“What a find !”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We have just spent three nights this past week end staying at the B& B.It was fantastic,The hosts Chris and John couldn't be more friendly and helpful ,they were so welcoming and accommodating.
As far as the breakfast was concerned,there was absolutely everything there you could possibly ask for and cooked to perfection.
We had fresh roses in our room each morning which I thought was a lovely touch ,these wonderful hosts have thought of all the little touches that even five star hotels couldn't compete with.
Roll on our next stay in Bournemouth we now wouldn't go anywhere else except this B& B,what a find ! Thank you Chris & John.

Room Tip: We had a front twin room ,there was a little traffic noise but not enough to wake or keep you awak...

From arriving to leaving, John and Christine have got this perfect. I went with my partner and wanted to escape for a weekend with no pressure. The location, Southbourne beach, the seagulls, the amazing garden with a giant hydrangea, the squirrels, the 6 star breakfast...Need I say more!!
I am now trying to get time off work in the Autumn for another long weekend break.
So amazing to see a couple loving what they are doing.

We spent 3 nights with Chris and John last week and had a lovely break. The room (room 3) was perfect with everything you could need included. Breakfast was excellent and the hosts friendliness was a lovely touch too - all too often people just take the money and give nothing back but that definitely isnt the case at this home. Fabulous location midway between Christchurch and Bournemouth with off-street parking but also just a few steps from the bus routes to both towns, allowing the "driver" to have an odd glass of vino. All in all, I couldnt fault it and nor could Mum - many thanks for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a great twin with walk-in shower en-suite

I loved everything about this place, great location to beach, shops, pubs and new forest. If you can't deside what to have for breakfast they have it all, every fresh fruit possible, cereal, cooked full English breakfast, freshly cooked waffles with various toppings, muffings, bacon/sausage sandwiches and lots of toast and any hot drinks/pure fruit juice. And that's not even mentioning the freshly made fruit smoothies, there was a different flavour every morning 10 out of 10. Ps you will not want to move out of there beds, so comfy... I want it!!!
Lovely people, lovely presented BnB would definately return and recommend. You will not be disappointed!!

We have visited this B&B twice now and my wife and i were very happy with our accommodation both times. John and Chris are fab people and they certainly know how to make you comfortable (the homemade rocky road definitely helped -yum!). The B&B is very clean, tidy and modern in a great location and just a stroll away from the beach. The breakfast is out of this world. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody. You will not be disappointed. Many thanks John & Chris for making our holiday truly wonderful :-) We will definitely be back soon.

I cant fault my experience staying with Chris & John. The rooms are excellent, the hospitality superb and the breakfasts are better than any 5 star hotel. I would recommend that anyone staying in Bournemouth should stay here Chris & John excel in everything they do. Best B & B I have ever stayed in. Thank you Chris & John for making my stay so lovely I will certainly be back

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent, clean and modern and all as good as each other
