Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are very pleased that you found the staff friendly, and that you had an excellent breakfast. Unfortunately we are unable to have a lift, as we are a grade 2 listed building, but we do have rooms on the ground floor, if stairs are a problem. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Trouble-free stay

Booked here for a couple of nights. Small room crammed in high under the rafters at the rear of the hotel, made smaller by having a double bed crammed into it. £100 per night. This hotel does have so... more

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. We have a variety of different sized rooms, being an old coaching inn, and the room you were in (a small double) has the best view out over the town. We are pleased that you found the room clean, and the shower good, and that the staff were friendly and helpful. The stair carpet is being replaced this month, along with continued decoration and room improvements. We are pleased that you enjoyed the swifts flying by, and hope that you enjoyed the Dorset Countryside and Jurassic Coast. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
