We stayed at the Lantern House B&B towards the latter part of the recent May half term and we were really impressed with the size and comfort of the room (the Rose room), plus facilities. Pauline and Jeff were really welcoming and accommodating hosts and nothing seemed too much trouble. The breakfasts were excellent, in particular the fresh bread was... More

Lovely quiet location but very handy for the town by foot. Handy 2 space parking at rear or on road parking. Green room has a lovely afternoon sun trap indoors. Very comfortable, with owners on hand. Only 3 rooms available

We were staying for 1 night in Dorchester and needed just 1 night B+B so booked Lantern House with its central location, parking and excellent reviews. We were not disappointed and wish the owners well. The breakfast was very good and I liked room very much - home from home. We visited Thomas Hardys first home and his Max Gate... More

The owners of this B & B were so helpful and welcoming there was no way we were ever going to have anything other than a great time. They even called me at home in the morning to check on our arrival time and see if there was anything they could do to help. The house is beautiful, spotlessly clean,... More

We couldn't have wished for better place to stay for our 3 night break. Geoff and Pauline were amazing hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Our room was spacious with an en suite shower room, a lovely big comfortable bed and a seating area to sit and relax, enjoy our tea and biscuits (all provided) and watch... More

Last minute booking that turned out well. Our room was ensuite, very well furnished and comfortable, and had a lovely aspect which overlooked the rear garden. Jacqui was our host, and she was extremely welcoming and helpful. She also presented a very tasty breakfast, with home made bread!

We picked this from Trip Advisor for a two night stay as we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants. Great from that point of view, but be aware that the car parking is not easy. Lantern House has space for 2 or at a pinch 3 cars behind the house in another very narrow road but it not... More

Such a great BnB! Our room was large and overlooked the gardens. We had an ensuite and a sitting room to enjoy the tea and biscuits provided. Breakfast was great and Pauline and Geof make you feel so welcome. Would definitely stay there again.
