We haven't stayed in a B&B for years, so were a bit apprehensive about it. No need at all, what a really lovely guest house with hosts that made you feel so welcome. We phoned Faith the day before as we made a late decision to go down to Bournemouth for a few days and she very kindly accommodated us. The room and the bathroom was spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable and the décor in the room just right. We felt welcome straight away, with a cup of coffee in the lounge before being shown to our room. Breakfast was just right, and Faith and Martin's relaxed and friendly service gave a lovely ambience to the breakfast room, with a good choice of food on offer. The house itself is in a lovely position, yards from the sea front and in a very nice street. They had good local knowledge of the area. Not much else to say really except that this was a lovely relaxing two nights and we felt very welcomed and looked after. Thank you so much for making our short stay feel so special.

Room Tip: We had a top floor room which I think may have been slightly smaller, but still very comfortable.

Found by trawling the net, this b&b deserves the high praise it receives. Hosts are welcoming, helpful & efficient. And they know that little things mean a lot. This remarkably original but refurbished Edwardian house stands in an ideal position betwixt Christchurch & Bournemouth, within yards of the Southbourne cliff top, offering easy walks & sweeping views from the Isle of White to Swanage. Fisherman's Walk & the cliff lift to the beach & promenade are minutes away. A warm welcome will await you again at breakfast where a generous menu is offered to cater for all tastes. Worth knowing that the hosts take great pride in sourcing the best quality ingredients for their guests. Comfortable beds with good linen in clean, light, well furnished rooms of calm colours all combine to make this the place to stay. But keep it a secret!

Room Tip: Front rooms have the best sea views.

Dear LHR2MAN
Thank you for your 'secretive' TripAdvisor review, it makes Beach Lodge and the surrounding area sound very impressive - which we think it is (but don't worry we we won't tell anyone either).
Many Thanks
Martin and Faith

Just stumbled upon the Beach Lodge as we were looking for an accommodation in Bournemouth.
The location is just minutes away from Pokesdown station and LITERALLY 2 minutes from the sea front (if you're really slow).

The rooms were very nice and clean, and very comfortable for a very reasonable price.
And most importantly we felt very welcomed by Mr and Mrs Bean. They were very kind and very helpful with our special requirements (super early wake-up and breakfast!) and they even got us a lift to the station!!

We loved our stay and recommend the Beach Lodge to anyone looking for a charming B&B!

I can highly recommend this B&B. Martin and Faith allowed us access to our room in the morning (which was very helpful as we only had one day in Bournemouth) and immediately offered us a tea or coffee after our journey and a slice of cake was placed in our room which was a special touch.The room had a view of the sea and was so comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we have experienced, freshly cooked with a variety of additional food on offer such as a genuine fresh fruit salad. We shall definitely return and stay longer than the one night next time. Good luck for your 2014 season Martin and Faith ,but with your hard work and glowing reviews I am sure you will have many returning visitors and their friends and family

A lovely five day stay at the Beach Lodge. Our double and twin rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Martin and Faith work hard to ensure your stay is a pleasure. (Thank you for the lovely daily cakes!).
Top quality food makes for a hearty breakfast.........and very filling.
Thank you both once again and hope to you in the future.
