We spent five nights in Aquila Heights and it was just like the great Trip Advisor reviews had said. It became a perfect basis for our exploration of Dorset - with top breakfast (try great kippers poached with butter!), a nearby bus stop towards Weymouth, a picturesque town centre within a walking distance, great traveller´s advice from Joan, a very friendly B´n´B owner, loads of leaflets, maps and bus schedules and a proximity of one of the most spectacular British historic sights - Maiden Castle, an Iron Age hill fort, Aquila Heights added to a top experience we had in Dorset. The area is very quiet at night, the room is spotless, bathroom has a lovely strong shower and there is a huge selection of toiletries. In addition, the room No.5 where we were staying has a wonderful view of Maiden Castle! Priceless!
