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

We had two nights at Dower House, booked direct after looking for "luxury" B&B in the Lyme Regis area. Well, we were not disappointed we had a fabulous room with bathroom and a small longer area, access to the garden. Neil and Rosemarie were both very welcoming, the breakfasts were first class, they booked us cabs to take us into... More

We've just come back from a 3 night stay in Room 11 at this lovely, small hotel. Welcome was really good - while there is no actual reception desk, after ringing the bell, we were greeted very quickly and shown to our room. We had room 11 which had it's own entrance, patio area and sitting room. The location of... More

Thank you for your comments Louise and your suggestions. Rosemarie and myself are pleased you enjoyed your stay. In terms of the room you stayed in we will be installing a built in wardrobe this winter and will be addressing some of the finishing touches in the room as well. The room is adjacent to our kitchen and it is... More

Neil was very welcoming but the room was in need of some updating; a lick of paint on the radiator, and water damage very evident on the ceiling of the bathroom. The glass door from the bathroom through to the bedroom wasn't really appreciated. Breakfast lovely but where were the menus? You end up making a best guess as to... More

Thank you for your comments Tom, we appreciate your feedback. Rosemarie and myself have now owned the hotel for 6 months and after a first very busy summer season are now planning a renovation this coming winter which will address your comments on the decoration and glass door in the room that you stayed in. We know you have stayed... More
