This place is a hidden gem, a total find. My family and I always stay in high end hotels and this was our first venture into guest house land a few years ago but it had come highly recommended by a colleague. We were pleased back then we had given it a go and even more so now. On our first visit not so long after landlady Yvonne bought it you could see she was trying to turn the place around and busy refurb'ing etc and we still enjoyed a fabulous stay and thought she had the place looking pretty good back then! This time round it was just wonderful to go back and see the utter transformation. She is pretty much finished her decorating and the place is just adorable. Beautiful white beach feel interior with lovely pastel shades and seaside bits and pieces giving it a nautical feel. She remembered us and made us feel so welcome we felt like returning friends. Such a nice touch and you really did feel it was authentic. Because we had our children with us this time she went out of her way to spoil them rotten! She recommended some fabulous restaurants in town, we were looking for high end and she didn't disappoint. Storm Fish was a total find. We also ate at Da Vinci's which was wonderful and she recommended the most beautiful Terrace Bar establishment overlooking the whole of Sandbanks and the harbour for my husband and I to go for a romantic drink on our 2nd night whilst she (wait for it) BABYSAT!!! The woman is a trooper! Breakfast was terrific, her teenage daughter is adorable serving brekky with her mum with a smile! I highly recommend this place.
