“Overpriced, overrated, no frills - would never stay there again”
Reviewed 29 August 2010

The Beach House was not our first choice but the preferred accommodations were full so based on previous reviews on trip adviser of this B&B, made a booking to stay. A very disappointing experience indeed. We were given a very large room at the front furnished with 3 mismatched bunk beds & a fourth cot in the closet. Haven't slept in a bunk bed since my youth hostel days! Traffic noise was continual as the Beach House fronts the one way street which is the only exit off the island. The room had bare wooden floors, which were gritty. Dust under the t.v. stand, hair in the shower, basin not very clean. The tiny bathroom had the smallest shower possible and one had to squeeze past the basin to get into it. Hot water jug was dusty - there were 2 tea bags provided plus instant coffee. The downstairs lounge was locked except for breakfast which was very ordinary indeed with poor quality bacon and sausage. Would not recommend this B&B to anyone.

Reviewed 12 August 2010

Stayed for two nights with a friend whilst on holiday in Dorset. The room was very clean and our beds were comfortable. Rather an odd mix of colours and decor but again fresh and clean. Our "private bathroom" was across the landing and the door was quite difficult to open without disturbing others. An easier lock is really required. We would have prefered the bathroom to be slightly more spacious but was adequate for a couple of nights. A few additions to the bathroom would have made our stay more comfortable. i.e. hook on the back of the bathroom door and a bin would have been a bonus! Breakfast was nicely cooked and there was plenty of choice.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The Beach House and I wish we could have stayed longer. The location is fabulous. Roy made us very welcome. The room was lovely and the breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to everybody. Chesil beach is beautiful. The weather was not very kind to us, but on a sunny day it must be lovely. We were recommended The Cove Inn for a meal, which was just up the road and the atmosphere in the pub was very jovial and the food was good too. So, ten out of ten for this bed and breakfast.
