We received a lovely warm welcome from Neil and Rosemarie upon arrival. Our room was lovely and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the bedding was luxurious. Breakfast was delicious, all produce was top quality. A good location for visiting Lyme Regis, Seaton and Beer.

We stayed at the Dower House Hotel over the Easter weekend for a friends 60th birthday. We were met by both Neil and Rosemarie and showed the beautifully presented hotel rooms, dining room and bar area. I cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from these guys who went over and above our expectations to make our stay...

We stayed in this special room for a short break when visiting River Cottage for a cooking course and for my husband's birthday treat. The decor is very opulent purple and silver. The bed is enormous and extremely comfortable.The room is dominated by a fabulous copper bath on a plinth with atmospheric low level lighting- you can even watch the...

Stayed for two nights in the room that has French window doors that open out into beautiful garden. The room was very comfortable though the furnishings and decor in the bar were not our taste this was the only thing we found slightly out of keeping with such a pretty house and location just outside of Lyne Regis. The owners...

We spent three nights in this comfortable small hotel in the country but close by car to Lyme Regis, Beer and other great places to visit. It was a good location and we were made very welcome. Both Neil and Rosemarie take great care of their guests. A taxi into Lyme Regis for dinner costs about £8 and we had...

Neil and Rosemarie are perfect hosts, warm and hospitable. We stayed in the Austen Suite which is large with a huge, comfy four-poster bed. The room was warm and comfortable. The bathroom, a wet room, is stylish with thick towels and waffle dressing gowns. Breakfast was excellent, a wide range of choices with place of honour going to the locally...

Having stayed in the Lyme Regis area several times over the last 20 years, we have at last found a hotel in the area which did not disappoint! Well done to the owners, who offer a friendly, family run residence, full of special little personal touches that were noticed and appreciated. The location was excellent, with more than ample parking,...
