“Comfortable inn, nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

It is very well located, in a quiet residential area, within easy walking distance of the quay/beach. The rooms are a reasonable size, comfortable and thoughtfully furnished and equipped - we have stayed in more expensive places that did not work as well. The ensuite bathroom was on the small side but well laid out and organised to make up for this. Thoughtfulness is a recurring theme: from the plentiful in-room beverages and biscuits, to the "guide" to the area, to the the furnishings. Breakfast is taken in a spacious, sunny lounge and is to order and excellent. You have to preselect the time that you want breakfast - but that suits us very well. The only note of discord is the check in time, which in our case was 17:00 (we asked for an earlier check in but this was not possible). If you are arriving from afar in the afternoon, that's no porblem; but if arriving in the morning it can leave you a little stranded if the weather is inclement. We would definitely stay there again if the check in time suited our travel arrangements. It is also reasonably priced!

Room Tip: Clarify what the check-in time is as it can be late afternoon. The two rooms are very similar so the...

My partner and I recently stayed at Beachside. We wanted somewhere, near the beach that was clean and comfortable. We certainly found this here. Our room was large, bright, immaculately clean and Sheila obviously takes pride in her B & B.

If we come back to Christchurch we will certainly stay here. The breakfasts were freshly cooked, served in lovely room, which doubled as the guest lounge.

It's one of the best B & B's we've stayed in. Added to the fact that's in a peaceful location, 5 minutes walk from a beautiful beach, what more could you want, except to have the time to have stayed longer.

We have just returned from our stay at the Beach side b and b, after a weekend visiting our daughter. We would recommend this b and b to anyone. It was spotlessly clean, the room was spacious and comfortable. Plenty of tea and coffee, and biscuits provided, and the breakfast ( particularly the scrambled egg, best I have ever had, was delicious. Sheila was a perfect host, and we hope to go back in November, for our daughters graduation. Perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in the twin bedded room, this room didnt have a stand up shower, this wasnt a problem for...

Many thanks for your thoughts on Beachside. We have SO MANY Guests who love our pretty Twin Room with Bathroom and this is actually our most requested Room........it benefits from the evening sun and is also very quiet.
Our photos on the Internet clearly show there is no Shower. Our compromise this Autumn will be to install a Shower in this Room alongside the Bath so that should (hopefully) keep everybody happy !

Two words "Absolutely fabulous"- more words - comfortable, clean, cosy, friendly, restful, helpful, excellent breakfasts, quiet, peaceful and just right!
Felt like part of the family as we were welcomed to this excellent, well appointed B and B. Our host was very natural and so helpful. As a result we quickly found a great restaurant on the first night and then were told about some exciting walks in to Christchurch and beyond during our stay.
In our opinion you would have to go a long way to find a better B and B in the area.

We stayed at the Beachside B&B for two nights. We were warmly greeted as we arrived and Sheila made sure we knew where everything was and ensured we settled in quickly. The room was lovely and clean and had all the facilities you needed and more.....the little extras are really nice to see (choice of bath cream, cotton buds/wool, magazines, robes, slippers). The bed was so comfy, I never sleep through and I did both nights! There is no issue with parking, it is in a lovely quiet street and it is located in a brilliant place to get to the beach! Breakfast was great, lots of cereal choices, homemade yoghurt, fruit salad, cooked breakfast, toast and condiments....delicious! If you wanted, Sheila would be around to give you ideas about what to do in the day and the guide she provided in the room outlined places, prices and distance....brilliant! We couldn't ask for more from Beachside and loved our stay in Christchurch, we will be returning and wouldn't hesitate in returning here! Thanks Sheila!

We spent two nights over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend at Beachside - a welcome return visit after a stay last year. Situated in an attractive, very quiet residential area close to the beach, it's a very well presented bungalow. Beautifully decorated, very clean, with a lovely lounge area guests are welcome to use in the evening. Our en-suite bedroom was most comfortable with an excellent bathroom - great shower. Good provision of toiletries, plenty hooks and shelves, bathrobes and even slippers. Delicious breakfast, with good choice, and how civilized to have a toaster so guests can make their toast just when it suits them. So many extra thoughtful touches. Sheila is the perfect host - friendly and cheerful and we wholeheartedly recommend her delightful b & b.

We stayed at the Beachside B&B for only one night in May 2014.

The accommodation is very clean and about a ten minute walk to Avon Beach. The facilities include a guest lounge in which to relax and read / watch TV etc. There are only two guest rooms and the road has very little traffic, so noise is not a problem.

The lady owner is very friendly and welcoming and provides a very full and high quality breakfast selection, which is pre ordered in advance.

FREE parking and FREE WiFi are provided.

Unfortunately, the check in time (5PM) and check out time (10.30AM) are both rather restrictive, but the owner said she maybe slightly flexible on this if given advance notice.

Note that the twin bedded room currently comes with an ensuite WC, basin, bath and hose attachment for hair washing but the lady owner told us that a full shower facility will be added later in 2014.

The "Noisy Lobster" restaurant serves excellent food (especially for dinner) and is situated right on Avon Beach about fifteen minutes walk from the B&B and has great views across the bay to The Needles, IOW !

Overall, the Beachside B&B is a very nice and quiet place to stay.

Keith & Sunay

Room Tip: The double bedded room has better facilities (if available !)

Thank you for taking the time to Review Beachside and it's great to know that you enjoyed your stay here.
Check in/out is flexible given prior notice - the guideline times are given as experience tells us they seem to fit in with most Guests. We are happy to fit in with your plans given prior notice.
Many Guests like to have the Bath but we appreciate some Guests prefer a Shower and we will be upgrading this Room to provide both later in the year.
Looking forward to your next visit........
