We wanted to spend a night in Poole on our return from a trip to France. This B&B was much better than many 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The welcome from the owners was genuine and warm, even though we arrived after 10pm. Fresh cake, and a nice cuppa awaited us on arrival in our room. The whole... More

Our two day stay here with our two dogs, was splendid. Not only was the room large, light and airy, everything you would expect in a top hotel was provided, from fresh milk in the fridge (not little plastic pots with longlife in them) to fluffy white bath robes. The spacious communal living area was at our disposal and when... More

Our room was at the front of the house and as set on a busy road thought traffic noise might be an issue, but it wasn't. Good quality bed and linen. Even a biscuit for the dog.

The place was beautiful in its modern design. The breakfast was amazing, especially the sausages. The owners were lovely to chat to and were warm and friendly. We are planning a trip to the area again next year so will definitely be revisiting.

Carol and Rob run a brilliant B & B. Rooms are luxurious, spotlessly clean and quiet. There is every facility you may need at your disposal in the room (fridge, ironing board, iron, bathroom extras). Guests have breakfast when it suits them and the menu offers wide choice, including catering for those with food intolerances. We have family living in... More
