We stayed at Kemps a couple of years ago and it was quite good then. We stayed there again in August 2016; the room and hotel are tired, old fashioned and needing some TLC. The fabric that covers the ceiling in the dining room is full of dead flies and insects, we sat there once very concerned that they could... More

We stayed for 3 nights as a birthday treat and our wedding anniversary, the stay was perfect already booked for next year, the setting is perfect and central to Weymouth and Bournemouth, breakfast was freshly cooked, the whole setting was great, we had busy days and peaceful nights, what more could you ask for, staff was friendly. Thank you.

We absolutely loved this hotel and will definately be coming back, we had a lovely air conditioned room with wonderful views over the purbeck hills, glorious. We had two nights as a special birthday weekend and there is so much to do. We had dinner on the Saturday night which was faultless and very nice, breakfast was also delicious and... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights whilst attending camp bestival . Very convenient for Lulworth castle and we were made very welcome by John whose attentiveness and dry humour was lovely . The Room was small and separate from the main house but fine for our needs . The only criticism is that our key wouldn't work on... More

Outside large towns like Poole, Weymouth, Swanage and Bournemouth, where there are hundreds of hotels in every category, you can choose from cramped, overpriced b and bs, and pubs, also overpriced, always noisy and and often filthy (like the dog-friendly Castle Inn in West Lulworth, which has not been decorated for many years). There are a few boutique hotels, also... More

After reading other reviews on here I was a bit dubious, but I can honestly say there wasn't anything to worry about, all I can is that some of the moans are unjustified, seems to me that people will moan about anything! We arrived on the hottest day of the year so far and was shown to our room which... More

Our room was beautiful and spacious with Views of the countryside. Trains went past a quarter of a mile away but seemed to stop at night so interesting without being a nuisance. Charming Irish owner aided by an incredibly efficient and helpful Polish lady who seemed to be everywhere. Food was fine but starter portions a bit large for us... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2016

The rooms are in a new annex to the side of the main house where the restaurant/lounge/bar is to be found. Rooms are spacious and comfortable but seem to lack those 'small touches' (for example a potpourri or range of toiletries) that I would expect from a private enterprise with relatively high prices. Indeed, there was absolutely no inclination to... More

I stayed at Kemps for three nights over the 25/26 June weekend together with my son and brother in law. We travelled to Dorset from Sydney Australia for Tankfest at the Bovington Tank Museum. I found the aspect of the country house very relaxing and peaceful. It is set on a quiet country road. All amenities were modern, clean and... More

Stayed here for one night, large very comfortable bed in a spotlessly clean first floor room, (no15) with a view over the Purbeck Hills. Dinner and breakfast served in the conservatory was excellent, would have no hesitation in returning. Recomended
