I booked this b and b on the basis of other reviews....we arrived slightly later than planned due to bank holiday traffic but this was no problem at all. we were warmly...

In my opinion, the breakfast scored highly as Julie and John had put in a lot of effort. There were cereals and a large bowl of fresh fruit pieces, which I had with yoghurt. The pot of coffee was good and I enjoyed the English breakfast. You could order a few other combinations as there was a lot of choice....

Spurring is run by a really friendly coup[le and is a lovely place to stay. My room was clean and spacious with everything you would expect. The rooms all have themes from Africa and there are pictures taken by the owners of their travels which gives a lovely feel to the place and makes for good conversation. The garden is...

We stayed for one night in celebration of our first wedding anniversary, visiting Monkey World. Monkey World and the tank museum as well as a host of other attractions are a short drive away (15 mins or so) and Wareham is walking distance, which was great for eating out. We had the Giraffe room which was very big, clear and...

For a special anniversary and a visit to Monkey World, my partner and I booked the Giraffe Room at this guest house for 2 nights from the 10th March. Staying away from home always makes me anxious as I am such a fussy person when it comes to food, cleanliness etc. However I needn't have worried with this place. We...

John and Julie made us feel very at home. We stayed in the Giraffe Room which was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. My girlfriend and I are both vegetarians and the breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit and cereal as well as a full cooked breakfast. Very good location so we could walk anywhere in the area in no time...

I rang at short notice needing accommodation for a party at the golf club. The proprietors were very helpful and whilst not having a double room available offered a twin room. The room was compact but clean with an ensuite shower and toilet. The beds were comfy and we had our own access through a side door so didn't need...

Spurwing is an ideal base for exploring the South Dorset area. The Jurassic Coast and in particular Chessil Beach,the interesting historic town of Dorchester (which has an exceptional County Museum) and the wonderful primate rescue centre at MonkeyWorld are all within an easy drive. There are several good restaurants within walking distance of Spurwing, including an excellent Nepalese/Indian one. The...

My brother & I needed a twin bedded B&B close to the Swanage Railway and this fitted the bill nicely. It was a short walk to the town centre and some nice pubs. John gave us a good welcome and recommended pubs & restaurants in Wareham including our target the Good Beer Guide rated King's Arms where we bumped into...
