprietors were totally lovely. Every care had been taken to make our holiday comfortable and relaxing eg home-baked cake appeared in our room every afternoon! Martin and Faith were so friendly and talked to us every day even though, not surprisingly, they had a full house. This is an amazing guest house in every way and is so close to the beach and good shops. Perfect for us and we very much hope to return.

Good value and we also had 3 days of sun too! if you want a relaxing stay with great people in a spotless B&B with great breakfasts (and lovely homemade cake) book now!

Room Tip: book early!

Have just spent two nights as a family at beach lodge, first time in a b&b and the girls ( aged 10&7) loved it, preferring it to hotels, we did too! Such a lovely atmosphere, lovely welcome and delicious home made cakes left each day. Breakfast was a plenty and everything freshly cooked. Perfect location for a family with the beach just two minutes away at one end of the road and a little shopping hub the other with bakeries, deli's and a fab fish&chip shop to buy then eat on the beach at sunset. We couldn't have asked for such a perfect, peacefull and enjoyable two days, thankyou to faith and Martin.. Can't wait to return!
