We stayed at the Countryman Inn for three nights before heading to Cornwall for our summer holiday this year! Not far from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Really great find, the accommodation was beautifully clean, a great size and ideal for a family with young children. Food in the restaurant was good pub fare and very kid friendly. Pub garden...

Spent a night here and really liked the hotel. Very friendly staff (although it wasn't very clear who we should ask for our rooms when we arrived...we were faced with a busy bar and no obvious check in area...) room and bathroom were clean but needed a little tlc..would have preferred a flexible shower head and the toilet handle was...

We arrived about 5pm after a day out at monkey world and we're given a warm welcome. We were shown to our huge room, which was clean and pleasant with a large comfortable bed. We booked a table for dinner. The food was very nice 'pub Fayre' lasagne, fish and chips, the kids had pizza and sausage,chips and peas. All... More

Stopped off here after a beautiful day out and sat in the beer garden. Menu and drinks are great but expensive it is the rude and bored staff that let the establishment down the most though. The bigger of the two brunette waitresses should be aware that when she speaks, customers can hear and it's not appropriate to be rushing... More

Can't fault this place at all. Location, facilities, food, staff, accommodation and price where all 10/10. Definitely coming back next year. Great place for families with small children as the park in the garden is private and secure. Breakfast was delicious.

Clean,friendly and a great selection on the menu for everyone. The wine selection is very good we love Californian wine and was pleasantly surprised that they have it. The children enjoyed the play area. Overall very nice stay.

This is the third visit where food and service have been lacking, and getting steadily worse. Shame as we have been out here many times over the years. Worst of three visits by far (other two were carverys) Probably as it resembled a youth club with staff entertaining their friends and not concentrating on customers. Order 3 lunches and only...

We checked into are room that was meant to be the family room that was surprisingly smaller than the advertised pictures and... More

Welcoming, comfortable, clean. What more could you want! The restaurant offers a wide range of excellent home cooked food. Service is professional but friendly. Have visited at least once a year for 4 years now and is even better under the management of Jo and her team. Highly recommended.

Perfect location for a trip to Monkey World. The room was large and well decorated. Shower good too. 3 Ladies, stayed in Family room, so a bed each. Heating seemed to be on a timer, so the room was a little cold, But it was February and it's an old building, we just got under covers and chatted whilst waiting... More
