A comfortable, well located house, with a friendly host and good breakfast. Poole Park was super and we were given a recommendation and discount for an excellent Thai restaurant just up the road. Good value but take ear plugs for the busy main road.

My friend (the Groom) and I arrived on Thursday evening...

We booked this at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised. Located on the edge of Poole park the B&B was very clean and tidy although the building is quite old. We were in a 3 bed room with shared bathroom but were very pleased to find the bathroom, which was spotless, was only a few feet from our room...
