Stayed one night! Had to share bathroom/toilet with staff, bath was absolutely disgusting, not sure when it had last been cleaned!!! Couldn't wait to get out.We are dog lovers and have two of our own but to have to sit and have your breakfast surrounded by dogs one in particular (a very large retriever) drooling all over the table,the owner...

The first beer I tried had gone off, once the barmaid gained permission to replace it was ok. The pies were tasty but at £11 horrendously overpriced. The "Beer Garden" is the front carpark, you are sitting on the side of the road. I would continue driving to Lulworth Cove.

We went here as had read what a dog-friendly place it was & it is but it was dated, shabby & grubby & the room smelt musty even though the windows were open. If we went back to this area we would definitely look for alternative accommodation.

We paid more than usual for bed and breakfast here because I had wanted to visit for years after seeing it in one of my dog magazines. Good points were that the staff were friendly and did their best. Also in was genuinely dog friendly. The cider was good and the location couldn't be bettered. However___the whole place could do...

If you like cider it must be heaven but otherwise it is poor. The ham in the ham egg and chips was sliced packet ham and many of the ingredients in the mackerel ploughmans were just cheap and nasty. And just a sliver of mackerel when it's sold in the local fish shop just down the road! Staff were indifferent.... More

Stayed here a couple of times now with dog and it is charming and relaxing. It is lovely to exchange conversation with other dog owners and once one checks in - it is so easy to relax and staff are friendly and helpful. Do think the rooms will have to be fixed up a little soon as it doesn't seem... More

This is the first time that I've been away with my dog and wasn't sure what to expect and was concerned that my dog would be shut away in the hotel room whilst I ate breakfast. This proved to be unfounded as dogs are allowed to accompany guests at breakfast and a doggy sausage is provided for your pooch. I... More

I loved this B&B, mostly because it allowed me to take my dog. The rooms are fine.. nothing spectacular but comfy. It was a hot weekend so air con would have been nice - but NOT authentic :-). We weren't looking for luxury just comfort and a warm welcome and that's what we got. Staff were friendly, food wasn't great... More

Stayed 2 nights, comfy room, did the job, food ok. A restful sleep and not noisey in the evenings A great selection of beer and cider on draft. 10 minute walk to the Lulworth cove and very centrally located for other points of interest.
