We stayed at the Dower House hotel for one night on our way home from 12 nights in Cornwall as my son is mad about dinosaurs and wanted to do the fossil walk. We had a warm welcome from Neil and Rosemary when we arrived at the hotel. They both came out personally to meet us and took the time... More

We stayed here for one night in the French Lieutenants room, which was absolutely fabulous. The bed was extremely comfy and we slept so well, the copper bath was amazing I didn't want to get out. Neil & Rosemarie we very welcoming and the breakfast was fab. Needless to say we will be coming back.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Dower House. Both of us and Sadie (our dog) were made to feel really welcome by all the staff. The room was comfortable and recently refurbished to a high standard. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend the hotel to friends.

This hotel catered extremely well both for truculent teenagers and a picky nonagenarian, plus me-in-the-middle. Mum's room was on the ground floor overlooking the swimming pool, and was large, very comfortable and delightfully fresh and clean. We tried three different rooms on the first floor (due to son moving and husband arriving) and all were nicely equipped, comfortable and large... More

Have just spent two nights at The Dower House near Lyme Regis. My husband and I were attending a 70th Birthday Party on the Sat. night and we decided to stay on the Friday as well. It was a wonderful two-day break and we really could not fault the hotel. Everything was simply excellent especially our room with a fab.... More

We spent 2 nights early August in this welcoming hotel situated a few miles out of Lyme Regis on the Dorset Devon border. Signposting meant we shot past it needing a swift u turn and when we arrived in the hotel we were met by the owner who gave us a warm welcome and a short introduction to the hotel,... More

Dower House has it all, great location from Lyme Regis (10 min drive) and has some great restaurants in some of the local villages. We stayed in one their suites, and the rooms were a good size, and comfortable. With some great quirks, the radiator painting! The breakfast was of a very high standard, and I had to work hard...

A really welcoming hotel. Our room wasn't huge but was really comfy and just the peaceful rural environment we needed. It's not the cheapest around but definitely worth paying a bit more for. Great breakfast too!

We booked a 2 day break recently and stayed in the smaller but comfortable Gould Room which had a good en-suite. It had a good view over the pool, gardens, surrounding countryside and out to the sea in the far distance. We enjoyed sitting with a glass of wine in the well-stocked bar and also outside large decked area on... More
