This is a lovely family-run hotel in a beautiful house with very well appointed rooms. Comfy beds, great walk-in showers, delicious breakfasts. Only two drawbacks: the loo was a little bit noisy and the restaurant is not open every night. It's driving distance to the nearest eating place so best to check the restaurant availability before your stay.

My husband and I stayed at Dower House for 2 nights. We had traveled from New Zealand and knew nothing about Lyme Regis except River cottage was part of the district and we were excited about dinning there. Rosemarie and Neil were so welcoming and helpful organizing dinner and taxis for us - nothing seemed to be a problem or... More

We stayed for one night and reserved the Gould room which is one of the smaller rooms at this hotel and on reflection would have preferred a larger room but as it was only a short stay and we were literally only in the room to sleep it was fine. I recommend any one staying longer to perhaps book a... More

This has got to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, and there have been many! Location is superb if you want to be near the sea but not right in the middle of town. The grounds are very well kept and there is plenty of easy parking. The lounge area is modern and has a... More

Warm, welcoming, comfortable, stylish - lovely staff - comfortable bed - quality shower/bath - simple, quality, breakfast. We took the most expensive room as it was the only one available - it was just lovely but, by comparison, we thought on the pricey side when compared with boutique hotels we have stayed in elsewhere.

This week after failing to find a hotel in the centre of Lyme Regis we booked into this hotel. It is superb! We had a very warm & genuine welcome from Neil the... More

If you are thinking about booking to stay here then do it!! I stayed here for a wedding at River cottage and it was the best decision I have made when it comes to booking a hotel. It is the most stunning venue surrounded by beautiful countryside. When we arrived we were greeted like we were a family friend, lots... More

During our 3 night stay here, we found every aspect of the hotel was excellent. The hotel is in a quiet location in its own attractive grounds. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Our room was clean, comfortable and attractively decorated. Everything functioned as it should, and the power shower... More

An old house refurbished to a high standard, with only 10 rooms. Good quality furnishings and fittings. Outdoor heated pool. Superb breakfast, again good quality and nicely presented. A warm welcome from hosts who were happy to advise where to eat in the evening. Is on a main road with some traffic noise, but amazingly quiet at night time. We... More

Take two stressed, exhausted, jaded Londoners, add a beautiful country house, velvet sofas, magnificent views, a luxurious bathroom, proper coffee in a romantic bedroom, the plumpest pillows in the world, a heated swimming pool and hosts who feel like friends. Stressed Londoners are now very happy indeed. The best thing was sitting on the terrace under a huge sky watching... More
