We booked to stay for 3 nights between Christmas and the new year but left after one very long night. The room was terrible and was small and damp. The bed was very uncomfortable and contained the remnants of the previous occupants and their dogs. I didn't sleep at all as I was itching all night. The bathroom was only... More

We booked a stay at the Castle Inn after reading about its' selection of ciders in a Lonely Planet guide. We just stayed one night, and weren't sure what to expect. Both my boyfriend and I were thoroughly impressed with everything from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. The drive in was down some dark, narrow... More

We booked a 3 night stay at The Castle simply because we were looking for a dog friendly establishment local to Lulworth Cove. On arrival we were given a rundown of the rules and shown to our room by a very officious lady. As we entered our room we quickly realised that we had set our expectations too high. The... More

We stayed here for one night on a half term break - we did not have a dog with us (all the other guests did). The dogs were super well behaved as were their owners and they made our visit all the more delightful. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was very good. I cant understand some of the... More

Was a bit worried about staying here after reading some of the reviews but we had a lovely short break. The room was very clean and quirky, exactly what you would expect from a building this old. The breakfast was superb, one of the best weve had. We asked for extra portions and got loads every morning. Which pleased my... More

Had been for a walk along Lulworth cove and this pub was in the village, so stop for lunch. We had a sandwich which had a nice salad with it. Pub staff were friendly and helpful, I was going to have a cider, they had about 50, so did not know which one to have, the person who was serving... More

Enquired on a Sunday morning, before noon, with a member of staff outside as to whether they did Sunday roasts....no was the answer. No, sorry we dont, no offer of the menu that they do do on a Sunday, nothing. Shame as right in our doorstep. Not a good first impression at all. Went to next village and upon since... More

The food is of a high standard, well cooked, very well presented and reasonably priced. The friendly staff and service from Gill, Michael and the rest of the staff add to the high quality and standards.Can not wait to see what they are going to do for the Castle in the future.

Not many places allow dogs in the room but this one does which is why we went. Great location and lovely big breakfast but the rooms are very tired and there were more dogs than people at breakfast! Quite pricey for the room you get really. But overall friendly staff and great cider!
