Stayed on 28.9.16. Nice welcome, good rooms, brilliant brekkers all in a clean, good value for money package. Motorbike friendly though you need your wits about you when you have to reverse down the incline of the drive.

We loved the super king sized bed and the sofa - felt like being at home. Details have been well thought out such as blackout curtains and choice of teas and coffee in the room. Delicious breakfast with loads of choice.

Aquila Heights is an ideal place to stay for exploring Dorchester and surrounding countryside. The rooms I've stayed in were large and airy, spotlessly clean and well furnished, and the owners, Derek and Wendy went out of their way to make my stays enjoyable. The food is excellent with plenty of choice and I would thoroughly recommend Aquila Heights. The... More

The welcome we received was warm and friendly. My room fresh and clean, I particularly liked the seaside theme! My friend and I stayed overnight to leave in the morning for home. The location was quiet and the view of Maiden Castle was awesome. Breakfast was so good. I enjoyed every bit. I liked all aspects of this Guest House.

I booked a single room (rm 4) which had its own bathroom accross the landing, a bathrobe is provided for your modesty, as well as a selection of shampoo, conditioner and showergels, towels face cloth and soap. Dont forget to take your key with you! Superb breakfast with more than enough choice and gluten free options too. A 'packed lunch'... More

Derek and Wendy are lovely, extremely accommodating and very helpful. The place and room was immaculate. Huge breakfast choice, we've never seen so many different jams and cereals!! Gorgeous breakfasts ranging from a classic English, continental and kipper or salmon options. Definitely worth another visit and I would recommend it highly as a place to stay.

Took a last minute decision to visit the Great Dorset Steam Fair and booked into the Guesthouse. Can only 100% agree with the previous comments on this excellent establishment. Warm welcome from the owners and only a 10 minute walk into town. Wonderful cooked breakfasts with a fantastic selection of teas, fresh fruit salads, jams and sauces in fact I... More

After looking at the website, I booked in for two nights and was not disappointed. Derek and Wendy are very friendly and welcoming and extremely efficient, when it comes to booking. My single room (No.7) with a private bathroom was very spacious and extremely comfortable. The breakfast on the website more than came up to expectations. The range of options... More

We were originally looking for a mini break on the coast, but it being August, prices were high and availability low. Looking inland a bit we found Aquila Heights which turned out to be perfect. The house is spotless, our room was enormous (room 5) and had everything you could possibly need, hairdryer, impressive array of toiletries, bottled water, fan,... More
