The Anglebury House
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Wareham
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Staying near Corfe, so visited briefly for lunch. A window seat in the restaurant, which retains much of the character of the building. Polite and helpful service. A good range in the menu from traditional favourites like Ham egg and chips (my choice) to homemade pasta dishes (my wife). Served hot and fresh. Pasta was very rich and defeated my wife (she wanted to eat it all, she just could not manage the hearty portion). I would have liked a more traditional ham (it seemed a bit to 'packet' to me) and perhaps another slice, but that is just being pedantic. Hot chocolate was made with cocoa and real milk - good. We would come again.

Very disappointed to find this hotel very drab and dingy. The minute shower room smelt badly of sewage. Breakfast was passable. Kept being detained by a local who seemed to be some sort of handyman, a pretty undesirable character. Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone else

Comfortable hotel with good food, and a friendly coffee shop and bar filled with local people who want to share the pleasures of living in the Purbecks with you.. An excellent base for touring the area. This is a 16th century hotel where the uneven floor, low beams and inglenook fireplaces remind you of days when a coach and horses instead of a combustion engine would deliver you to the door. However the food is definiitely 21st century with an excellent selection of dishes. Also Lawence of Arabia, yes the one with the turban, regularly took his coffee in the coffee shop. You can sit in the seat where he sat.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very individual because of the age of the building, however we were offered a choi...

The car parking was very tight and limited. We had to step into on-coming traffic on a corner to get to the street-front to reach the entrance. Our rooms were an ok size, with ensuites, but the cleanliness of the carpets was limited to say the least and they were very dated. The headboards were grotty and we really did not want to touch them.
The restaurant/bar was advertised as open from 7pm but on our first night there was no sign of any service as the owners had left and there were no other staff.
Breakfast was a saving grace and there were new tv's in the rooms.
I just couldn't see us staying there again. Such a shame. Two nights was far too long.

Stayed here for one night in late July. We really needed a place to stay as the weather was so nice and we wanted an extra day holiday. We booked without reading reviews as it was the only place nearby that had availability for three people.

Prior to arrival, we thought we made a grave mistake. Other reviews say the place is dirty and staff not very good etc. However, let me assure you that this is incorrect.

The Bad

- the hotel is a little bit dated. Dated, not unclear. It is a bit medieval in character, lots of wooden beams, just be careful of the low ceilings!
-small portion of cereal at breakfast!
- room was clean, but some of the beams in the room were a little bit dusty
- the bathroom was a bit 1970's, could do with an update. It was a horrible green colour.
- there were some neighbours chatting in the back yard til the early morning.

The Good

- parking behind and on street in front
- very accommodating staff
- breakfast was very tasty, and included in the price. It was not greasy, as another reviewer has stated. Cereal, full english and toast and tea. As another reviewer has said, it is served when you like, so you can sleep in if you like!
- beds were comfortable and very clean.
- lots of storage space in the room
- very good location in the town. Can walk to nearby Sainsbury etc.


All in all, I would say that this was a very pleasant stay, and I would have no reluctance in staying there again.

It cost us £85 for a room sleeping 3 adults, including breakfast.

A family run hotel where the whole family really put body and soul into looking after their guests. Breakfast was included in the price and was served at a time to suit the guests' needs whether it be early or mid-morning. Food is of the highest standard and meals are made to order. Small friendly bar where the patRons are only too willing to involve you in the conversation and to pass on any information you may need to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Book early as rooms are always in demand
