Very well run B&B central to Dorchester and amenities. Rooms were comfortable, beautifully clean and well decorated. We had a lovely view over Maiden Castle. Parking is adequate for the size of the establishment and easy to use. Lovely warm welcome and the breakfast choice was amazing. Thoughtful little touches like nice towels and a range of toiletries, choice of... More

We stayed two nights and found this B&B excellent. The rooms were spotlessly clean spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful - so many choices of cereals, marmalades and jams. The cooked breakfast was first class - obviously they use top quality produce. Would recommend to anyone who wants comfort and high standards.

This bed & breakfast hotel was perfect in all respects - but the breakfast were trul outstanding - what a choice! Could not ask for better - even comfortable on a stormy night in June - and the most amazing range of toiletries ever found in a hotel anywhere.!

I don't know if my reviews can do the Aquila Heights justice. We were staying in Room 5 a superior twin, a very large room with everything you could need, amazed at the number of wooden coat hangers in the spacious wardrobe. The bathroom was supplied with 6 full size shampoos, conditioners and shower gels. Every details was covered even... More

My daughter and I stayed here on Saturday 21st Feb to attend a wedding. We had informed the owner that we were travelling from afar and that would it be ok if we checked in early to get ready for the wedding. She was very accommodating and said as long as the room was ready, that was fine. A lovely... More

If you think the reviews for this hotel are too good to be true, then don't. It is as good as people say. I have just come back from another enjoyable stay. Food, rooms and general demeanour of this lovely little guest house are all perfect. Well done Joan! See you in January! Merry Christmas!

My fourth visit to this fantastic B and B, this time with a group of 5 friends. Beautiful rooms, scrumptious breakfasts and a log fire alight for us in the lounge every evening - we will be back!! Joan (the lovely landlady) even let us use the dining room in the evening for our Indian take away AND warmed our... More
