Turnstones is definitely the best holiday accommodation in Portland. Its a beautiful home, very well decorated and finished- clean, comfortable and tasteful. Well located just a few minutes walk from the beach and right next to a store. Wonderful owners who are very helpful and talkative but not overbearing. Breakfast and general overall service is wonderful.

Janet & Ian made us feel very welcome from the start, just what one needs after a long drive. The B&B has been nicely decorated and furbished, is very clean and breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. Portland is a great place, with good coastal walks and we enjoyed walking through the various quarry nature reserves. A good variety of... More

Had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Janet and Ian made us feel most welcome. The accommodation was superb, and the breakfast was excellent. The surrounding area provides beautiful scenery, coastal walks and easy to access for travelling onwards. Would most definitely return in the near future!

Turnstones is a great place to stay. Janet and Ian gave us a very warm welcome and were extremely helpful. Their house is very stylish and comfortable; our room at the back had a lovely view over the very pretty private garden and was very well appointed. Breakfast was delicious. We hope to return.

Immaculate room with great facilities and a sea view to top it off. Also holds the title for the best cooked breakfast I've ever had in a B&B! Janet and Ian were very friendly and catered well for my stay. I would highly recommend Turnstones to anyone.
