We stopped here for the night prior to boarding a cruise ship as it was only 1 hr outside of Southampton. Very comfortable accommodation with lovely outside venue to enjoy a meal or drink. Breakfast was included and very good. Front desk staff were most helpful as I had a family emergency that needed to be attended to - a...

I stayed for 2 nights at the Crown Inn and was extremely impressed with how much thought had been put into the rooms (wish I could have taken it home with me !) It was so relaxing and the staff couldn't have done any more. Excellent value for money, received luxury for such a great price! Will defiantly be returning...

We've been travelling around the UK for 3 weeks, on holiday from Australia. This is the best food, service and presentation we have experienced during this time. All the seafood looked great. Mussels are one of the specialities, and we had the trout which was a terrific choice. Thanks to the staff and the chef for a wonderful lunch.

There was a nice atmosphere to the whole place and we ended up eating in the hotel the both nights we were there. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It's very central and within easy walking distance to the...

We stayed here with a wedding party as my son was getting married in Dorchester. When my husband and myself got to our room we was very surprised to find no wardrobe in which to hang our wedding clothes. Instead there was just coat hangers on the wall. We complained as we needed somewhere better to hang our clothes up....

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay. The bedrooms all have individual pieces of furniture that were sourced specifically for the bedroom they are in. We have made notes of where these may be a bit smaller than others and will look at how we move forward at our six month review in a few months time. I will...
