Stayed at annelsey house for 1 night in November. What a neat place, it felt like you were stepping back in time whilst still having all the mod cons. Tea selection and free port were a lovely added touch. Highly recommended if your staying in Portland!

What a pleasure to arrive in Portland to find this delightful house. Renovated with great attention to detail our group wandered around each of the sitting rooms to find the historical artefacts and read the story of Dr Brewer the original owner. We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment, with a kitchen with all items necessary plus a few luxury... More

My husband and I stayed one night in October 2014 in the BayTree Room at Annesley House in Portland. It was a lovely place to stay. The room was very tastefully furnished and decorated and had everything we needed. The 'piece de resistance' was the amazing bathroom with a huge old cast-iron bath which was just the thing to relax... More

Really enjoyed our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The house is lovely with high ceilings and charm. My only piece of advice would be to update the fridge; had to fight to close the door with a add on latch and install an electric oven; I wasn't comfortable lighting the gas oven with matches. None of... More

A beautiful, character filled home away from home. Great attention to detail with special teas and treats - most appreciated after a long drive and busy schedule! Will definitely be back with the family and more time to spend enjoying this wonderful treasure!

We stayed in the housekeepers cottage for two nights in July. What a beautifully renovated cottage it is. It was cosy, quiet and private, with its own courtyard. I recommend a stay here for couples to enjoy a holiday in style.

Lovely quirky rooms and a very helpful and accommodating host. We arrived a little late and requested a room change to one that would better suit our bub. Nothing was a problem. Loved the old style bath.

We stayed in the Wadmore room. This was quirky but very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the period furnishings were very well suited to the room. Mark was a very nice host ably assisted by his long haired dachshund. The location was great, right in the centre of town. The little extras such as special tea, biscuits and... More

If you like quirky without comfort, then this 'honeymoon suite' is for you. A weird bath and basin stuck in the corner of the bedroom, with absolutely nowhere to even place a toothbrush let alone a makeup bag, is just one thing. Not even a bedside table for a book, or clock, or glass of whatever takes your fancy. Yes,... More

Annesley House is a really special place, with an unique story going back to 1878. Your stay will also be special, and probably more interesting if you like old buildings with a stories to tell. I'm sure your host, Mark, will be happy to tell Annesley's secrets. We stayed for one night in Dr. Brewer's apartment which was both very... More
