Went by reviews on Trip Adviser and wasn't disappointed, excellent in every way. Room lovely and clean, breakfast to die for, owners very friendly and helpful - scrumptious cakes. Would return and highly recommend. Thank you.

There are no words to describe just how welcomed you feel by John and christine. A fantastic couple who have an outstanding B&B. You cannot fault this place in any respect. Every detail has been thoroughly thought about and delivered to the highest standard. From things as simple and tea/coffee in your room to freshly homemade cakes and cookies on...

Booked this b&b on reading reviews. Can't find any faults! Beds comfortable, pillows perfect. Bathrooms have everything you could need. Would definitely stay again. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. Huge choice of fresh fruit, juices and freshly cooked and served with humour!

This was our second visit to this wonderful B&B. We had no doubt that we would receive a warm welcome. Home made lemon cake on arrival made for a good start! We were able to get into our room before midday, allowing for plenty of time to be spent on the beautiful beach, just a short walk away. The room...

I first saw this B&B on TV when it won a 'Four in a Bed' award and was so impressed with what they had to offer decided that the next time we visited Bournemouth, instead of staying at the Norfolk Royale (as we had always done many tmes before) we would instead try this B&B. How glad we were that...

We stayed for one week at the B&B. Chris and John were already very helpful while we booked the stay. Once arrived, we felt like at home from the first moment. The breakfast was better than we could imagine (not to speak of the delicious muffins every day)! Chris and John are the perfect hosts - they offer much more...

Always a pleasure to meet with friends. John and Chris, you have worked so hard to make your B&B so successful... ands are still working so hard!! Everything is just so, it's chic, it's clean, it's filled with nice things, and with all those special touches that other hoteliers all miss or can't be bothered to do. Your guests do...

Lovely stay at Easter. In some ways more like a boutique hotel than a B&B but just better. Will stay again (assuming we can get in) when we next visit Southbourne. Thank you to John and Chris for your excellent breakfasts, kind attention and care. I wanted to stay in a hotel but this was so much better. Would recommend...
