We stayed at Aquila Heights Guest House for one night as we were attending a function in Dorchester. Joan made us extremely welcome and our bedroom (No.5) was a huge room and very comfortable. Everything you could possibly need in the room was provided with loads of choice of shower gels, shampoos etc. The breakfast choice was immerse starting with... More

The bedroom we had was very pleasant with views over Maiden Castle and Hardy's monument. Both the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, warm and spacious (we had room 3 upstairs). There are plenty of toiletries and a wide choice of tea and coffee in the room and at breakfast. The full English breakfast is filling and tasty, and there... More

A trip from NZ with my daughter cumulated in a fantastic reunion with my oldest friend and her daughter in the wonderful Aquila Heights. It felt like home from home - we were welcomed, cared for without being fussed over and there was absolutely every amenity available. The attention to detail makes a stay here superb. The location is ideal,... More

I loved my stay at Aquila Heights! Joan, the landlady, treats her guests like family members and she is always ready to help: she came to pick me up at the train station (a very pleasant surprise, since I was wondering where to find a taxi) and she provided me with tons of information about the local curiosities and the...

This guesthouse was airy and clean and our room overlooked the countryside in the distance. The residential neighborhood was quiet. The walk into town took about 20-25 min. with busy streets that we found difficult to cross. There may be an easier way to walk that we were unaware of.

A warm welcome, very clean and a comfortable night. Slightly surreal breakfast with a very comprehensive range of cereals/jams/spreads and an excellent cooked breakfast. Separate toilet/shower in the single room not a problem.

Have stayed at Aquila Heights a couple of times now - both for two nights. First time spent one night in double room and second in single (husband in hospital). Second time no single room available so spent two nights in double. Made very welcome and was grateful for interest and interaction while spending second night on my own. Breakfasts... More

Staying at the Aquila was a pleasure from start to finish. The online booking system was a doddle to use, I paid via paypal and had the confirmations back in a flash. I arrived on a Saturday evening, dusty and sunburnt after attending Tankfest, and was wrmly greeted by Joan, who had just moved her car to ensure that I... More
