We only stayed in Our Living Room for two nights in late March ... not enough time to get to know the owner Andy and his team but we were so very happy to be there. My grandfather has lived in Westbourne for 30 years and I know the area well. I am recommending this place to my whole family...

Hi, Thank you for leaving a review, I hope your onward journey went well! I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the smell you mentioned, we actually discovered a minor plumbing issue which we had fixed straight away that has sorted the problem. Really hope to see you again soon!

We stayed for only one night on a brief trip to the area, but were made to feel very welcome by Andy who opened the door to us and made us a well needed pot of tea. The interior of the sitting / dining room is very tasteful and different to many dated B & Bs that you find. Our...

My husband and I were in this hotel during the Easter holidays (4 days) and we were very happy for choosing this B&B. Everybody is very friendly, the space is nice and warm, the bed is comfortable and the breakfast is yummy. The hot breakfast is cooked after you order, so expect to spend a while waiting, but it's worth...

This review is for the restaurant not the B&B This is a great place. Quirky and with real charm, the character of the owner really shines through. It's welcoming and easy going, very relaxed (so don't go if you're in a rush!). Food is delicious and unusual with a Stateside feel (the chef worked in Canada) - amazing pancakes and...

Large friendly B&B with boutique-like hotel atmosphere. £45 for single use of twin en-suite on second floor. Hard to fault. Gave the impression of being newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable. Only minor point was that room was a bit chilly in the morning during a very cold spell and hot water took some time to come through but...

Please note: This is a review for the coffee lounge NOT the B&B. The Living Room is a B&B in Alum Chine, but their dining room is open to non-residents for coffee, brunch, lunch and cakes. I visited twice this weekend and thought it was lovely! The owners have tried hard to make the coffee lounge look like a real...
