Happy with the stay.
Owner of the house was very friendly and helpful. House was clean, although room a bit small. As I needed a place just for a sleep I didn't have a problem with that at all. Breakfast was great. Overall I was happy with the stay.

Fair2.0 / 5
Lack of attention to detail, not worth the cost
Chose this place because it was the closest to the ferry, for an early morning. This must be where most of the business comes from, yet the owner was reluctant to get up too early for us to have a cooked breakfast, so we compromised on a later time, and got cereal, toast and coffee. The room was tiny, and there was a HUGE teddy bear decorating the bed! When you want to use the bed, you have to find somewhere in an already cramped room, to put it. Don't clutter it up with USELESS STUFF! It would have been more beneficial to have a box of tissues on the bedside table. At least if you want to clutter up the place, do it with something useful. The metal bed had round knobs on the end of it, one of which was loose and kept falling off. The bed was uncomfortable and was saggy in the middle. There was one bulb not working in the room, and NO light working in the bathroom. I had read reviews from other people commenting about the non-working light, and expected it would have been rectified by now. If it is something more than a blown bulb, then it should have been dealt with by an electrician. Won't stay here again.

Best breakfast in Poole!
Lovely B&B just a street back from the Quayside. David, the host, is a lovely chap. Made us feel welcome and took great care of us. Note that he doesn't take cards. Cash only!
