Hidden in the stunning countryside, just outside Bridport is The Marquis of Lorne... The first view of the property took our breath away, it is stunning. Plenty of outside space, there are two gardens, one with a fabulous children's activity area) which are separated by a large hedge, which is gives you the choice of a quite space away from the kiddies. Also a lovely patio space outside the front of the hotel.
The inside does not disappoint either, lots of lovely nooks, crannies & beams. We stayed in room 1, which was lovely & roomy, we also had a short visit to room 4, which was equally well furnished to a high standard. Ensuite was modern, spotless & lots of shelving & the bed made for sweet dreams.
We had planned to eat just the one night in the restaurant, then sample others, but were so blown away by the food, that we ate there our second night as well. I could have stayed for a week & sampled all dishes on the lush menu, but then again it would be so difficult not return to previous dishes. In fact himself changed his mind about four times on the second night & then had the dressed crab for a second night running.
I could wax lyrical about this wonderful hostelry for ages, the wonderful hosts & their staff, they made us feel more like extended family, then paying guests.
I cannot recommend the Marquis of Lorne highly enough & we will definitely be returning.
