“Fantastic welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

My partner and I stayed at Quigley over Easter and had a lovely time. We had a fantastic welcome with tea and homemade cake and David went to extra special trouble to accommodate my wheat intolerance by making delicious flapjacks and wheat free bread. The bed was super comfey, the shower amazing and the room was really nicely decorated. We also had the use of a lovely lounge with a stunning view, friendly tabby cat and a toasty warm open fire. David and Julie were the perfect hosts and like a good chinwag as much as we do. All in all the best B&B experience I've had and it'll be hard to top!

How very kind of you, as you can tell, we love our job and it's the icing on the cake when our guests enjoy the experience we offer. I think our friends and family would agree that a good chinwag is what we love to do, although we do appreciate that some guests get away for a bit of peace and relaxation and we offer that too!
David loves the challenge of a new recipe, as a Chef by trade, he itches to get into the kitchen to try something different! Do request your favourite cake when you book! Mine's chocolate, and lemon drizzle, and Dorset apple cake and........ that's enough!!!
Thank you both again for being such great guests and hope to see you again. Julie (:-

Beautiful, comfortable and clean rooms with one of the best powerful showers I've ever experienced. The hosts, Julie and David, made us feel very comfortable and welcome, like old friends. Would absolutely recommend this B&B for a peaceful break in the lovely Dorset countryside.

The hosts were very welcoming. The room was small, the bathroom can only be described as a corridor. Everything was clean and fresh. Hot drinks could only be made in Lounge/Breakfast room, not very convenient. At £90 not the best value we have had recently.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, constructive comments are always very useful
and it was great meeting you both.
David and I thoroughly enjoy welcoming guests into our home, often spending time chatting over a cup of tea with homemade cake by the fire in the Guest lounge and found this has worked really well, replenishing everything and putting out fresh milk and cups when needed at all times of the day.We will now offer guests a drinks tray in the bedrooms if required, and appreciate you mentioning this.
Yes, the rooms aren't huge, but hopefully the light, clean fresh decor, great quality beds and Egyptian cotton bedding makes for a restful nights sleep and the comfortable guest lounge gives the extra room to relax, read by the log fire, or pour over the maps planning the next days activities whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
The en-suites do have fabulous power showers with endless high pressure piping hot water and luxury white bath sheets & toiletries hopefully leaving guests feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

Kind Regards Julie Woodroffe

Quigley B & B is a lovely place to stay in the best part of Beaminster. We stayed here while attending a wedding at the Bridgehouse just round the corner. I have to say for the quality and value the Quigley B&B hand down beats the Bridgehouse which is also a lovely place. The owners are amazingly kind and friendly as well accommodating all of our requests.

What a marvellous B&B, both Jools & David most welcoming, the tea and cake was much appreciated. Our room was excellent, not too big and certainly not small. Wonderful clean and crisp bed linen. The whole place was cosy. Breakfast, cooked by David, was extremely good and sufficient, and set us up for the day ahead. We would certainly visit again and recommend. Thank you both.

We arrived in the village tired and wanting to rest. The welcome we found at Quigleys was second to none. Accommodation is clean, smart and comfortable, the owners' were pleasant, concerned and encouraging, and wanting us to be happy. Will definitely return on our next visit.
