I wanted to stay in Hinton St Mary as I was attending William Fox Pitt's Open Day. Catherine was very patient as I nearly didn't drive down to Dorset as Storm Katie looked awful. The room was spotlessly clean, the room very nicely decorated and overall more like a good hôtel as dressings gowns and lovely body lotions etc were...

We arrived after a long drive to a very welcome pot of tea and a plate biscuits before retiring to our bright, clean, comfortable bedroom. We had a wonderful dinner in a local hotel followed by an excellent night's sleep. A powerful hot shower and a delicious breakfast set us up for a walk through fields and majestic woodland and...

Small B&B in lovely old village Post Office. I stayed two nights here; the room was very quiet and well appointed, with en-suite bathroom. The welcome was very warm and the whole place perfectly clean. Lovely cooked brakfast too. A great place to find and one of the nicest B&Bs I have stayed at in the UK.

We only stayed here for one night as we were visiting the Sturminster Newton cheese fair. Lovely place and the lady who ran it was very friendly. It's one of the cleanest b&b's I've ever stayed in and the room was lovely with a very spacious en suite. Nice breakfast in the morning to set us up for our day....

On entering we received a warm welcome and a cup of tea. The room was very nice and clean. The bathroom, which was not directly in the room, was enormous big and beautiful. We even had bath coats on the room to go there. The (English breakfast was delicious, not overdone. In the beautiful garden you can get a good...

Needing a b&b while visiting the Sturminster Newton cheese festival we decided upon the old post office. What a good choice we made. As soon as you enter the lobby you know how clean and tidy the place is kept. The guests lounge is like the bedroom, very comfortable, a home from home. If ever were that way again we...

If you want a cosy, perfectly clean and well attended bed and breakfast , then don't hesitate. It's all that and more. I personally missed a TV in my bedroom and always prefer an en suite bathroom. The road noise was also an issue for me though to be fair the traffic isn't excessive through the night. The breakfast was...
