Homely, friendly and good breakfasts. Numerous members of our family have stayed here over the last five years and they have always been made to feel welcome. Good position for beach, town centre and Westbourne. Ground floor bedroom available and parking.

The owner is a very nice bloke but the hotel is a dive, it was so old fashioned, it was like walking back into the 1960's, the room was very smelly and the shower door was so small, if you was a larger person then there is no way you could fit through it and the shower kept breaking every...

We have been visiting the Southernhay for a few years. We love Tom and Lyn and the way they make you feel really welcome but at the same time give you your own space. The B&B is located near to Westbourne which has a good range of restaurants, is a short walk to the beach through Alum Chine and is...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Southernhay B&B. I had just been on a long haul flight and really appreciated the very comfortable bed. I was visiting family in Westbourne so the location was ideal. And to walk in to Bournemouth only took me 20 mins. The breakfast was amazing EVERY morning, thank you. And a huge thank you...

Really great location, close to some lovely restaurants and shops. It's also walking distance to the beach. We walked from the beach to Bournemouth and it was an easy pleasant trip. Tom was very welcoming and friendly, he had some good recommendations for the local area. The entrance is a difficult turn, as it's on a bit of a blind...

Good location as close to Westbourne amenities and a 15 minute stroll through lovely Alum Chine to the beach. Ample car parking and very nice twin room with tea and coffee making facilities, sink and TV. Added to this was a very good breakfast which makes this an extremely good value for money guest house. The beds were a little...

The B&B is easy to find, a lot of restaurants only 5 minute walk, easy to get around by nearby bus stops. Plenty of parking too. Lovely owners, Lynn & Tom helped us plan our short stay with they're knowledge of the area. The rooms are clean and comfy with plenty of space. The breakfast is brilliant, with thick crispy...

I stayed here for 3 weeks as i was on a course in Poole and it was a lovely ltlle B&B. I only met Tom but he was a genuinly nice guy. He made me feel at home but also did not overwhelm me. The room was very clean and spacious with an en suite. The only problem was my...

I can not speak highly enough of the hospitality afforded us by Lynn and Tom who run the Southernhay B & B. We had a great week's holiday made even better by the fab breakfast so beautifuly cooked and presented by them both (though you really should try Tom's scrambled eggs!). Seriously, this is a great place to stay for...
