We stayed one night in the first floor bedroom in this lovely little cottage by the sea. The bed was so comfy and I was asleep within seconds of my head touching the pillow. The ensuite had a really efficient shower with plenty of hot water. Christina served us a lovely breakfast in the little dining area.

Great holiday, three of us stayed while two did a carving course in Tout Quarry. Our hostess was warm and welcoming and gave us very good breakfasts to set us up for the day. Lovely bedroom, excellent convenient location for Chesil Beach and Portland and within walking distance of places to eat. Really interesting cottage, old and quaint. Also a... More

Christina is a very warm hostess who does a great breakfast. She only has two rooms so it's very friendly and welcoming, and the room we stayed in with our two dogs was lovely. Excellent walks nearby and a great spot to watch the sunset

Especially we liked the breakfasts, but everything else was good too. It was right on the beach with just the sea wall in between and we liked the area and the arty cafes and the sculputure and walking round the island

It's always a pleasure when people enjoy this querky and somewhat eccentric little cottage, thank you for your comments, and when you are next in the area look us up as it would be lovely to see you both again. More

This is our first time staying in a B&B (instead of hotels) and we had a great experience. The cottage has been charmingly renovated keeping the great character with two light airy rooms, one double and one king size - both of which we booked at the same time. Our host Christina was lovely and cooked a tasty full English... More

Do you know, I think the Girls expect an adoring teenager to appear downstairs every morning now....!!! So pleased your first foray into the bed and breakfast world was a successful one, and that you chose us. It can of course produce such diverse experiences as each b&b has it's own approach to the needs of the guest. I agree... More

We only stayed one night on Portland but were so glad that we chose this b&b, as this little cottage had so much character and charm. Our bedroom was very inviting, immaculately clean and comfortable and met all of our needs. The little breakfast room was really quaint with its array of paintings, ornaments and its lovely old clock. The... More

Relaxing long weekend away, Christina was a bubbly host, very knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast ranged from cereals/yoghurt/fruit up to full English if you are hungry enough! Home made bread was delicious. Double en-suite room was bright and clean, little extras like hot chocolate as well as tea and coffee greatly appreciated. Two adorable Golden Retrievers, had to drag my... More

I thought he was going to take Poppy with him.....! You caught me on a successful bread day, a little rustic to say the least but getting better at this kneading lark, not sure if it was up to Paul Hollywood's standards though. We all look forward to seeing you both again....have a great Summer. More

We had a lovely stay at Mariner's. The cosy cottage was just off the beach and close to 2 good pubs so a perfect location. Christina was very welcoming, full of tips and stories and cooked a mean poached egg! It was also great to find somewhere we could bring our dog, her dogs were very quiet and happy to... More

A thoroughly enjoyable experience here. The location is superb, right next to chesil beach. The cottage is very clean and parking is available directly outside (limited spaces). I stayed on the 1st floor in a double room with an en suite. The room and facilities were very clean. Breakfast is downstairs and a choice of cereals is on offer with... More

Sometimes the weather can be a problem I know...... :-) Just can't seem to get it organised for my guests, but even though it was a bit dreary for photography, I am pleased it didn't spoil your stay at Mariners Cottage.
