When travelling through Dorset we came to stay at St Martin's House in charming Blandford Forum. This is a small B&B run by a couple, Caroline and Steve, giving a feeling of coming home to some old friends. The house is spacious, tidy and nicely decorated. The bathroom was admittedly across the corridor, but reserved for our room only and... More

Dear Mats Thank you so much for taking the trouble to review your stay with us. It is much appreciated. As you note, one does not have the advantage of an en-suite bathroom when staying at St Martin's House, but our decision not to install en-suite facilities was based solely upon the fact that, in our opinion, it would detract...

From the moment we arrived, we could not have asked for a better stay. Caroline and Steven gave us a generous and genuine welcome, which immediately makes you feel at home. The double room and private bathroom were spacious, spotlessly clean, and filled with all and more of the usual accessories, but the sumptuous bed was supremely comfortable. For breakfast... More

Dear D and D All I can say is that the pleasure is all ours! We are so lucky to have such lovely guests and I'm only glad that we had availability when you called. Our blackbirds and sparrows continue to serenade us all through the day and the blackbirds are, I think, on their second brood of young. Certainly... More

We enjoyed our two nights at St. Martin's house. Caroline and Steve were very welcoming, the accommodation is very comfortable and the breakfast delicious, especially the fruit compot and yoghurt. We would love to return one day and have no hesitation in recommending it. It is also very convenient for Blandford town centre.

My mother and I spent two nights here, at short notice, in early May 2014 and were more than pleased to have found such a warm welcome. Our bedroom was extremely comfortable and everything we needed was provided. We voted the bathroom and well appointed shower the best of any B&B we stayed at on this holiday. Caroline and Steve...

We have just had a second stay at this well appointed b&b in the centre of Blandford. Spacious bedroom and large bed plus a bathroom with a full sized bath - excellent for walkers after a day in the hills.
