Great food, made to feel very welcome for the 2 days we have just stayed. Clean rooms with good decor, great location to walk to the beach and an extra stride down the front into Bournemouth. Would definately recommend.

From an excellent breakfast menu to the laid back atmosphere, it really was a cool place to stay. Everyone made us feel welcome, it was like we were stopping with friends...and theres not many place that play I Am Kloot at breakfast. Highly recommend.

We spent an excellent couple of days at the Living Room. Anna and Andy, and their team couldn't have been any more welcoming. We used their family room, which had a separate room for the Children, including a tv which was a revelation to them!! The breakfast was great and huge! The whole house has a very welcoming, family feel...

Very enjoyable stay in September, breakfast was very tasty and offered different choices. Bedroom was of a nautical theme, and bathroom was very clean and modern. The location was very easy to walk into main Bourmemouth, and in Westbourne lots of places to eat.

We visited the area to visit my sister and her daughter. The Living Room was ideal as my sister lives three doors away! Lovely room and the staff were helpful and welcoming. Quiet location which is important for us. Breakfasts were delicious. Lovely walk to the beach! Would definitely stay there again.

This B&B is clean and comfortable beds. The room and bathroom were rather small but nevertheless comfortable. The location is quite nice, near the Alum chine. The charming atmosphere of this B&B and the sympathetic staff really made our weekend abroad extra nice. These people know how to run a B&B!

We stayed at the Living Room for a total of two nights, one before our trip to Jersey and one after. We requested a quiet room and that is exactly what we got. The accommodation ticked all the boxes for a one night stay being small but containing everything required. The dining room for breakfast doubles as a cafe during...

We were visiting Bournemouth for a wedding and our family were staying at a large national hotel. We decided to look for something more personal and came across The Living Room, so glad we did. The room was lovely, comfortable, large and well equipped. The coffee shop was great; good coffee and cakes and the breakfast was substantial and really...

The B&B has seven spacious, individually styled rooms with modern en-suite bathrooms.

The AA Breakfast Award winning breakfasts offer delicious full cooked options from the classic to the more unusual like Ham Hock Hash, homemade granola and plenty of tasty vegetarian or gluten free options. We promise you, you will not find anywhere else like The Living Room in Bournemouth for value for money, quality food, its unpretentious quirky environment or the pleasurable experience. Our emphasis is on helping customers feel relaxed by offering comfortable beds, clean and well maintained rooms, amazing food and caring, attentive service. The experience is added to by us being situated in the undoubtedly best part of Bournemouth ten minutes' walk in between the glorious Alum Chine beach (accessed by the peaceful chines) as well as the boutique and independently run businesses of Westbourne. As Bournemouth has been voted one of the happiest places to live in the UK we feel that we have no option but to pass on the infectious and rejuvenating vibes! ... more   less
