The decor is very modern, stylish and fresh and the themed coloured rooms are tastefully kitted out. The views are stunning and it's a perfect...

I spent a week at Westcotes House, and found it superb in every respect. I stayed in the Pantone grey room, with magnificent views out over the bay, and all the small things - which make the big difference - were there. Ross and Graham were flexible over my need to have an early breakfast each day; they helped me...

Thanks once again to Ross, David and Graham. LOVE your scrambled eggs so much!! The modern décor still makes Westcotes the best place to stay in Bournemouth. Will definitely be back with our new dog in the summer for walks along that sandy beach.

I stumbled across this B&B whilst looking for a weekend break. Where to begin? From the moment we booked, every care was taken by the hosts to ensure our stay was all we hoped for, from the benefit if their wisdom and knowledge of local restaurants, to little extras in our beautifully created room. This did not feel like staying...

We stayed at Westcotes House during the Bournemouth Air Show after getting they had a cancellation. Once we arrived we relieved a warm welcome and were shown our room just off the main hall way downstairs. The room was immaculately clean and well equipped.

What a great couple of nights. The hosts were, without a doubt, the nicest we have ever encountered. Nothing was too much trouble. The room (room 2) was lovely with a great view of the sea whilst lying in bed. The atmosphere in the house was calm and relaxing and the self-serve bar was a refreshing touch. The breakfast was...
