Yet Another Lovely Stay - Faultless!
A lovely warm welcome from the hosts on arrival.
The room was spotless and the breakfast delicious!
We were here for a course at River Cottage for which the Dower House is perfectly placed.
This was my second visit and I’ll definitely be back!
Thank you!

Dear Claire - thank you for a lovely review and we are so pleased you chose to stay with us again for your course at RC HQ! It was a pleasure to meet your mum and see you soon! Neil and Rosemarie

Beautiful House
A beautiful house with much attention to detail. The bar lacked atmosphere and would have benefited from use of the fire and the many available candles on a wet november night.
Room large but cosy with an amazing bed as you would expect for the cost per night.

Excellent breakfast and warm friendly
Owners.

Dear Debra thank you for your lovely review of the Dower House and of course the Austen Suite! We are pleased you enjoyed your night with us! Im so sorry i did not light the candles as i normally do, that was indeed my fault! We do indeed hope you will both come and stay again with us, best wishes Neil and Rosemarie

A Little Bit Special .....
A luxurious room (Austen) with period features but modern amenities. The shower was immense. The breakfast was full of flavour and cooked well. The hosts were gregarious and warm. We’ll definitely return even if just to spend time in the bar which was full of character with a wood burning fire ....

Friendly Relaxed Atmosphere
The whole experience was a pleasure. We were made to feel not only welcome but at home. Everything mentioned when making an he reservation was remembered and taken into consideration. The staff were very attentive but gave everyone the space they wanted to do what they wanted. A good mix of private and public areas, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something nice in this area.

Very Welcoming
The owners couldn’t be more warm and helpful, making sure at all times that we had everything we needed. My little dog was welcomed and even offered a breakfast, It really was like staying in a home rather than a hotel, friendly and personal. It is very conveniently placed for visiting River Cottage Kitchen in Axminster, where the hotel has an arrangement for residents to benefit from a discount.

Wonderful In Every Way
We stayed at the Dower House yesterday for one night and I can certainly say this house was not Douer!! everything about the hotel was wonderful - the two owners run it like a B and B in so much as they treat you with a real personal touch and it feels like you are in a cosy home but not any old cosy home a luxurious beautiful cosy home its not a B and B it is definitely a wonderful Hotel.... kept beautifully - fab outdoor space with great decking area and lovely views, lovely indoor sitting area and well stocked bar too - I had a great Cornish Clotted Cream gin!! The location is great just a short drive away to a few different lovely villages towns and beaches - we randomly found a great little local town called The Rebel Town of Colyton. At the Dower house we booked a really lovely room but due to an unexpected last minute cancellation they upgraded us to an extra luxurious room - so it was happiness all round for us - the pool was great too - it wasn\'t a mega sunny day but as the pool is nicely heated it was really pleasant to have a wee dip. breakfast was good also. I give the hotel 5 stars for everything and can\'t thank them enough for their lovely hospitality

Very friendly and helpful proprietors and staff, comfortable rooms and the benefit of a wet room style shower - very important for the mature guest. The breakfasts are simple but prepared to the guests specification.
If the internet connection had worked then there would be 5 stars - when it did work it was good but that was a rare occurrence during our stay. Even for the mature guest the availability of the internet is important in todays world - for example that is how many of us receive our news(papers).

Excellent Stay
Great hotel, wonderful room, plush towels. Great sociable and helpful owners. Only gripes are that we were overcharged with one taxi firm that they recommended ( maybe the hotel should check rates first). Also could have had more up to date magazines in the lounge for the ladies. Otherwise excellent and would stay again.

Fantastic Place With Top-notch Hosts
Stayed here for a few days in the amazing French Lieutenant\'s suite. Neil and Rosemarie are top hosts who make you feel very welcome. Fully stocked bar, heated outdoor swimming pool, beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside - what\'s not to like? Breakfast included, but evening meals by special arrangement only. However, plenty of decent restaurants within a short drive. Highly recommended.

