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

After visiting 1 Lyme Townhouse before in the not too distant past, we were really excited and expecting great things. We knew our experience wasn't going to be matched as soon as we arrived - we were met by a girl who was unenthusiastic and didn't tell us anything about the room, carpark, breakfast, check out times etc, we were...

Just what we needed - wanted to recharge on a weekend break, and had a lovely stay in the hotel. Arrived in the evening, but had no problems getting into the room, thanks to good instructions. Room 8 is at the back of the house and really quiet (the only sound is the breakfast hamper preparation in the morning). Entrance... More

We spent one night here in Room 6, recently decorated and immaculate with a really quirky 'fishing' theme complete with puffer fish lampshade! We were given very clear instructions about what to do if we arrived when no one was there to check us in and this was no problem. The breakfast hamper was great, included freshly baked savoury muffins,... More

We stayed in Suite 4 on the top floor. The common areas are shabby and dirty- stained stair carpet and flaking paint. The suite was a period and split level however the conversion was done on the cheap and our headboard backed on to Room 5's bathroom, and with a thin stud partition wall we could hear every ablution!

We had room No 8 which we understand is a recent addition. We went for this place as it was part of a dine at Mark Hix's place offer (see separate review re meal). Booking was straightforward and any questions promptly answered. The Garden room was a good size with a little hallway where we could hang up coats and... More

The website has employed the most amazing photographer! The hotel ( not that I would call it this more of a room only basis). I am afraid Mr Hix needs to shut it's doors and give the whole place a jolly good clean and bring in the builders and then re-open it. The room: Paid £120, no heating working in... More
