This is a lovely place to stay. Very well situated for all that Weymouth has to offer. Karen and Richard gave a very warm welcome. The room was as expected, clean and had all that someone may need. The breakfast was wonderful with a great selection.

Welcome was exceptional from Karen and all the details covered - we were expected so check in was simple. In terms of cleanliness and overall decor including the room, if ever the...

They gave us advice on good walks in the area, provided us with much appreciated bacon sandwiches when we left early, changed the quilt to a lighter one when the weather suddenly turned warm and were...

We stayed here recently and has to be the best B&B we have stayed in, from the moment you walk through the door you know it's going to be lovely and we weren't disappointed in any way.
