The Westby Guest House
Excellent, clean, spacious, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast and great customer service

We stayed for 2 nights in the family room, two adults and two children aged 16 and 13. This is a fantastic space with separate rooms and a really comfortable double bed and bunks. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and fresh. Tea and coffee in the room. Breakfasts - choice of Full English; vegetarian or meat or continental pastries - delicious. Duncan is an excellent host, attentive and friendly and doing a great job of complying to Covid. An easy 10 min walk to Boscombe Pier.
Welcoming, comfortable and environmentally friendly

I have stayed at the Westby several times in the last 18 months while I visit an elderly relative in a nearby care home. I'm always made welcome, the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is lovely and the Westby is well situated for the town centre shops, beaches and public transport.
Yet again another great stay.
