“Friendly Hospitality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Although we stopped over for only one night on two separate occasions, nothing was too much trouble. Clean bedroom and big en-suite. Good variety of food from the menu and well presented. Thank you, Ken and Hilary for looking after us SO well - we shall certainly revisit when down your way again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Tideway is situated in a very secluded, prestigious area - so no need to worry about noise.

I stayed at Tideway for 3 nights over the Jubilee Weekend. It must be one of the most tranquil, idyllic places I have stayed at. Wonderful views out over Lytchett Bay. The facilities were excellent. As I had busy days out sailing at Poole, the cooked breakfasts went down a treat. The hospitality of Ken and Hilary was perfect. I am only sorry I probably will not be back sailing in Poole for a couple of years!

We stayed here a few times when we were relocating to the area. It is a lovely home with beautiful gardens and great views of Lytchett Bay.

We stayed in an ensuite double a few times and on one trip we travelled with our daughter and there was ample room for a guest bed for her. The bathroom is large and very clean with both a shower and a corner bath.

The mattress on the bed was a little harder than I would like but that is a very minor point. Best of all was the breakfast which is by far the best we have ever had in a b and b, and we still buy the sausages they served us here because they are that good!

A perfect place to stay on business or as a quiet getaway.

We stayed at Tideway in April 2012 whilst visiting family in Poole. Ken and Hilary made us very welcome and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Lovely views and garden. Freshly cooked breakfast each morning. They were very accomodating when we requested a late check out as we were doing an early morning run - and didn't complain when we returned muddy and wet. They just made us fresh coffee. Their recommendations for days out were very much appreciated.
And the boxer, Dollar, is gorgeous!

Ken & Hilary welcomed us to their wonderful B & B in Poole. The garden is amazing and we were welcomed by their pet dog Dollar the boxer, who is so loving. The rooms were delightfully clean and fresh and the dining and sitting room looks out over an estuary in Poole where the wildlife is abundant. Ken is full of interesting info and Hilary's breakfast is to die for. We enjoyed sharing a bottle of champagne with them for ours (and theirs the day before) anniversary and will definitely be back again to explore more of the hidden gems they have told us about - and yes there are red squirrels to be seen on Brownsea Island

Room Tip: Both downstairs room overlook the front of the house but the peace and quiet is amazing - the twin b...

We will definitely be returning to stay at this B&B. We received a warm and friendly welcome to Hilary and Ken's lovely home in very tranquil surroundings. It is conveniently situated about five miles from Poole. Our room was very comfortable, the breakfast was great and nothing was too much trouble for Hilary and Ken. Dollar, their beautiful boxer was a delight, and very well trained! We are so pleased to have found Tideway, and it willcertainly be our first choice for B&B whenever we visit Poole.

A lovely B&B worth the few minutes drive from Poole for the peace and quiet of this tranquil location with stunning views. The rooms are clean and decorated to a high standard, you are made extremely welcome into Hilary's beautiful home and she clearly goes the extra mile. Breakfast was delicious, and Hilary's top tip of the fish and chip shop recommendation was spot on....Lakeside, opp Asda as you go into Poole...the best ever! Would highly recommend this quiet B&B if you enjoy a tranquil setting off the beaten track and enjoy wildlife/twitching- we will definately be back .
