Lovely guesthouse, very clean, brilliant hospitality and easy parking, close to town. A good cooked breakfast in the morning but the only downside is the very very strong smell of cigarette throughout the house.

The guest house is beautiful and clean, our bedroom was a nice large room with ample cupboards and drawers, it was on the front of the house but we had very little noise from the passing traffic.Our breakfast was always freshly cooked with ample portions and good choice. The house is within walking distance of the bus and train stations....

You can go for a long walk to Poole Park...

Stayed here with a friend in the ensuite twin room which was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. Our bathroom had a shower but we also had access to the shared bathroom which had a bath inside. There were various options for breakfast and everything we had was delicious. As vegetarians we were both well catered for. Ann and her...

My son and I stayed here for 1 night, and received a very warm welcome, comfortable room and excellent breakfast. The guesthouse is very convenient for all of Poole's main attractions and whilst it is on a main road, the double glazing meant that we didn't notice the traffic during the night. Will definitely use again.

This is the best place in Poole! Accommodations, bed, and breakfast were awesome! Super clean and fresh! My hosts were excellent and very accommodating to me! I was within an easy walk from the hospital, bus and shopping. I will stay here on my next visit for sure!
