April with the Waterside B&B in Bournemouth

April in Bournemouth

Well the days are finally becoming longer and the sunshine is coming and when it does the whole place regains it’s wonderfullness, which is not a word but does feel right to me!.

We are really looking forward to seeing those familiar faces again this summer along with new ones to enjoy both The Waterside B&B and more importantly themselves here in our Bournemouth.

Just to let you know the Commodore has a new manager and the place has a new buzz and before I giveyou anymore information I really need to go there a few more times to check him out for you. (The sacrifices I make 🙂  )
