Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights at Beach Lodge for the second year running and could not have faulted it if we'd tried! We stayed in the Silver Birch room again and it was immaculately spotless. Faith and Martin are exceptional hosts who really go the extra mile for their guests. Perfectly placed for the beach and shops and for trips around the area, it is so lovely and we wished we could have stayed longer! The breakfasts are delicious, as are Faith's cakes! We can't wait to return next year!

We spent four nights at Beach Lodge last week and had a wonderful, happy time throughout. My husband, our teenage children and I love this place and, also, the owners! It is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are delicious. It takes fewer than five minutes to walk to the zig-zag path to the beach at Southbourne. There is also a cliff lift if you are heavily laden or not very mobile. There is a long parade of shops within a few minutes of walking inland from the B&B. The beach and sea are clean: I swallowed a lot of sea water with no ill effects.There are also plenty of places nearby if you are looking for an evening meal. We have stayed at beach Lodge for two consecutive years and most certainly hope to return!

My husband and I stayed at the Beach Lodge for two nights, whilst we were in Bournemouth for a wedding. From the minute we walked in we were very well looked after, with tea, cake and biscuits - and this continued all through our stay. Breakfast was fab. Spotlessly clean room. Personal touches everywhere. Martin and Faith are very warm hosts. We will be back! Celine and Theo x

....... that this is an exceptionally well run b&b in an ideal location. (And each stayed on separate occasions. So no collusion!) Each arrival has been met with an enthusiastic welcome and has continued with a willingness to provide for the wellbeing of guests. "Off piste" requests have been met with efficiency from the easygoing hosts who are clearly well organised and are also happy to pass on the experiences of others with regards to local attractions and dining in the area. The houses in Grand Avenue are grand and this is one of the grandest! Rooms are fastidiously maintained and a rolling programme of updating ensures that facilities meet expectations. Oh, and the Blue Flag beach of Southbourne is literally a couple of minutes away.
So it looks like that's a recommendation then!

Room Tip: Front rooms for sea view and sun in the mornings.

We booked out the whole B&B for my parents 60th Wedding anniversary - stayed for 4 nights. Fantastic B&B - Faith and Martin know how to serve without being intrusive - spotless rooms, lovely breakfasts and great location. Faith and Martin were flexible to our needs and provided great local advice over breakfast. Would definitely stay again if in the area. Thanks for making our parents 60th one to remember!!

Dear Mike
Thank you for writing us a 5 star Tripadvisor review. We really enjoyed having your family group take over the whole of Beach Lodge, it was great to see all of you enjoying the house and the local area. We are so pleased you loved it and maybe we will see you again one day when you are over from Australia.
Cheers

We stayed for 4 nights as a group of 11 family members celebrating our parent's Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Having the whole place to ourselves was lovely. Faith and Martin are the perfect hosts. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable and we cannot think of anything that could have made them any better. Breakfast was amazing! The location was great, with places to eat and drink within a short walk which our parents could manage easily despite their mobility issues.
We will definitely be back, I have been looking at the weekend of the Airshow but not surprisingly you are fully booked. I will make a note for next year as I could not bear to come to Bournemouth and not stay at Beach Lodge - sure to be disappointed with anywhere else.
Keep up the good work, your obvious devotion to this place is going to keep your bookings book very busy for years to come!

We stayed at the B&B for 7 days and had an excellent experience as always!. Martin and Faith are very welcoming and goes an extra mile to ensure that we are made at home. The room we stayed in was spotless. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast, our son still talks about the best hot chocolate, pancake and wonderful cakes that he had !.

There is also a wonderful shopping area where you can try out a variety of food! Most of all the quiet sandy beach is only 2 mins away.
