“Very laid back and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

Very good hosts, nice room, great position just on the outskirts of Lyme Regis. I am a fussy git when it comes to food and our hosts catered for my needs and cooked my breakfast to perfection.
We walked down to the beach which takes about ten minutes on a nice walkway at the back of the B and B.
I am a bit of a moaner, and I have nothing to moan about.

Don't stay here! I'm a big fan of B&Bs and usually enjoy the quirkiness of each establishment. The Old Black Dog however proved to be an exception to the rule. The rooms were poorly maintained and the staff rude beyond belief. I've experienced a few 'Basil Fawlty' types at B&Bs over the years, and they're fun in a peculiar way, but the owners at the Black Dog were offensive. I'm a regular visitor to Lyme Regis and have stayed at many other local B&Bs since, who offer a far better service. Save your money and go elsewhere!

We stayed two nights in this Guest House and were made to feel very welcome by our hosts. The bedroom and en-suite were large and clean with lots of extra touches like tissues and bubble bath. Plenty of tea and coffee available in room. The breakfasts were cooked to order and delicious - worth waiting for. I like my bacon very crispy and it was cooked perfectly. Would certainly stay there again if in that area as it is a great position for exploring Lyme Regis and the locality although it is very hilly there.
