“Lovely weekend in idyllic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Dorset House was absolutely spot on for what we were after, a little bit of luxurious pampering in a very lovely, small, discrete hotel. Our 'Seaview' room was perfect for my husband and I and our nine year-old son. He was very happy to be ensconced in his comfy sofa bed with multiple pillows and cushions at the end of a hard day eating fish and chips and cream teas on the beach in Lyme and pottering about for fossils on the under cliffs. Lyn and Jason's breakfast was delicious and hearty (they unflinchingly responded to my husband's cheeky request for a third fried egg!). The help-your-self bar was ideal early on in Saturday evening when we fancied a chilled glass of chablis. Can't recommend Dorset House highly enough. We have already booked it for a party of ten for my husband's fiftieth in a couple of years' time.

We have just spent a night at the Dorset House B&B. Having never stayed in a B&B before was not sure what to expect. The place looked great on the website and did not disappoint. Beautifully decorated, lovely shower room, comfy beds, chilled water on arrival, rounded of with a delicious breakfast. We will definitely return. Perfect B&B (more boutique hotel). The only negative (which has nothing to do with Dorset House) was that there is no onsite parking and Lyme Regis was very busy when we arrived so it took us a while to park. Having said that it would not put me off, I loved it!

Room Tip: Lighthouse Suite is great if travelling with a child as the sofa bed is in separate lounge area

The owners of this hotel have done everything to make your stay an excellent one. Jason is a very friendly and relaxed host. Breakfast consists of fresh melon, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries and mint, plus yoghurt, home made Grenola, about 5 different types of bread followed by a delicious cooked breakfast and wonderful cake (presumably made by Lynn). The decor throughout the house is a perfect mix of old and new - very tastefully done.. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom excellent and the hospitality tray of a very high standard. You would have to go a long way to match the atmosphere in this hotel and the service offered. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Although there is no parking on site we parked for free in a nearby road without any problem. If you are 60 or over and reading this review please just be aware that Lyme Regis is very hilly.

Room Tip: We had probably the smallest room (the 'porthole' room). Go for a larger room if possible.

Looking for a stand out Bed & Breakfast hotel in the Dorset/Devon area for my birthday treat to Sunday Lunch at River Cottage I could not have been happier with my choice. This beautiful, Regency style hotel was absolutely perfect . Could not find fault with anything from the room (heavenly bed linen) ultra modern bathroom with gorgeous Ren toiletries & delicious breakfast with too many options to go in to here . Wish we could have stayed more than one night . Thank you Lyn & Jason for the bubbly with our welcome afternoon tea , even though my birthday was 9 months before !

Room Tip: Stayed in 'Church View' but this room also has sea views. Smaller bathroom than other rooms...

Wish we could have stayed longer! The house, rooms and views were beautiful. Lyn and Jason have a great balance of attentive service in a relaxed way and they have thought of everything iPod docking station in rooms, REN toiletries, great linens and fantastic shower. Beautiful eye for design and details. Great location with a short walk to the beach. Only down side is no parking but we found parking just 100 metres from the house. Would definitely return!

Where to start? Great location, great room, great decor, great hosts, great views, great shower, incredible breakfast, I think that covers most of it. If you are lucky enough to find a room available here you will be in for a treat. Jason and Lyn have clearly put a lot of thought, time and effort into creating Dorset House and it shows. The biggest disappointment was having to leave but I will definitely be back.

Dorset house has been lovingly refurbished by the new owners and the decor and restoration work is first class. The hosts were friendly, helpful and charming. The breakfast was freshly cooked and full of good quality, locally sourced produce. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
