We have just returned from our annual "Walking Weekend" on the Dorset coast. We were a party of 8 that stayed at the Durbeyfield on the weekend of the 5th-7th of June. The staff were excellent and always eager to please. We dined in on the Friday and everyone ordered across an extensive range of choices. Generous portions. I recommend... More

We initially booked for 2 nights but the room was so bad we could only stay one. The staff were lovely and friendly and the food good but the room needed a good deep clean and refurb. The bedding was clean and I cleaned the bathroom myself with flash wipes that I went out and bought. The dining room had... More

Stayed at Durbyfield in April this year for 3nites and loved the family atmosphere. They couldn't do enough for me and were constantly concerned i went on my day without breakfast! A brewed coffee was always awaiting me in the mornings. Such was their care that one morning as i waited for my ride a seagull pooped on my clothes.... More

Having read some negative reviews I have to say that my one night stay here was perfectly acceptable and very good value. Yes the decor is tired: yes the carpets were a bit grubby but the welcome was warm, the staff welcoming and jolly, the hotel is slap bang in the middle of West Bay and provides free parking. I...

There's a pretty mixed bag of reviews for the Durbeyfield so we weren't sure what to expect but as we had only booked for one night, we thought we would give it a go. Many of the less flattering reviews focus on the tired decor and to be honest, our room was in need of a good bit of TLC... More

I have the good fortune to stay at Durbeyfield once every six weeks or so while visiting a relative in the area. I am always welcomed very warmly by all the staff and feel very comfortable being there on my own. The beds are comfortable and I always get a good night's sleep. The rooms and bathrooms are full of... More

It was with some trepidation, having read previous reviews, that I telephoned for a booking at the Durbyfield. However I was pleasantly surprised by the warm feeling I got from my initial contact. However on arrival at Easter, the reviews of poor accommodation proved correct. The building isn't just tired, it was fast asleep and snoring. The corridors dark with... More

I always enjoy staying at the Durbyfield. I stay twice a year and I find it a home from home. I have met some new friends since staying here and I find the staff are nice and friendly. I would recommend staying here as it's a two minute walk to the beach. Also I enjoy the breakfast and find I... More

Typical UK seaside hotel old worn out scruffy fixtures and fittings, Smallest double bed I've ever seen, however the shower closet and toilet were even smaller. I wish I had walked away rather than given it a go. The scruffy worn out entrance carpet told me what is was going to be like. The bar area is small and worn... More

We are very sorry that Robert did not enjoy his stay with us but must admit to being suprised by what he says. He rang quite late to request accomodation for Easter weekend and was told that the only room available was a standard double with small en suite shower room. He agreed to take it knowing of what it... More
