We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the penthouse and found it well-situated for the many local amenities of Poole and Dorset. The cream carpets and cream sofa have over the years proved to be very practical. We have many guests with young families, many of whom return.

"Beautiful view and great base for visiting Dorset"
We had a lovely relaxing stay and the large dual aspect windows were the main reason we booked. Regardless of the weather you can be guaranteed lovely views of the harbour with lots of natural daylight. The apartment was lovely and quiet and close enough to walk into Poole for evening meals. The apartment was immaculately clean and had everything you would need. The landlord and lady were keen to maintain high standards of cleanliness in the apartment and this was the only thing that detracted from fully relaxing (cream carpets and a 10 month old were not the most practical combination). Overall a lovely break.

"Five Star All The Way"
Absolutely brilliant. Ideal for the oldies.
Views great. Apartment - out of this world.
Could I fault anything? - would be extremely picky if I said I missed a bread bin.
Other than that all we could wish for and more.
Would easily return - and hopefully will.
Because of the beautiful decor i would be inclined not to recommend young children
Good for the younger ones too! Have had many families stay with their children - from babies, toddlers to teenagers. Looking forward to seeing you again in September.
