B & B Bournemouth Welcome to Southernhay Guesthouse.......

Nelia and Darren offer you a warm welcome to our comfortable Bed and Breakfast Bournemouth. We are ideally situated in Westbourne, close to the centre of Bournemouth, at the head of Alum Chine ( a wooded ravine) leading down to the sea and miles of safe, award winning, sandy beaches.

Westbourne centre is a 3 minute walk away and has a variety of quality shops, bars and restaurants, catering for a range of tastes including Continental, Asian and Oriental. Also with numerous coffee shops. Bournemouth town centre is easily reached by car or the frequent bus services that pass through Westbourne or a nice strole along the beach front for the more active. Poole centre is also not too far away.

There is a large FREE CAR PARK and WiFi is also complimentary. Guests will have constant access with their own key.

Our comfortable bedrooms all have central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators. 5 rooms have en-suite shower rooms, with 1 single room having a private shower room situated along the corridor. There are tea/coffee making facilities, colour T.V. with freeview, hairdryers and full length mirrors in every room.

Breakfast is served daily and is included in the price. There is plenty to choose including a traditional English breakfast, fresh fruit, youghurt and cereals. Special dietary requirements can be catered for with prior notice.

Special rates for contractors and business people. Contact the B&B Bournemouth for room only rates. Unfortunately we cannot accept children under 6 years old.

Weekend break

"We emailed Darren back in August and right from the start the communication was fantastic, we turned up Saturday afternoon and shown to the room, we were then left to get ready for our family gathering and we said we maybe late back and we’re told not a problem come and go as you want. The breakfast next morning was just right and hit the spot.We would recommend this B and B to anyone and will definitely stay again, thank you Mr Mrs Maddocks"
