Bedrooms are extremely well appointed, lovely comfortable beds and the bathrooms are simply stunning. Breakfast is excellent, simply nothing to complain about, a lovely... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights for a long weekend in Devon. As all other reviewers have said, Rosemarie and Neil are such lovely hosts and they really looked after us. All facilities are spotless. We enjoyed the pool, and the kids had a run around in the large garden. Bed was most comfy. We stayed at the... More

The Dower House is conveniently located for Lyme Regis and surrounding areas. We stayed in the main building in a most pleasant, clean room over-looking the gardens and pool. Rosemarie and Neil were very helpful as they organised taxis and made restaurant recommendations. Decoration and furnishing a little dated and dark, but on the whole the perfect place if you're...

We stayed just for one night but I cannot praise the hotel highly enough. Neil and Rosemary were perfect hosts and made us feel welcome right from the start. The room was immaculate and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, and there was a very happy feel about the place. We couldn't try the pool as... More

We were celebrating my birthday with all the family that is 9 adults and 4 children. We had arranged to look at the rooms before our stay at which time all the rooms were under massive redecoration. On arrival the new rooms exceeded our expectations. They were all fantastic although my husband and I bagged the French Lieutenants room which... More

Spent a very relaxing weekend at the Dower House. Lovely room and whole hotel very comfortable and welcoming. Shame about the weather but they can't fix everything. The hotel is very close to Lyme Regis which can be reached in 5 minutes easily by car. It is also close to Axmouth, Seaton and Beer. Beer is especially nice.

Neil and Rosemarie are the most wonderful hosts. They are so welcoming, friendly and helpful, yet run the hotel very professionally. The hotel, grounds and location are beautiful and peaceful. The rooms (we had 3 in total) were all modern and beautifully appointed with luxurious bathrooms. A small friendly hotel with a lot of luxury thrown in - not least... More
