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.

An excellent place to stay

"Southernhay was a beautiful place to stay for a weekend break.My room was spotless and had everything I needed.A lovely bathroom,comfortable bed and plenty of storage space.My hosts were a very pleasant couple and the breakfast delicious. The house is also close to an interesting shopping area with a range of coffee shops and restaurants and is only 15 minutes walk to the beautiful coastal walks in this area. All in all it is everything I wanted as a keen walker."
