A big thankyou to the very friendly and accommodating staff providing a very pleasant stay at the Dorchester. The guest house was clean and had a warm feel about it. The room was perfect for our requirements and the breakfast was bang on! would not hesitate to visit again.
from the welcome to breakfast next morning we could not fault anything
The room was excellent, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were well cooked, and local produce. The best scrambled egg I have eaten for years! Will definitely consider going back
Honesty bar Quality of room Knowledge of local amenities Breakfast superb
Little bit noisy upstairs, but think this was more to do with the guests than the room. Pipes were a little noisy late evening.
Excellent breakfast, warm and friendly host, comfortable and well-appointed room, excellent value for money.
not a thing
absolutely brilliant great food great staff great bedroom you can't ask for anything more
There was nothing we didn't like
Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived, Julienne is lovely and you know straight away that nothing would be too much trouble. Great big room, very comfortable, well stocked mini bar, nibbles. DVD player as there are DVDs available to watch. 5 minutes walk to town and free parking. As I said 'fabulous'. Would definitely stay again.
Noisy people in room above on first night made sleep difficult.
Lovely clean comfy room. Friendly owner. Good location with parking.
Could do with more parking but you can't have it all . :)
Everything. The stay was very good especially the room of which was a premier room and the breakfast was the best I've had in ages, with lots to choose from.
The Guest House is spotlessly clean, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are superb. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and access to their personal DVD library was a nice touch.
Very friendly staff. Lovely food. Comfortable room. A spotless guest house, nicely decorated with lots of original features.
Large bed, mini bar, breakfast included.
We had a very warm welcome and comfortable over-night stay in a large well appointed room. Would definitely recommend it.
Wonderful room and service from the lady who runs it. So homely! Great breakfast options too
The hosts are amazing, helpful and friendly, very hospitable, advise what should be visited in the area and you feel they care about you, we felt comfortable and I would reccomend this place
Friendly staff, great breakfast, good accommodation
Breakfast was lovely, everything you could need. Owner very friendly and helpful.
The room was a very good size. And, unlike many other B&Bs, the shower wasn't cramped. The room was exceptionally clean. Breakfast was very tasty, and there was a good selection available. It was a little bit of a walk into town, however this meant we weren't kept awake by seagulls like some of our friends who were staying closer to the sea.
