We stayed here for 2 nights. Room was OK. Bathroom could use some needed maintenance/update (which the owner confirmed). Location was in 10 minutes walk from the centre of Dorchester. Breakfast was fine with all the usual options. Gary was an excellent host, hence the extra star.

Excellent accommodation, welcome and food. We've stayed on several occasions and have yet to be let down by Gary's high standards and friendly approach. Very warmly recommended. Comfortable beds and excellent breakfasts remain a constant - keep it up.

Stayed for just one night, was greeted by the owner who very friendly and welcoming. My single room was on the 2nd floor and looked very comfortable. I liked that the fact that there was an armchair to sit in while having a coffee and watching TV. The en-suite was a bit small and cramped but serviceable. The only downside... More

I visited this B&B with three friends on a three day golf break. All requiring ensuite rooms. We spent two nights here. I had room 6 which was very comfortable with a double bed and modern bathroom. It had a P shaped bath with shower over it. There is only off road parking for three cars , which means parking... More

Very helpful and friendly owners. I had small single room with compact shower room at top of house which suited me fine, especially as it was reasonably priced. Super breakfast in lovely big room next to stylish rear garden. Plenty of evening eating options in town centre. Easy parking close to property. Would definitely stay again.

Arriving after a long days work and travel I was straight away put off by the lack of a car park. Parking on the street just seemed a little strange. After id parked up and got the luggage out of my car I got to the front door and noticed a sign that read something along the lines of "if... More

I was collecting a new BMW from Westerly BMW in Dorchester and Bay Tree House was recommended by the dealership, it's right across the road. A check on TripAdvisor confirmed that other guests recommended the place so we booked. We'd travelled from Manchester on the Friday evening and rang to ensure that late check-in was acceptable - it was 22:30... More

Bay Tree House is one of those increasingly rare places that combines genuine hospitality and comfort with more than a touch of style at a great price. Ok, so its not the greatest location in Dorchester but its only 10 mins walk from the centre and, once inside, you are made to feel welcome along with great rooms and perfect... More

Had to go to Dorchester for business as I was attending a training course for five days. After finding this B&B I took the plunge. Travelled down on the Sunday evening and was greeted by the owner on my arrival. A very friendly welcome and was shown to my lodge. They have recently opened two lodges away from the main... More

We were visiting Dorchester for a friends wedding and booked to stay here on the night before. Very pleasant people, close enough to the centre and choice of pleases to eat in the evening. Rooms comfortable, breakfast very good. Enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate in staying again
