We stopped here overnight, having been booked by our walking company as part of our coastal walk. Unfortunately we has room 4 which is very small and we struggled with nowhere to put our luggage without tripping over it. Looking at pics of other rooms it appears we drew the short straw as they were fully booked. Having said that... More

Thank you for the review. We are sorry if the room was smaller than you would have liked. However, at Hensleigh House we strive to give complete transparency, and everyone books the actual room they stay in, so as to avoid any surprises. Photographs of every room are given on our website where Room 4 is described on our web... More

Really recommended. Very nice rooms and hosts - friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was excellent too, with very attentive service. Location couldn't be better - 2 minutes to the stunning fossil beach. Best pub was The George - good beer and nice atmosphere. Overall a perfect B & B.

We recently stayed at Hensleigh House for 2 nights, as we wanted to explore the Dorset coast. It is a comfortable hotel with friendly and welcoming owners, and is only 5 minutes walk from the high street and 5 minutes from the beach. My only complaint would be that the shower was the worst I have ever come across in... More

This was an inexpensive B&B. I had the best Scrambled eggs in a long time at breakfast, there was a good range of herbal teas to chose from which I much appreciated not being a caffeine drinker and the location was ideal being close to the Heritage centre. We understand the ownership has recently changed and they are making improvements... More

Booked twin room with a friend for a break. Room lovely and clean and warm. Good facilities in room. Breakfast was lovely and the owners couldn't do enough to make sure we were welcome. Will definitely book again. Also worth mentioning the location. Short distance from excellent fossil finding beach. ....

Hensleigh House is in a great location, just down the road from Charmouth beach (5 min walk, if that). The owners are very friendly and welcoming and accommodating - nothing is too much trouble! They provided us with an umbrella as it was chucking it down when we left to go for dinner at a nearby restaurant and posted my... More

We stayed two nights in the double with king size bed and it has been very tastefully refurbished. Loved the shower but would have liked the toiletries replaced the second day, we run out of soap and shower gel. The Manager Jim, who has recently taken over the property, is obviously trying his utmost to make this a good quality... More

Thanks for the review and comments. I am afraid a problem in the kitchen that weekend did cause delays that caused a backlog. However, glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope to see you again soon. More

Nice small hotel, just a walk away from the beach and cliffs. Very comfy rooms, welcomes dogs in certain rooms. Really good breakfast. Very welcoming, accommodating and friendly staff, especially Jim, the manager. would certainly use again.

We stayed here in the Family suite which was fantastic. We had a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a large bathroom with shower all joined by a hallway space behind one locking door. It was like a little apartment. Breakfast was included and we were allowed to bring our dog. The suite was spotlessly clean, the beds comfortable, the... More
