“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This was our first stay at this Hotel. We chose it for its proximity to level walks for my mother. It turned out to be the right Hotel chosen for the wrong reason. All the staff were great. They couldn't have been more helpful. They were attentive without being intrusive. All the food was first class, with an extensive choice. Both our bedrooms were large and freshly decorated. Our bathroom had been recently refitted to a high standard, my mothers bathroom was awaiting improvement. I was assured by my wife that the standard of cleanliness throughout the Hotel was excellent. This Hotel is well worth a visit and we look forward to visiting again soon.

we have stayed at the haddon a few times now over the past few years and the visit we had last year in june was by far the best, the rooms had been updated and were looking lovely, very clean and with a nice warm welcome
the food was outstanding and by far the best in the area
my husband goes fishing early and it was no problem at all when i asked jo(themanager) if she would mind asking the kitchen staff to prepare him bacon and sausage sandwiches so i could take them to him on the riverside as he was missing his breakfast.
on one occasion i was given a thermol flask so i could take him hot tea, which was very kind and very much appreciated.
i would have no problem recommending the haddon hotel for great accommodation and excellent food and friendly service.
thanks to all of you we will be coming back
would be great if you had a room that accepted dogs too.
kind regards mrs pryer

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. We have had a lot of refurbishment as of late and are now half way through doing all the bathrooms aswell so to read that you appreciate this is very pleasing. With regards to dogs we have in the past but since refurbishing we prefer not to allow dogs some people are allergic and it can casue issues.

We stayed for three nights over the Easter weekend and couldn't have hoped for better.
The room was a great size, very comfortable, lovely views over the back and extremely clean. In fact it is fair to say that the whole hotel - public areas and all, were absolutely spotless all weekend - despite being very busy.
The bed was very comfortable with ample pillows and tons of storage space in the room, with what so many hotel rooms lack - lots of mirrors including a full length one. It also had well stocked tea and coffee with a proper teapot and cups and saucers. There was always plenty of hot water in the good sized bathroom, with a full sized bath and shower over, and again with a decent mirror over the sink. There were complimentary toiletries and no issue with clean and fluffy towels.
We were checked in by a lovely man called Darren who served us most evenings in the well stocked bar and were served at breakfast by Joanne and her lovely staff.
They couldn't do enough and really gave the place a lovely friendly feel all weekend,
The breakfasts were excellent all weekend with everything freshly cooked to order, and plenty of choice..
The short walk to West Bay was nice and the bay itself a lovely place to stroll and people watch over the busy bank holiday weekend. We ate in the restaurant one evening and as with breakfast we couldn't fault the food or the service at all. Joanne was very helpful when we couldn't decide and clearly knew her menu very well. The two of us had scallops and crab cakes to start and then fresh trout and pork belly for main course, finished off with one of their many deserts and a cheese board with port and coffee! None of the food could be faulted and we ate again later in the weekend, having a roast Sunday afternoon - proving that our evening meal wasn't a one off - this again was absolutely delightful.
There was always plenty of parking even during the Sunday lunch serving - which was extremely popular with locals and residents alike.
My only complaint - well I can't find one other than the fact that we should have eaten there every evening - and definitely will when we return.
Can't recommend it highly enough and will return for sure. As others have said "a 3* hotel (deserving of more in my view) with a 5* restaurant".

I was recommended to stay at the Haddon House and was not disappointed.

My room was spacious, clean and with a very comfortable bed.

I dined in the restaurant during my stay. I opted for scallops for starters and they were divine! I had a rump steak for main which was accompanied by some lovely veg and chips. I don't normally have desert but I did opt for some bread and butter pudding which was very tasty.

I enjoyed my breakfast the following morning and it was nice to stay in a hotel where the breakfast is cooked to order. No dreadful buffet breakfast like most chain hotels.

The location was prefect for my stay and it was nice to stroll round West Bay after my dinner.

A superb family run hotel. I have to return to West Bay again shortly and I will ensure that I book into the Haddon House.

A faultless experience!!

I booked this hotel blind and I was not disappointed. This is a family run hotel superb. Room was very comfortable and clean. The main highlight was the food. This is a 3* hotel with a 5* restaurant and service, beautiful food and superb service. The staff also have a very good knowledge of the area and what's going on out and about.

We were visiting a relative in Bridport the next day (15th Feb) and thought we'd stay overnight in West Bay. The hotel and room exceeded our expectations. Our room had recently been stylishly refurbished and was very comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our Valentine's meal was very good as was the breakfast, which is cooked to order. The hotel is close to West Bay Harbour which is just right for a post breakfast/dinner walk, weather permitting! If we need to stay in West Bay again, we will definitely choose this hotel.

We visit Haddon House every year and always have a great time. Jo, Paul and the staff make us very welcome and we regard them as friends as well as excellent hosts. The breakfasts and evening meals are thoroughly recommended. The rooms have always been very comfortable and well furnished but are now being updated with new bathroom suites.
We usually stay for a long weekend but have also spent a week here. We always look forward to coming back - if you are planning to visit this lovely part of England then this is definitely the place to stay!
Will be coming back soon,
Alan & Chrissie
