No coffee in the room.
Very quiet, nice rooms, comfortable bed, vary friendly and helpful hosts.
Minor problem over towel supply when we checked in!
Very friendly and helpful hosts. Separate, spacious room with sofas and small table and chairs. Four-poster bed.
The B+B at this charming historic tea shop goes well beyond the average- bedroom with genuine four poster- a living room wth comfy sofas, huge TV, tea and coffee facilities and mini frifdge-brilliant idea - good bathroom- it's rather a beautifully appointed suite. The only slight disappointments were that during our stay the tea shop itself was shut for redecoration- ( but our breakfast was still fabulous), and the water pressure in the wash basin was a bit temperamental (possibly due to the work that was being done.) Deb and her husband were great hosts- welcoming and friendly ( and very informative on this lovely building's history)but also being discretion itself. Would absolutely recommend to anybody wanting to stay in the area- especially those that love unusual and historic
The bedroom, lounge, we were alone...and very old and romantic, as well as a great breakfast
The old tea house is a lovely,quarkie place, built in 1635.. Full of charm. The accomodation was very comfortable , with squidgy sofas,flat screen T.V, and a very romantic Elizabethen four poster bed in a the bedroom. Mine host couldn't do enough for us,very friendly without being pushy. Breakfast was beautifully cooked and very tasty. We can highly recommend the old tea house.
Dont stay if you want 5 star luxury, go to experience quirky character of this lovely B&B and sample their excellent breakfast all served with politeness and a lovely smile.
Very spacious rooms, comfortably furnished and a wonderfully comfortable 4 poster bed. Nice touch was the tiny fridge with fresh milk. Lovely large screen television. Beautiful old building.Delicious breakfast, cooked and served by our host in the coffee shop. Really enjoyed our stay. Would stay again.
We had the windows open as very good weather and could smell the curry from restaurant next door
Everything was great from the moment we arrived,very very friendly
The Inn was built 1633 and is close to all town facilities. I had a large sitting room, large bedroom with a four poster bed, all to myself. The host is easy going, genial and endlessly helpful, washing my shirts for free. Dorchester, well less atmospheric than Sherborne, is an excellent jumping off point to explore Dorset and West. Very reasonably priced too!
No negatives at all!
Stayed one night, wonderful service, incredible room! Lovely helpful staff. I would recommend to everyone and be sure to have a lovely homemade cream tea!
Location of the B & B and the size of our rooms with a very comfortable 4 poster bed. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast excellent.
there seems to be a problem with the doorlocks
the unique charm of a house built in 1635
Low pressure shower difficult to control temperature
Friendly welcoming staff Breakfast (yum!) Four poster bedroom with separate living area and en-suite bathroom Great facilities - Free wi-fi
lack of car parking facility
very friendly staff/owners. breakfast was very good plus the fact we were issued with a front door key to come and go as we please.
Parking on the street from 8am and maximum stay time only one hour. Noise and smells from kitchen of neighbouring restaurant. Noise from the kitchen of the tea house early.
Liked watching the duck and ducklings in the garden. Privacy. Enjoyed the breakfast. Very quaint and interesting decor.
The sitting room was of a very generous size and comfortable
Bathroom needs updating No onsite parking.
Excellent location Large rooms Good breakfast
wireless signal could be better
friendly and helpful good atmosphere very comfortable great coffee great breakfast
Ventilation of the room was difficult as there were significant noises and smells (smoke & cooking smells) when the windows were open.
The exuberant and humorous hospitality. The quirky and historical nature of the building. The HUGE lounge room that was part of our suite (for two people). The four-poster bed. Derek's scones.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable stay.
Layout of accommodation. Welcome from owners.
I had to leave a day early because of work!
More a suite than a room, with a real four-poster bed as well!
Spacious and comfortable room with lots of character Lovely, friendly staff who looked after us Great breakfast included in cost
Hard to find any faults really but if I had to pick something I would say that the bathroom could do with a bit of updating and the water pressure in the shower was a bit low but that really is as bad as it gets. Would be more than happy to stay there again.
Beautiful suite with a lovely bedroom and four poster bed. Friendly, helpful staff gave us information on local attractions and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. Cheap long stay parking just a little further up the road. They serve a great full English breakfast
The shower/bath. I had difficulty in controlling the water temperature and the bath would have taken ages to fill up. I do appreciate it's a very old building and the plumbing could be a problem. Otherwise a fantastic experience.
The staff were very helpful, welcoming and pleasant. It was a very comfortable stay and you felt like it was your own home. I would certainly stay again.
