We have just come back from a week in Dorset, obviously staying at Olivers.
We have stayed at a few b&bs in Corfe and a lot more around the country, Olivers is hands down the best. It is far more than a standard b&b, it is hotel quality.
Firstly, the b&b accommodation has a separate entrance to the side of the cafe, through a covered courtyard and up some steps. Outside the b&b rooms is a decked area with tables and chairs where you can sit, we used it a couple of evenings to sit and have a drink.
Next in through a main door to a lovely hallway where two of the rooms are, Charles 1 and Bingham. There is a fridge in the hallway for customer use, which is very helpful. A selection of books and dvds to borrow.
Upstairs are the other two rooms Bankes and Cromwell.
We stayed in Bingham, a lovely big airy room. This room can be a twin but the zip and link beds can be put together to make a superking, The bed was very comfortable. The furniture in the room is good quality. Lots of hanging space, ironing board, decent size TV. Good size shower room. They leave added extras in the rooms that make it much more hotel quality. A bottle of mineral water on each bedside cabinet. A box of tissues, little mint chocolates and hand wash and shower gel in the bathroom. It was lovely having the all the privacy of a hotel and all the personal touch of a b&b. Finally, the food. The breakfasts were superb and dont miss the cafe. They serve tasty lunches that are totally different to anything else in the village.
Reading this you would think I was being paid to write this review, its just that Olivers is Simply the best.

Our guests can access the B & B via their own door (we live next door so you get to come and go as you please!) We serve breakfast that includes everything from fresh seasonal fruit to a traditional full cooked fry-up (only we grill it and won't fry anything unless you ask us to!). We also offer a range of options for those who have alternative dietary needs or preferences. Our double fronted Purbeck stone building, which dates back to 1833 sits in the heart of the village just off the main square and has all the charm and beauty you would expect of a traditional village location. ... more less
