My husband and his friend were going to Tankfest in June, so I went onto the internet to find them a B&B, I booked with Booking.com, gave my card details and recieved a booking confirmation with the message saying the hotel 'may' debit my card £40, which was fine. A week before they were due to stay I recieved a... More

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.

Very comfortable, tastefully presented and well equipped. The owners are pleasant and helpful and provide an excellent breakfast! Within easy walk of the town centre. I would definitely stay here again.

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

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
