We have just come back from another stay at Aquila Heights. We stay there once or twice a year tto visit friends opposite who don't have any spare beds!
As with every visit, the quality of the welcome, the room, the breakfast, etc was superb. I reviewed it the first time we stayed here and gave it 5 stars and nothing has slipped during the intervening 4 years. There is still more choice of breakfast cereals and preserves than in your average Tesco's and the range of cooked breakfasts would put almost every 5* hotel in the country in the shade. The day after we left we stayed at another B&B near Exeter which was very nice and a similar price but was three leagues lower than Joan's place. You could stay at the newly completed and totally faceless Premier Inn in Dorchester but for the same money you be treated like a long lost friend and provided with all the comforts of home (or the home you wish you had!!).
