Great B&B with great hospitality
Great B&B located between Weymouth and Poole. Only 10min to tank museum or monkey world. 15min to Weymouth sea front. Hosts were welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was great and service was brilliant. Would definitely be staying again.

Very well maintained property and excellent hosts. Mark went above and beyond to help us. Both hosts helped us with heating the milk for baby and also providing and asking about our sleep. Breakfast was good and pointers from host allowed us to use our time for the best.

We had a fantastic stay. Brilliant location. Wonderful house, excellent couple running this place. Very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the apartment so had our own kitchen , with a good sized fridge/freezer which was so useful given the hot weather at the time. The location is really good for Durdle Door. Really nice pub only a mile away so walking distance. Would definitely recommend and we'll be going again. Oh, and the outside area is great too and a social space to chat with other guests.

Lovely stay at Marley House. The photos of the house do not do it justice. Beautiful gardens bordered by the Rover Win, excellent location to Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove and a very warm welcome from Mark and Jan. Our room was very comfortable, beds great, fridge with cold water and new shower room.

We loved the peaceful setting and beautifully presented house. Excellent freshly cooked breakfast and amusing host! Our room was tastefully decorated with a very comfortable bed - small negative was the noisy boiler in the adjoining area switching on and off, and the water pressure in the bath/shower could have been a bit higher.

6/10 Good

Quiet break
On arrival the house uses a "ring" doorbell,which we had to try a few times. We eventually it was answered Mark came across as rude, we didn't see anyone when we entered and had to guess where our room was, first names were written on a piece of paper with room number, but mine wasn't written down properly. However the room was pretty with a lovely view. In the room information handbook it said that we needed to state what time we wanted breakfast but again there was no one to tell. Eventually met Mark in the evening who was pleasant enough. Breakfast was average and despite the fact I had informed them that we were vegetarian no real alternatives were offered and although it said vegan options were on offer there wasn't really anything. Having said all that we had a nice break and it was quiet. Mark and Jan could benefit from having contact with their guests on arrival.
