Stayed for one night last week, my colleague at work found it for me and booked me in at the last minute. I was greeted at the front door by the owner Gareth who kindly took my bags to my room, I was offered a cup of tea or coffee right away which I didn't have but thought it was... More

As soon as I arrived I was greeted with a much needed cup of tea and some biscuits by the owner. The room was spacious, clean and had everything I needed including reliable wifi. Breakfast was equally impressive with a wide variety of food to choose from. I would stay there again for business or leisure.

We spent two nights in this well appointed b&b. Modern rooms with a large converted extension with a big round communal breakfast table overlooking courtyard/ garden.. The owners keep dogs and a sizeable parrot Our bedroom was fine but if you have the choice look around for size and natural light as they all seem different. Quiet at night with... More

This was a perfect place to stay for a night when visiting the Dorset coast. The owner was very friendly and cooked a great breakfast with lots of choice. The rooms were clean and stylish. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Dorchester or the surrounding area.

Haven't actually stayed at this property but wanted to do so for a friend's upcoming wedding, at said friend's glowing recommendation. Reserved the room online, no problem. Phone call a few days later saying the room had been double booked and I could no longer keep my reservation. No apology, no offer of suggestions for somewhere else similar to stay.... More

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
