My partner and I visited The Lordleaze Hotel in August 2013.
The first thing to note about The Lordleaze is not to rely so heavily on sat nav but break out the map otherwise you will do as we did and end up in an industrial estate. I had visions of holidaying on an industrial estate. Fortunately for us this was not the case. The hotel is situated in its own grounds just off a newer housing estate.
The room was up a set of stairs and along a narrow corridor and was a nice size room with a nice flat screen television which we utilised upon arriving as the journey was arduous due to the traffic in and around the A303. Avoid it if you can. The view from the window was over the garden which was lovely and quiet. The room was very warm so it was nice to be able to open the windows nice and wide. The only downside of the room was the thinness of the walls which meant I could hear those on the other side of the wall. This will not be an issue for most but next door to us was a small child which we could hear. Luckily it did not affect our holiday and there is always the freeview if you need it. One thing I was disappointed in was that there was no water which is usually provided so we had to use tap on the first night.
The bathroom was a little smaller than I expected compared to the rest of the room but the size was adequate and the shower was finished to a nice standard.
The car park was more than adequate so this should not be a problem as I know sometimes parking can be an issue when going away.
The breakfast was lovely and this is held in the main dining area. The dinner was held in a conservatory style area and this was very nice. The service was excellent and the food, I had the lamb, was very nice.
There was also a bar and a nice quiet lounge area to sit and enjoy a nice cup of tea after the meal.
Overall I would say our stay was very pleasant.
I would recommend a break at this hotel despite the slightly thinner than expected walls because if you have considerate neighbours this should not be an issue. The meals were excellent and there were also some fantastic places to visit such as Lyme Regis which was within about 35 mins drive and is well worth a visit especially when the weather is nice as it was for us upon our visit.
