Lovely reception when walking very welcomed, room was basic but very nice, good selection for breakfast, only downside was you could hear the room next to us go to the toilet, and it would of been nice to have a lampshade for each side of the bed to read.

A comfortable stay. Family weekend @ Sailing Academy. Its a basic B&B, clean and tidy. Very helpful owners with local information and looked after the boys sailing kit. Breakfast lovely. Local pubs either side, both serving great food but advised to book, a close restaurant and taxi co. if you wanted to go further. Great location backing on to Chisel... More

Really nice place, nice owner, great pub up the road, I would highly recommend. Just to note its not walking distance to Weymouth. It's quiet, scenic and windy on Portland but a truly great place. Also great fish and chip shop up the road.

Stayed here for two nights because it is very close to Portland Docks. Had a lovely stay. The rooms were clean and tidy. The bed was comfy. The shower was effective. Tea and coffee in the rooms was adequate (alas, still no tea pot!). Breakfast was adequate - freshly cooked for us, and tasty - but nothing amazing. Help yourself... More

Good, clean and comfortable rooms. Stayed for 3 nights choice of breakfast is very good. Owner is very polite and knowledgable. Had a few drinks at the Cove Inn though it seems at peak times you need to book well in advance for a meal. We ate at the Little Ship pub just down the road excellent value for money,... More

If you ever wondered about the awesome Portland stone used to build some of the great landmarks of Britain, this is where it comes from! Located at the large aggregate end of Chesil Beach, this is a great starting point for trips up and down the coast. We were looking for something on or close to Chesil Beach and this... More

Stayed for 4 nights and loved it, as a woman on her own I felt safe and not out of place. Was a bit worried I was the only guest at first, then realised the other guests got up much earlier than me. The cooked breakfast was good, advice on where to visit was much appreciated. Nothing was too much... More

We found this B&B ideal for a long weekend. The room was large, clean and airy, with a double bed and bunk beds. Shower & WC en-suite. Owners very friendly and happy to accommodate my partner's dietary needs. Not the biggest of cooked breakfasts but more than adequate and plentiful cereals, coffee, toast etc. Great location with the beach about... More

We stayed at the Beach house for one night. Our hosts were extremely helpful. No quibbles about serving breakfast for us early on the Sunday morning, helped dry sailing gear for us and even posted back my daughter's phone charger that she had left in her room. I admit I was a bit put off from the outside, and the... More

From the outside it looks like a bit of a dodgy one man show, and it really is, but the welcome was very warming and the rooms were cute and full of character. We only stayed here one night just to see what Portland was like, and were given some handy tips from the owner of places to see. Driving... More
