An excellent place to stay clean, friendly, a home from home. Caroline was very helpful with places to eat and places to visit. A great breakfast, a wide choice. Tea & coffee in room everyday.

Lovely setting and house. Very welcoming family and a huge effort made for guests. But, the mattress was worn out and needs replacing and despite being tastefully decorated, the room and bathroom were a bit pokey. Breakfast was good but would have liked more choice of breads. A very good place but definitely not the best we have been to.

We have bought a new bed and redecorated this room over the winter. Unfortunately we can't make the room any bigger but not bad for £70 per night!

My husband and I stayed at the Old Rectory for four nights after we got married (our 'mini-moon') and we had a wonderful stay. The Old Rectory is a lovely building in a beautiful rural setting. We stayed in the Dorchester room (with the four poster bed) and it was fabulous - spacious, luxurious and very comfortable. Breakfast in the conservatory was great (we couldn't help over-eating!).

Caroline was a perfect, charming host and provided great advice on places to see/visit and suggestions for pubs and restaurants. Everything she suggested was just the sort of thing we were after. Also, she very kindly chilled our champagne when we asked and was brilliant when, having finished our break and returned home, I had carelessly left some make-up behind - Caroline e-mailed to let me know and posted it back straight away.

With Caroline's help we were able to make the most of the location in beautiful Dorset and could have stayed a lot longer as there was still loads of places/attractions we would have liked to have visited, but we ran out of time.

Without doubt this is the best B&B we've stayed in and we hope to visit again very soon.

Our second visit to The Old Rectory. The house has been tastefully renovated to a very high standard. We have stayed in two of the bedrooms, both of which were beautifully decorated, spacious, and comfortable - especially the four poster!! Breakfast in the conservatory was first class, and Caroline was an exceptional host.

This is a wonderful place to stay in a pretty place in Dorset. I went back for the fourth time a couple of weeks ago (I don't stay anywhere else in Dorset any more!) - and had another brilliant stay. This time it was for a girls weekend away and we booked all of the rooms in the house - they are all very clean and spacious with spotless bathrooms and are well decorated.

Caroline was fantastic and always incredibly friendly and welcoming and made a huge effort to make sure we enjoyed our stay. She recommended a great place for dinner on Saturday evening and had local maps for us to use to plan our days. She seemed to know exactly what kind of weekend we wanted and was always helpful - chilling our champagne and drinks in her fridge, bringing us trays of tea in the living room and accommodating our manicure sets, cakes and chocolates - and even had a range of dvds that we could borrow.

I definitely intend to be back and recommend The Old Rectory to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay.
