What a charming little B&B.
Lets start by saying I haven't been in a b&b since I was little, and this was just so great! Pulled up and parking right out the front. Rang door bell and greeted by a lovely chap who invited us in, explained all about our stay and gave us recommendations for the locality.
We chucked our stuff in the room and headed out into Poole! After all isn't that B&Bs are for?
The room was so clean and at the back of the house. Nice little bathroom, with a shower that is hot and got lots of pressure.
Went to recommended pub in the evening, lovely pub, with pub grub.
Breakfast... right... well! I wasn't paying attention when asked if I wanted the full English and so said yes! I felt sooo guilty as it really was "FULL" English.... so ended up with a whole fried egg that must have gone in the bin .. So you will not go hungry.
All in all a lovely traditional B&B with delightful patrons who work their socks off it seems to deal with an ever increasing clientele that book via the internet with no prior knowledge of what they are getting... Please try looking things up before booking! You aren't booking into a 5* hotel with a reception and staff, just a family run business that charges a very reasonable rate in a highly sought after area!
