“A really lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

I stayed here just for one night in the Easter holidays with my young daughter, whilst meeting up with friends. I can't rate it highly enough and will definitely return. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable, and the showers are very powerful. The breakfast was fantastic and they couldn't do enough to help and make my stay pleasurable.

We spent three days here in late March. It was splendid. Jo and Mark made us very welcome, our room had fabulous views of the sea and the breakfasts set us up for the day. Seventyseven is an interesting building - a former grocery store - and typical of those built during Portland's Victorian heyday: Mark knows a good deal of its history. Don't be deceived by its somewhat austere exterior - inside it's very comfortable and cosy and this adds to what we found to be a relaxing stay.
We ate at the nearby Cove House Inn - outstanding location on Chesil Beach, great value pub food and plenty of atmosphere - and at the Crab House Cafe at Ferrvbridge which is a couple of miles towards Weymouth. This is pricier and has a somewhat chic air about it: it has an impressive reputation as a fish restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for one that looks out over the sea

Mark and Jo went out of there way to make our stay pleasant at short notice. The rooms were very nice and breakfast was wonderful.

We will definitely return if we are lucky enough to visit Dorset again.

Stayed for a week while working in Portland and can say it is possibly the best B&B I have stayed in for work or pleasure in the UK! Large, clean and spacious rooms, fantastic hospitality and brilliant value for money. Highly reccomended.
