We've just returned from a one night stay and thought Oliver's was just lovely. It's situated right in the heart of Corfe and only a short walk to local shops or the castle. Our room was immaculate, tastefully decorated and the ensuite was huge. Having read previous reviews there are now tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Breakfast was plentiful, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, toast and a full english breakfast. Excellent value for money, would certainly stay here again.

Olivers is in a fantastic location above a cafe/ resturant right in the middle of the village and a 5 minute walk to the castle.
When we arrived there was no info as to where to check in so we went in the cafe and they found the owner who showed us to the side gates and our room, a notice or sign on the main door giving directions would be handy.
Our room was comfortable, large, modern, clean and newly decorated alas no wifi or tea/ coffee facilities. I was told there was no tea/ coffee facilities in the room as previous guests had accidents but if we wanted a hot drink to let them know in the cafe and we could bring it up to the room, which we did. I still would of preferred to have the option in my room.
There is no parking at Olivers! In Corfe you can park on the street for one hour and not return within an hour between 10am - 8pm. If you arrive within these times you have to park in the local car park (£3.40 for 3 hours/ £4.50 for 4 hours) this is a good 5-10 minute walk away from Olivers.
I would of liked in the room some information about the area and about Olivers e.g. where to go for breakfast and what time it was? what time was check out?
Our hosts were welcoming but we didnt really see them apart from checking in and during breakfast the following morning.

We have recently returned from a two night stay at Olivers in Corfe Castle. The B&B is very well positioned in the centre of Corfe Castle. We stayed in the twin room which was the only room available and found the room to be very clean and well presented. In fact the room appeared to have been recently decorated and carpeted and the ensuite was pristine. Olivers B&B is positioned above the tea rooms/restaurant however there is no noise from the restaurant even during the height of the summer season. The owners are very accomdating and will provide you with a complimentary fresh pot of tea for your room on request which is a nice touch. The breakfast was good with a selection of fresh fruit, cereals and yogurts and English breakfast. We found considered Olivers to be very good value for money and enjoyed our time there. We would definately recommend Olivers to others.
