We stayed in the front room which was spacious, clean and well furnished. A very short walk took us to the main tourist sites in Dorchester. The... More

I booked this room for a short half term break in Dorset. My partner is quite fussy, and I am gluten free, so we wanted somewhere quiet, large-ish and comfortable, that would accept my dietary requirements. This B&B ticked all the boxes. Situated on a quiet road,opposite a little park, near enough to town to walk, it is well furnished.... More

Stayed two nights at Lantern House in early December 2014. Geoff and Pauline were very welcoming and arranged parking at rear and good local information. Room was spotless, spacious and quiet. Great breakfasts, served fresh and sourcing local produce. A lovely stay. Martin (Bedford)

The hosts were friendly and we were made very welcome. Our room was clean and comfortable with its own bathroom down the hall way. After a very enjoyable cooked breakfast the following morning we were able to see the two other bedrooms, which made us a little jealous as they were much bigger with en-suite facilities for just a couple...

This place was comfortable and centrally located in Dorechester. The hosts were friendly and let us park our car in their drive which was convenient. Breakfast was nice. A couple of little things could have been better about the place in my opinion 1. WiFi reception didn't reach the room particularly well 2. When the beds are pushed together to... More
