We booked this hotel in error! We are going to Scotland and picked the wrong Fernhill Hotel. The booking was made and deposit paid. Once I realised the mistake, I contacted the Fernhill Hotel and received a very polite email back from Jo. She dealt with the cancellation and went above and beyond to return my deposit. She did all... More

Sadly we only had one night at this lovely hotel, driven by it many times and always wanted to stay so could hardly refuse when secret escapes had it on their website. We couldn't fault our stay, great staff, delicious food and lovely room, we look forward to returning again soon. 5/5!

Stayed here for a few nights one weekend and had a very pleasant stay. The owners are very nice and welcoming and provide a very good breakfast and afternoon tea with homemade cake. The rooms are well proportioned, tidy and clean. Car park is spacious and the communal areas are comfy. Great location with lyme regis a short drive and... More

Spent a quiet three days here at the end of last year (no doubt the summer is busier) and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. The à la carte restaurant is not overpriced if you take the dinner+B&B option when booking. The food is locally sourced and organic (where possible), carefully cooked and presented and generous in quantity. Some interesting... More

We were there with our grandson to visit the Jurassic Coast. This is a charming hotel, lovely large rooms and very good food and staff. It was a little hard to find as there were two streets with the same name. We had a great dinner as well as a lovely breakfast there. Karen did not go to the coast... More

Booked at last minute based on website descriptions - we pulled up and were not sure whether to stay as the building looked rather run down. Deposit paid so we went in, having read positive reviews. Yes, staff friendly but it stopped there. All a bit dated and strange mix of furnishings & decor - dining room quite traditional and... More

Our Family of four stayed for two nights in room 10. We were made to feel very welcome, fresh milk brought up to the top of the hotel for tea. The cooked breakfast was excellent, you could tell it was cooked to order and piping hot. The scrambled egg was perfect, always a good indicator! Although we had not planned... More

Last minute break in August. Lots to do locally for family. Hotel was clean and friendly. Lovely breakfast - we did not eat there at any other times. Children liked the pool and small paddling pool for our youngest. Large spacious top floor family room was better than a room at the front of the hotel we had for the... More

Stayed 4 nights in early August - lovely weather! Partner had booked a supposedly superior room in the original part of the building overlooking the pool. I think it was No. 1. Although clean, the room was ridiculously small for 2 people and their bags. It was not a comfortable experience, especially in hot weather and a weighty duvet. The... More
