“Genuine hospitality and warmth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

I stayed at the Dunton Guest House last year. I had not booked to stay with them but found that following storm damage to the B&B that I booked I had been switched to Dunton.

I must admit to being a little wary as on checking with Tripadvisor there wasn't a single review.

I had no need for concern. Dunton was excellent and in many ways a hidden gem.

The clientele are a mix of long term stayers (mainly business people there for 3-6 months) and short term stayers like me. I did meet a couple of the long term stayers who were well impressed with Dunton. I can understand why.

The complex is a mix of apartments and studios built around a lovely restful garden. The rooms comfortable, modern and well equipped. However, it was the gracious and generous hospitality that truly impressed me. I felt more like a visiting relative/friend rather than a paying guest. The owners went out of their way to be welcoming and accommodating. I spend almost 100 nights a year away from home and it is rare to see this sort of genuine hospitality - when you do relish it !

The food, particularly the breakfast was delightful. Enjoying fresh, well prepared food in the garden setting - just great.

Would I return to Dunton - unequivocally yes and would I recommend a stay here - absolutely.

It is a hidden gem and well worth consideration.
