My wife and I brought my Mum here for a short break. We all loved it. A stunning location. The decor is stylish, yet homely. Ross was the perfect host - thank you!! A lovely breakfast. Simply perfect.

We stayed for just one night but Ross and the guys couldn't have been more welcoming or accomodating. We will certainly recommend it and plan to come back. The breakfast was delicious and the veiw from Room 2 spectacular. I did find the mattress a bit saggy but that's a minor point! The honesty bar, wifi and helpfulness were all... More

We stayed here again recently having also been here earlier in the year. The place is just great. We were in one of the seaview rooms with just the most brilliant view looking right out to sea and across to Poole harbour and beyond. We ate locally each day - couple of nice pubs nearby and a new restaurant in... More

Really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review; it was great to see you again. Glad that the view lived up to expectations : Room 1 and Room 2 have the best views (if you like the sea and the coastline, anyway!). Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Ross, Graham, David More

We came to Westcotes House with our bikes, kayaks, surfboards and all! - This b&b is unlike any other I've been to. For people like us, having off-road parking, a garage to store our bikes, kayaks and kit in combined with the flexibility of the owners to accommodate our needs was amazingly helpful. The inside accommodation was just as impressive... More

I enjoyed my stay so much last time, it was my first choice again when visiting the area. Other guests staying the hotel were also returning guests. You could not receive a warmer welcome here & I hope to return later in the year. The breakfasts are fantastic, made using local produce & just what is needed before a walk... More

Thank you for your kind review, we love it that people like yourself think of us first when travelling to the area - I know our location on the clifftop really helps make the choice easier, but its great to know that we are getting it right in the other areas too! Come again soon. Ross, Graham & David More