The hotel and grounds are well kept. There are plenty of areas to sit outside in the grounds, by the pool, or patio or inside in the bar area. The cooked breakfast was always hot and cooked to order with plenty of choice on the full English menu. The staff who served us were always on hand and very pleasant. We had 2 great evening meals during our stay, again these were enjoyed by all of us.

Can\'t Wait To Return
This place is a must to stay at if you have the opportunity
The grounds and hotel itself are beautiful, the food is first class and the owners & their staff should write the training manual for all other hotels.

Sadly we only got to stay for two nights as we were in the area for a Wedding, but on the drive home we were already planning when we can return for a longer stay.

The hotel is extremely dog-friendly but if that is not for you then there is no need to meet up with any canines and a number of the rooms are always kept dog free so no need to be put off if you have an allergy.

The owners, Neil & Rosemary, are great fun and do everything possible to make their guests feel at home from home.

By far the best hotel I have ever stayed in in the UK.

Loved Our Weekend Break
We stayed for a weekend with our dog. We have never stayed in a hotel with the dog before and we were so pleasantly surprised.
We had the Cobb room which is like a separate annex, with it\'s own front door and enclosed garden.
We were quite delayed because of traffic problems and it was so nice to be shown our lovely room and it made the long journey all worthwhile.
I honestly can not think of anything I could fault as Neil and Rosemary have thought of everything.
It\'s a beautiful hotel and the hosts are so friendly and accommodating.
The breakfasts were lovely and all good produce used. The dogs even get there own sausage for breakfast which pleased our dog very much - although she won\'t be getting that at home!

The enclosed paddock for the dogs to run around in was such a good idea, and our little cockapoo got to meet the resident dogs, who were adorable.

We loved the White Company toiletries but now my husband is complaining that our towels aren\'t as soft and fluffy as the towels here!

To summarise the hotel is wonderful and the hosts are perfect! Thank you for a lovely stay.

High Quality Hotel Recommended
This hotel is a short distance out of Lyme Regis. It is a lovely building having had careful thought to its atmosphere and furnishings by the owners. It is immaculate and of high quality. Very comfortable and superb accommodation. Heated outdoor pool and small but excellent bar. The owners are very friendly, fun and welcoming , accommodating all our needs but ensuring utter professionalism. Well behaved dogs are accepted. Breakfast is super and an evening meal can be prebooked if required.Equally as good.

Fantastic And Excellent
We were given a warm welcome by Rosemarie when we arrived for our long weekend break.
We stayed in the French Lieutenants Suite, which definitely had the wow factor, complete with an amazing copper bath set by the bay window with lovely views across open fields.
The suite was very well decorated,clean and very spacious. The walk in shower in the en-suite was excellent too.
The super king bed was extremely comfortable so a good night\'s sleep was guaranteed.
The Nespresso machine was an added bonus, and the Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day
This hotel was so amazing, relaxing, comfortable and beautifully decorated we can\'t wait for a return visit.

Neil and Rosemarie made us very welcome, our room (Cobb Suite) was perfect for us with our 1 year old cocker spaniel. Room and bed very comfortable and cosy. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and even Blaze (pet) enjoyed her sausage (once another dog was offered it!) Nothing was too much bother for Neil and Rosemarie, really looked after us so well, the grounds are lovely as well, room to give Blaze her a run in the morning and evening.

Lovely Night For My Wife\'s Birthday
I booked direct to get the \'right room\' for our Special one night stay. Rosemarie was very helpful when booking, she informed me that she was going away for a couple of days but her husband Neil would look after us. Well he certainly did that we had the Austen Suite with lovely views. We ate in the Hotel for our evening meal cooked by Neil and their lovely daughter Emily. We had a very special 3 course meal, the main course being Fillet Steak which was cooked to perfection and was delicious! A lovely touch with the sweet of profiteroles was \'Happy Birthday\' piped on the plate!! Because I like doing surprises, my wife did not know where we were staying, she loved it!!

