We spent two nights at the Living Room after deciding for ages where we wanted to stay, and we definitely made the right choice. We were greeted warmly and shown to our room, offered recommendations for the area and made to feel instantly comfortable. Every staff member is warm and extremely helpful without being overbearing, which I think is a... More

It is a relief that we met your expectations after you spent a long time deciding to stay here! (It is also a relief to know I am not the only person who spends ages when I choose where to stay!!) We appreciated your warm approach too and you recommending us. Thank you. More

My friend and I had a lovely 2night stay here. The room was beautifully decorated and clean. It was a little hot on the first night so they kindly gave us a fan for the second night. The breakfasts were my favourite thing- absolutely delicious! And free tea and cakes throughout the day. We'll definitely be back!

Hands down the best b&b in the area. I have never stayed in such a fantastic bed and breakfast establishment before. The room was decor was spot on all of the attention to detail was perfect and little touches such as free cookies and brownies on the way up to the rooms rounded it all off nicely. The room was...

Being alone travelling on business can be nerve-racking in itself especially in an area I'm not familiar with. The staff here are so welcoming and friendly. This genuinely felt like a home away from home. A family run business and you really feel that as soon as you walk through the door. Lovely comfortable room....IMMACULATE in terms of cleanliness, breakfast... More

14 family members took over this guest house for last weekend as we were attending a family wedding in Bournemouth/Poole. Our rooms were very clean & tastefully modernised in this 1884 building.

Lovely clean B&B. The Living Room is in a brilliant location, not far from the beach or centre, good sized double room with fresh filtered water every day.

Winner of Bournemouth Tourism Guest Accommodation of the Year 2012 & 2013 as well as Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2012, 2013 & 2014. The B&B has seven spacious, individually styled rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms.

The AA Breakfast Award winning breakfasts offer delicious full cooked options from the classic to the more unusual like Ham Hock Hash, homemade granola and plenty of tasty vegetarian or gluten free options. We promise you, you will not find anywhere else like The Living Room in Bournemouth for value for money, quality food, its unpretentious quirky environment or the pleasurable experience. Our emphasis is on helping customers feel relaxed by offering comfortable beds, clean and well maintained rooms, amazing food and caring, attentive service. The experience is added to by us being situated in the undoubtedly best part of Bournemouth ten minutes' walk in between the glorious Alum Chine beach (accessed by the peaceful chines) as well as the boutique and independently run businesses of Westbourne. As Bournemouth has been voted one of the happiest places to live in the UK we feel that we have no option but to pass on the infectious and rejuvenating vibes! ... more   less
