There is nothing bad to say about this b&b. It's very personal and welcoming The location is fantastic and the breakfast was good and plentiful. Shirley is wonderful and we would recommend down-along to any of our friends and family. The free Wi-Fi is a bonus and condements in the room were great.

Best continental breakfast I've ever had, which, coupled with the excellent rooms and charming location made the stay thoroughly enjoyable. Ideal base to explore the beautiful Dorset coastline and it's surrounding attractions.

This is a lovely b&b and we were made to feel very welcome by Shirley. The room was spotless and bed extremely comfortable. Wonderful breakfast too. I would recommend this place to anyone and it's only a 2 min walk to The Castle Inn too.

We had a perfact stay here! It was a 5 minute drive to Durdle door and Shirley was very friendly. The rooms are very clean. Having the bedroom and our own bathroom downstairs meant we could come and go without disturbing the owners. Breakfast was very nice!

Prompt emails on booking. Really nice welcome. We had both rooms - double for us and twin for kids. The rooms and dedicated bathroom form the bottom part of a house with the owners inhabiting the first floor. All spotless and the free wifi was easy to use. The beach is a 17 minute walk down the road but note...

We stayed here while walking the South West Coast Path. Just a very short walk from the coast - but far enough to leave the crowds at the visitor centre far behind. Very nice room - only a few moments walk to The Castle Inn for an evening meal - and a good breakfast the following morning.

We stayed at Downalong for 2 relaxing nights in this beautiful village. Lovely host, clean room with nice teas, fantastic breakfast and literally a stone's throw from The Castle Inn where we had wonderful meals each night with a very warm welcome - get there early! Nice walk into the cove.
