“Always a great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Stayed again at the Bridge House Hotel and got our usual warm welcome. We use it as home when on cricket tour in the surrounding villages and Roger, Etty and the staff are all very welcoming.

The hotel is going through a renewal since we first stayed many years ago the decor is much improved. We loved the basement bar and its guitars and bongo. :-)

Breakfast is very good all food and drink was excellent.

Bathrooms do need fixed showers as soon as possible, but that is the only improvement :-)

Looking forward to next years tour already.

Room Tip: In hot weather avoid the top floor.

Seems to be run on a shoestring with the same lady manning reception when I arrived, serving breakfast and carrying linens up to the storeroom. The building is old but the effort to furnish it in line with its age didn't quite come off. I was travelling with my dog and was shown to a room where an area was pointed out which would be "good for the dog". It was simply the only available space in the room, which was tiny, there wasn't even room for my suitcase unless I blocked the door. The shower room was similarly small, with bare plaster at the top of the cubicle. The restaurant was closed due to some refurbishment programme (which didn't stop the hotel charging the full rack rate of £75) and although the breakfast menu was described as "extensive", I couldn't see why, and if you wanted haddock or kippers you were asked to order the night before! The bed was comfortable and really the only large thing (at 4ft) but the hotel's position near a busy roundabout, with the window necessarily wide open didn't make for the best night's sleep.

This was our second visit. We booked a double room for the weekend and had a fantastic time. The room was spacious and well appointed with a spotless en suite and a view out onto the street. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre of town and so was both convenient and quiet.

The staff are very friendly and professional and the breakfast is outstanding. Be sure to pre-order the locally-sourced smoked haddock served with poached eggs at least once – delicious!

Looking forward to our next stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 this time which looks out onto the street. Despite staying Friday and Saturday n...

I stay at this wonderful hotel regularly throughout the year, it is always clean, comfortable and above all welcoming. the rooms have really comfy beds, which only the promise of an excellent full English breakfast gets me out of in the morning! The hotel is less than a two min walk into the town center. i love staying here and would recommend it what ever the season.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet and well supplied, comfy and have wifi

Set in an excellent location on the edge of town, next to riverside walk and gardens. You can leave your car and enjoy a stroll around Bridport, or take a walk down to the coast at West Bay. The hotel has its own delightful, secluded garden and the staff are welcoming and helpful. When we first arrived we enjoyed a 'lite bite' in the sunny garden, and on another occasion tea and biscuits were served by friendly and helpful staff. I loved the dog towels provided in the room, which was very clean and nicely furnished. The breakfast was excellent. I would certainly stay here again.

We stayed one night in a very comfortable room, the hotel is conveniently located close to the town centre with its own car park.The hotel staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome, the highlight of my stay was the excellent full English breakfast will definetly be going back.
