This hotel has only four rooms, which is perfect for our taste. The room was spacious, bright, comfortable, spotless and extremely well equipped. The hotel is quiet, with a friendly atmosphere and situated in a lovely area in Charmouth. Ian and Liz were the perfect hosts, being helpful and friendly. Breakfast was cooked to perfection, as was our evening meal.... More

A lovely, beautiful hotel. Huge bright and airy rooms with little extras that make your stay a little bit more special. Particularly like the fresh coffee in the rooms. Great breakfast too - really, really good! Would recommend to anyone wanting a hotel in Charmouth, we will definitely be returning.

Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Charmouth beach is a great place for fossiling especially after the recent storms and although Lyme is a great place to visit, there is no need to go to the 'big city' to bag a few ammonites and belemnites. In our restaurant we do endeavour to... More
