Reviewed 31 August 2016

Stayed here to enjoy some coastal walks. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served in the on-site restaurant which wasn't actually part of the hotel, but was available to guests, with an excellent selection of items. Car parking was available close by with a free parking permit which was really helpful....

Hello Thank you for writing a review for us, particularly for mentioning the porridge (which I made) - It's always nice to hear that our guests have enjoyed breakfast with us, after all we offer Bed & Breakfast so if we can't get those 2 core issues right then we should change careers probably! It was lovely (and very easy)...

We stayed for a weekend break in the Bingham room. The room was stylish, comfortable and very clean. It overlooked the quaint West Street. The ensuite was large with a very good shower. It's the little things that make a difference like the complimentary chocolates. Everything was spot on. There was a coffee machine in the hall outside the room....

We stayed for 3 nights when we were staying in Corfe for a wedding. Really nice, large and well appointed rooms. Pictures don't do the rooms justice. Breakfasts were excellent, but the best bit was the incredibly friendly owners. Great little touches made us all feel very welcome. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore East Dorset.

We stayed here 5 nights and the room, the food and the hosts were all excellent. In particular, Paul and Leigh were very helpful and friendly. The B & B is situated in West Street and was very quiet at night. The location is ideal for exploring Corfe, Swanage and the whole of the Purbeck area. Breakfast is amazing with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have 4 delightful and tastefully decorated bedrooms that will also satisfy those who enjoy a decent shower with their modern en-suite facilities. Our guests can access the B & B via their own door (we live next door so you get to come and go as you please!) We serve breakfast that includes everything from fresh seasonal fruit to a traditional full cooked fry-up (only we grill it and won't fry anything unless you ask us to!). We also offer a range of options for those who have alternative dietary needs or preferences. Our double fronted Purbeck stone building, which dates back to 1833 sits in the heart of the village just off the main square and has all the charm and beauty you would expect of a traditional village location. ... more   less
