Great welcome and service from John and Chris. Immaculate room with every detail thought about. Breakfast varied and superb. Not actually by the beach but about 4 minutes walk. Excellent beds. Shower a little difficult to get constant temperature. One of the best b&bs we have stayed in.

Suffice to say they were amazed by the quality of their room, all the little extras, the incredible breakfast but the best thing in their, and our, opinion were the hosts, Chris and John.

John & Chris are welcoming, professional hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Excellent quiet location, short walk down to the beach. Room 2 on the first floor overlooked their splendid garden. The room and shower ensuite were well designed, spotlessly clean and a delight to stay in. Comfortable king size bed. Breakfasts were amazing - the widest selection...

This wonderful B&B was recommended by friends (Angela & David) who stayed last September- everything they said about it was true!! An amazing variety of choice at breakfast - a Dorset full English, eggs, fish, pancakes, as well as fruit, cereals and smoothies - the best start to the day. I stayed in the twin (room 3) which was sooooo...

We have stayed many times at the B&B by the beach and have always found it to be excellent in every way. All the rooms are stylish, spotless and very comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious with so much choice and the home made cakes left on landing daily are impossible to resist. What's not to like?
