“Fantastic B&B, will aim to return one day! ”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Bay Tree House as I was attending a medical appointment near by and upon extensive research of the area, Bay Tree House seemed to be a cut above the rest of the accommodation available .... And we were not proved wrong, this really is an amazing B&B!

We booked the guest house last minute and Gary (one of the owners) managed to do all of the booking over text (which helped me due to shift work). We were going to arrive late but nothing was too much trouble and we had a wonderful welcome when we arrived. Gary was attentive but not over bearing. We stayed in room 6 which was an excellent size and extremely clean. We had a bath (we requested this and Gary happily obliged)in a lovely modern bathroom and slept extremely soundly is a fab (huge!!) bed with luscious bedding.

In the morning we were greeted to an excellent breakfast of fresh fruit salads and cereals, and a choice of cooked breakfast. I couldn't recommend the cooked breakfast more, it was delicious local meats, not greasy and served with a smile! It was a highlight.

We used the 'on-site' parking and Gary was happy for us to park there and walk into town for the rest of the day. The guest house is situated only 10-15 min walk from the centre of Dorchester which is worth a visit. Ideal location for the Jurassic Coast line and the plethora of local pubs!

Our stay was comfortable, clean and friendly, we couldn't ask for more!

This is an excellent Bed and Breakfast the best in Dorchester. Spotlessly clean, the food is freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. Gary and Nicola Cutler make you feel very welcome, nothing is ever an effort. I recommend The Walnut Grove Coffee Shop too in Durngate which Nicola runs. This has a fabulous atmosphere all the staff are happy and smiling; one can get a lovely home cooked meal at a very reasonable price the house wine is good too. Top ratings for the B&B and The Walnut Grove.

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.
