“Third stay at this excellent, friendly B&B”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

This visit was myself and my two daughters. As on previous visits John and Jill made us so welcome. It is like staying with old friends who can't do enough to help; I had forgotten to take an adaptor I needed and John found one to lend me. Nothing is too much trouble.

Breakfast is cooked freshly exactly to your requirements, thank you Wendy.

The comfortable lounge means you are not confined to your own room if you have an evening to while away.

We will certainly be returning and would not consider staying anywhere else if we are in the area. Thanks again John and Jill. Lovely to see you both and Dulcie as well as the new addition of Lola. My daughter loved her stay with you all again.

We stayed with John and Jill at Laurel Cottage for two nights but wish it could have been longer. The moment you step through their door the warmth and welcoming are second to none. Nothing was too much trouble, the rooms are beautiful, very comfortable beds and lovely linen, amazing en suite which beats a five star hotel hands down. Ideal location for travelling around Dorset and surrounding areas, nice pubs nearby for evening meals. You really could not find a better place to stay. Thank you John and Jill for finding us a room at such short notice and for going to so much trouble, we will be back to see you again, also please send our love to Wendy and thank her for the delicious breakfasts. Best wishes Frances and John

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 days in Dorset. Laurel Cottage is a delightful find. The balcony room was lovely, very spacious and extremely comfortable - especially the bed! Jill and John are very welcoming hosts who pointed us in the right direction for the evening out and ensured we had everything we needed. The cooked breakfast was great, thank you Wendy! If we had been braver we might have tried the pool which looked inviting - but cold! The gardens are exceptionally pretty and all in all we can highly recommend a visit!

Room Tip: We stayed in the balcony room which is large and very comfortable, though if you are tall the eaves...

We enjoyed three lovely nights, wish our stay could have been for longer. Jill, John and not forgetting Dulcie made us feel welcome. Lovely room and comfortable bed and more than adequate meals set us up nicely for the day.
Already planning another Dorset trip!

Hi Cheryl,
thank you so much for your tremendous review. It really warms the cockles of our hearts to read such lovely reports, and makes running a small business like Laurel Cottage really worthwhile. Hope to see you both again, thanks once more John and Jill and Dulci.

We have just spent 3 wonderful nights in the charming Laurel Cottage. We could not have asked for more - it is clean, comfortable, welcoming but most importantly, John & Jill are the most friendly, accommodating hosts. They made us feel so welcome and allowed us to feel totally at home, even though there were 6 of us, including 3 noisy children! The children were able to make use of the lovely pool (yes even in the rain), and the comfortable lounge meant we were able to spend some time together in the evenings before retreating to our beautifully furnished bedrooms. The breakfasts were amazing - thank you to Wendy, especially for my delicious poached eggs! My son left his watch there when we left yesterday, John has kindly posted it back to us & it came with the post this morning. Thank you John.
Thank you to all of you for a wonderful stay, we will most certainly return.
If anyone is in 2 minds whether to visit, please don't hesitate. It's fabulous!

Room Tip: The balcony room is amazing.
