We were blown away by the place - a warm welcome greeted us from the fantastic owners and the room we stayed in was cosy , comfortable , clean and beautifully decorated! All the extra touches made our stay delightful - from...

Stayed for a weekend, could have stayed all week! We had such a warm welcome, Neil, Rosemarie and daughter Emily made us feel at home and couldn't do enough for their guests. The hotel is super comfortable with a mix of old and new, fabulous loo's! We stayed in the Coade room which again was very comfortable. Breakfast was great...

Despite the Lyme Regis address this hotel is situated just over the border in Devon. Lyme is a couple of miles away; Axmouth a little further. We chose the best room in the house and were not disappointed. From the copper bath with mood lighting to the silver furniture and enormous bed this was luxury from wall to wall. Even...

Just back from an overnight stay at this gem - tasteful decor and furnishings, faultlessly clean. An extremely well stocked bar area, where we settled next to the woodburner and watched the rugby! Our room had a huge, very comfy bed and lovely wetroom plus tea and biscuits, a coffee machine and bottled water. Neil and Rosemarie are perfect hosts...

This is not the place to visit if you want to be "in the thick of it" . However it is close to Lyme Regis and Seaton. A very relaxing stay, thank...

My husband and I have just returned from the very lovely Dower House Hotel where we spent two nights exploring Dorset and East Devon. The weather was pretty bad on two days out of three, but the hotel was a delight to return to each evening. Our bedroom, the Coade Room, was just so inviting; classic and elegant furniture, warm...

Beautiful room and fabulous en-suite shower. Extremely clean, lovely linens and a great nights sleep. We didn't have dinner there but breakfast was fresh and plentiful. It is in a gorgeous location, with beautiful surrounding views. Quiet and located in a peaceful area, with few other properties close by (at least I don't think that I can remember!). We didn't...

This hotel used to be part of an old boarding school. The rooms are of different sizes and each room is uniquely decorated. The service is warm and personable. The proprietor was kind enough to show us round a few other unoccupied rooms - all of which were very well decorated. It's in the middle of the countryside, and there's...

Dower house is a wonderful place to stay just outside Lyme. The building, rooms and garden are beautiful. The owners make you feel like part of the family with excellent and extremely friendly service. Will definitely book again and can highly recommend.
