I first saw this B&B on TV when it won a 'Four in a Bed' award and was so impressed with what they had to offer decided that the next time we visited Bournemouth, instead of staying at the Norfolk Royale (as we had always done many tmes before) we would instead try this B&B. How glad we were that...

We stayed for one week at the B&B. Chris and John were already very helpful while we booked the stay. Once arrived, we felt like at home from the first moment. The breakfast was better than we could imagine (not to speak of the delicious muffins every day)! Chris and John are the perfect hosts - they offer much more...

Chris & John B&B is just beautiful, breakfasts great, welcome great, lovely cakes and treats simply the best B&B we've stayed in THANK YOU! We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory/breakfast space watching the garden growing whilst indulging in the scrummy dorset breakfast/eggs benadict.

Always a pleasure to meet with friends. John and Chris, you have worked so hard to make your B&B so successful... ands are still working so hard!! Everything is just so, it's chic, it's clean, it's filled with nice things, and with all those special touches that other hoteliers all miss or can't be bothered to do. Your guests do...

Lovely stay at Easter. In some ways more like a boutique hotel than a B&B but just better. Will stay again (assuming we can get in) when we next visit Southbourne. Thank you to John and Chris for your excellent breakfasts, kind attention and care. I wanted to stay in a hotel but this was so much better. Would recommend...

I was thoroughly bowled over by the quality and dedication to detail of the experience at B&B by the Beach in Bournemouth. The place is spotless, the rooms large and very comfortable and the breakfast, superb. I can't remember seeing a "Specials Board" in a B&B before, but thoroughly enjoyed the kippers, the fresh fruit and the delightful banter of...

We had another first class experience at Chris and John's home. If you want clean and stylish accommodation, with lots of very thoughtful extras, together with a wonderful breakfast, then this is the place for you. The accommodation is more like that of a quality, small boutique hotel, and cannot fail to please. Husband and wife team, Chris and John,...

Just returned from a one night stay and I want to go back already. As said by many others, this place deserves to be number one B and B. The bed is sooo comfortable and lots of little touches that you certainly do not get in any hotel let alone bed and breakfasts. The breakfast was outstanding, the choice was...
