Highly recommended after our short visit hoping to return soon. What a great place to visit something for everyone and loved quirky shops great cocktails and food venues and interesting landmarks to wander around and view. Nothing too much trouble so welcoming. The room was ideal immaculately clean fresh and modern well appointed perfect location. Quiet and warm even had on site parking. So accommodating with a choice of breakfast options we had vouchers one day and plumped for Kelly’s which was ample and delicious the staff were excellent. On the last day we had continental at the b & b delicious scrabbled eggs and much more included just what we needed pre journey home. The location was perfect as town 5 mins away Louise shared her knowledge of the area which came in handy thank you as we even managed that brief visit to the beach and I had a paddle too before we headed off home. Lovely people beautiful extended weekend away fantastic area looking forward to staying again. Thank you both from Yvonne and John

I was just staying in the area for a couple of days and stumbled upon this little treasure. The Host, Louise, was lovely, only saw her a couple of times but she let me know if i needed anything her know. the room was immaculately clean, tidy and had everything you needed. had a good sleep, the glazing is excellent considering its on a main road, hardly heard a thing. Breakfast was a voucher to a local cafe (i used cuckoos) which was amazing ! in the area there was a lovely quayside, riverside walks, a good town centre with everything you need. the internet in the guest house was really good quality. i spent a day working from the room and the interent had great speeds and i was able to work peacefully and without interuption for the day. the price is really low for the quality of stay, the perfect definition of value for money. overall this is a golden little nugget in a lovely town. If i'm ever in the area again, i'll be coming back.

My brother and I visited 3 years ago almost to the day. Covid and a personal illness prevented us from returning sooner. This time we took our mum with us. We received a lovely welcome from Louise, ditched the car and went off for the day. Our room (same as last time ) was spotless, comfortable and well appointed. My main memory from our previous visit was Marks superb breakfast, but Covid meant that the owners have had to adapt and so you get a choice of continental or a voucher for one of two cafes in Christchurch. We chose Kelly's, which turned out to be a good choice. We had the continental breakfast on day 2 before leaving and we were provided with more than enough quality food prior to our journey home. The three of us had a very enjoyable stay (again) and repeating what I said on my 2019 review I would not hesitate in recommending this lovely guest house. Regards and best wishes Mike Chris and Betty.

We had a very peaceful relaxing safe stay, in a spotlessly clean room, with very smart decor, Louise and Mark were perfect hosts, very helpful and welcoming, easy to find, and parking, lovely short walk into town for tasty food. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Louise was extremely welcoming and helpful and made me feel quite at home. I spent two quiet and comfortable nights here and would definitely come back. The location Is a convenient short walk from the High Street, there is free parking on site, and everything possible has been done to respect social distancing and hygiene requirements while covid rules prevail. The contactless check in and out worked perfectly smoothly and Louise checked to make sure I had everything I needed including extra blankets. A surprise of mince pies appeared with a little poinsettia, to accompany the tea/coffee facility in the room. Absolutely everything I needed was at hand and I would recommend this guest house for visitors to pretty Christchurch…

Myself and 2 friends stayed the night in the family room which was fresh and modern and comfortable and spotlessly clean. Louise was very welcoming and friendly. Ideally located just a 5 minute walk to the town. I would definitely stay here again.

Wasn't disappointed , location was excellent within walking distance of Town/Restaurants and Harbour. Also seemed to be lots of buses around to visit other areas within walking distance. We were really pleased with how clean everywhere was in the Room and areas we passed through. Cannot comment about the breakfast as were given vouchers to use in a couple of Cafes - we used Kelly's which was ok and of a good size, served nice and hot which is important. Cannot really say anymore as never really saw anybody, only briefly Louise who checked everything was ok, and did we need anything. I would recommend this B & B from our experience.

Once again an excellent stay. We are a large group and Louise and her team couldn't do enough for us. Rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated and have everything you can need. Location is perfect and we all had a lovely mini-break. Looking forward to coming back as soon as we can.
