I booked this B and B as I'm working in the local area. The rooms are excellent value for money, it is at another level than most other B and Bs I have stayed in. The hosts welcomed me with a cup of tea in my room. Breakfast is an amazing experience in this beautiful dining and living room combined... More

We couldn't close the ensuite door on our original room and were lucky to be able to change to another. However at 3.45am. the glass shelf that had been stuck to the mirror in the new ensuite came unstuck and fell hitting first the wash basin and then the floor with an almighty crash - very frightening! Coming through the... More

Close to the centre of Dorchester. A very tidy B&B with an excellent breakfast. Friendly welcome. Walking distance to museums and other attractions of lovely Dorchester. Excellent base to travel through Dorset. Beautiful and unspoilt coast. Many nice mansions in the country. Film location of 'Far from the madding crowd'. Thomas Hardy trail.

Stayed for one night last week, my colleague at work found it for me and booked me in at the last minute. I was greeted at the front door by the owner Gareth who kindly took my bags to my room, I was offered a cup of tea or coffee right away which I didn't have but thought it was... More

As soon as I arrived I was greeted with a much needed cup of tea and some biscuits by the owner. The room was spacious, clean and had everything I needed including reliable wifi. Breakfast was equally impressive with a wide variety of food to choose from. I would stay there again for business or leisure.

We spent two nights in this well appointed b&b. Modern rooms with a large converted extension with a big round communal breakfast table overlooking courtyard/ garden.. The owners keep dogs and a sizeable parrot Our bedroom was fine but if you have the choice look around for size and natural light as they all seem different. Quiet at night with... More
