“Home from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

We fell upon Dove Lodge quite by accident - Doug get that signage sorted out!!

From the time they opened the door when we enquired if they had a room to the time they waved us goodbye it was like being at home. Doug and Mo are the perfect hosts, making you feel so very much at home. The rooms and the dining room are spotless and so well maintained. There are so many little extras; the water and the milk in the fridge on the landing which you help yourself to, the biscuit jar in the room, the chocolate biscuit and mints left with your cups - the ilst is endless. At breakfast you have a wonderful selection of cereals and a perfctly cooked English brakfast and the to finish an amazing choice of Mo's homemade jams and marmalades. We have stayed in many hotels and BB's but the standard set by Doug and Mo far exceeds any of them. Before we left we had a tour of their wonderful garden and left with some rhubarb - Mo had heard us say how much we loved it.

We are so glad we stumbled on Dove Lodge and have booked to return in September this year and I know we will be returning time and time again. Thank you for a great stay!

There is not a lot that I can add to the previous comments from other guests. We had a thoughly good rest. Doug and Mo were the perfect hosts. Nothing too much trouble for them. On top of that we found out that Doug and I had served together in the army so we had plenty to remenice about. The property is situated at the end of a very quiet cul-de-sac so there was no traffic noise. All in all a very nice stay. Highly recomended.

on arrival we were greeted by doug who made us both welcome.when we were taken to our room we were amazed at the decor and the rooms furniture.we were very comfortable in our room and the breakfast was top quality.also to say thanks to Mo for being able to provide for our special diet.as to the person who said doug was overpowering we had no problem with this as we could relate to everything he was talking about. we will be returning again next year.keep up your excellent service.

All the previous reviews are correct, the place is spotlessly clean with plenty of tea and coffee, the food is great, Mo and Doug are very friendly however we found Doug a little overpowering, he stayed with us the whole time we were having breakfast, chatting and telling jokes which I'm sure for some people is great but didn't really suit us. I'm sure if we had said something he would have left us but we were worried he would misunderstand and we would hurt his feelings. A small complaint in an otherwise lovely bed and breakfast

The service was first class, always with a smile from MO and DOUG.
Nothing is to much trouble for them.
The rooms are excellent with full tea and coffee facilities, TV. and now we have memory form mattress toppers which give a good nights sleep.
Location is very good for travel around the coast and to others places of interest.
The best thing is breakfast, all home made jams, and bread, own eggs,tomatoes, plus the bacon and sausage.
There wasn't anything we didn't like, we have booked for next year.

We stayed one night and found Doug and Mo very friendly and welcoming. Our room was lovely, everything worked well and was nicely decorated. The breakfast was great, thanks Mo, the whole family enjoyed it, and Doug was wonderful with our 3yr old son, whom he entertained while we got to finish eating in peace! Would definitely recommend it.
