We stayed for 2 nights, first time ever in a B&B - was very impressed, Carol was extremely helpful and the room was spotless, shower perfect, and the breakfast was better than any I have had in a 4 * hotel, cooked to order, fabulous fresh grapefruit segments, range of cereals, proper toast, and a great way to start the...

We stayed for just one night (to catch the ferry to Cherbourg the following morning). The bed was pure luxury and I didn't want to get out! All food is either organic or homemade - Carol gave us a piece of her carrot cake on arrival - fabulous. And even her own jam for breakfast. And not forgetting the very... More

This B&B was really top notch in all areas. Carol and Rob are so friendly and welcoming. The food was of excellent choice and quality and very well presented. Our room was of a high standard, well appointed and clean. Nothing was too much bother for Carol and she was eager to please our needs. Breakfast times were easy going... More

We stayed at the White House B&B last July. I had spoken to Carol and mentioned this little holiday was for our anniversary. We were delighted when we walked into our spacious, clean, modern room and saw a bottle of wine and chocolate-covered strawberries! Carol and Rob were very hospitable and friendly and we fell in love with their cats... More

This is a very nice B&B, and as you walk up the meticulously designed garden path to enter you know you're somewhere a little different to your standard B&B. The rooms were lovely and modern, fresh and clean and yet still cosy in feel. The home made biscuits were a lovely touch on entering the room, and it all just... More

It always amazes me that one can stay in a B&B where the owners make you feel like you're putting them out by being there. Not a bit of it at the White House, Carol was the most friendly hostess I've ever encountered. The design of the house (a most inspiring contemporary affair) is such that the guests have a... More

This is a real gem, we stayed for a night whilst visiting Monkey World in Dorset. This B&B is state of the Art modern, conveniently located on a housing estate on the edge of the town and the rooms are contemporary, individually designed and clean. The house has clearly been a labour of love for the owners who welcomed us... More

I was in Poole on business and needed a reasonable place to stay. Not liking the look of any of the hotels, I opted for a B&B after reading the reviews here I thought this was fantastic. Firstly, it was a little further away from Poole than I anticipated, it was about a tenner taxi ride from the main train... More
