We were looking for somewhere to stay for one night at short notice, as our daughter had just produced our first grandchild and we were making an early visit. We were lucky enough to discover the Southern Breeze Lodge; a seven bedroomed guest house run by Mal and Fran.
New to the business, Mal and Fran bring a fresh enthusiasm and zeal for their hotel yet run the Southern Breeze Lodge with a professionalism that suggests years of experience. Guests are given a warm welcome and my wife and I both felt we had been treated like old friends.
The building has been given a complete makeover with all the rooms decorated to a high standard. I understand that the improvements are set to continue during the winter (2012/13).
The bedroom we occupied was relatively small but comfortable and stylishly decorated, containing all the essentials including a newly equipped en-suite shower room. The room, like the rest of the hotel, was spotlessly clean and the bed was particularly comfortable.
The best part for me was the breakfast. Options including a "Full English" and muffins with scrambled egg and smoked salmon and everything was freshly cooked using high quality produce. A specialist range of jams and preserves with fresh granary toast topped it off beautifully. I can honestly say that this was one of the best breakfasts I have eaten in any hotel.
I really would recommend the Southern Breeze Lodge to anyone looking for both long or short stays in Bournemouth. You will be assured a friendly welcome and a pleasant stay whether on holiday or on business.
