“What more can one ask ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stayed here on Saturday night, room comfortable and clean (and quiet), breakfast excellent.
A chipper almost opposite and a paper shop 100 yards down the road.
Royal Portland Arms, 200 yards up the hill, has excellent choice of beers.

Absolutely faultless. Mark and Jo are great hosts and go out of their way to be helpful. We arrived late at 8.30pm last Friday and they made us welcome right away: a table was set by Jo and I went across to get a fish and chip supper across the road (also a very, very good chip shop!). Their coffee shop below does great coffee and the breakfasts we had on both days were awesome. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

I stayed at 77 for a few days but wished I could have stayed longer. Mark and Jo are a warm wonderful couple and this is reflected in the passion and professionilism as hosts. The breakfasts are huge and believe me you would not be able to eat anything else for the remainder of the day but if you find that you have room to spare and a cake lover try the mocha cake!! it's worth staying a lot longer to sample the beautiful and delicious cakes on display in their own cafe next. In general Mark and Jo are everything a potential guest would expect in a host and believe they would never let you down - top marks to Mark and Jo.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. SeventySeven is a beautiful B&B. We stayed in room 1 which had gorgeous sea views. It was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was awesome. Mark and Jo are brilliant hosts, and have lots of local knowledge. Would definitely stay here again.

You need to know where to look for this B&B, 77 is the clue! Walk up the main Fortuneswell street and check the numbers on the doors. Once indoors it is a wonderful building. The owners are just so friendly, breakfasts are huge, we went down a little early on our first morning and started on the cereals, what we did not know was that so many more options would just keep coming out, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts etc... you have to pace yourself! The cooked breakfast that followed is excellent too, with really tasty sausages, bacon and black pudding. Many items are home-made, jams, breads. Mark takes your order so you can have as little or as much as you need. The rooms are great, all have free wi-fi and and the other little things that you need. The plumbing system is excellent with fast and plentiful hot water and hot radiators when you need them. One of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in, very highly recommended.

I stayed here just for one night in the Easter holidays with my young daughter, whilst meeting up with friends. I can't rate it highly enough and will definitely return. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable, and the showers are very powerful. The breakfast was fantastic and they couldn't do enough to help and make my stay pleasurable.

We spent three days here in late March. It was splendid. Jo and Mark made us very welcome, our room had fabulous views of the sea and the breakfasts set us up for the day. Seventyseven is an interesting building - a former grocery store - and typical of those built during Portland's Victorian heyday: Mark knows a good deal of its history. Don't be deceived by its somewhat austere exterior - inside it's very comfortable and cosy and this adds to what we found to be a relaxing stay.
We ate at the nearby Cove House Inn - outstanding location on Chesil Beach, great value pub food and plenty of atmosphere - and at the Crab House Cafe at Ferrvbridge which is a couple of miles towards Weymouth. This is pricier and has a somewhat chic air about it: it has an impressive reputation as a fish restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for one that looks out over the sea
