This review is for the restaurant not the B&B This is a great place. Quirky and with real charm, the character of the owner really shines through. It's welcoming and easy going, very relaxed (so don't go if you're in a rush!). Food is delicious and unusual with a Stateside feel (the chef worked in Canada) - amazing pancakes and...

Me and my wife stayed here at the weekend with our three little ones (8, 3 and 18 months). We stayed in the Living Room's family suite which has a main bedroom and then a conjoining room for the kids. The room was brilliant value for money, was very comfortable and perfect for a family stay. We loved the feel...

Large friendly B&B with boutique-like hotel atmosphere. £45 for single use of twin en-suite on second floor. Hard to fault. Gave the impression of being newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable. Only minor point was that room was a bit chilly in the morning during a very cold spell and hot water took some time to come through but...

I arrived at the Living room to be greeted by Andy, he was very welcoming and offered to carry my case to the room. The room itself was very clean and nicely decorated, the walk in shower had a beautiful waterfall type head. The bed was very comfortable indeed and I had a great sleep. The location is just outside...

Please note: This is a review for the coffee lounge NOT the B&B. The Living Room is a B&B in Alum Chine, but their dining room is open to non-residents for coffee, brunch, lunch and cakes. I visited twice this weekend and thought it was lovely! The owners have tried hard to make the coffee lounge look like a real...

We stayed in the twin room here in mid-November. The room was a good size with comfortable beds. The bathroom was huge with a really nice shower. Breakfast was great, everyone was super friendly. Great location with easy parking.

Spent one night at this wonderful B&B. Hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. This is a lovely property and our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The shower room was quite small with just the shower and loo while the handbasin was in the room itself - this doesn't bother me but may be an issue for...

We stayed 3 nights at The Living Room in early November. The room was lovely and the breakfasts wonderful. The actual dining room of The Living Room is a homely, large, quirkily furnished (but brilliant) room which doubles as a tea house for non-residents. The place is a true gem, with extremely friendly, welcoming owners. Highly, highly recommended . ....

My husband, two young children and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for two nights over half-term. The kids were thrilled with our family room, including the "secret" room they found for themselves (complete with toddler bed, twin bed and their own television). It looked like a closet door at first, but turned out to be a small alcove just...

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.
