This was our first visit to this dog friendly guest house and we absolutely loved it. It is spotlessly clean with very attractive furnishings and decoration. Our bed was super comfortable. Yvonne was just lovely, her breakfasts were delicious, on site parking was a bonus and we felt very comfortable there. As we have family living close by we anticipate...

Everything was clean and freshly decorated with a relaxing atmosphere. Owner really helpful in ordering me a taxi and providing an early breakfast. My bed was comfortable and the shower in the ensuite worked perfectly without any of the mental concentration you sometimes need, Would recommend it highly, and if like me you're on foot from the ferry, there is...

My wife and I usually stay here when visiting Poole. The location is central, but still quiet. Short walk to Lower Parkstone with some nice restaurants and bars. Rooms are of good size. Breakfast is delicious. Yvonne is good fun and easy-going. We highly recommend this place.

Here we are again. Lost count now. 5th or 6th visit. This is such a little gem of a place. So well situated for the Ferry for me to visit my daughters but just far enough out at Sandbanks not to be in the hustle and bustle of Poole. Hotels must hate me with my OCD. I just check everywhere...

We have just had a lovely week's stay in The Mariners. Yvonne, the Proprietor, is a lovely friendly lady. Our room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, bright and fresh. For breakfast every day we couldn't resist the fresh fruit that included mango (yum, yum), strawberries & other fruits & natural yogurt. We followed this by a freshly cooked hot full...
