We have eaten at The Five Dials many times but never stayed there. Our friends in the village were having a Golden Wedding celebration so we stayed for one night. Lovely room,huge bathroom / wet room and as expected a wonderful breakfast. Thank you Sarah and Paul you work so hard. See you again soon

Stayed one night in August on our way to Cornwall. Great location for a stopover minutes from the A303 with parking onsite. We had a family room with a double and single bed. The room was spacious and spotless. Lovely ensuite shower room with great toiletries. We hadn't booked for dinner in advance of arriving but the owners managed to... More

Overall great food, strange experience though. Went in a few weeks ago having seen the place several times going back and forth to work. It was very busy but one table was free. Asked the bloke at the bar whether we needed to book to eat. He just said "yeh" and continued pouring a drink. Assumed that meant me and... More

Stayed one night in July 2014. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Room was rather small but clean and well equipped, but really hot (a fan would have been very welcome). Lovely courtyard garden to enjoy a drink in the peace and quiet. Farmhouse breakfast was really excellent with copious cups of tea and coffee. We also enjoyed the evening... More

We stayed 5 nights for my daughter's wedding. Five Dials was excellent in every way. The room was very clean, and the bathroom was extra large. The food was as good as any restaurant I've ever been to. The people went way out of their way to be accommodating. The location is very convenient to many lovely towns and sites.... More

We stayed 5 nights for a wedding. The room was clean, and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. The included breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. The staff were wonderful. Also ate dinner three nights and it was superb. Horton is a fine location for driving to Bath, Lyme Regis, Stonehenge, and other sites. My only complaint is that everyone... More

My very first trip advisor review and what a great way to start. We stayed overnight enroute to cornwall with husband and 86 year old mother in law. Brilliant welcome, the rooms were spotless and huge and better toiletries than we've had in 5 star hotels. Always bugs me in hotels that if you use your tea bags in the... More

Sarah, Paul and their staff made us very welcome on our short 2 night stay. Impeccably clean and excellent all round service, and the food was of a very high standard. Lovely personal touches in the rooms, like little bottles of water on the bedside tables. Good atmosphere in the bar area with the locals. Will definitely return if visiting... More

A year since my last overnight stay at Five Dials and the reception was warm, the place was immaculately clean and the food as good as ever. Had turbot cooked to perfection. We'll worth staying here to break a journey but the dining room is often full so book to avoid disappointment. 6
