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.

Returned after break of couple of years, warm welcome, hours increased when food is served, much better, felt relaxed at meal even though we had 4 adults, 2 children and 1 young dog, idyllic thatched pub, accomodation booked last minute which suited us just fine, in fact the castle inn suits us just fine

This pub is just beautiful, its a must if you are in the local area. The cider was one of the best we have ever had, the food I had was just OK - everyone else was pleased with their choice though. Recommended.

This was our second visit to the Castle Inn (the first time being a few years ago when my husband and I had a really enjoyable meal). This time, to be fair, we were a group of seven who turned up without booking on a Friday night looking for food, and certainly we had tried three other places before this... More
