1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had booked a room at the hotel to celebrate our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and whilst we were not expecting a five star hotel to say we were disappointed would be a massive understatement. We arrived and were greeted by a friendly gentleman behind the bar who showed us to our room - up two flights of steep stairs and... More

We did not have a great reception at this establishment....the guy behind the bar was less than helpful when I was trying to enquire about booking a table for lunch. Yes it was a nice sunny day and no doubt they were busy but a warm welcome would not have taken much ! The place looks lovely with lots of... More

This is part of the Hall & Woodhouse group of pubs and inns and whoever was responsible for putting together the look and feel of the Lulworth Cove Inn got it just right - that is, if what you are after is a relaxed atmosphere, charming and bright decor and good service. The bedroom (we got one with a sea... More

We absolutely loved this pub, and the staff were always so helpful and friendly, goodness knows what has happened this season !? The man behind the bar was rather rude and behaved as though he was doing you a favour as opposed to providing you with a service. His manner was offhand and totally unacceptable, to top the experience off,... More

The reviews of this place are not exaggerated. It's an absolutely perfect place to spend a winter's weekend. The pub is set amongst stunning scenery, just minutes from the cove. The room we were in was beautifully designed with lots of lovely touches such as complimentary bottles of water by the side of bed and a leaflet full of short... More

Lulworth cove is an excellent base for walking and very pretty. The hotel is in a good position in the village. We booked what was described as the best room (room 3) with a balcony and roll top bath in the bedroom! Good sized room but the space is not used effectively - there is nowhere to put clothes except... More

Hall W, General Manager at Lulworth Cove Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for taking time to leave your comments concerning your stay. When we refurbished the Lulworth Cove inn 2 years ago we made the brave decision as to not put wardrobes into our bedrooms as this did not fit in with our “retro shabby chic” theme and it allows more space to some of the smaller bedrooms. Most of... More

Stopped here for lunch and just wanted a snack. We ordered a Classic Sharing board with one portion of the lamb kebab starter to share. The service was a bit slow as it seemed that the kitchen was serving tickets in order. However, when our food arrived it was a wooden board crammed with eggs, cheese, pate, prawns breads, apple,...

Food excellent, log burner very welcoming & waitress really friendly and helpful, the place is immaculate clean and tidy. My loyal readers will know my obsession with clean, and flawless toilets are essential, and this place does not disappoint there! I cannot praise this place generally enough, however, there was a grey haired, balding man working the bar who did... More

We stayed for a couple of nights at the hotel.We had a lovely sea facing room with view of the cove. The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent and we had a good meal in the evening. I would suggest you book a table for the evening as it can get busy. The hotel is a great... More
