Nice stay in Waterside. Rooms are nice, clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. The hosts Sheila and Paul are friendly and welcoming. We stayed there for 3 nights and the beds were so comfortable that we could really enjoyed a good sleep and be charged for the next day.

Very nice room, very clean, at night very quiet. We slept like baby's. Breakfast was good and well organised. We had a wonderful short break. It was nice coming back to Bournemouth after 37 years. We enjoyed it very much. Paul and Sheila: thank you!
