We have stayed many times at the B&B by the beach and have always found it to be excellent in every way. All the rooms are stylish, spotless and very comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious with so much choice and the home made cakes left on landing daily are impossible to resist. What's not to like?

Plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits, fresh cakes etc. Breakfast was served in the conservatory which was beautifully decorated and light and just very pleasant.

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
