Very much liked the heated swimming pool which our daughter loved. They are family and dog friendly which we liked, and the bar was pleasant to relax in the... More

A lovely, relaxing weekend - our friends were getting married at nearby River Cottage - in a glorious setting. Neil and Rosemarie are excellent hosts and really make everyone feel at home. The four-poster bed and room with a view over glorious countryside made for a wonderful mini-break (and we'd left the kids at home so it definitely felt like... More

Neil and Rosemarie have worked incredibly hard to renovate and restore this beautiful home to it's former glory whilst at the same time making it work as a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were large, the furniture was incredible and the service was amazing

Really can't fault the Dower House. Great location. Excellent food. Rooms & bathrooms that we saw were good size and well decorated. Really noticeable that Neil & Rosemarie & their family genuinely enjoy what they do! Thanks for looking after us and we're looking forward to coming back soon.

The bar is very well stocked and breakfast was cooked freshly to order - great! The service at the hotel is second to none and I would recommend... More

I booked the luxury suite as a surprise for my husbands birthday and it exceeded my expectations. The room was furnished beautifully and although the pictures show the amazing bath and shower room, the feel of spaciousness is not captured. It was the best room we have stayed in (in the UK) and has the wow factor as you enter.... More

Neil was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble, he even booked a restaurant and taxi for us. The room was really comfortable with excellent views as ithe hotel is situated in a quiet and picturesque part of Dorset. The breakfast was superb with plenty of choice. We will certainly be going back again!!

Our second visit, this time with a group of 14. Rosemarie, Neil and staff are superb, welcoming and attentive. We also pre-arranged afternoon tea and dinner which was lovely and relaxed. The outdoor swimming pool was clean and warm. Breakfast was delicious. Each room is individually decorated and is stylish and practical.
