“Wonderful service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We loved the food and the service was excellent. Couldn't fault either. Not cheap but good value. I had scallops for starter then dressed crab and fruit salad to follow. Well presented and cooked to perfection. My husband had soup then lamb followed by cheesecake, with good dish of vegetables to accompany meal.

“Amazing Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed there for 2 nights. it was one of our higlights of our short roadtrip throug south england, noooo: it was the highlight!!!. The owners were just lovely and helpful - we can just admire their devotion and enthusiasm. We are sure that they will increase in thier doing - it is already just perfect.

We were so happy and convinced by the food at our first dinner in their restaurant that we couldn't wait for the next evening having another spectecluar dinner! Breakfast fast just perfect too!!

thank you for the 2 wonderful days an nights and. We will be back!!

“Boutique hotel in a spectacular setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

My only regret about staying at Limestones at Lulworth was that I was there for just one night!
What a lovely hotel. Each of the rooms (only about 8 of them) was superbly decorated to a set theme. I stayed in 'The Boathouse' - a gorgeous mixture of old sea-faring trinkets combined with all the modern-day accoutrements any traveller could wish for.

For me, there are three things that really stand out about Limestones:

1. The owners - they're so passionate about providing a unique, boutique experience, and their passion is 100% realised in the quality of their service. Seriously - there isn't a request they could not accommodate.
2. The view - sheer bliss to sit outside the hotel with a glass of bubbly and the papers, overlooking Lulworth village
3. The food - now, I'm not given to abbreviations, but can I just say 'OMG'?? I can highly reccomend the dressed crab with french fries... although I was tempted by pretty much everything on the menu. Needless to say, it's all freshly-caught.

The details? Private parking, private garden (huge), 'honesty bar', lovely toiletries in the rooms, and far enough from the 'madding crowd' (did you get the Thomas Hardy reference there?!) - to get a seriously amazing night's sleep.

Please visit. I'll be returning. And I'll fight you for a room. :-)
