“Excellent Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

We stayed here recently for just 1 night but would have happily stayed longer. Accommodation is spotlessly clean and the bed is extremely comfortable. The welcome was genuine and all the facilities one could wish for. Breakfast was five star. Nothing was too much trouble for Julie and David. Highly recommended to any traveller.

Room Tip: If you want a good pub meal - try the Marquiss of Lorne which is just down the road. Really good fo...

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently as we were going to a wedding nearby. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless and the breakfast was delicious with plenty to keep us fueled for most of the day! The afternoon tea on arrival was exactly what we needed after a slightly stressful journey. The high-pressure shower was a nice change to our electric shower back home!

We had never stayed at a B&B before and we had no idea what to expect, but Julie and David made it a truly fantastic experience.

The room was not huge, but it didn't need to be. It was beautifully furnished and immaculate, with a very comfy bed and oodles of pillows. The en suite was small, but it had everything we needed, including a very powerful shower which I never wanted to get out of!

Julie and David are a really friendly couple and really helped us feel at home, but we were disappointed that we only got to meet one of the cats (who was very well behaved and happily watched us eat our breakfast without cadging even once). Breakfast was amazing, especially the home-made toast, and we had more than enough to eat.

I don't think we could find fault with anything and would definitely recommend Quigley to anyone!

We always really appreciate it when guests take the time to post a review, and on this occasion, I think it must have been the minute they arrived home!
So thank you both very much, you must have had the best weather this year!
Very pleased to hear you enjoyed your first stay in a B & B, it was great to meet you, we love oodles of pillows too and the fantastic showers, on the top of the list for most guests when away I think.
Best wishes, Julie & David (:-

David and Julie were willing and happy to do whatever they could to make us welcome and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Lovely bed linen and great shower! Wonderful breakfast served in guests own lounge/diner. Perfect for a relaxing break in a beautiful area.

My partner and I stayed at Quigley over Easter and had a lovely time. We had a fantastic welcome with tea and homemade cake and David went to extra special trouble to accommodate my wheat intolerance by making delicious flapjacks and wheat free bread. The bed was super comfey, the shower amazing and the room was really nicely decorated. We also had the use of a lovely lounge with a stunning view, friendly tabby cat and a toasty warm open fire. David and Julie were the perfect hosts and like a good chinwag as much as we do. All in all the best B&B experience I've had and it'll be hard to top!

How very kind of you, as you can tell, we love our job and it's the icing on the cake when our guests enjoy the experience we offer. I think our friends and family would agree that a good chinwag is what we love to do, although we do appreciate that some guests get away for a bit of peace and relaxation and we offer that too!
David loves the challenge of a new recipe, as a Chef by trade, he itches to get into the kitchen to try something different! Do request your favourite cake when you book! Mine's chocolate, and lemon drizzle, and Dorset apple cake and........ that's enough!!!
Thank you both again for being such great guests and hope to see you again. Julie (:-

Beautiful, comfortable and clean rooms with one of the best powerful showers I've ever experienced. The hosts, Julie and David, made us feel very comfortable and welcome, like old friends. Would absolutely recommend this B&B for a peaceful break in the lovely Dorset countryside.

The hosts were very welcoming. The room was small, the bathroom can only be described as a corridor. Everything was clean and fresh. Hot drinks could only be made in Lounge/Breakfast room, not very convenient. At £90 not the best value we have had recently.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, constructive comments are always very useful
and it was great meeting you both.
David and I thoroughly enjoy welcoming guests into our home, often spending time chatting over a cup of tea with homemade cake by the fire in the Guest lounge and found this has worked really well, replenishing everything and putting out fresh milk and cups when needed at all times of the day.We will now offer guests a drinks tray in the bedrooms if required, and appreciate you mentioning this.
Yes, the rooms aren't huge, but hopefully the light, clean fresh decor, great quality beds and Egyptian cotton bedding makes for a restful nights sleep and the comfortable guest lounge gives the extra room to relax, read by the log fire, or pour over the maps planning the next days activities whilst enjoying a glass of wine.
The en-suites do have fabulous power showers with endless high pressure piping hot water and luxury white bath sheets & toiletries hopefully leaving guests feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!

Kind Regards Julie Woodroffe
