We left yesterday after two nights in my favourite room (a cosy double, back of the house with French door and balcony overlooking a charming courtyard) I love it here, Janet and Ian made us feel at home from the moment we stepped through the door. Janet feels like an old friend,... More

We spent two nights at Turnstones and we were very impressed, it's a long time since we've stayed in a B&B so we were a little apprehensive but we shouldn't have been because it's a fantastic property. The bedroom was immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. We especially appreciated the quality linen on the comfy bed. Our hosts were super friendly... More

Spent a few days here having a look around the Isle of Portland and surroundings. Great B&B well decorated throughout and very comfortable. Great room with sea views, excellent bed and great shower. Perfect breakfast and in a great location to explore the island and the rest of Dorset. Thanks Janet and Ian for a great stay.

Unfortunately we only stayed one night at this lovely BnB. We had a wonderful time! The rooms are very clean, nice and comfortable. The two hosts are very nice and friendly people who seem to enjoy having guests. The breakfast was very good, freshly prepared and me being a vegetarian was also considered. We can only recommend this lovely place... More

A really comfortable stay with wonderful hosts. We really felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. Excellent breakfast and consideration for our tastes. Janet and Ian were on hand if needed, and took the time to explain locations to visit and offer recommendations. Without a doubt I would stay again.

A really pleasant stay in a comfortable, welcoming B&B. Service was outstanding, even down to offering a cup of tea when I got back from where I'd been working. I'll definitely be returning next time I'm working down that way.
