“Well appointed”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Good clean facility well equipped and very comfortable furniture. However the accommodation is curious and having stayed we can see why we do not live in conservatories. The bed room come sitting room is in a large square conservatory as can be seen on the property website. It is very hot with the sun on it and noisy during rain storms, it would benefit from and external sail over the poly carbonate roof to keep the sun and rain off. All that being said it is a good location to explore the island from and close to the costal path on each side.

“A very good base for a Dorset holiday”

We have just returned from our second holiday at the Hideaway. The accommodation was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for Pete and Amy the owners, even to having to leave work to let us in after I had managed to lock ourselves out. The property was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, with its secure garden it was perfect for our little dog. Also the welcome pack was most acceptable.

“Spotlessly Clean, Well Equipped, Fantastic Walks from the Doorstep”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Stayed here for a week in August. Portland is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle but still has plenty to offer anyone who prefers a quieter holiday with great coastline walks and good places to eat, many of which come with great views. Great communications from the owners who also provided lots of useful information about the area. Nice touch leaving some goodies for us to find in the fridge on our arrival. Very comfortable furniture and bed (including garden furniture). Fully equipped kitchen. The only reason I have not given 5 out of 5 is simply due to the construction of the lounge/bedroom area - which (as is clearly shown in the photographs) is a conservatory - the potential negatives being that if the sun is shining it gets unbearably hot during the day and if it rains hard during the night the noise of the rain hitting the roof can make sleeping difficult. We had both of these weathers during our stay. To be fair there is an air conditioning unit and the room does cool down quickly once the sun goes down. It would not put me off returning to Portland Hideaway - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