Beautiful, well - appointed room, super-comfy bed, Nespresso machine, excellent bathroom and toiletries. We weren\'t there long enough to avail ourselves of the welcoming guest bar, and the outdoor heated pool was closed for the winter, but this just means that we\'ll have to go back next year.

Four of us were given a very warm welcome by Rosemarie and Neil. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable with lovely modern en suite facilities. Breakfasts were superb with a wide choice of continental and English menus. We were grateful for two evening meals being provided plus a lovely surprise birthday cake for one of us one evening. Rosemarie and Neil were excellent hosts and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Dower House to other friends.

Good But Small Point
Lovely hotel and friendly staff and owners. Only small point that would have given five stars is that after 3 hours drive and a bad back (they didn\'t know that) I would have automatically hoped someone would carry my case rather that let me carry it and heavy hand luggage whist they took nothing. Small point but it is what make 5*

Great Location At A Competitive Price
Dower House ticked all the boxes for us. It is very well located for Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Beer. Our room was very spacious and well appointed. Lots of free parking making life easy!
They have a wonderful little bar too, very nice for a pre dinner drink. The pricing of rooms is very competive compared to Lyme. We will definitely be back.

Home From(sweet)home.
We have recently left the Dower House after 6 excellent nights in the Coade room, Rosemarie and Neil were fantastic mine hosts, and made us all so welcome. It\'s was literally like home from home, comfortable bar and seating area. Dinners are ordered 24 hours in advance, we didn\'t take up the offer as we like to try local cuisine too. Breakfast was taken in the bar as we were accompanied by our dog, but for the dogless there was the main dining room. Each doggie is given a sausage for breakfast, nice touch. The DH is very canine friendly as they are owners too and the resident dogs are most welcoming. You feel almost as if part of the family and long lost friends, we\'ll be back sometime, perhaps when house hunting! (tongue in cheek). Best described as we arrived screwed up and left chilled and relaxed to take on the next challenge. Thanks to all for allowing us to use your home as our own for a short time.

Calma E Relax Nel Verde
Mia moglie ed io siamo appena tornati da un soggiorno di tre giorni presso Dower House Hotel. Immersa nelle colline del Dorset e Devon, questa bellissima struttura è ben tenuta e pulita. La nostra stanza era ampia ed accogliente, con una vista stupenda su colline verdeggianti corredate da pecore!

L’ospitalità gentile e attenta del personale concorre a creare la sensazione di relax. I proprietari, Neil and Rosemary, sono stati gentilissimi, aiutandoci con la prenotazione e offrendoci informazioni dettagliate sulle attrazioni locali. La colazione, che include un buffet e il tipico ‘full english’ breakfast, è ricca e deliziosa.

Dower House è situato nei pressi di Lyme Regis e permette una vacanza variata. Noi abbiamo alternato escursioni a piedi sui numerosi sentieri costieri, con visite nei paesini circostanti. Splendida location per passare un week-end di relax e scoprire la Jurassic Coast.

Lovely, Family Run, Very Dog Friendly, Quality Hotel.
We stayed at Dower House for two nights and lived it from start to finish. From the quality of the welcome on arrival to the comfort of the rooms, cleanliness and \'can do\' attitude, we have nothing but praise for our hosts, Rosemary and Neil.
Being a small family run business, they quite rightly don\'t feel the need to provide a dinner service all of the time. They were however more than happy to have us order a takeaway and provided us with cutlery etc to eat in the bar. This together with a very good wine list went down a treat!
Travelling with my dog can sometimes have its frustrating times with \'so called\' dog friendly hotels but rest assured that this is truly dog friendly.
Top notch all round. Many thanks.

The owners Rosemary and Neil are tremendous hosts and go out of their way to a accommodate your requests - we were allowed in early which was nice and allowed us to enjoy a full day locally. The suite is expertly decorated with good facilities including shower and bath and has outside access via french windows into the gardens. Breakfast was excellent and used local produce and we also had dinner on both nights which were very good. They also have a well stocked bar to idle and relax away the evenings. Enjoyed a cream tea while we were there which was good. May well return for a further break next year!

