“Great hotel standard - no hotel prices!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

A first class stay over the May Bank Holiday Monday weekend - 2 nights. Booking was really efficient and speedy by email. Very nice welcome on arrival - a very warm smile, a pot of tea, and a parking permit (absolutely essential in Corfe where parking can be really difficult).
This B&B is not like staying in someone's house - it's more like a restaurant with rooms. And lovely rooms they are, too - well equipped, very clean, good facilities (nice towels, etc.).
The food was excellent too - excellent cooked breakfast, but also a very nice place to stop for lunch.
All-in-all - couldn't fault it! A really nice village to stay in, and lovely accommodation to rest your head.

Room Tip: They're all excellent.

What a find! Situated in the heart of Corfe village Oliver's was perfect in nearly every way. The room was decorated to a very high standard with a seriously comfortable bed, high quality en-suite and plenty of storage space. Breakfast was served in the annexed cafe and is one of the best we have had served to us for a long time. Everyone was very (but not overly) attentive, warm and friendly.
Really can't recommend this place enough - in fact, we already have!
No more than a 5 minute walk from anything and the moment you leave Oliver's the view of the castle is simply stunning.
I'm sure, one day, we will return.

Not our first visit here but so glad to receive the same warm welcome from Paul and Leigh.
Last year we stayed within weeks of opening, the rooms are so fresh and full of the little things that make all the difference.
Breakfast keeps you going all day and the quality of the fare is excellent.
Service was over and above anything we could expect, sourcing a souvenir for us and making my birthday extra special.
Already reserved for next year.

Thank you!

Me, my boyfriend and friends stayed for a weekend to attend a wedding in Poole & Swanage. I have never been to Corfe castle before but I will certainly be going back.

Oliver's was a home from home and we were made very welcome, the rooms are amazing, the top bedrooms had wooden beams & perfect views! Our breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and if you were out early Leigh would happily make you up a packed lunch and leave it in the fridge for you.

There are a few parking spaces outside but you can only stay for an hour until 8pm, Leigh will give you a permit for £10 deposit which allows you to park in a private car park just around the corner which is very handy!

I will definitely be returning here in the near future, highly recommended

Leigh and Paul are first class. They truely went out of their way to help us when we had a nightmare with our car on the first day! And they got us back on the road so we could continue our holiday. Breakfast was the best we had for a long time, fresh, quick and didn't miss a thing. The rooms are spotless couldn't fault a thing in the Bankes Room. Regardless of the fact the B&B is lovely and Corfe is a place to forget the time and relax, we will visit again just to see Liegh and Paul. Fantastic couple doing a great job. Thank you for saving the day!

Room Tip: Bankes room is huge, with lots of space, good TV and gorgeous wood furniture, top floor so great vie...

Hello - Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on Olivers. You were most welcome to the help! At least it is something to tell your grandkids about your honeymoon, I have to say you were both really well spirited about the whole thing - you would be most welcome back anytime. Take care.

A warm welcome & a cup of tea awaits you on your arrival. Comfortable rooms & a delicious breakfasts. I particularly enjoyed the porridge, not to mention the yummy poached eggs.
Nothing is to much trouble to Leigh & Paul. They go more than the extra mile to make their guests stay as comfortable & as enjoyable as possible.

Thanks to both of you for looking after us so well.
