Super friendly, helpful owners, with a smile on their face and do help out, to make you feel really at home! My previous visit to Bournemouth was not pleasant, when I stayed at a different guest house, but now I like Bournemouth and will visit again and stay at the Woodside

Many young members of our family come to see us annually throughout the year and as our home is very small, they stay at a nearby hotel/guest house. Although we know of other local hotels, unquestionably every time alike the children ask us to book them back into The Woodside, and I have just rebooked for the beginning of December for the fourth visit of this year.
The welcome is always very warm and consistently there is a warmth of manner offered by Hazel and Keith throughout the the children's visits. The hotel is immaculate and very,very, comfortable, and all the children as well as my husband and myself can recommend unreservedly The Woodside at Southbourne. Another bonus is that it is minutes from the sea and the street where the hotel is
leads straight to the seafront and is a very pleasant road. Down the other end of Southern Road, is Southbourne Grove, a bustling and good shopping high street, served by many good bus routes. It is all just so good.
The attention to detail and quality both from the superb ensuite bedrooms to the morning

Best B&B we have ever stayed in!. We booked room 6 which was a 'small double room'. It was infact much bigger than we were expecting and spotless!! Breakfast was freshly cooked and amazing-set us up for the entire day!! Cannot think of any negatives at all and we are looking forward to out next visit hopefully early next year. Thank you so much Keith and Hazel!! Don't normally write reviews but felt that we had to bring this excellent B&B to peoples attention-just hope it is not fully booked next time we want to stay!

Currently living in Spain I needed to return to the Bournemouth area and visit friends and relatives but wanting somewhere central and chilled out to stay. The Woodside is ideally situated for the beach and plenty of bars and café/restaurants all in easy reach. Keith and Hazel are excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for me. Room was superb, clean, lovely and comfortable, fresh towels every day and I even caught Hazel Hoovering the rooms on a Sunday. What a star!
Great choice of breakfast menu, plenty to eat and more than enough to set you up for the day. Looking forward to a return in the not too distant.

This was our 5th visit and it was excellent,as always.Hazel and Keith are great hosts,very friendly and nothing is too much bother( Keith even looked up the answer to a crossword clue for us).The whole place is spotless, Be warned you will need bigger clothes if you stay for a week as the "Full English" breakfast is huge.
The guesthouse is ideally placed for the beach and the shops, both are less than 5 minutes walk.,Bournemouth and Christchurch are a short car journey, or hop on the bus at end of the road.There are several cafes and resturants close by so you can stay local and have a great holiday

Hazel and Keith, I will thank you for your fantastic hospitality. From the first moment of my arrival I felt that this would be the right place to stay. I loved your full english breakfast, the beautiful rooms, your kindliness and your lively interests for your guests. I am sure that I will join youre Woodside on my next trip to Bournemouth.
best regards from Potsdam / Germany

Totally fantastic time. Great hospitality. Keith and Hazel make you very welcome nothing is any trouble. Breakfast sets you up for the day. We originally booked 3 nights but stayed an extra night. All the people that were staying when we were also couldn't fault this B&B. Foreign holidaymakers too.

Keith and Hazel. Thank you very much. We would recommend any of our friends to stay at Woodside if they wanted a break in Bournemouth area

We will be back
