“A great B & B”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We are very happy to recommend Bed and Breakfast by the Beach. We stayed 4 days and in that time could not find fault with anything. Chris and John are most thoughtful and cheerful. Breakfasts are superb with a fantastic choice. My favourite was the fresh fruit and smoothies (different each morning) and the eggs benedict.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and homely with just about every comfort one could wish for (the jar of rocky road especially nice touch for me and there was even a gluten free alternative for my husband) and the attention to detail is immaculate. A lovely experience.

B&B by the beach sets a high standard and is one of the best we have stayed in. The owners are welcoming and obliging, they are clearly passionate about their business and the hotel trade. Our room was furnished and equipped to a high standard, everything had been thought of. Little touches like a fridge on the landing with fresh milk, rather than one of those annoying mini fridges rattling as it turns on and off in your room. Breakfast and the breakfast room make breakfast a delight. Superb choice of fruits, yogurts etc (even Vegemite for those of missing their Aussie food fix!) , followed by a multiple choice of cooked items. Peaceful location, near Christchurch and only 10 mins from centre of Bournemouth. Off road parking. Thoroughly recommended.

I booked the b&b for me my dad and his friend for two nights in October for short break away, WOW it beat our expectations of a B&B, John and Chris are fantastic hosts, so warm and welcoming, nothing is too much for them, The rooms are beautifully decorated and the en-suites are a great size, the breakfasts in the morning are amazing, we had fruit and yoghurt and then John and Chris make a wonderful hot breakfast. There is a beautiful breakfast room and a beautiful garden. We couldn't have asked for more on our trip away. We will most definitely be going back again in the Spring :)

This B&B is Fab if you like a home from home feel

Thank you John and Chris

To emphasise what other reviewers have said, this is a very special place to stay within a couple of minutes walk from the quiet and unspoilt beach of Southbourne. The service is consistently outstanding in every respect. John and Chris remember a guest's individual preferences and take and interest in their daily news. Breakfast is incredible - better than any 5 star hotel. Rooms are spotlessly clean, brightly decorated and modern with comfortable beds and quality linens. There is every amenity you could need including umbrella, torch & range of glasses for wine, water etc. Plus the fresh flowers throughout and yummy goodies on the hospitality tray. I particularly like that the rooms are serviced immediately when guests leave for the day so you don't come back around lunchtime to find your room still unmade as in many hotels. Overall, coming to stay feels like a second home. It is equally perfect for solo travel as well as for couples. This was my third visit within 3 months because staying here makes me want to spend all my leisure time in Bournemouth. Thank you John & Chris

We have now had our second trip back to this truly superior Bed & Breakfast,It did not disappoint us it is just like home from home,Chris & John are so welcoming & friendly .There are all the little touches in the rooms that make this place "Outstanding ," with fresh flowers in the bedroom each day ,as well as so many other little things,even a little umbrella popped in a drawer,Very thoughtful on a showery day..Lovely crisp white bedlinen, comfortable beds,spotlessly clean,,Fantastic choice of breakfasts you are truly spoilt for choice and not rushed or made to feel you are being a nuisance,Each request is served with a beaming smile from Chris or a bright and friendly quip from John !.
We had thought of buying our own little property by the sea ,but why do that when we have found such a truly fantastic haven ..Please visit here ,you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are furnished tastefully and always very quiet.

Just back from this lovely B & B. We cannot praise Chris and John enough. As other people have said the breakfasts are amazing and there are some lovely little touches - fresh flowers and home-baked treats!!. The attention to detail is absolutely first class.
It is a lovely area of the country and we will be going back.

My sister and I spent a very pleasant day and night at this B. & B. The rooms were very lovely and the breakfast in a sunny conservatory was delicious. The hosts are lovely people and very helpful with any questions we had for them. I highly recommend this location. Lois B.
