This Bed and Breakfast is really good. It has everything you could wish for. The convenient location for Boscombe beach, very nice rooms, delicious breakfasts and excellent service make it hard to beat.

This guest house was ideal for a two night stay. The owners could not have done more for us, very helpful. The room was adequate and the bed was comfortable. All was very clean. The breakfast can be tailored from the ingredients available. There is no doubt I will be back next season.

We stayed at Sandy bay guest house for a long Easter weekend break . Graham and Sharon who run the guest house are great hosts and very friendly, our room was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was very nice too. I would definitely recommend their guesthouse to anyone staying in or around Bournemouth.

Stayed for one night in the single room, it was clean and comfortable with a detached private bathroom. A nice full English breakfast was included making the stay good value for money. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating with information on hand for business or leisure visits.

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.

We had a lovely stay at this B&B. Howard and Sharon were very welcoming and friendly and made our stay memorable. It is only a short walk to the wide sandy beach and attractions. It is also close to the shops. There is a great choice of independent, coffee shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. We are looking forward to when...

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.
