We stayed just for one night yesterday at Sandy Bay Guest House. Lovely friendly couple and the cutest well behaved dog. Spotlessly clean and warm. Delicious cooked breakfast. Would definitely recommend. Central to Boscombe, just a bus ride into Bournemouth.

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. This guest house offer very good value for money and is close to everything. We would certainly recommend it for short...

Really pleased to find The Sandy Bay Guesthouse, On arrival we received a warm welcome from Howard and little Milo, very comfortable quiet rooms, great cooked breakfast. Proved to be the ideal base for the short nostalgia trip I planned for my parents. Thanks Howard, you were a star! Hope to visit again in the spring.

This was a surprise weekend away. Normal we don't do Guest Houses as we chase the waves in our surf bus. But it was my birthday. Very welcoming hosts, lovely clean and spacious room with onsuite and very nice full English each morning. Central location, within walking distance to Boscombe town and seafront/beaches and not a bad walk into Bournemouth.

Sleep is always my priority and I slept really well. The room was cosy and quiet with my own shower and toilet. Howard was very thoughtful, making me feel at home as soon as I arrived, and Milo, the dog, was on his cutest behaviour. A very enjoyable stay, highly recommended.
