We were made very welcome by Fran & Mal. Nothing was too much trouble, Room 5 was a lovely room.Spotless, and a lovely shower. Loved the nautical theme. Breakfast was great.Stayed for 2 nights and would stay there again.

Hotel quality of accommodation and breakfast with a homely welcome from Mal and Fran, who do everything they can to make your stay comfortable, It is their attention to detail and service that makes this an excellent B&B.

From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Malcolm & Fran, to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble. From helping with our bags to giving us a lift into Bournemouth for our sons graduation, Malcolm & Fran couldn't have done more for us. We stayed in room 5 at the top which was impeccably clean and spacious, and oh so quiet. Really comfy bed all all top class finishes and touches made the room extremely comfortable with a lovely en-suite shower room. Breakfast was fantastic and set us up for our journey home. Shame we only had 1 night but will definitely book again next time we are in the area. Thank you both
Terry & Bobbi

Room Tip: For a quiet room book a room on the top floor (as long as you can handle the stairs)

From the time we stepped out of the car, we received nothing but the most warm of welcomes from both Fran & Mal. The lodge is very clean, hospitable, and you feel very relaxed from the moment you arrive. First rate breakfast, we stayed in the king room as just sitting in the bay looking forward to the sea is great(better when the leaves are off the tree, says Fran & Mal). Would we go back most certainly. Near beach & shops, bars what more do you want.

We are delighted you both enjoyed your stay and loved it. We have put our heart and soul into Southern Breeze Lodge so it is lovely to wake up to reviews like this and guests really telling us they enjoyed their stay. After the storm the leaves are falling fast and what we call our sea glimpse is appearing fast. There is something special about relaxing in that bay window. I often find Fran there when she should be working. It was lovely to meet you both and hope we will see you again in the future.

This was our second visit and Fran and Mal greeted us like old friends. We stayed three nights. Our rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast menu caters for all needs including our daughter who requires a glutton free diet. Nothing was too much trouble. There are no parking problems and it is close to the beach and cliff top pathway. There are several good eating establishments with five minutes walk. We will definitely be back next year.

I came here with my girlfriend and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Definitely a great place to stay. The beach is 5 minutes away and breakfast is great! I can only recommend this cute bed and breakfast :)

Thank you to Fran and Mal for another great weekend at Southern Breeze - my 4th stay. Nothing is ever too much trouble and as I have always been given a different room each time I can confirm that they are all 5 star plus. The breakfast was absolutely delicious with so much choice that I wish I could stay a week to sample them all. How many home from homes would also change all the clocks in the room with a note to explain that BST was ending and that the clocks had been adjusted. The attention to detail at SBL is second to none and I cannot wait to return. Thank you so much to you both. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: They are all great but if you want a separate seating area, ask for the one at the top of the house.
