The Ancient Mariner
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Overnight stay following a trip to Bridport to collect furniture. Husband booked through late rooms for £46.00 for luxury double suite inc continental breakfast. Huge car park and newly built accommodation block at rear of very old inn that is opposite the home of Samuel Coleridge...hence the name. We were warmly greeted by Leigh who showed us to our room and made us very welcome. Room was large and airy with all mod cons huge wet room with complimentary toiletries and the bed was queen size!
We ate in the pub and although reasonable in price it was just pub fare. We spent a pleasant evening chatting weith another couple of guests and our host Leigh in the bar and then retired to a comfortable nights sleep. We upgraded to a full english breakfast and Leigh served while his wife Jen cooked, we were accompanied in the breakfast room by 8month old Harry and 4 year old Chloe, 2 of the hosts 3 children. Like I said, it's a family run place and if you object to the little ones and some toys then probably not for you. Breakfadt was great, hot and good portions. Jen checked us out and was conviviality at it's best. All in all a pleasant stay and IT would go back again.
