Reviewed April 23, 2014

Stayed for a total of 5 nights and the experience was excellent, 5 stars from start to finish, room was great and breakfast was delicious! Excellent location to near attractions and a stone throw away from the high street, very polite and always willing to help with directions etc. Will definately be staying again when I come back down.

Thanks for having me down!

Gutted you had to leave Alistair…you were a pleasure to have stay with us. Pleased that you did well in your skateboarding competition. See you again soon when you bring your mum down for a wee holiday….bring the Mercedes down when you next visit…I'd love to see it or even better have a test drive in it. Best wishes Yvonne

I had a 5 night stay at the Mariners B&B, the room was well appointed and the whole B&B spotless throughout. Yvonne is very nice lady and ensured I had a delicious full breakfast and fresh coffee each morning. For the more healthy there was a range of fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal. In walking distance of the B&B there is a wide range of nice bars, pubs with character and good restaurants. I would stay again the next time I am in Poole.

This is an Ideal B&B located within walking distance of our training venue (3rg) and the local pubs and restaurants.

Yvonne was the perfect host and made us feel very welcome from the start and provided us with a wealth of local knowledge and a perfect breakfast every morning.

Exactly what I needed. The bed I had was very comfortable with lovely bedding teas and coffee in the rooms.the breakfast was very fresh and really enjoyed the strawberrys that were out. Very clean. Perfect host. Thank you for letting my friend from another b and b use your iron and ironing board. Shall stay there again if I'm in the area.

I was made to feel very welcome at The Mariners Guest House. My room was small but comfortable and very well presented. Yvonne was very friendly and helpful in giving me information about the local area.

I stayed one night in one of the two attic rooms. Yvonne was very welcoming and helpful.
The attic rooms are on the second floor and accessed by quite a steep and narrow staircase. My room had two single pine beds - there was little floor space and although everything was very clean, there was very little room to move about in.
No desk or dressing table, so working was out of the question, but in fairness I didn't ask about this when I booked.
The beds were comfortable and I had a good night's sleep.
The bathroom was not so good for me - the shower is built into an area with a sloping ceiling and space is very tight, even though the cubicle itself was a good size. There was no shelf, so nowhere to place toiletries other tun the floor, and the shower head and water pressure was poor. The only mirror was on the wall opposite the basin which made shaving a little more challenging.
The dining room was excellent - and the breakfast very good indeed.
There was a lot I liked about Mariners, but a few aspects make it not ideal for my needs.

Mariner's guest house is a great place to stay with great value pricing so if your looking for accomodation around the poole area give it a try. It is a very good quality bed and breakfast outlet with good size rooms that are very clean with comfortable bedding and facilities. It has a lot of very good local restaurants and pubs and also is very close to the music venue Mr Kyps. We will definitely be booking again next time in that area. Yvonne the owner was very helpful and knowledgeable regarding local amenties and attractions
