A warm welcome form Julienne, room was spotlessly clean, the bed was warm & comfortable, the choice for breakfast was just right. It is a short walk in to town & the harbour, but there is a good bus service if you don' t want to walk. Cannot find fault at all, would strongly recommend this guest house.

just returned from a 3 night break and found this hotel to be clean comfortable and well run. The breakfasts were tasty with plenty of options, well cooked and promptly served. Honesty bar in lounge and mini bar in room all at reasonable cost. We would recommend this hotel as a base to discover devon

We stayed at the guesthouse for two nights and it was everything we could have asked for. The room was spacious and clean and had a nice en-suite. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and the owner Julienne was very friendly, kind and helpful from the moment we arrived. We can't recommend the B&B highly enough and would definitely stay there... More

Stayed at hotel weekend 11th June. B&B was easy walking distance to town. We had a larger room, was extremely spacious and bright. Plenty of choice for breakfast, great to have so many options over a full English breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying here.

FABULOUS!!! Just stayed 5 nights at the Dorchester and wish we could have stayed forever. The guest house is very easy to find with private off road parking and is in a good location just a short walk from town. Julienne was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. She also gave us... More

Hotel is on the main road so it's easy to find, with ~4 parking spaces out the front. We were greeted warmly and the decor inside was fresh and clean. Lounge had a bar, snacks and there was a large DVD collection for our perusal! Superior double room; really nice, fresh, bed was LARGE and really comfortable mattress. Shower worked... More

My second visit, and once again my short stay was well catered for. The attention to detail for a B&B is fabulous, including a jug of fresh milk in the fridge in the rooms - how I hate those little plastic containers! The reception from Julienne is very friendly, and the house clean, tidy and attractively decorated. There's a bus... More
