“Great place to stay, fabulous view”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We I stayed at 65 Fortuneswell for a week in mid April. We chose it on the basis of the reviews and photos on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The property is excellent, modern but in keeping with the surrounding properties - with one stunning exception - the balcony ! Offering terrific sea views and sunsets as well as lots of space, it really is a bonus. We were lucky with the weather so we spent lots of time out there, reading, eating and drinking, just relaxing. The rest of the house is pretty good too, split over four levels ( we soon got use to the stairs -and we live in a bungalow). It is spacious with plenty of room for everyone - even if there were eight people in the party. Spotless, well equipped and nicely furnished throughout. We were provided with precise instructions on how to get there along with lots of suggestions on where to eat, drink etc. Regarding the road outside - yes - it is busy, but it wasn't noisy enough to have an impact on our enjoyment, and it does lessen off in the evening. Deborah was very helpful with any questions we had. The private parking spot was also a plus point. We would thoroughly recommend this property for a comfortable, relaxing holiday with great views.

We enjoyed our weekend at this property. Local co-op was handy and conveniently situated for WPNSA. The property was lovely and clean and well catered.
Would stay there again.

“Great place”
Reviewed 10 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We hired the house for my husband's birthday and really enjoyed our stay. It's very close to the beach and local facilities. Quiet neighbourhood. Very big lounge and comfortable bedrooms. Well maintained house and very clean. Excellent choice for short breaks.

“Beautiful spacious house with fabulous views”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed here with my Mum and teenage daughter and the house was immaculate and well furnished throughout. The house has a lovely large balcony on the top floor which overlooks the sea and it was lovely to sit out there and relax. There is a co-op supermarket a few doors down which we found really useful and they open until late at night. The house has its own parking space at the back and there is a lot to see in the area and lovely views of chesil beach. Portland Castle well worth a visit. My daughter particularly appreciated the free WIFI at the property. One of the bedrooms is at the front of the house and the road outside gets quite noisy so bear that in mind if you like lie-ins! The property may not be suitable for people with mobility issues as its set out over 3 floors. Would recommend to friends.

“Large, comfy, clean , but on main road”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The property is on a very busy road so noise a bit of an issue in the evenings, but the house is great. Well appointed, clean, very comfy beds, can't really think of anything negative!
I had cause to speak to the owner while we were there, and she was lovely and very helpful.
The road noise didn't stop anyone sleeping, and dropped off in the later evening.
If you want somewhere really nice to stay, in easy reach of some good restaurants and great beaches and places to see, I would happily recommend 65 Fortuneswell. And it's really easy to find :)
