“Convenient, Comfortable and Classic”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a wonderful old style country hotel, just a couple of hundred yards from the harbour but in a quiet haven.We had a spacious, light and exremely well appointed room (room 2) with whirlpool bath and bath television. Quiet except for the seagulls!
Relaxing public rooms, waiter service at breakfast which is almost a thing of the past and the evening meals were to a very high standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Haddon House is in a wonderful location and has a timeless charm so absent in many modern hotels. The rooms have all the modern facilities you need but had an olde world elegance about them. They are airy and spacious with enormous beds and beautiful sash windows. The staff a are enthusiastic, friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy their jobs. The breakfast is amazing with fresh natural produce a full waiter service and enough food to fill a horse. We can't reccomenr the Haddon House highly enough. It is our most favourite hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet and have lovely views

I had phoned the hotel to make a booking and spoke to the manager Joanne Richards who was most helpful as I am disabled and explained I needed a ground floor room, which she arranged very efficiently over the phone and booked the room for three nights as I requested. Sadly on our arrival there was a mix up about the booking and they only had two nights available on the ground floor. We were very disappointed as I requested three nights which was confirmed with the manager. We tried various hotels near the port of Bridport, sadly they did not have one room in any hotel on the ground floor and no lifts/stair lifts. The hotel is absolutely fantastic and clean and exquisitely decorated except the mistake which was made which was not dealt with correctly in my opinion, as no little gesture was offered as to regards to a free drink or something for the disappointment we faced. However we have no complaints against the hotel as we had a fantastic meal In the restaurant and it is the only hotel in Bridport which caters for disabled people e.g- walk in showers ETC... This experience would not stop me from using the hotel as it is an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: room 6 and room 15 are the best all round.

We have stayed at many hotels over the years (including 4 and 5 star). If we had to chose just one as our favourite, it would be Haddon House. We have stayed there on many occasions and have always had a wonderful time.
Good location, a building full of character and charm, friendly/helpful staff, clean well equipped rooms and the food it just outstanding. We can thoroughly recommend this Hotel.

This is a very good hotel. The location is excellent and the stafff extremely friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is fantastic, the room very nice and overall good value for money. The restaurant serves an excellent dinner; not cheap but very very good!

The Haddon House proved to be a perfect base for our Dorset weekend away, we had an 80th Birthday celebration nearby at the Riverside Restaurant, which was excellent and needed a nearby hotel to make our base and stay for a few days. Our room, No 7, was beautiful and bright, welcoming and had a lovely bathroom with whirlpool and TV, neither of which we used, but lovely idea and positioned at the back overlooking the gardens, very quiet and peaceful except for the cries of the seagulls, which I personally loved, part and parcel of being at the seaside. Breakfast was very good, staff very friendly, nice restaurant area. We actually ate in the restaurant on one evening and can thoroughly recommend the fillet steak, fantastic!

I personally loved the fact that the beach and cliffs at West Bay are very beautiful and dramatic and were perfect for early morning walks along the beach to next bay and back along the cliff path by 8 o'clock in time for shower and breakfast with nothing except me and the seagulls, wonderful! Perfect stay.
