I wish there was a category higher than "Excellent" with which to summarise our experience of Abbey House. We have been coming here for lunch every year now during our annual visit to Dorset, and Abbey House is always the one place we absolutely must go to. Lunch on the lawn with gorgeous views across the valley is simply wonderful.... More

Location ideal, great views, and a stepped garden well maintained, ideal for "coffee on the patio", Firm but comfortable bed, with a ensuite bathroom with bath and shower, Breakfast just about anything you would want, can recommend the full English and the porridge! Make sure you have the cream tea! Family ran and as... More

Really welcoming, beautiful and of top quality, this restaurant is somewhere I always go for tea in the afternoon when in Dorset. The staff are friendly, the tea and cakes of great quality, the price reasonable for the quality and the view while eating outside is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone when travelling to Dorset as a lovely... More

I come back and back here many times. Jonathan and Maureen are very welcoming hosts. The garden is a lovely place to sit and monch on a crab sandwich (local Portland crab so good and fresh) Several nice tea places in this village .. but Abbey House is the classiest and most fun.

We visited the hotel for 2 nights on family recommendation. We were not disappointed. The hotel is in a stunning location and has everything you need. The owners are friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Breakfast of Bridport haddock was perfect before walking the hills in the surrounding area. The hotel was being refurbished when we stayed but every effort... More

We have stayed here a few years ago which was a great experience, had the room so we could see St Catherine's chapel. What I want to say is if your in the area try there crab sandwiches. The lunch menu is great with a lovely view of the children's zoo/ barn.

Breathtaking scenery, delightful hospitality, spacious yet quaint room and a delicious and ample freshly cooked breakfast - what more could you want? A really relaxing location with spotless rooms and good old fashioned comfort. Thoroughly enjoyable and a good base for seeing the Dorset coast. Would highly recommend.

We stayed here for three nights in October. The owners are very welcoming, the rooms very comfortable and clean, the breakfasts delicious and the overall experience was excellent. We can't wait to return. It's very well situated to walk to attractions in Abbotsbury such as the swannery, sub-tropical gardens, the chapel on the hill and it's right next to the... More

Stayed at The Abbey House for two nights during half-term. Arrived with low cloud, so didn't see the wonderful views to begin with. Hosts are excellent, and breakfast more than ample, with lots of choice. Beds are really comfortable, and although decor is certainly dated (flowery curtains/ bedding/cushions with wood-chip wallpaper and flowery border) the room was large with comfy... More
