Our first visit to Dower House and we were the first visitors since the new owners took over. Judging by recent reviews the new owners have a difficult act to follow. No problem at all, my family and I were thoroughly pampered, the new owners and their team are fantastic. Attention to detail and little finishing touches made us feel... More

Alastair greeted us, rooms were all great, comfy beds with toppers, each with ensuites that seem to have had revamps recently certainly ours room no5, was very pleasant. Shower - hot water and adequate flow of water. All clean. Our... More

My third visit to the Dower House and have always had a better than average experience. Superb location in the quiet countryside, yet convenient to Lyme and the coast. Very nice rooms, terrific breakfast and great hosts. Looking forward to our next visit.

Pleasant, friendly and comfortable with an excellent breakfast and fantastic hosts, easy to find and well located for accessing local area being only 4 miles from Lyme Regis and park and ride just up the road. Just one tip dont use the garage in Rousdon for petrol as very expensive, use the Tesco superstore in Seaton

We went for a weekend to Lyme Regis area. The hotel is around 3 miles (5 mins drive) from Lyme Regis. It is well looked after and nicely decorated. Our room had a deluxe king size four poster bed which was lovely. It was very clean and the guy who runs it was very friendly. Breakfast was great and plentiful.... More

We had been staying in Cornwall in self catering lodgings the week before and my husband thought it would be a nice idea to spend a couple of nights relaxing in a hotel at the end of our holiday. The room was clean, and we had a very nice refitted en suite bathroom. There were three of us in the... More

We had booked online as a last minute accommodation choice. When we arrived the lady took ages to answer the reception bell and then looked surprised why we were there. I informed her we had booked online and she commented that she had not checked the emails and it was the latest anyone had ever checked in (it was 7.30)... More

These guests booked via a third party website and arrived within minutes of the email confirmation being sent to us. We did wonder if they had been sitting in our car park when they made the reservation. We check our emails on a regular basis and did not suggest otherwise. Had they phoned us direct we would have been able... More

My husband booked this hotel as a surprise for our 3rd anniversary having been swayed by the website. Externally the property looks lovely and the grounds are beautifully tidy. We also liked Dave the dog! First impressions internally were disappointing. I maintained enthusiasm as I didn't want to disappoint my husband, The decor is clean and bright, the bed was... More

We chose the Dower House Hotel for our annual weekend get together with old friends. The website promised all we wanted in terms of amenities and location. We arrived a 3pm and were suprisingly told that check-in was not until 4pm although the lady did allow us into our room. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with excellent beds.... More
