“lovely bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

My wife and I spent 3 days in the beachside, no fault whatsoever, good breakfast and a homely welcome you would expect from a B&B, the room was cosy and had everything you needed plus a few nice little extras. location was ideal with a cheap and cheerful pub around the corner and the beach bars a little further down the road, we would stay there again if we visited the area, our thanks to Sheila for looking after us and giving out useful local info

My husband and I spent two nights here and would have liked longer. Very clean,beautifully decorated home, very welcoming, can not think of any way it could be improved. We stayed in the twin room, quite small but very well equipped, lovely bathroom, great to have a relaxing soak after a day sightseeing or walking. I have already recommended it to friends and family.

This was our first visit to Beachside and we can't recommend it highly enough. It's in a perfect location, just a 5 minute walk from the beautiful beach and within easy reach of Mudeford Quay and Christchurch town centre. Sheila was warm and welcoming and really made us feel at home. She was extremely helpful, giving us lots of local information and lent us a book on local walks. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for 4 nights in the double room which was large and spotlessly clean, with plenty of tea and coffee available. The en-suite shower room was a good size with an electric shower so there was always plenty of hot water. There was also an excellent supply of shower creams, shampoo, conditioner and soap. Breakfast was superb with a fantastic selection, including fresh fruit and home made yogurt which was delicious. We can particularly recommend the poached eggs, which Sheila cooked to perfection! We will definitely stay again the next time we come to Christchurch. It really was home from home and we can't wait to return.. Sue & Paul

Room Tip: We stayed in the double room but the twin room is also very nice.

A warm and relaxing welcome to a return visit made even nicer by the well fitted and comfortable accommodation complete with very good choices for breakfast. Location quiet and very close to the sea and central for visiting other places of interest in the area. It will not be last time we visit Beachside.

We stayed at the lovely Beachside B&B for one night in Sheilas double room! We were welcomed by a very friendly owner Sheila who took us through everything we needed to know and we were very impressed with the cleanliness, tidiness and great location of this B&B. For me cleanliness is very important and Sheilas B&B ticked all the boxes.
Breakfast was delicious. Home made yoghurt was great and I have officially had the best poached egg to date.
Very happy customers and would recommend this B&B in a flash! We will certainly stay at the B&B again if we visit the area again.
All the best Sheila-Ally & Andy

Room Tip: Double Room was really well equipped and thought out to a T! Anything you needed was there!

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...
