We had dinner here yesterday evening to celebrate my daughters special birthday. We have eaten here several times before and we were really looking forward to a special meal. Unfortunately this was not so, the starters lacked seasoning, the main courses were overcooked, especially the venison. The only saving grace was the desserts which were excellent. When asked by the... More

Recently had another lovely stay at this wonderful little hotel. We keep returning and are never disappointed. It has the feeling of a private home with individually designed and furnished rooms, comfortable sitting areas and friendly staff who provide excellent service. We always enjoy the freshly prepared breakfasts in the garden room and eating our evening meal in the 'cellar'... More

This hotel was a great find, it is a treat indeed to find somewhere that is not full of flash and bling. It is understated and beautiful. It knows exactly what it is and long may it stay that way. A slice of a sadly long gone england. Genteel, great service, beautiful surroundings. I couldn't fault it. We went for... More

This hotel was a pleasure to visit from start to finish. The staff were warm and welcoming. The location set on the river was so pretty and tranquil. We ate in the restaurant and were not disappointed. There is an excellent wine list to accompany dinner. The secure gated car park was also great as parking can be difficult in... More

My husband and I have stayed at four pride of Britain hotels and this one was the latest and in itself was a little piece of England but the town of Wareham left a lot to be desired . I struggled with this review because I was trying to base my opinion on the hotel but the town did have... More

This was my second stay at the hotel and again an excellent choice. I booked the bed, breakfast and dinner option. The hotel is great as it does not apply a 2 night stay at the weekend. The room we stayed in was beautiful, super kings size bed, beautiful views and a luxury bathroom. The food is amazing and would... More

We stayed here after the valentines taster evening. The menu was excellent and it was so good to be in the atmosphere of a tastefully decorated cellar as the storm raged outside We slept in the boathouse, very comfortable with a separate lounge area. The bathroom had a jacuzzi bath. All the staff were attentative and welcoming. One small point,... More

Excellent food and wine with excellent service in the restaurant. Huge choice for breakfast with friendly service in the Garden Room. Would definitely return here - even if just to eat in the restaurant!
