Such an amazing location, wandered down to the beach every morning; literally just around the corner! A beautiful house and gorgeous en suite rooms. Kath and Ian are really welcoming and constantly go above and beyond. Massively recommended!

This was great. A combination of a really friendly host, good food, comfortable surroundings and bike storage in a locked shed were brilliant. The bonuses were that they dropped us into town and even took one of our party to a bike shop to sort out repairs.

Quietly located adjacent to Alum Chine this traditional guesthouse is immaculate, friendly 100yds from the beach (dog friendly towards the west, child friendly in the east). The esplanade stretches for miles and the walk to the pier is 15+ minutes but flat. Great breakfast choices with gluten free and vegetarian catered for. En-suite rooms with TV, very soft beds. I...

My Wife booked the Fircliff Hotel in Alum Chine near Bournemouth based on advice from Tripadvisor. The Fircliff is well placed and just short walk from the Durley Chine Beach. We were greeted and showed straight to our room, which was clean, tidy and well presented. In fact the whole guesthouse/hotel was tastefully decorated and had a very welcoming atmosphere....

We have just got back from our third stay at the Fircliff, and will be going again as soon as we can. We visit Bournemouth on a regular basis and love to stay at the Westbourne end, we discovered the Fircliff when the place we used to stay closed. Kath keeps it immaculately clean and beautifully decorated, for a B&B...
