we stayed in this guest house whilst visiting our son who is a submariner in the navy, we had a fantastic warm welcome, Janet was a great host could not do enough for us with lots of knowledge of the area. All the rooms were spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Thanks... More

Janet and Ian do a wonderful job of making one feel at home which is what happened when my 13 year old sailing son and I experienced when we spent a week with them recently. Fabulous clean room high above the town with a well proportioned bathroom and good sized room for two beds. So helpful with our sailing gear... More

Turnstones (Ian and Janet) is an exceptional B&B. Very warm welcome, extremely comfortable rooms with great en-suite shower etc. Breakfasts great and so nice just feels like home. 5* in our opinion. Well worth a visit when in Weymouth or Portland.

Our recent stay at Turnstones B&B was not the first - this is our fourth year of coming to Janet and Ian's wonderful bed and breakfast. The en-suite rooms, either with sea view or garden view, are spotless, elegant and peaceful, with crisp clean linen and cosy beds. We always sleep well here. Janet and Ian are charming and helpful,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one-night stay at this tasteful and comfortable b and b. We were made to feel like guests, not customers. The bedroom and ensuite were spotless. The owners were helpful, friendly and accommodating, and they prepared a delicious breakfast. We would certainly return!

Thanks to excellent previous reviews, we chose Turnstones for a one night stay in Portland, and received a warm welcome from Janet and Ian. Our room was lovely and the thoughtful use of colours and textures made it not only stylish, but also comfortable and restful. We even had a surprise sea view from the bed no less, and watched...

We found Turnstones B&B on Tripadvisor and loved it. The house is a small Victorian three storey (Lots of steep and narrow stairs....Plan to leave most of your luggage in the car!!) home with three (I think) rooms. Our room was large, very clean, well appointed and had a nice view of Chesil Beach and the bay beyond it. The... More

Stayed here for a work conference and had a lovely time. Wish I could have stayed for leisure instead! Lovely cooked breakfast and great coffee. The room was much nicer than I was expecting considering other properties nearby for similar price. Beautiful view from my window. Owners were lovely and welcoming. Highly recommended and I would be back here like... More

Found this lovely B&B through Tripadvisor and everything said on the reviews is so true. A warm welcome received from Janet when we arrived and the third floor room was perfect with views of Chesil Beach. A choice of breakfast, cereal, cooked and fruit. Janet and Ian, and guests, are so friendly with all the information and tips you will... More

Friendly, thoughtful hosts, a pretty, immaculate three-storey Victorian house with stunning views, delightful bedrooms and Janet's fab breakfasts all add up to one of the best b&bs ever. We certainly hope to return.
