Great location in the centre of Corfe Castle near all the attractions. Comfy bed, very good bathroom, well decorated and maintained room. Mineral water and coffee/tea is standard. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice. Hosts very flexible on breakfast contents and time of.
Car Parking permit is great. Five minutes walk to Corfe Castle and the Steam railway. Had a really relaxing break.

Lovely B&B in a lovely location. Very welcoming and helpful hosts - excellent facilities right down to the homemade biscuits in our room. Will need to try out the restaurant for lunch next time. Definitely will be returning.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Olivers. Really glad you enjoyed Davinia's shortbread, It came about due to feedback from another customer who was hungry when she arrived late at night. We just make smaller versions of the coffee house shortbread and put them in pretty bags! Thank you again for your review.

My cousin and I recently stayed at Oliver's for one night and I have to say it was easily the most friendly and welcoming stay I've had in a very long time. Leigh and Paul were truly fantastic hosts and couldn't do more to make us feel comfortable.

We stayed in the Bankes room which was not only beautifully decorated but spacious too. We were given recommendations for things to do during our short stay, including a trip to Swanage which was thoroughly enjoyed.

Breakfast was absolutely fantastic, thank you Davinia! We both enjoyed a full english which came with ample portions.

All in all a very short but sweet stay at Oliver's. We will definitely be back, thank you Leigh and Paul.

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.
