Spent 3 very enjoyable nights at Bed & Breakfast by the Beach. Room: Bright, modern and spotlessly clean. Well decorated. Everything you could dream of provided. Location: A quiet residential road, a very easy walk to the coast and convenient for walks around Hengistbury Head and along the promenade all the way to Bournemouth. Breakfast: A bright inviting conservatory with...

We stayed three nights with John and Chris and felt very much at home in their lovely home. Our room was fabulous - beautifully decorated with lots of thoughtful touches.We particularly liked the fact that there was fresh milk provided (we hate those little plastic things) together with lovely home made cake, every day! Breakfast was delicious. We would recommend...

For us this was a last minute decision to visit Christchurch and enjoy the beach walks on a blustery weekend in March. We came upon B&B by the Beach through Trip Advisor and with such great reviews we were wondering if it could possibly be as good. If you are wondering the same then wonder no more, this has to...

Have wanted to come here for years having seen John and Chris on Four in a Bed and finally did. Lovely place, lovely people and just as expected. A lovely room with everything you could possibly need and more. Extremely comfortable bed and an amazing breakfast. Even a card for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Very thoughtful. Would recommend

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...
