About Us

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

Nelia and Darren offer you a warm welcome to our comfortable Bed and Breakfast Bournemouth. We offer reasonably priced accommodation. 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 available for our guests and a comfortable patio area to relax. Guests will have constant access with their own key.

Our comfortable bedrooms all have central heating with thermostatically controlled radiators. 4 rooms have en-suite shower rooms, with 1 single and 1 twin basic sharing a 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.

A complimentary cooked breakfast is included in the price.

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.

Very well placed to do everything

"Southernhay Guest House has been taken over by the very welcoming Darren and Nelia.We stayed in room 7 which was very nice and shielded from direct sunlight so the room had a pleasant temperature during this barmy summer.The bed was firm but comfortable, lots of storage space, good size TV and nice clean bathroom.Breakfast was very good and Darren was very courteous in making sure our needs were met.The positioning of the guest house was very good.You are 300 yards from Westbourne which has lots of boutique shops, bars and the fabulous Chez Fred fish &chip shop which we would highly recommend.If you walk down West Cliff Road some 100 yards, yo can walk on to the shaded footpath that takes you (10 mins) to Alum Chine Beach.A really pleasant walk in the shade.From Alum Chine beach you can take the mini road train to Bournemouth Pier.Alternatively, you can go straight to Bournemouth or Sandbanks via buses every 30 mins or take a £7-£8 Taxi.We were really impressed with Southernhay will definitely stay there again"
