Most impressed that on the second evening they could remember what I'd ordered the previous... More

Stayed here for one night and rooms are very spacious and clean. Whilst no shower, the bath was great. As I only have a shower at home it made a great change. Food was very good and very well presented. Breakfast was cooked to order and great too. Local council empting bins very early did not help but not much... More

This is a fantastic place, steeped in history and lovingly restored by the owners. The rooms are luxuriously spacious and decorated to a high standard. It is located in the centre of Wareham and there is some parking if you get there early enough in the afternoon. The food is excellent and the service friendly and swift. We'll be back!

We stayed here for a few days recently. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was excellent, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The lack of a car park was the only downside to an otherwise enjoyable stay.
