If you want warm motherly hugs from a b&b, don't stay here. If not, this is a great place to stay. We arrived early and they let us put our luggage in our room. The room was big enough and everything looked new and clean. Although it was on the "Main" street of Corfe Castle, it was very quiet. The rate was acceptable, breakfast was good, and the location cannot be beat; walk out the door and you can see the castle, and walk almost right into it.
Corfe Castle is an absolutely lovely town, and there are lots of things to do here.
We ate lunch at the courtyard of the Model Village attraction and loved it; the entrance is up the hill just a bit from Olivers, on the opposite side of the street. You do NOT have to go in to the Model Village to eat here. The food was just delicious, and the people there were cheerful and nice. We tried to eat there for dinner but they were closed by then.
For dinner we did eat at Olivers, and I am afraid we were not very happy with our meal or its cost.
But as a place to sleep, Olivers is first-rate!
