I was required to spend some time in Dorchester back in March.accommodation options are somewhat Limited in Dorchester but I found the bay tree house to be a very welcoming and pleasant guest house for the duration of my stay. I was in one of the rooms which had a shared bathroom but this was no problem. I understand there... More

Nothing was too much trouble :-) We were able to have an early check-in which was very much appreciated. There was no traffic noise and the room was nicely decorated with all the required facilities and bits and bobs. Wi-Fi was excellent (fast). The breakfast........fantastic - fresh fruit, juices, cereals and one of the best cooked breakfasts I've had in... More

Described as 'Superb' on a well known booking website, at a very reasonable nightly rate and in a town that broke my journey nicely- this was maybe too good to be true! The Bay Tree Hotel however, lived up to it's rating! Friendliness, Appointment, Comfortableness and the breakfast- all excellent! I loved the fine breakfast served around a large table... More

We were welcomed with a pot of tea and biscuits - something rare in a B&B! The room was clean, quite well decorated and a good size. Gary, the owner, offered us a pot of tea and said if we had any questions to think of them for when he returned. We wanted to know where to eat so Gary... More

I stayed there for one night this past week while on business trip there and was not disappointed! The B&B is conveniently located not to far outside the city center and close proximity to a lot of pubs and restaurants. The Place itself was very clean and very quaint. My room was room #2 and the room was actually more... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Tree House. Gary looked after us very well and provided an excellent breakfast each morning of our five-day stay. The room was light and sunny and parking was easy. There are three spaces with additional spaces in the street when the on-site spots were taken.

We stayed here while visiting the Tank Museum last weekend. I wish we could have stayed longer though! We were given a warm welcome and enjoyed a nice cup of tea. The room was spacious, clean and homely. Comfortable beds and very quiet. Gorgeous bathroom with a massive bath and lots of complimentary toiletries. The breakfast was HUGE! All freshly... More

Had a lovely stay for 2 nights. The owners were away and we were looked after by "nana" and she was really super. The breakfast was to a very high standard better than expected. Very friendly beds very comfortable. We will most likely return

The owner rang me an hour before my husband was due to arrive on a sales trip to cancel the room. I had paid via expedia thank goodness. He refused to acknowledge the room was paid for and said he had a right to a life and he didnt stay infront of his computer all day. Very very rude, and... More

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
