Reviewed 22 October 2013

Good location, was exactly what I needed. Very well hosted. Good breakfast, comfortable bed. Slept perfectly. Good shower. Breakfast could not have offered more choice, and all cooked freshly. Will return and cannot recommend highly enough

For a one night stay, Bay Tree fitted the bill. Bed was very comfy with good linen, mod cons and nice ensuite. Breakfast was great with a selection available.

Private and quiet. Owner (Gary) was very keen to ensure we had a comfortable and stressless stay.

I booked into the Bay tree house as a safety spot on visiting family. All I can say is we were made to feel so welcome by Gary, greeted with fresh coffee what a treat after a 6 hour drive.
The room (2) was very comfortable and the facilities were great. The best part of all was the breakfast no complaints at all plenty of choice and very tasty.
We will be back again and thanks again Gary

I travel on business a lot and meet a lot of fellow traellers but they are usually men. Here for the first time I have found I found business women in the majority. Is there a secret business women in B ad B network that I don't know about? If so I am not surprised they buzz about this place. From the moment I walked through the door I felt that our host Gary completely understood what a business traveller would need - including instant clear instructions on where to find a meal. Good desk, free and reliable wifi, and iron in room all help a lot. Add to that an excellent breakfast, a super room with comfortable bed. I had no time to watch the tV (desk and wifi mattered more). Great shower with high quality toiletries (this is rapidly becoming my measure of quality I have had nearly enough of some anonymous fluid that could be repackaged industrial cleaner).

Room Tip: Room number 2.

Gary made us so welcome and we both appreciated his kindness. Bedroom had a very comfortable bed and the bathroom was large and newly refurbished. The breakfast was really good, fresh fruit, juice and cooked breakfast in a beautiful sun room. We stayed 1 night only but that was because we had to make up some travel time.

What a gem of a place. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast with plenty of choice and very friendly. Gary couldn't do enough for you. You are made really welcome its a excellent place to stay. It's 5 minutes walk away from the town centre and if you can't find a place on the off road parking there is the street with ample room to park. We would thoroughly recommend this B and B

We found this B&B when looking on the internet for somewhere to stay in Dorchester for a couple of nights. So pleased we chose this one! We had to phone Gareth when we arrived as he was at the cafe they own in the town centre. But they had provided a lovely little bench to sit on by their front door! He was only 10minutes. As we were away from home for a couple of weeks doing various things we had a couple of larger cases but Gareth carried them both up to our room on the 2nd floor. Very comforting room and good ensuite. We even had a tv rising out of the end of our bed much to my delight! Free wifi too.
The house was very tastefully decorated in a contemporary style. Breakfast was taken in the dining room round one table. Food was fabulous. Plenty of fresh fruit in all guises, yoghurt, cereals, lovely cooked items with eggs how you wanted them straight from their own chickens. Gareth and Nicola owned a cafe/bistro in the town centre which we tried out, getting a 10% discount. About 15 minutes walk into town, a lovely place to visit. Do go to the museum and see Thomas Hardy exhibition. Some nice restaurants and pubs too - my husband had a pint of Piddle! Would most definitely stay there again.
