Beachside Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 32 Christchurch B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2013

Visited Beachside yet again and received the usual very warm welcome, the rooms so welcoming and spotlessly clean and tidy. Sheila really does her very best to make everything absolutely perfect with her hospitality/standard of cooking . The standard of Beachside far exceeds any other B&B we have ever stayed in over the years and it will always be our No.1 choice when visiting the area.

Sheila welcomed us, and though we stayed just the one night, beachside was a home from home, bright, clean and warm. Sheila likes guests to select from the breakfast menu before retiring, a little quirky perhaps but nevertheless a hearty breakfast with excellent choice was served at 9 in the dining come sitting room where you could make youself at home should you wish with music, dvd and TV available. Thoroughly recommended.

Thanks so much for your Review. Selecting your Breakfast in advance, from a very comprehensive menu, enables us to give our Guests as much personal attention and choice as possible. We are more than happy to change any items in the morning, and cook to order, if asked. We we want you to be happy with your stay here and if this is what it takes - no problem !!!

We recently enjoyed a long weekend away at Beachside, and found it to be a very friendly and relaxing place to stay. The owner, Sheila, could not have been more welcoming, going out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed, and even providing us with tips on what to see in the surrounding area to help plan our days.

As well as a beautiful and spacious double room, we also had access to a 'guest lounge' where we found a microwave, fridge, TV with DVD player, and a selection of DVDs. I don't think we could have asked for more from our stay, but if we had, it would most likely have been provided upon request. Speaking of requests, guests are required to fill out a breakfast sheet, which takes into consideration the time you'd like breakfast to be served, and offers a great selection of food; all of which is home cooked (and delicious).

Simply put, you can expect first class service in a lovely house, situated in a great location, within walking distance of the best attractions. What makes it even better is the fact that although very close to tourist hot spots (2mins from the beach) it's also far enough away to make it the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

We thoroughly enjoyed a recent short break at Beachside. The weather was cold but the house cosy and Sheila warmly welcoming. The generous storage space in the bedroom and large breakfast room with fridge, sofa, television, books and DVDs available to guests would make this a good place for a longer break, only five minutes from a lovely beach.

One night stay at very short notice. Made very welcome by the owner and the room was comfortable and very well presented. En suite was a full bath with shower attachment with excellent decor/amenities. The property has a very appealing interior and has a bright and homely lounge for the use of guests. Breakfast cooked to order and of good quality. Off street parking available - important in this location and just a short stroll to Friars cliff beach and cafes.
Highly recommended.

We have just enjoyed a week at Beachside B & B. Room 1 met all our requirements, good shower, comfy bed, kettle and tea/coffee making facilities. Sheila made us welcome from the Saturday afternoon right through to the following Saturday we left - A perfect hostess. Breakfasts were more than adequate (especially the poached eggs).

Nothing was too much trouble. We may well return in the future. Sheila - Good luck for the future and thank you.

We spent two nights at Beachside, and it was lovely. The B&B is very well presented, and the room was spacious and had everything we needed. The breakfast was great, and Sheila made us feel very welcome. Excellent location, only a five minute walk from the beach and amenities. All in all a great place to stay, and will no doubt visit Beachside again.
