I am familiar with this hotel as I have visited Corfe many times and have always stopped in the garden for tea. Had to sit indoors this visit as it was a bit damp and miserable so we cheered ourselves up with a champagne cream tea. Although the scones are a little small, they were fresh, warm and delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive and all around us the food other customers were eating looked and smelled lovely. My friend and I both commented on something that we found pleasantly odd - the crockery used at the hotel seemed to ensure our tea remained piping hot - either their choice of tableware is better than we are used to (and we do like a cream tea!) or they have managed to find a way to super-boil their water, either way the pot was lovely and hot till the end which enabled us to enjoy our glass on bubbly too. OK - it's a bit pricey for an afternoon tea but we had just arrived and wanted to treat ourselves and I wanted my friend, who was on her first visit to Corfe, to enjoy her stay in the area. The hotel appears to be welcoming and cosy - I would like to stay there one day, plus the restaurant did have a very tempting menu so may suit if you were there for a special occasion and they did not appear to me to be overly priced for a hotel.
