The room was lovely, with the added luxury touch of towelling robe and slippers. We ate in the pub one evening but the service was appalling. Not the fault of Claire the waitress who was apologetic but the chef took an hour to make our starters, can only think he must have nipped to the coast to catch the prawns.... More

My wife had Hunters chicken which was also very good. The ice cream is homemade and is honestly the best ice cream I have tasted,, I had the lemon curd flavour mmmmmm... More

Plenty of parking and met by friendly smiling staff that spoke good clear English. Then given keys to one of three rooms up the stairs. Opened the... More

My colleague and I were working at Bovington military camp for a couple of days and this hotel is literally on the road directly to the camp. The rooms were large, clean, fantastic bathrooms and beautifully furnished. Breakfast lovely. Will definitely stay again. Thank you.

Stayed for 2 days and was very pleased with facilities. Lovely room with comfy bed, well stocked tea and coffee, bottled water, slippers and dressing gowns. The shower was the only problem with the room but we didn't really get the opportunity to mention it; if we had stayed longer I would have done. Lovely breakfast and well cooked. We... More

Firstly I would like to address the food in question. If there was not enough then why was there food left over and that you were trying to give it away as not to waste it! Also your grandfather booked a buffet for 50 people yet over 75 people attended so I would say more than enough food. Can I... More
