Stayed here for three nights. Neil and Rosemarie were excellent hosts. Made us feel most welcome. The room was excellent, clean and tidy and modernised. The furniture was not usual tat but all of good quality. The breakfast was excellent and there were no cores in the tomatoes (In house joke). Many thanks for three excellent nights. If in vicinity...

My sister had her wedding here last weekend. Most of the family stayed for the weekend. I stayed with my two children in room 9. The room was a lovely size and the bathroom was huge. There was plenty of tea making facilities and Rosemarie made sure that the biscuits were kept stocked up for my youngest. The atmosphere is... More

Met Neil and Rosemarie at Dower House Hotel. We got the full tour of all rooms, very impressive but our favourite was the stand alone dog friendly annex, but this might be something to do with our lurchers

The warm greeting we had on arrival set the tone for this weekend break. Rosemarie and Neil, the proprietors, clearly like people and do whatever they can to make the stay as close to what you want as possible, from stocking the coffee machine in the room with the coffee you like to booking taxis to ordering newspapers. The room... More

For the price the Dower House is excellent. OK the rooms are not luxurious, but they are clean and comfortable and do not cost the earth. The friendly welcome however exceeds anything you would get from any hotel at any price. Rosemarie goes out of the way to make you feel welcome without being intrusive. We really enjoyed our weekend... More

The only thing that prevents me from giving the Dower House full marks was the slightly jaded facilities, our bathroom was somewhat dated (but imaculatey clean) and the shower was weak at best, other than this our stay was perfection, the huge bed was very comfortble. The bar has a warm friendly atmosphere where guests are encouraged to mix. Rosmarie... More

This was our first visit to the area and we could not have chosen a better base for our four night stay. Neil and Rosemarie were wonderful hosts - very warm and welcoming. How refreshing it was to be known by name and not by some anonymous room number! The room was very comfortable (we had the ground floor suite)... More

I was looking for somewhere to stay for a week just to chill and catch my breath from a very difficult year and I could not have chosen better with the Dower House. I received a lovely friendly greeting from Neil and Rosemarie when I arrived, my room was lovely, I was staying on my own and never at any... More

We only had one night in the Dower house Hotel but when we go back to Lyme Regis this will be the first place we try and book up. The location and room was very good. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked in to the time we checked out. We only had the breakfast but... More

We stayed one Saturday night recently. This large house is about 10 minutes out of Lyme Regis on the main road, but easy to find. The owners are very friendly and greet you on arrival and try to help out if you ask them for anything. This is an old house but with character, unlike the sanitised premier inns etc.... More
