Lantern House
Ranked #20 of 45 Dorchester B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 September 2012

Pauline & Geoff made us feel very welcome and were warm and friendly. The room was spotless, well laid out and the bed very comfortable. The perfect placed to stay for walking distance access to the town centre or for getting out and about. A really nice B & B with lots of thought gone into it by the owners, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Recommend the Green room

Had a very enjoyable stay at Lantern House which is situated about 5 minutes walk from Dorchester town. Lantern House offers bed and breakfast, but what a bed and breakfast. The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up, it was one of the best nights sleep we have ever had. The room was spot on, lovely and clean with lots of room to relax, en-suite facilities were also spotless and very good. The breakfast was excellent, we plumped for full English but if you can't manage that then you can chose cereals, toast or fruit. This was a very enjoyable stay and I would recommend Lantern House to anyone, especially for the price.

Geof and Pauline are amazing hosts, friendly, considerate and accommodating. We had a few out of the mainstream requests that they took quick care of.

We had the front bedroom which had an amazing view of the Borough Gardens. The bed was the best we'd ever slept in. The room was spotless with a nice attached bathroom.

Breakfast was great, well-cooked, lots of choice.

I honestly cannot imagine how our stay here could have gone better. We'll be back!!!

The location was comfortable walking distance to the centre of Dorchester and a local supermarket.

Room Tip: Loved the front bedroom. Ensuite bathroom and great view!!!

Stayed here recently with my four year old grandson. The Lantern House is located directly opposite the park and playground; convenient parking just around the corner or the station is nearby. The house is spotlessly clean and fresh, with comfortable beds. We did not have an ensuite bathroom as we took the twin room, however, this presented no problem. Breakfast is taken round a large shared table and there was a good choice of freshly cooked food. There are many restaurants within walking distance for an evening meal. The sun shone, so we ventured no further than the beach at Weymouth but there are so many other family friendly places to visit close by.
Pauline and Geoff are friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts.
