“Soo..... Helpful!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Great B&B, and as others have said spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and genuinely does 'feature local produce as far as possible' declaring provenance as well, including eggs from the garden (well the hens in the garden!).
The last minute important thing for us this time was the assistance offered and given during my temporary disability. I'm new to this 'challenged mobility' game and hadn't realised how different requirements are. Carol and Rob were so welcoming and helpful and did everything to make the one night stay in a ground floor room with walk in shower memorable for good reasons!
Thank you so much, and we look forward to seeing you without my crutches!

Very comfortable, modern and clean b&b.
We stayed in january for one night, we were made very welcome by our hosts. Our room on the first floor was a good size, faultlessly clean and lovely breakfast.

Very nice to see a bath at this time of year, only shower gel and body lotion were provided, so bring your own, which isn't an issue for us. We were recommended a nice pub for dinner and awoke with a cooked breakfast of your choosing, with cereals, fruit, pastries and yogurt to help yourself to. Lots of parking too.

Faultless stay!

We stayed at the White House this weekend as we had to be down in Poole to do some work on a family home. They had a deal on, so the stay was very reasonable, breakfast was amazing and all in all a great stay. The room was lovely and spacious with a bath, and the living area was huge. The owners were lovely a friendly and made us feel really welcome - I would definitely stay here again.

Our one night stay on way to France - could not fault this lovely accommodation this was a last minute booking - the owners were more than helpful - even getting up early to cook breakfast which was excellent for our early morning ferry. The bedroom very spacious with coffee/tea facilities plus home make cake. Definitely can recommend and would stay again when next in the area.

Wow. We had a brilliant stay here.
The hosts are lovely, we had a great chat in the short amount of time we spent there (unfortunately only 1 night). They have done a great job creating a really unique and impressive space. The room we had was massive, with a huge, modern bathroom as well. Very comfortable bed as well. We really liked how they had laid out the bedroom in a different way, was a great change to the "norm" of B&B'land.

The hostess had provided a voucher to a nearby restaurant which gave a free bottle of wine with 2 main meals (we were sold as soon as this was mentioned). We asked her how long it takes to walk and she very kindly offered to take us there in her car. Much appreciated.

The breakfast was delicious and served casually (nothing worse than a stressful breakfast) whenever you want it. The checkout time was also very relaxed.

All of this, combined with an affordable nightly rate, makes this gem a must if you're looking to stay in the area.

Warm hospitality from the owners, good accommodation in modern rooms, huge bed, excellent shower, fresh milk for your tea and coffee in the room, plus home made coconut cupcakes, breakfast at 10 a.m. no problem (superb breakfast too), reasonable B&B rates, whats not to like. Good base for visiting a very nice area of Dorset. Highly recommended.
