“Great attention to detail in a wonderful Edwardian home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

We needed a place to stay for Christmas whilst visiting our son and family.From the prompt reply to our email to our departure,we were very impressed by the little touches that Wendy and Don have implemented in their wonderful Edwardian home. Everywhere was clean and sparkling
The breakfasts took advantage of the local food in this part of Dorset and were well presented and delicious .Thank you Wendy and Don.

We rolled up here after a tired and stressful unplanned stop of in lovely Bridport. We struck lucky. Wendy couldn't have been more helpful. The place has been timewarped from the Edwardian era. Not to our taste, so we thought, but then we just fell in love with it. The attention to detail in the decor is matched by the impeccable service. Free chocolates secreted in our room, the BEST breakfast I've EVER had in a b and b, combined with unobtrusive, but flawless service made a hastily booked one night stay an unexpectedly magical experience. An absolute bargain and I highly recommend a stay here if you are heading to Dorset.

Room Tip: We were in Room One. It's a smaller room, but has a great dual aspect view over the gardens and...

We came to stay for a weekend with friends, and can say nothing but positive comments about the Gables.

The house has beautiful character, with period oak fittings & decor. The owners made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived, without being in anyway obtrusive.

The rooms are beautiful, with no detail missed: comfortable beds, chaise longues, space & tranquility. We especially appreciated the absence of a tv, & the fabulously comfortable lounge.

This is a great b&b to have a relaxing weekend in luxuriously comfortable surroundings that have great character.

We spent two nights here with another couple and we had first class service in every respect. The rooms were spacious and full of character. The food was superb and the owners did everything possible to make our stay a memorable and enjoyable experience. We will return!

My parents came from Spain to visit me in Bridport and they stayed at The Gables for three nights. Wendy and Donald greeted them warmly and I was invited to have breakfast with them two everyday. The hotel and the room was lovely, clean and warm and we were pleased with the hosts. They treated my parents and me as part of the family and were absolutely kind to us during their stay. They were also very patient with me trying to understand my not very good English. In short, The Gables is a highly recommended hotel for family and friends.
