We stayed here for the May day weekend and thought that the place was excellent. Everything was good quality and no corners are cut. The breakfast was of the highest quality, and nothing is too much trouble for Pauline and Geoff, the proprietors In the bedroom, the bed is very comfortable, the room was spotless. We were in the green... More

This is a large Edwardian house which is within a short walk of Dorchester town centre. I was welcomed on arrival by my friendly host and taken up to my room, the Green Room. This is on the first floor at the rear of the house. It has the usual facilities – en-suite shower, tea/coffee making (very nicely presented). The... More

I loved staying here, the owner went above and beyond to be of assistance to me. My room was always immaculate, with a freshly made bed and emptied bins. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, my en-suite bathroom was immaculate, though the shower was lacking in water pressure that certainly didn't take away from my experience as a whole. The house...

The breakfast had lots of choice of fresh produce and a super cooked breakfast. The hosts came into to speak with us both and... More

Great hosts, great rooms, everything clean and tidy, breakfast is spot on. Needed winter quilt on as was cold in the night, parking at rear on road (limited spaces) could be a problem if arriving late,

Geof and Pauline made us feel truly at home, such charming hosts. The house was characterful, warm and a delight. The garden was well maintained and such a pleasant addition. Everything was clean and tidy. Parking at the rear was a boon. Breakfast was all you would wish for, ranging from yoghurt, fresh fruit and cereal, to toast and a... More

We stayed in The Lantern House in May 2013 so I do apologise for the late review. This was our second stay here so this speaks for itself. Geoff and Pauline were great and made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. The rooms are excellent, breakfast excellent and were able to park the car at the rear... More

Our stay at the Lantern House was outstanding and we couldn't have asked for more. The room was extremely comfortable with a king sized bed, en-suite and additional seating area. The bed was extremely comfortable and a summer duvet meant we weren't too warm as the weather at the time was humid (a fan was also provided in the room).... More
