A really comfortable stay with wonderful hosts. We really felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. Excellent breakfast and consideration for our tastes. Janet and Ian were on hand if needed, and took the time to explain locations to visit and offer recommendations. Without a doubt I would stay again.

From the initial booking right through to the goodbye, we were made to feel welcome & looked after in their lovely home. Our room was spotless, with a comfy bed & luxurious... More

A really pleasant stay in a comfortable, welcoming B&B. Service was outstanding, even down to offering a cup of tea when I got back from where I'd been working. I'll definitely be returning next time I'm working down that way.

Turnstones is the best place to stay on Portland if you are looking for an elegantly decorated, spotless home with perfect hosts in Janet and Ian.

My wife and I didn't realise how beautiful the Isle of Portland was or what good fortune we had in staying at Turnstones. We were in that area on business but stayed for two nights and did the round island walk on the Sunday. The B&B ticked all the boxes as the hosts were charming and very helpful, the bedroom... More

I would echo all the other TAs good points made, we came for a couple of days following on their advice and all I can say is thanks. It was just right and a nice location too. The whole place is well cared for and bedrooms are fine. The general atmosphere is relaxing and comes from the owners who do... More
