The welcome was warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble . The lunch menu had many choices and looked inviting. The food came and it was wonderful... More

This is a cosy little hotel in quiet Dorset. We received a warm welcome, on what was a very cold and gloomy day (for us!!)...after a lavish traditional English tea, we were treated to a wonderful meal in the restaurant. Breakfast was sumptuous and tasty and service throughout was attentive and efficient. Highly recommended.

The hosts were very accommodating and my room was spotless with stylish décor. Little touches such as home-made biscuits went the extra mile... Didn't eat but watched whilst food came out and it looked exquisite !!
