Just returned with my wife from a 2 day stay at the Gamekeeper. Booked this after reading some of the previous reviews and i have to say im so glad i did. Room check in commences from 2pm, so when we arrived at 10am we were not expecting to be able to check straight into our room, however Jackie the owner made our room up and we went straight in. The room was clean and comfortable with tea & coffee making facilities, flat screen tv and a large double bed. The bathroom was equipped with a toilet,sink and shower cubical, no bath tub in our room, however i do not know if any of the other rooms have a bath tub. If im being perfectly honest the lack of bath tub does not bother me as i prefer a shower anyway, however the shower cubical was a little on the small side and could possibly prove a bit difficult for the larger person. Anyway on to the bar and restaurant, these i found to be excellent. The bar served a good range of beer and spirits with the Gamekeeper real ale a must try. the restaurant area was spotless and very well laid out. Now comes the best bit, the food. One word describes the food BEAUTIFUL. Just eating our evening meal in the restaurant made our stay worthwhile. Our stay was on a bed and breakfast basis, and im pleased to say breakfast was also great. The breakfast consisting of a bowl of cereal followed by a full english with toast then came toast and marmalade/jam all washed down with fresh fruit juice and tea or coffee. So if you are looking for a relaxing stay in the Dorset country it is certainly worth seeking out Jackie and The Gamekeeper. You will not be disappointed.