We loved the gardens and the cosy lounge/ bar area with real fire and candles dotted around. The hotel has a warm feeling to it and you can tell the owners put their heart and soul into running it.

The breakfast is fairly simple but is fresh and the cooked options were delicious. The staff are extremely welcoming and do everything possible to ensure that your needs are accommodated.

Absolutely Stunning!
We cannot recommend this hotel enough. From the warmest of welcome when we arrived to being made to feel part of a family. The breakfast was freshly cooked and probably the best breakfast we have had in any hotel. The hotel is furnished to the highest of standards, we stayed in the Austin Room and it was beautiful. We will definitely be booking again.

Another Great Stay
My wife and I stayed a few days at The Dower House for our son\'s wedding being held at River Cottage HQ nearby. We\'d already stayed a few weeks previously and loved the comfort and style of the hotel and of course the warm welcome of hosts Rosemarie and Neil. They made us feel really welcome and always had time for a chat (and introduce us to their beautiful Great Dane).
A beautiful location and a well appointed room with panoramic views of the countryside, and the best breakfast for miles around.
If you\'re looking for a break at a friendly, comfortable, family-run hotel with a touch of individualism then this comes with the highest recommendation.

Simply Luxury
Took my partner away fro a special Birthday treat.
We chose the French Lieutenant\'s Suite.
Last word in luxury, from the huge (and high!) bed, to the large bath (fits 2) sofa and chaise, big TV. A room you could stay in, not just sleep in.
Breakfast is bespoke to each guest and very good!

Neil and Rosemary are lovely and attentive hosts, who really care about their guests!

This is a dog friendly Hotel.

In short, a little bit of luxury, you get what you pay for!

Our Stay At Dower House

The Dower house hotel is a very clean comfortable place to stay. The hosts were always available when needed, pleasant but not over bearing. The accommodation is certainly 4 or maybe 5 star (we had a 4 poster room with a wet room attached). It is easy to park and you can come and go as you like. The breakfast is excellent and there is a pleasant patio area at the rear of the property. The pool was not open in March but it looks an inviting extra for those warm sunny days to come. We will return and recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to visit the area.

Wonderful Hotel And Hosts
I found the Dower House via a Google search while looking for likely places for a short stay to mark our birthdays, and I am so glad we chose it. From the beautiful surroundings to the historic building and the warmth of the welcome from Neal and Rosemarie, we enjoyed every moment of our 4-night stay. We had the Austen Suite, a very comfortable room with a luxurious bed and a great garden view. We knew when we booked that we would not get dinner, but actually we did on one night - good starter, very nicely cooked steak and a choice of two puddings and a good wine list. The other evenings we ate in Axmouth and Lyme Regis in various pubs, all recommended by Neal, and all very good. The breakfast was delicious too, freshly cooked to order and with a good choice, and served by happy friendly staff. We \'enjoyed\' terrible weather during our stay but it didn\'t matter as there is plenty to do in the area - we particularly liked Dinosaurland (a museum) and the Town Mill in Lyme, Athelhampton House, the county museum in Dorchester and the local Thomas Hardy connections. We also managed to fit in some fossil hunting between the downpours and found everyone very friendly when asking for advice on where best to look. Neal and Rosemarie have lots of local information and we very much appreciated the free wifi. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We would like to return in better weather when we could enjoy the lovely gardens properly and even go for a dip in the large pool.

A wonderfully managed hotel in a beautiful setting, ample parking and, on more suitable days, lovely grounds in which to just enjoy the Dorset sunshine. The rooms have been beautifully refurbished, we stayed in The Monmouth which has wonderful country views to the rear of the Hotel, the breakfast/dining room which is at the front has stunning views towards the coast, thus we can only assume that the bedrooms at the front also have wonderful views. We were made most welcome upon arrival, throughout our short break, in the excellent cocktail bar and whilst enjoying their very good breakfast. We would highly recommend this Hotel.

