Even before you enter Mariner's Cottage you know that you are in for a treat. An abundance of petunias and murals painted on the walls make the cottage stand out from the rest. Christina and John are great hosts, always on hand for help and advice if you need it. The en suite room was charming, clean and neat with... More

I found this little gem by accident while surfing the net for something different! It was a surprise break for my wife's birthday and it certainly ticked all the boxes! Although we only had the small double room at the top of the cottage, it was very cosy and comfortable. Being 50 yards from the pebble beach the sound of... More

Having previously lived on Portland and also been on many different types of breaks and holidays, this one was refreshingly different. Thanks to the cottage and the personality of our host Christina, it was more like a home from home rather than a short break away. It was my wife's surprise Birthday treat and also our wedding Anniversary which was... More

A warm welcome to a wonderful cottage, so clean and cosy. The bedroom was delightful and the bed just so comfortable! We had the best night's sleep for ages!

This was a rare opportunity to escape as a couple + puppy without our daughter. We were made to feel very welcome and Florence the puppy was fussed over. Christina could not have been more helpful and friendly on every level and went out of her way to help us find good places to eat. She also has a delightful... More

What a busy time it has been, and that is why my reply has been so badly delayed. It was so good of you to take the time to put something in writing, and a real joy to have had you both stay. As we discussed when you were here, it is a real 'stress buster' being in this quiet... More

The Valentines Day Storm, couldn't have been worse on your arrival, storm force winds, heavy sea spray and then an obstacle course just to get in, which you took in your stride. Living 50ft from the sea wall is fabulous most of the time, but we do have our moments and you were here during one of the worst storms... More

Peter and I had a lovely Christmas break at Mariners Cottage. Christina was very charming and looked after us like old friends. Hope we can return before long. Our room was lovely and the breakfasts were top notch, and all withing a hop and skip to the lovely Chesil beach and coastal path.

It's so good to hear from you after your stay here over Christmas, and as fellow bed and breakfast owners I am really happy that you enjoyed your time here. My local butcher is chuffed that once again his produce has gone down a treat. By the way, you wouldn't have had to open the window to hear the sea... More

I'm not sure if I should let others in on this secret! A charming B&B within walking distance of dive kit unloading for Chesil Cove. Love the 'no shoes' rule and relaxed atmosphere. Glowing starts on the ceiling with the sea reflected through the window. Excellent breakfast and a lovely chat with our hostess and her very friendly dogs.

Oooops sorry about the 'no shoes' rule upstairs, that's the problem with having cream carpets in the bedrooms, but I do love them... and am so pleased you loved the glowing stars on the ceiling. The sea is so calm and clear today, viz will be fabulous. Hope you come back to see us when next diving this area, and... More
