Although I only stayed for 1 night on business, I have determined to stay again if ever in the area. In common with other reviews, I have the highest praise for the owners, Pat and Gerry. From arrival to departure they were friendly, obliging, helpful, informative and did everything possible to help me settle in, with minimum fuss and maximum... More

We spent 5 nights B & B at Portman Lodge with Par & Gerry the most welcoming of hosts. We were well looked after in very comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts, with Portman Lodge located close to many places of interest in beautiful Dorset including of course Blandford Forum. Hope to return sometime in the future as Pat & Gerry make... More

We have just come back from a two-night stay at the Portman Lodge. I chose it because it was very conveniently close to family in Dorset, and what an excellent choice. From now on, no more trawling the Internet for somewhere to stay -- this will be the place! Pat and Gerry are the perfect hosts. As soon as we... More

My wife's maiden name is Blandford, although extensive searching by her aunts/uncles has failed to find a direct link to Blandford Forum. So we just went to visit what the guidebook said was a "cute Edwardian town". Fortunately, we booked our B&B with Pat and Gerry Judd at Portman Lodge. We alluded to the story, and they were off planning... More

We stayed here for a friend's wedding and found Pat and Gerry most welcoming, always happy to help with a smile. The room was very clean and in good condition, breakfast was generous and it's only a short walk downhill to the town centre. Also, unlike some of the other places here, you aren't forced into a minimum two night... More

We were looking to stay in Blandford Forum for one night, with our two Golden Retrievers as we were visiting Bournemouth Championship dog show, and found Portman Lodge to be the best B & B we have ever been to. A very clean and tidy room with modern bathroom en suite, brilliant hosts and ten minutes walk to the town.... More

We stayed at Portman Lodge when attending a friend's 'milestone' birthday party recently in Blandford Forum. The rooms are beautifully furnished and the bathroom was spacious and modern, with a wonderful walk in shower ... this is not your average B&B. Gerry and Pat make the whole experience one to remember and as others have commented the breakfast (particularly after... More

Pat, Gerry and Lizzy gave us such a warm welcome. We could not fault the service, the room, the cleanliness or the breakfast.Great nights sleep due to the quality of the beds. Great value for money. Highly recommended.