Dennis Dog Does Dower House Digs !!
Lovely couple of days at the Dower House. Friendly, helpful hosts and staff, rightfully very proud of the range of rooms and suites offered. We had our dog in a double room, but were interested to see family accommodation and dog free rooms on change over day. Luxurious décor throughout. Placed well for beaches, walking or cycling nearby. No hesitation in recommending and giving 5 star rating. Thanks all.

If you are looking for a holiday inn/premier inn hotel stay with air conditioning and 100 varieties of breakfast, this isn\'t for you...but it should be. Suspend your view that a hotel should have grey walls and a pre-moulded bathroom and just totally indulge yourself with a stay here. It is just glorious.
The welcome is wholehearted and personal; the room is pure luxury with the best bed that I have ever slept on and a breakfast made just for you with the very best local ingredients. Honestly, a real cut above your normal boutique hotel. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Possibly The Best Country House Hotel In The West?
After two days with friends in a terrific converted Barn overlooking The Chesil Bank, we were looking for a \'nice\' overnight stop, in the Lyme area, before returning to Wiltshire.
We were a party of six ( in three rooms) and our stay was....outstanding!!
Our hosts Neil & Rosemary, treated us like long lost friends from the moment we arrived, and as we were not looking for \'journey out \' to find somewhere for dinner, Caroline came up with a great meal for us all, having given her the requested \'steer\'
After much chatter and laughter in Dining Room and Bar, we all retired and enjoyed are sumptuous rooms.
If you are looking to combine with a visit to River Cottage, I do not believe you will find better!
Fabulous!! Thank you both

A very warm welcome from our hosts set the pattern for a most enjoyable time. Excellent breakfasts and a beautifully cooked evening meal on the single occasion we ate in the evening.

Autumn Break
The Dower House is lovely. I would love to have been the dowager concerned, except that I wouldn\'t be around to appreciate it now of course. The suite we had, Anning, was just what was described, and most suitable for my husband who is 85 and not very agile, and it was great to be able to sit out on the little terrace, once the wind dropped. Neil and Rosemarie are most welcoming, supportive and friendly. We were most lucky with the weather too, and could see all the trees and plants slowly returning to rest. Most peaceful. And I definitely covet at least three armchairs and one sofa! Beautiful furnishings and lovely food. Great Talisker.At one point inthe middle of one night I thought my husband had disappeared as I couldn\'t see him in the i..m..m..e.n..s..e..l.. wide bed. Would love to come again.

Lovely But...
A beautiful hotel in a beautiful setting, and fairly good value. But for an establishment that advertises itself as a hotel/restaurant, it was a bit of a pain that the restaurant was shut for the two nights we were there, especially as it was necessary to drive some way to the next decent eating place. Advance notice of when the restaurant would be available, perhaps on the website, would be very useful.

Further, although the ultra king sized bed was welcome, it was not so much so at the expense of enough space to get around the room or even to have a chair in it.

Apart from those two points, however, we had a great stay, as did our dog, who was made even more welcome than we were. Certainly a possibility for another stay should we return to the Jurassic Coast.

Super Stay
We stayed 2 nights in The French Lieutenants room. The room was huge and very well appointed and in fantastic condition. The hotel is small but has all the amenities you need. The bar is very well stocked and breakfast was cooked freshly to order - great! The service at the hotel is second to none and I would recommend staying here to anyone.

We recently stayed at Dower House as we were attending a nearby wedding at River Cottage.
As 3 couples, 2 with young children we were looking for a quiet hotel with plenty of space for the kids and a relaxing setting for the adults ! Dower House offered everything we wanted and more. The warm welcome that we received was a sign of things to come, a beautiful hotel, immaculately kept with the most wonderful hosts you could ask for.

