A good location in Poole harbour, but an otherwise very average b&b. The mattress we slept on, although we were told it was new, was unacceptable to have in a commercial bed and breakfast as it felt like sleeping on a wire cage. The duvet was a worn polyester quilt and there was no top-sheet. Gross. Breakfast was oily. The bacon was if it were deep fried. No juice, fruit, or cereal. Originally, we were going to stay two nights, but decided early on that there was better things to do with our time and money. When we said that we weren't going to stay another night because the bed was uncomfortable. The proprietor started ranting that they had never had any complaints - ever -and how we must be leaving because of the poor weather (overcast and windy) and that was just bad our bad luck (we were in Poole to go kitesurfing and the conditions were perfect). Followed by "what are you going to do? Go to all the other b&bs in Poole and ask to try their beds?". After much negotiation we did not have to pay for the second night. But they did charge us £5 extra for parking, for which we were previously told there would be no charge. Disgraceful.
