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

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

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
