Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Fernhill Hotel, located 2 miles from Lyme Regis, was a lovely place to stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely, comfortable room which was super clean. Breakfasts were cooked to order and served with a smile - wonderful staff. We would stay here again.

Took the opportunity to book a late stay due to the forecast Indian Summer. Wasn't disappointed. Excellent location. Comfortable beds and clean well sized room. Menu selection for both breakfast and dinner was ample. Both the service and food itself was extremely good. The no waste policy is to be commended. Along with the pre-ordering of meals. Made the whole experience more enjoyable. Will certainly be back again next time we are in the area.

A comfortable and homely hotel in easy reach of the Jurassic coast by walking or by bus. A bus stop is at the bottom of the hotel drive and within a few minutes you can be in Charmouth or Lyme Regis. We never used the car! The owners and staff were superb in ensuring our stay was relaxed and private. Breakfast and dinner is provided in a large comfortable room with plenty of space between individual tables allocated to your room. We had a luxury room which was spacious and comfortable with an en suite bathroom

We have stayed here quite a few times, but this was our first stay since lockdown. Although things have changed it didn't make our stay any less enjoyable. They run a zero waste kitchen (which is a great idea) so you have to order your dinner in the afternoon, which wasn't a problem. Good choice of meals and really lovely and flavoursome. There were new beds, and they were so comfortable. Rob and Jo were so welcoming, as were all staff, and it was lovely to be back in our favourite place to stay.

Had a lovely stay at the Fernhill Hotel near Charmouth. There was a warm welcome on arrival and we were given all the information we needed for our stay, including their zero waste policy. The room was a good size with a very comfortable king size bed, all the beds are king-size or bigger. Their green ethos is excellent and home made biscuits were provided in our room as well as tea and coffee and fresh milk. The breakfast choices were wide and catered for all tastes including gluten and dairy free. We had a delicious three course meal there in the evening and the vegetarian options were varied and interesting. The location is convenient for Lyme Regis and Charmouth and is also very close to the park and ride and I would highly recommend a stay.

Perfect place to relax and enjoy being looked after by wonderful hosts in an idyllic setting. Pool was a great addition. Definitely not a walk for the faint hearted in Lyme Regis and charmouth. Cabs a must, but can be slightly difficult to organise.

Just back from a fantastic short stay at the Fernhill. We were greeted and made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Lovely room, tastefully kitted out. We loved the zero waste and "we won't bother you unless you need us" policies. The location is ideal for Lyme Regis and Jurassic coast. Definitely recommend a stay at the Fernhill.

Most beautiful, quiet place with great ethos to food waste whilst serving delicious meals (3 course meal set us up for the day!) Room was very clean and we were very grateful for the ceiling fan 🥵. Clipper teas and home baked shortbread in the room too were superb. Borrowed DVDSs from reception and every member of staff we came across was so welcoming and friendly. Cannot praise this place enough… The addition of a pool really was the cherry on the top! Only gripe for us were the pillows… Feather and either SUPER huge and hard or super flat (not because they were old/used, just what was available) Will definitely visit again… With our own pillows 🙈

The Fernhill hotel is a delightful hotel midway between Charmouth and Lyme Regis, close to the coastal path (which gives stunning views of the coastline). It is a very beautiful area to visit. The small hotel has a very warm and welcoming feel and Jo and Rob are great hosts. The food was excellent and they were brilliant at coping with my coeliac diet and many other dietary needs, thank you! I would really recommend this hotel. Bedroom was very comfortable and great to have a kettle, fresh milk and gluten free biscuits in the room. Superb service, very helpful staff and great attention to detail made it a very relaxing stay. And of course relaxing by and swimming in the heated outdoor pool too. We have stayed here several times over the past few years and look forward to coming back to the Fernhill hotel again next year.
