I booked this as we couldnt seem to find anything reasonably priced for one night and stupidly didn't look at the reviews on trip advisor. We arrived at 6.00 pm on Friday 2 may and were in a hurry to meet friends before going to the rugby. We were shown to the dirtiest room I've ever seen. Dusty. Cobwebs. Dirty... More

Everything in this B & B was dirty, dated and appallingly amateurish. The portrait of Queen Victoria and other delights kept reminding you you were in Britain and therefore not to expect too much in terms of hospitality and service. But that was beyond the joke.This place had not been properly cleaned for years and probably furnished from a charity... More

We arrived at 6:30pm, the reception was already closed, I couldn't believe it, I never stayed in a place where there is no one to receive you. Everything is self-service, we paid 55 pound for the room, and they charged 2 pound for paying by debt card. We called the service number but no one answered the phone! The breakfast... More

Filthy dirty rooms, months of dust and cobwebs, glasses that stuck to the table at breakfast and bathroom filthy! Please, don't go there, you will be appalled! If we could have found anywhere else to stay last night we would... More

My husband and I were travelling through Europe and stayed in alot of b and b's. The Dorset Villa was the absolute worse and after booking on line then actually seeing it in person immediately cancelled and looked elsewhere. It was filthy, run down and no one there to greet us.

Hallway dark, dingy and dusty. Taken to room at top of house, carpets all the way up the stairs dirty and dusty. Entered the... More

No welcome (the owner was out and the door open). Dirty carpets. No soap or bathmats. Stingy with the towels. Precisely two sachets of tea/coffee etc in the rooms - mean. Dirty water glasses. Horrifically uncomfortable bed with lumpy mattress and thin pillows. We barely slept. Very overheated and if we opened the window we had the noise of the... More
