Just stayed one night, thought was tempted to extend it after the first night, and probably would have been swayed if the price was a bit lower. The hotel is easy to find and well situated - in summer you'd be able to use the coastal path to walk into Lyme in the evenings, but not in the winter dark!... More

We stayed for two nights. Our room was good, the bathroom a bit small. Bed was comfortable. Clean and comfortable all round. We ate in the main restaurant on the first night. We found the ambience not good. It was dark and a bit staid. The food was fine. We changed from eating in the restaurant on the second night... More

We stayed for one night for a birthday treat, but wished it could have been longer! We were greeted on arrival with a complimentary pot of tea and slices of Dorset apple cake, which was delicious. Our room, overlooking the front and side of the hotel was very clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had... More

Stayed one night in this charming hotel - had been there for dinner thirty years ago and while passing this area decided to see how it had changed. For the better is the answer - kept up with modern standards and fulfilled expectations but superb "old fashioned" service very much in evidence. Room was well appointed and modern: Dinner and...

We were staying locally and came here for a meal. Offer bar food or restaurant, and elected to go in the restaurant - dearer but much better menu! Also bar was empty, so no atmosphere. Meal was excellent, and staff very friendly and welcoming.

This hotel was really excellent. We were on a Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal tariff for 3 nights. The restaurant food and service could not be faulted and the bedrooms were well furnished and very clean. The proprietors and staff could not have been more helpful during our stay.

“I can't recommend where to sleep. We had a room overlooking the pool and found the whole hotel experience both comfortable and quiet.”

“Rooms on the South side would probably be quieter in summer if you needed windows open. The road is certainly not a problem in winter!”
