Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2016

We really love the' Woodside' and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else, this was out third time. Super clean, fantastic breakfast and Hazel and Keith couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Always meet people staying at the 'Woodside' that have stayed their many times before.Top location, just a few 100 yards to the beach front and shops in the opposite direction about the same distance.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and quiet as well.

For over 10 years I have worked part-time in Bournemouth and stayed at the Woodside.
Keith and Hazel are always very welcoming, friendly and helpful with any special requests.
The hotel is a quarter of a mile from the seafront with its large sandy beach.
Parking is not a problem as there are four spaces in front of the hotel and plenty of safe parking on the road. For a meal out there is The Spyglass and Kettle and the Commodore both of which are nearby on the seafront. There are more restaurants in Southbourne - half a mile away and further afield in Christchurch and Bournemouth .
The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the beds, which were renewed a few years ago, are very comfortable.
The breakfast is excellent and the full english second to none.
The hotel decoration is maintained to a high standard, all facilities are kept in full working order and there is a nice guest lounge.
The Woodside is highly recommended as a base for exploring Bournemouth and the surrounding area.

Lovely place to stay in Bournemouth. No request was too much hassle. Hazel and Keith are wonderful hosts! Ideally situated close to the main street in Boscombe. Evening walks to the beach and along the promenade were a real treat!
