“Great Guest House”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

All the rooms have just been re decorated over Christmas. I received a very warm welcome.
I stayed in a family room with a single and a double bed, the room was spotlessly clean, not a massive amount of space but adequate, a very nice bathroom with a good thermostatic shower.
The breakfast was perfect, got just what I asked for and just enough. parking is available at the rear. If I am staying in Poole in the future I would certainly phone to see if there were any vacancies. A good location. Great

We have stayed here several times over the past 6 years. Given a choice we would use this guest house on every trip to Poole but unfortunately as they are often so busy we can't always get the dates we need at short notice. The rooms are lovely. they are newly re-decorated and always spotlessly clean. The owners are brilliant and the food some of the nicest cooked you will find. There is plenty of choice and plenty of every-thing. They couldn't be more helpful. They even supply bottled water in the rooms. The guest house is situated ideally for the town centre, for buses, coaches and trains etc. They have plenty of information and leaflets about local places to visit. They spend time talking to the guests and are never to busy to help if they can. You are always made to feel welcome. They have our 100% recommendation.We have stayed in hundreds of hotels, guest houses and B & B's over the years but this is definitely up in the top 5 for us.

Room Tip: They have a ground floor room if the stairs are a problem. They have a separate bathroom with bath...

We arrived unannounced and was made most welcome. Room was spotless, bed very comfy. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts were so friendly, made us feel as we had known them a long time. Would certainly stay here again when we are in the area for the speedway.

This bed and breakfast is in a good location, only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Poole and has the added bonus of free parking at the rear of the premises.
I was met by the proprietors who made me most welcome and showed me to my room. The room was twin bedded and a good size with tea and coffee making facilities and complimentary cookies. Also a flat screen television and ironing board and iron. The bathroom was very clean and everything was top quality. The shower worked correctly and was nice and powerful.
Breakfast in the morning was a traditional full English was obviously freshly prepared using quality ingredients.
All in all I would say that the Towngate represented excellent value for money and would not hesitate to recommend it to either holidaymakers or persons on business like myself.
Ignore the rating of the swimming pool, It hasn't got one and I clicked by mistake!
