Warm welcome on arrival and shown to our room where TV etc. explained. Very clean and tidy with everything you need for a stay. First class breakfast promptly served with a smile and chat. Great stay and we would certainly stay again if in the area and recommend to friends and family. Ample parking.

The B&B has a good location in the centre of the village and a few steps from the beach. Adequate parking. Friendly staff. A very clean establishment serving an excellent breakfast. However, the twin room was a bit small and rather overpriced at £120 a night compared to other establishments including hotels. Charmouth handy for visiting Lyme Regis and Sidmouth.

When I was choosing where to stay in Dorset, for some reason this hotel kept jumping out at me on the Internet. Fate? I never ignore my gut instinct so booked in for five days for a mini getaway. The hotel is utterly charming and the owners have made a wonderful effort to use the decor to reflect the gorgeous... More

About a 5 minute walk from the beach, glad we chose to find a nice coffee shop rather than opt for one in a polystyrene cup on the beach. Very friendly and inviting, the coffee tastes beautiful and cakes were moreish and mouthwatering. We took our two young children who were made to feel very welcome also.

We started with a misunderstanding about our having booked a downstairs room but this was amicably resolved. After this everything was good. Our host carried the suitcases upstairs and, at the end of our stay, downstairs. The beds were extremely comfortable and we enjoyed an excellent night's sleep. Breakfast was the best I had all week. Highly recommended.
