“Short stay B & B”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Just spent 3 days B & B at this hotel and thought it to be very good value for money. Hadn't expected to find that we had a Jacuzzi bath and this was an added bonus for tired feet. Not sure that we would need to lay in the bath watching TV but then everyone to their own I guess. Comfortable bed, plenty of tea making equipment, combination safe and although the hotel was not crowded at this time of the year there were adequate staff around. The big boy's breakfast would defeat most hungrey horses and there was plenty of choice. Dinner in the evening was well presented and nicely cooked. West Bay was a good base camp to explore the coast and Dorset but can imagine it would be pretty crowded in the high season. The hotel has a massive car park and a walk to the harbour takes less than 5 minutes. Plenty of things to see in this part of the country and if you do not know Thomas Hardy land then give it a try.

Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Im assuming you stayed in room 7 which was the first in our list of bathroom refurbishments. With regards to the wall mounted custom television in the bathroom we find this is a nice little touch that most seem to use and just pushes the standards that little bit further. We do hope to see you again soon.

Due to a family memorial tradition our family visit West Bay every year to cast flowers into the sea and what was once a somewhat sad occasion has gradually become an occasion to look forward too .
This is in no small way due to Haddon House Hotel and its Excellent Staff.
Paul and Jo are most welcoming, and the banter that ensues only adds to our visits.
In the early days some of the rooms were very dated ,but now most of them are First Class with Jacuzzi baths and even tv in bathroom. Some rooms are still being refurbished but if they are as good, which I am sure they will be, so any room you stay in will be excellent, and the Food has always been Exceptionally Good, and it is only staying in other Hotels do you realise just how special Haddon House is, particually the Breakfasts, wonderful We agree with all the other positive comments. Thanks again Paul and Jo see you next year hopefully.

Room Tip: All rooms good, but you can say if you want ground floor or back or front of hotels none of the roo...

After visting Hadden House for the past 11 years it is about time we let everyone know what they are missing. The hotel is a family run hotel in a suberb location in West Bay. Paul and Jo strive to make improvements to the hotel where possible. The latest addition is the installation of jacuzzi baths during the refurbishment of the bathrooms (bathroom tv included). There are many places to eat in and around West Bay but you will be hard pressed to beat the quality and choice of food avaliable in their restaurant. Above all the friendly atmosphere and the excellent service from all the staff will ensure you will want to return. We can't wait to go back in August.

Room Tip: Anyone booking a room should not worry about a particular room as they are all very comfortable. Ro...

My sister & I decided last Friday afternoon to go away for the weekend. Luckily Haddon House had a twin room available. Everything was first class, the room, service and food. We have been there before and will certainly return. We arrived at 8.15pm and were straight away offered an evening meal. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Room Tip: This Hotel is very quiet whichever room you have, even though on the main thoroughfare into West Bay...

I stayed here with my sister for a night as we were visiting an elderly relative in nearby Bradpole. Its ideal for anyone seeking a break in West Bay and Bridport is a bustling little town.

We asked for a twin but the room was made up as a superking. The receptionist who showed us to our room offered immediately to have it changed but it didn't really matter. The room was large with an ensuite bathroom, wardrobe, dressing table and two leather chairs. Tea and coffee facilities and TV with freeview -Everything you need.

We slept well and went down for breakfast - fresh pots of tea and coffee to your table and a freshly cooked to order English breakfast. I also had a bowl of fruit before my cooked breakfast and they also had cereals and yoghurts on offer.

The hotel itself is like taking a step back in time. It's old fashioned but anything modern/contemporary in that part of the UK just wouldn't be right. The lobby is a jungle of plants and everything is dark wood. The only thing that creeped me out was the dolly sat in the hallway at the top of the stairs - I don't like dolls and my room was beyond the dolly!! Very dated carpets and curtains but it all adds to the cosy warm atmosphere (aside from the doll for me!). Don't be put off by the decor though, it's a bit like going to see your Nan; everything is clean, comfortable and cosy. I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.

My Wife and I have just spent a weekend based here - the welcome feel of the Hotel in a lovely part of the country (especially given the awful weather of late), the Staff, the standard of the Food and the overall Service was excellent and has made us want to return, which we are aiming to do in the next few weeks.

We stayed here for one night plus our daughter, husband and their 2 year old twin daughters. The hotel staff were so helpful and friendly and made us all feel really welcome. We were joined in the evening by 2 other family members and were treated to an excellent meal and great service. The breakfast the following morning was also excellent in both quality and quantity - it even defeated our son in law! It was a pity it rained all week-end as though close to the West Bay we were not able to walk down to the sea - we will next time!! This hotel is very easy to recommend. We enjoyed room 3 ( a large double on the rear) whilst the family had the massive room one (on the front) - plenty of room for the 2 additional cots and still a large space for the girls to play. Well done Haddon House and staff - an excellent first stay.
