What a delight, sadly as I was a late booking there was only availability for two nights but I would have gladly stayed longer. Delicious food has brought me back for lunch every day of my week long stay in Corfe and the owners and staff couldn't have been more helpful and kind. The comfyest beds in the whole town well worth every penny absolute value for money. Great job team.

Its really quite easy when guests are like you, particularly the sense of humour around Paul's first efforts with your boiled eggs and my special salad! We truly appreciate the review - Thank you. (and we are planning a winter break so expect visitors when it gets cold)

We called in here for a drink to avoid the heat today and stayed for a lovely, fresh lunch. Fully recommended and reasonable prices. I will definitely be back next time we are in the area and would love to try the B&B :0)

My husband and I have just returned from a two night stay at Olivers. The B&B was superb, the rooms lovely and spacious with very comfortable beds. Corfe Castle is an amazing settling and the B&B is perfectly located to explore the surrounding area. Leigh (owner) was very welcoming and ensured everything was to our liking. A great choice of cooked and cold breakfasts which were very yummy ... Especially the sausages on the cooked breakfast. We've stayed in many hotels and B&Bs around the country and can honestly say this is one of the nicest places we have stopped in. I don't often write reviews but felt this place deserved some excellent feedback. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends and family. Thanks for a fantastic break.

This is a great base for exploring the Swanage Peninsula. Corfe is lovely and Oliver's is a fine place from which to spend time in the village or to explore further afield. The hosts are very attentive and will go out of their way to help you make the most of your time in this part of Dorset. They even gave us a lift out to a pub they recommended in a neighbouring village. Everything is high spec but my highlight was the beer they stock from a Dorset microbrewery. This is served in the cafe downstairs which is also a great place for lunch. Bang on!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Olivers. It really wasn't any trouble to take you to Church Knowle - we eat quite often any way! Really pleased that you enjoyed the local beer, it's quite popular, next time you visit I'll get a different type for you to try!

Thanks again.

Highly recommended - Oliver's has comfortable and spotless rooms, is located in the heart of the village, and Paul and Leigh are friendly, helpful hosts. Great breakfast and lots of nice touches included too like a bottle of water beside the bed and a collection of DVDs to borrow.

Stayed here for 2 nights end June and it was top notch... We were met by the owners Leigh & Paul who (once checked in etc) invited us for a welcome cup of coffee in their lovely cafe area, the cofee is a good as any i have tasted and they chatted to us giving us some very useful tips and advice about the area and recommended some walks for us which was the purpose of our trip.
Our bedroom was beatiful and even had a fridge just outside the room which is a lovely touch so we could put somw wine and beers ready for our return from our walk - they have a beautiful suntrap patio area to the rear and this was where we enjoyed our cold beers after a hard walk which is not what one expects for a b&b it has to be said! they also placed little treats of chocolate and water by the bedside as part of the service and really do make you feel like you are the only people staying there. The bedroom we stayed in was spotless and had great shower and bathroom etc.
By this stage i am assuming these guys have been doing this for ever and have a string of these places - upon chatting to them i couldnt have been more wrong as its their first venture and they clearly intend on delivering the best customer experience around and they were very genuine and keen to know what we thought of the place and we chatted away to them over a fab breakfast to let them know they had made our weekend feel like we were staying at a 5 star hotel - overall one of the best b&b we have had the pleasure of staying in and will be coming back for sure - well done to Leigh & Paul.

Stayed for one night last weekend. Lovely room, spotlessly clean, wonderful (vegetarian) breakfast, competitively priced and all a stone's throw from Corfe Castle. Leigh and Paul have thought of everything and clearly really care about making sure their guests have a good time. I managed to leave a pair of trousers in our room on departure, and have just received them back laundered and ironed! Thank you Leigh, and all good wishes for your future at Oliver's. Absolutely recommend.

Hello

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, it is very much appreciated. It really wasn't a bother to launder and send back your stuff, honest! Thanks for the tips on the veggie food during breakfast too, it helps a lot to know what's "good" in the vegetarian world. Thanks again for the review. Leigh
