We stayed for just one night at The Dower House Hotel (sadly) but we will definitely be back for more.......... As a couple with two young sons, nights away are a rareity but this did not disappoint! We were off to The River Cottage on the Saturday for a cookery course (brilliant btw) and so needed a place to stay... More

What a wonderful place. The Hosts - Rosemary and Ian greet you like returning guests although this was our first stay. Beautiful rooms - really comfy beds and a cracking breakfast - what more do you need from a night in a hotel... Most definitely stay again...

Myself and Mrs Astute stayed at the Dower House a couple of weeks ago for two days as part of a short break. We found the hotel on the internet and a quick check on Trip Adviser and then a phone call. The hotel is set in rolling countryside with stunning views in to the distance. We were made most... More

The Hotel is run by a lovely couple who immediately make you feel at home and relaxed and almost like long lost friends. All the rooms are very comfortable, roomy, well equipped and extremely clean. The house has great character, views and grounds. The outdoor swimming pool will be great in the Summer. The bar is about to be refurbished... More

If you want the best then forget the rest, we found this gem of an hotel with fabulous hospitality and a beautiful place to chill out. The owners went out of their way to help us and we found nothing was to much bother for them to make our stay comfortable. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and... More

A glowing welcome from the owners. The room and bathroom was tastefully decorated, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We found the hotel well situated, relaxing, friendly environment and can think of nothing negative to say. Breakfast was lovely ...if I could I would add access to good coffee machine, as I am one of those people that has trouble waking... More

Having had a stressful year we needed a break which had to include the dogs. We found Dowler House which had great reviews; they were not wrong or understated. From the booking taken by Neil to the welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay we were treated warmly & professionally; nothing was too much trouble for Neal & Rosemarie.... More

Second visit to the Dower House Hotel this year and it did not disappoint. Neil & Rosemarie are wonderful hosts with great staff. We spent a number of nights over the New Year and had a lovely time. The rooms are very comfortable and stylish, best nights sleep I have had. Location is great, very easy to get into Lyme... More

Super faultless stay! Very comfortable and the bathroom a real treat! Rosemary and Neil just couldn't do enough! Accommodate us with veggie breakfast and offered coffee and toast whilst we waited for the AA van to turn up when our car wouldn't start after we had checked out.

For our daughter's 18th birthday we booked the hotel and our friends and family joined us for the most incredible weekend. From the first moment we spoke to Neil and Rosemarie we realised we had made the right choice and we could not have asked for more. The rooms were superb, the food was great and the service was excellent... More
