Had a wonderful few days with my new partner in Poole, was shown wonderful hospitality at The Mariners Guest house, breakfast was awesome and so was the owner Yvonne. Very knowledgable about the area and what activities where taking place. Would recommend, will definitely be returning here.

Perhaps you might be thinking of staying in one of the (overpriced) hotels in Poole or Sandbanks. It may be that you are not wanting: A genuinely warm welcome A very high standard of cleanliness and decorative order A good bed (not forgetting the pillows!) An excellent breakfast and great conversation with Yvonne and the other guests. If so, then...

We spent 3 comfortable nights at The, Mariners. First night was a bit cosy as my husband is very tall and we were in the loft, but Yvonne moved us to a larger room as soon as she could. The breakfast was excellent and Yvonne catered for my vegetarian needs happily. We recommend the Mariners to anyone.

Just stumbled upon this little gem in Poole and so glad we did. Couldn't fault this lovely guest house, the breakfast was superb with such a wide variety of choice and excellent quality.

The Guest House is well situated just yards from Poole Park, and is convenient for buses. On-site parking is good. It is a short walk to Ashley Cross with it`s lively nightlife. The rooms are bright, cosy, well appointed and very clean. Breakfast is great with a range of cereals, fresh fruit and juice plus English cooked breakfast. Best of...
