We have just had a really lovely two night break at The Dower House in Rousden. Rosemarie and Neil are without doubt the best hoteliers in the area. Warm and friendly - without being intrusive, kind and caring. We had a lovely room with the biggest bed with beautiful white crisp linen. Breakfast orders were taken by Neil and cooked... More

In a nutshell a wonderful old property in a good location, utilised as an hotel with a licensed bar. A lovely owner (Rosemary) who is trying to make her mark in the hospitality business. The restaurant being available if required, but really no need as the hotel is located centrally between Lyme Regis and Seaton, and has a glut of... More

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

The new owners are keen on making a good impression and their greeting was very welcoming but this could not detract from the rest of our stay.The room was OK, and appeared to be clean although one of the glasses in the bathroom had definite signs of previous use (toothpaste residue) and there...

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
