John and Christine, the hosts, have taken a great deal of care to ensure that this B&B ticks all of the boxes. The room is beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the conservatory was a joy. Just minutes from a gorgeous beach, this is a lovely spot. One to which we will surely return. John and Christine were welcoming,...

A very fancy-pants and rich American hotel chain owner recently described luxury as "about the little things...a smile or a personal greeting...a pillowcase that doesn't irritate your skin..,, good soap or soft towels". On that basis this B&B has luxury in abundance.In fact it is rather like a training school for prospective B&B owners. I wonder how many B&B owners...

From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to have a good stay. Hosts John & Chris are so friendly, we were greeted by John on the drive and offered help with luggage etc. Then Chris showed us to our room which was room number one kingsize with en-suite. Our room was lovely and cosy and spotlessly clean...

A repeat visit and we now only consider B&B by the Beach for a stay in the Bournemouth/ Christchurch area. Always a warm welcome to their home and business from the owners. The rooms have all the comforts you need, and extras like fresh milk on hand, cakes and access to a fridge. Breakfast beats any others I've had, even...

A fantastic hotel, with comfy beds and fantastic staff! I was made to feel so welcome during my stay! The breakfast is fantastic, with so much choice and very tasty! Fab location literally a stones throw away from the beach, and a two minute walk and your in the centre of town! Next time I come back I am going...

We stayed for one night last Friday -what a lovely place and Chris and John were fantastic hosts. Chris baked her own cakes and bread, John was very chatty and the our room was spotless.There was lots of little extras including the delicious home made cakes. The only little negative was that we couldn't work out how to get the...

Thank you for your lovely review and we are glad you enjoyed your short visit to see your daughter. Sorry about the shower the Miro Sport Showers are very powerful and there is a short delay while the temperature adjusts to your required setting. We look forward to seeing you again on your next university visit.

This was my second stay here, the first one being a year and a half ago. I'm delighted to report that the extremely high standards have not only been maintained but have actually improved. (The ability to borrow bikes was new since my last visit for example.) Everything has already been said in other reviews - a wonderful welcome, brilliant...

A return visit for us to this gem of a place to stay - more boutique hotel than B&B. Welcomed again by John and Chris who's warmth and friendliness make one feel like an old friend.
