We stayed for 1 night and found our room at the top to be very comfortable and decked out in a very fun "fishing" theme. The breakfast in a hamper delivered to your room was delicious and much better than a cooked option in a dining room and suited our vegetarian requirements.The receptionist was friendly and welcoming. The reason why... More

Just returned from a lovely, if too short, break at Hix Townhouse. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived. Beautiful well thought out room, (The Garden Room) lots of additions that you would not normally find in a B&B, excellent coffee machine, radio, bath robes & slippers, spotlessly clean, which opens up onto a perfect...

Stayed here while on a 4 day River Cottage cooking course. Stay in room 5 for the second time that has a sea view and it is desperately in need of some TLC. The bed is great, big & comfortable. The carpet and decor are both in need of a change (which I understand will happen in the future). As... More

Thought we would give this hotel a try as we hadn't stayed before, its really fun with quirky rooms that are decorated in a funky style , there is a lovely kitchen to help yourself to coffee, tea etc and a fantastic terrace at the back to enjoy the warm summer nights. Breakfast ( a hamper brought to your room)... More

Stayed at the Hix Guesthouse with a family of 4 at the start of the summer season. My partner and I enjoyed the gardening themed room whilst my partners parents had a room above us. Both rooms were beautifully decorated, although both were a little dark. It seems each room has a little extra to offer than your usual B&B... More

We spent the night here when in the area visiting the River Cottage. It looks like it has been recently decorated and it was immaculate, each room was different and had it's own unique charm. We stayed on the top floor, the bedroom room was spacious, bathroom luxurious, there was a little dining room and lots of other nooks and... More

Stayed here when it was 1 Lyme and it was a great place to stay. Booked for the weekend just gone without realising it had changed hands and was now Hix, and then read some really awful reviews and was worried! Pleasantly surprised, Lorraine rung us on route to see what time we were likely to arrive and to make... More

Basically, the owner of this bed and breakfast needs to re-think his vision and either spend some time sleeping in this property or listen to his critics. Before I list my constructive comments, I want to commend the two manageresses of this establishment, Viv and Lorraine. They were so welcoming and helpful; many thanks for your input. You are a...

So much was wrong with our stay, it's difficult to know where to start. We arrived having received a number of calls to my mobile, as we travelled to Lime Regis, from an unknown number. When we tried to answer these calls, no one was there and no voice messages were left. Calling the number back simply took us to... More

Mark Hix now owns and is undertaking a refurbishment - the rooms are totally individual and fun - the breakfast hamper is very well put together. Very well located, but you need to fairly mobile to walk up the hill to the car park! I am sure it will be stunning when finished, the refurbishment doesn't Get in the way... More
