“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Had a wonderful two nights at the Beach Rooms. Polly and Pete are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they had a great local knowledge. Breakfast served on the patio and was delicious and the home made marmalade a real treat. The sea view from the patio and lounge, the closeness to the beach and coastal walks make this a great place to stay and relax. the best nights sleep I have had for a while just the sound of seagulls and distant mooing of cows. this was our first visit but will not be our last.

We stayed here just for one night (pity!!) Polly and Pete couldn't have been more friendly, fun, interesting and accommodating. It is difficult to find anywhere that will have a family of 5, unless you go for 2 rooms at a hotel which is very expensive and dull. The rooms here are great, they managed to get us all in with a little manoevering, the three children loved the experience, played frisbee in the garden and felt very comfortable and at home. The breakfast was an absolute triumph, Polly's home made marmalade is fabulous. We wanted to buy a whole load! Also the location is superb, plenty of parking and a 2 minute stroll to the beach. We will definitely come back on a stormy day to get better fossil hunting!! Thank you for a lovely start to our holiday.

The difference between "Excellent" and "Very good" seems like a good place to start. We stayed for two nights, and the second night sleep was a problem. I was woken at eleven o'clock, midnight and three a.m. by activity on the other side of the connecting door. This wasn't excessive noise, like partying and loud music. Just normal conversational sound as household members arrived or left, or simply moved around. The problem is that while our self-contained apartment was spotless and very well equiped, it was lot smaller than anywhere else we've stayed and as such there is nowhere which is very far from the main part of the house.
£130 per night is at the very top end of our B&B range, and although the views and the location come at a premium, the rooms themselves are very small. Nevertheless, in fine weather the available area is doubled, as the private sun terrace and garden come into their own. Being served a truely delicious full English outdoors was very welcome, and if another foot was taken off the hedge we could have admired the view while we ate it. Better yet, there is a large kettle barbeque provided, which Pete had provisioned with locally sourced lumpwood charcoal. As soon as we'd settled in and heated the coals, we could barbeque an evening meal while listening to the sea.
One further point worth a mention is the seperate bathroom and WC, which is a very useful feature. So, to sum up; the breakfast, the barbeque, the view and the location make it easy to see why everyone rates this place so highly. The only real downside was a night of disturbed sleep, which made the price look steep.

Room Tip: In fine weather, you have twice the space.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us and I'm glad that on the whole, you enjoyed your stay with us.
We do of course regret any disturbance you may have encountered but as you can see from all our previous reviews, this is NOT normal at The Beach Rooms and appears to be a one-off in 5 years of trading.
It's a shame you didn't mention this to us when we asked if you were happy with your stay as we would have made moves to address the situation with you personally.

Fantastic break at the Beach Rooms. We were looking for somewhere to take our son (6) fossil hunting and we couldn't have found a better place. So close to the beach and some great fossil finds! The Beach Rooms provided us with the best accomodation as we could put our son to bed and relax in the lounge area then move him through when we were ready for bed. Polly, Peter and Ruben are wonderful hosts - we were made to feel so welcome which meant that we relaxed straight away. Breakfasts are a delight - poached eggs cooked to perfection! And marmalade - mmmmm. The accomodation is very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed including dinosaur bedding for James! Apart from fossil hunting we enjoyed cycling, walks and visiting other nearby seaside towns. We definitely want to come back.

Highly recommend this B&B. Pete and Polly have a really good understanding of what people want. They responded quickly to our email enquiry, and met us when we arrived with a warm welcome. The suite itself has plenty of personal touches which show that they really care about their guests having a great experience. The location is incredible - you can look at, and listen to, the sea from the sitting room. Breakfast was brought to us in the suite and I have to admit that they were the best poached eggs that I can remember.
We needed a break and some peace and relaxation and this place, and our hosts, delivered that and more. We will definitely be going back soon!

We spent 2 nights down at Polly and Peters Beachrooms...Close enough to hear the sea roar as well as see it from our sofa in the wee living room. Big picture windows..super holiday bed and fresh air. POlly and Peter are wonderful hosts, helping with any local info/funny stories if you need. Breakfasts were hearty, locally smoked kippers, poached egg perfection or full english/continental and bought to the table overlooking the beach. Having that little bit of extra space made such a difference to your standard B&B. Plenty of walking to be done and pottering down on the beach fossil hunting. Would highly recommend!

Great weekend at the Beach Rooms. A wonderful view, peaceful and very comfortable nights sleep and Polly and Peter were excellent hosts, respecting privacy but available when needed and happy to give time to chat. Lovely cooked breakfast delivered to the accommmodation. The apartment was well equipped with china, glasses, cutlery etc should you wish to prepare a sandwich or have a takeaway delivered and everything extremely clean. We appreciated the living space to relax in. Will definitely make a return visit to the Beach Rooms and to further explore this beautiful area of West Dorset.

Room Tip: The bedroom was a little small, but still contained a kingsize bed, this didn't matter as having...
