Attentive, friendly, conscientious, clean, warm, well appointed, excellent value. More detail? The twin bedroom was not en-suite but not far from the facilities which included a spacious tiled bath and shower room with deep relaxing bath. Oops forgot the relaxing part! The bedroom was big enough to spread out and feel comfortable; decent internet connection as well. The breakfast spread... More

We stayed at the Baytree bed-and-breakfast over the New Year's Eve weekend. And had the best New Year's Eve ever. We had come to Dorchester to spend New Year's Eve with family. After a quiet family meal in a local restaurant and the usual glass of bubbly at midnight returned to the Bay Tree shortly after midnight As we entered... More

If you are planning a relaxing visit to Dorchester on a budget then this is the place to stay. The owners were very pleasant and informative. Our room was on the road side of the building and was very peaceful. The room was by, English standards, large but what the room lacked in size was made up by the creature... More

We booked a room here to serve as a base while we explored Dorset and had a great time. The breakfasts were delicious and quite varied, our host was very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the TV in our room, since it rose up from the foot of the bed. Cool.

We stayed here on a Friday night and booked a double, twin, and single room. All the rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. I was in the single room which was pretty spacious although anyone much bigger than me might have had a bit of a problem getting into the shower cubicle and to the loo which was wedged... More

A friendly welcome , lovely cosy room ( very impressed to find an iron and ironing board , although didn't use it ) Breakfast offered an excellent choice including fresh fruit.

The host was welcoming and helpful. As the weather was very mild the duvet was too hot so we requested a sheet. The owner went out and bought one which was good. Our bedroom (room 2) was well decorated and quite clean. However, the bathroom was badly in need of refurbishment. The shower fitting was loose, water damage to skirting... More

We stayed here last night as we were on a late ferry from Jersey. What a lovely place. Room was lovely and clean. Very helpful as we were arriving late we were left a key and a note to ask when we wanted breakfast. The breakfast was fantastic. Lots of choice and well cooked. Would definitely use again if we...

I stayed in the twin room one night with my 4yo daughter. As others have said, it is very clean, the owner is welcoming and breakfast was nice. However, I wish that I had realised that the twin room's bathroom was down the corridor rather than en-suite, which wasn't ideal with my daughter who thus couldn't go on her own... More
