We stayed last night in the Fernhill Hotel just outside Lyme Regis. Situated on a hill and overlooking the road down to the junction with the A35 there was some traffic noise but it was quiet during the night. The entrance door was dressed with two water features - orbs with water spilling down them -but only one was working... More

There is nothing really wrong with this hotel, but neither is there anything remarkable about it. The exterior is a bit of a let-down, as it really needs a refurb, but some effort has been made to make the interior more inviting. Our bed was comfortable and the room a good size, but a winter duvet was on the bed... More

We spent 2 nights here and booked specifically from a search for gluten free hotels . The food was lovely and it was a pleasure to be free to order across the menu as did my partner who is not GF . Staff were engaging yet relaxed and it was good to see such an interest in how food was... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. We found the staff friendly and helpful - on arrival we were shown to our room, given a little tour of the hotel and offered tea/coffee and cake as a welcome gesture. Throughout our stay the staff could not done more to make our stay a happy one. Our... More

This hotel is outside Charmouth, but quiet and relaxing with good food and marvellous service. There are a lot of stairs to negotiate if you are on the top floor and it would be lovely, but probably impossible, if they could install a lift. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in at hotels and the... More

We were greeted by the owner on arrival who showed us up to our room he also lugged our cases up three flights of stairs with very good grace and offered us complimentary tea and cake. We did not eat in but the menu looked very appetizing. The bar was comfortable and the staff very friendly and chatty. The room... More

When we arrived we received a very friendly greeting and a quick tour of the hotel before being shown to our room. We had booked room two as it seem to have a nice view and we were not disappointed. The hotel had everything we needed including Wi-Fi in the rooms along with a TV and DVD player with DVDs... More

Whilst holidaying in a cottage at Fernhill Heights (between Lyme Regis and Charmouth), we ate at the Fernhill Hotel. The cottage was in the grounds of the hotel so we could walk; the bar area of the hotel was both welcoming and comfortable. The manager (Rob) and staff were friendly and informative. The meal in the restaurant was fantastic; a... More

A nice hotel. Our room was great, no view though which would have been nice considering the area. A good selection of toiletries on offer. Exceptionally friendly staff except for the lady running the breakfast service - the breakfast was very good - small and limited buffet but an extensive cooked breakfast menu. A very well stocked bar and nice... More

Enjoyed my stay here while touring Lyme Regis. Comfortable room with on suite. Spotlessly clean. Top level toiletries in the bath. Full English breakfast was delicious. Too cold for swimming pool but it looked great.
