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... More

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... More

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... More

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. More

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... More

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. One feels utterly spoilt from arrival to departure !!! Superb comfort excellent breakfast and sublime treats are all the norm here. Location is excellent,... More

Another really wonderful stay at this great bed and breakfast. Chris and John gave us a lovely welcome, we felt like old friends. We had tea and cakes in the garden on arrival, before going upstairs to our room. We stayed in room no. 1, very comfortable, roomy and very nicely decorated. Nice comfortable bed too.
