We ate here out of season and it was very good. The atmosphere was quaint, and the staff friendly. However, we returned with family in July and we did not have such a good experience. From the start we were not made to feel as welcome on this Friday as we had done on the previous visit. The food was... More

Well done and a big thank you to all the staff at The Castleman Hotel, who made my partner's surprise 50th weekend truly amazing from Saturday July 12th - 14th. Although guests can just eat at this award-winning restaurant, I have reviewed it as a hotel. There are 10, beautiful, individually-styled, character rooms over the first and second floors, all...

This is a truly original and lovely hotel. It is such a relaxing place, and the food is fabulous. Breakfast was also beautifully cooked and presented. We enjoyed loafing in one of the large sitting rooms with a drink as we perused the menu! We stayed in a family room, which had a double bedroom and separate section with bunk... More

When we went to the Great Dorset Steam Fair, the Castleman was the only place for us to stay.5 family groups from one Family, (about 17 of us). We were always greeted warmly and we would stay for a week. Barbara's food was smashing and very reasonably priced. Teddy was a wonderful host, as equally was Brendan. Brendan has the... More

This is the second year running that a group of us have stayed at this restaurant with rooms and it didn't disappoint. Not only is the food unbelievably wonderful but the staff could not be more accommodating. As last year, we stayed for a long weekend from the Friday night through to the Monday morning and as this is such... More

My wife and I stayed for one Friday night and wished it had been more. Dorset is one of my favourite counties and the Castleman and Chettle did not disappoint. It is an old building, just the sort of place we love to stay. It is in the heart of a tiny village surrounded by fields; so tranquil. Inside, there... More

This is my favourite place to eat in Dorset. The hotel is set in the beautiful village of Chettle and the owner is very jolly and hospitable. The bar is snug, the restaurant cosy and coffee in the study makes it a really lovely evening. The food is good hearty stews, modern fish dishes, great puddings. The service is also... More
