Stayed here with a wedding party and although the current owners are new to the business they are naturals. Its not the biggest place but that's the nature of accomodation in this part of the world. Highly recommended for it's friendly approach.

We absolutely adored our short break at Dower House Hotel. It's a gorgeous country house, just a quick 5 minute drive outside Lyme Regis, with delighful well kept gardens and grounds and an outdoor swimming pool, with a sweeping gravel driveway for easy parking for many cars. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, tidy, spacious and airy, with a modern... More

We often ate in the hotel as we have a 2 year old daughter and were delighted with the high quality food for supper and lunch. The hotel is beautifully situated very close to Lyme Regis surrounded by wonderfully kept lawns... More

Me and my husband have just returned from a one night's stay here, and I must say it was lovely. We were in room 10 and the room was beautifully furnished with the most fluffy towels I have used!! The bed was lovely and comfortable and there was a choice of pillows. Everything spotlessly clean. The house is set in... More

My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel. The owners were very thoughtful and, while not obtrrusive, were always there to assist and enquire as to our needs and comfort. We could not fault a thing. The room was large and very well appointed, the bed was wonderfully comfortable and all the extras were of a high quality.... More
