Stayed for one night on motorcycle tour, easy location for town centre, excellent room (bit small but perfect for short stay). Joan is a great hostess who cooks a simply superb breakfast that kept me going until dinner.Great value.

Only stayed one night. Lovely lady who runs the place Joan made us very welcome and was helpful about places to eat in town. Comfy bed (room 3) slept like a log. great choice for breakfast and cooked fresh to order so you have to wait a little while but boy, it is worth the wait. Don't have any reservations... More

We had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights due to needing to be close by for a wedding. As a family of 2 adults and 2 children we chose this B&B in preference to booking 2 seperate rooms at a nearby hotel and we are so glad we did! We booked the downstairs garden room which is effectively... More

We received a very warm welcome at this lovely B&B, on the fringe of central Dorchester, that has on-site parking (a real bonus). We had a good sized twin room that was clean, comfortable and had lots of little extra touches – tissues, cotton wool, a good hairdryer, an excellent tea & coffee try (with lots of other choices available)....

We had 4 nights in room 5, a lovely stay with a good location within Dorchester. An excellent breakfast was prepared by the host Joan. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Excellent room with loads of tea/coffee and biscuits.

I stayed one night in June and the first thing to say is thank you Joan for being incredibly understanding and patient with me as unfortunate circumstances meant my plans kept changing. Aquila Heights is a B&B in the traditional style - it just seems to be so well run it does it better than most. I'm sure she's far... More

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.!

This has got to be one of the best B & B's that we have stayed at. The rooms are lovely and bathrooms are equipped with lots of different shampoos, shower gels etc. Joan the owner is a really lovely, kind and helpful person. Her guests really matter to her and she will go out of her way to offer... More
