I stumbled across this B&B whilst looking for a weekend break. Where to begin? From the moment we booked, every care was taken by the hosts to ensure our stay was all we hoped for, from the benefit if their wisdom and knowledge of local restaurants, to little extras in our beautifully created room. This did not feel like staying...

We stayed at Westcotes House during the Bournemouth Air Show after getting they had a cancellation. Once we arrived we relieved a warm welcome and were shown our room just off the main hall way downstairs. The room was immaculately clean and well equipped. Being in a ground floor room off the main reception area there was some noise in...

What a great couple of nights. The hosts were, without a doubt, the nicest we have ever encountered. Nothing was too much trouble. The room (room 2) was lovely with a great view of the sea whilst lying in bed. The atmosphere in the house was calm and relaxing and the self-serve bar was a refreshing touch. The breakfast was...

Staff was extremely welcoming, thoughtful, helpful and warm. Breakfast was a real treat -- with lots of choices and any personalized preferences readily taken into account. Deck area was wonderful, especially with the unusual sunny weather that we enjoyed during my stay!! Thanks Ross and Graham for a wonderful stay!!

Having stayed for three nights at Westcotes House, I would recommend it to anyone heading to Bournemouth. The location is amazing as it's really rare to find a Bed and Breakfast establishment directly on the seafront in this area and it is wonderful to look out from the hotel and have nothing but sea and the coast stretching for miles....
