Great location, friendly owner & superb breakfast
We really enjoyed our stay here, it's perfectly located for the main sights of Poole, a stone's throw from the harbour. The owner is lovely, and does a world class breakfast, including home made sourdough bread. You also have the chance to say hello to Alfie the dog. The room and bed were on the small side, but this is a period property. Overall, highly recommended
