“A Brilliant B&B and a Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed November 29, 2010

I was greeted in the car park by Lisa, and was given a warm welcome, more significantly since it was a terribly cold day.

We stayed in Keats room, which is a spacious and lovely room and has a great anoramic view. Neal's Yard toiletries and other things you may forget to pack were all provided in a box, which is an surprise.

The breakfast was good, and used local sources very fully.

The only weak I have demonstrate is the shower room, since no heater in operation, it is a bit cold to take shower in a winter morning( Keats room is not ensuit now, other ensuit rooms should be much better in the term of warm bathroom), However, lisa said an ensuit shower room and floor heating will be applied to Keats room fairly soon.

You’re in for a treat if you stay at Graybank!

Booking was a breeze. Their online availability calendar lets you see what rooms are available. We submitted our booking enquiry online and Lisa called us within 2 hours to confirm. We received a detailed Booking Confirmation via email within minutes.

We arrived at Graybank and we were greeted in the car park by Lisa, who gave us a warm welcome and offered to help us with our bags. We were shown to our room and Lisa gave us a few practical tips about the room and hints on where to eat locally, then left us to quietly relax and settle in.

We stayed in the Hardy Room - What a view! We made ourselves a cuppa from the organic selection of teas, coffees & herbal alternatives on the hospitality tray and enjoyed the jar of local Dorset cookies whilst we soaked up the beautiful hillside views as the sun went down… what a brilliant start to a much needed relaxing short break!

We normally only search out and book 4 star + minimum and Graybank is not even officially ‘rated’… and it doesn’t need to be! Lisa & Clive’s personal standards are 5 Star + and they work tirelessly to make sure that you feel relaxed and spoilt.

Exactly what a Bed & Breakfast should be... a divinely cozy bed & the most delicious breakfast I've ever eaten!!!

We’ll be booking again next year, there’s no question!

If you are looking for a friendly welcome, service where nothing is too much trouble, a spacious and tastefully furnished room (Hardy is the largest and has a smashing view) and a breakfast with a huge choice of organic produce, then Graybank B&B will suit you fine.

We were met by Lisa, an outgoing hostess who showed us every detail of our room. There were two easy chairs in the bay window with magazines and books to read as well as a Freesat telly. Lisa gave us the low down on where to eat & drink including quality of waiting staff, choice of food, size of portions, real ales & ciders, etc.

The king sized bed was so snuggly with its pocket sprung mattress, goose down quilt and quality pillows. The en suite (currently not in all rooms, but that is Clive & Lisa’s project for this winter) in Hardy was spacious by B&B standards with fluffy dressing gowns, Neal's Yard toiletries and a magic box holding all the things you may have forgotten to pack.

Clive cooks an amazing breakfast with pork from locally ‘pampered pigs’ - he’s getting lots of practice since they took over in June 2010. Use of local produce features highly.

C&L are getting plenty of bookings via recommendations and if you visit Graybank you will see why. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

We were met by Lisa who straight away made us feel welcome and showed us to our bright and airy room - with two large single beds that were sooo comfy! Lots of thoughtful touches such as chocolates, really good and varied toiletries, milk in a fridge, bottled water, dressing gowns ---I could go on. Breakfast in the morning uses local organic produce, alonmgside toasted hiome m,ade bread and is expertly cooked by Clive. These guys work really hard at what they do and they do it brilliantly. They have plans for constant improvement and it will just keep getting better and better - I thouroughly recommend a stay in this beautiful house, in it's gorgeous setting with spectacular views--- and hosted by two very talented and welcoming hosts. We will be back!

We stayed at Graybank in October for two nights and had a relaxing and welcoming stay with Lisa & Clive. The B&B is located perfectly, just a 5 minute walk to Lulworth cove and has two pubs just five minutes either side of it offering good food and drink.

The room we stayed in was perfect, very clean, great views and awesome pillows!

We very much appreciated the personal touches throughout our stay and always felt like we were being looked after. Let's not forget the Breakfast - it must be the best in Dorset!

We are already booked up to return in the Spring - Highly recommended.

If you want good hospitality and an amazing cooked breakfast then this is the place for you. Lisa & Clive are very friendly and will happily go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. I booked the twin room as it met my requirements when booking and was happy to discover the beds are both 4ft doubles rather than a smaller single. To be honest the decor is a little dated, but having only been there for 4 months and having a busy summer, I can see that this is not the fault of the owners. Lisa assured us that over the winter period they will be having some alterations done and will be bringing Graybank up to a higher standard with en-suites et al. (This is the only reason I gave 4 out of 5 for rooms and value). The breakfast was superb, lots of organic cereals on offer, fresh fruit and berries, and as for the cooked breakfast... WOW! Have the poached eggs, they are to die for! Without a doubt the best I've had the world over! From what I can see, this place can only get better; a young couple with high personal tastes and qualities, an enthusiasm to please their guests and the ability to do it. I thoroughly recommend Graybank.

Only one recommendation, unless I missed it.. maybe a wi-fi connection?

PS, Clive, the tyre did need air, it was down to 14psi !!! Thanks for the help though :)