Good Choice!
We stayed for 2 nights mid- week in the four-poster bedroom. Very impressed with the room ; no expense spared with the decor and fittings - fantastic shower room mixing traditional fittings and and ultra modern wet-room style shower. The bed was heavenly and views lovely .
Neil and Rosemarie were the perfect hosts, and we soon felt like we were staying at a friend\'s house! The whole family were involved , and the addition of Luna the Great Dane puppy was a bonus.
Breakfast was very good and we liked the location of the hotel - a short drive out of Lyme Regis, but convenient for the surrounding areas.
Difficult to fault , though we were unable to dine in the evening or use the pool on this trip, so we need to return to remedy this!

Lovely Hotel
Thank you for a lovely stay this weekend! The Pool and Customer Service was amazing. Lovely clean bedroom with a huge bathroom. Our only little bit of negative feedback is that I asked for Eggs Benedict for Breakfast and ended up with ham and an egg on toast, although it was lovely to eat it wasn\'t exactly what I asked for. The Lady Chef simply said she \'didn\'t have time to make hollandaise sauce\'- which was a shame and a tiny bit rude considering we were paying customers.
Also (through no fault of your own) - the lady in the room next to us had 3 children, so a screaming toddler was the last thing we heard at night and the first thing we heard at 6am. But it cant be helped :)
Thank you for a lovely stay and swim.

Sehr Schöner Aufenthalt Im Persönlich Geführten Hotel
Wir sind eine Familie mit 2 (nicht so kleinen) Töchtern (10 und 17Jahre).

Unsere Suite sowie das gesamte Hotel sind sehr elegant und mit Liebe ausgestattet.

Although we have visited Lyme Regis many times we have never stayed at the Dower house Hotel before. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds in a lovely old building. The owners are warm and friendly but not intrusive which I think is a hard balance to achieve. We stayed in the family suite by the heated outdoor pool. It was really enjoyable and there was flexibility about the times we were able to use the pool. My 12 year old daughter loved it! We will definitely be staying again soon as it is close enough to Lyme but it is also a haven of relaxation. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Stayed at Dower House for the first time 5-12 June 2016, in the Austin Suite. Delightful Hotel and room overlooking countryside and swimming pool. Breakfasts excellent.

We wanted to visit Lyme Regis but were deterred from staying in the town centre by the parking problems. The Dower House proved perfect for our stay.

George And Chris
We had a lovely stay at the Dower HouseHotel last week for May half term. The room (Anning Suite) was comfortable, clean, well-equipped and plenty big enough for our family of 5.
If I was nit-picking, we could have done with a toothbrush pot in the bathroom but I\'m sure that would have been easily rectified had I got around to asking. I would also have preferred more choice of continental style breakfast but the rest of my family were more than happy with the cooked options so that\'s personal preference.
Our hosts were friendly and accommodating and made the children feel very welcome, which is not always the case even with well behaved children! We will definitely recommend the hotel to our friends 😀

A Dorset Gem
The description \'Mature couple\' predicates a certain response - for this mature couple orderly comfort and lack of embarrassment is a preferred option, which is why we normally chose a formula hotel.

Dower house is certainly not that, and it is one of the best experiences we have had in the choice of a small and quite intimate hotel. We found our night\'s stay exceptional in comfort and welcome. One only has to meet Neil and Rosemarie to feel their passion for their creation at Dower house and this is reflected in the high quality if the accommodation and the food, and the over all ambience of the building and the stay.

We would go out of our way to stay again at Dower House.

Visit Of Georgie The Irish Setter With Her Owners.
Well, where to begin! The Cobb Suite was perfect for this first hotel outing for our hound, beautifully restored and appointed, as was the whole Dower House. The truly home-cooked evening meals in the comfortable, informal bar area were lovely: Cornish hake, locally raised fillet steak and the rest, and the breakfasts equally delicious in the tranquil surroundings of the dining room. The large lawned gardens and nearby Rousdon village were fine for an evening walk with the dog. So many superlatives - we were looked after in such a seemingly effortless and friendly way we have no hesitation in recommending the Dower House and look forward to our next visit to this delightful hotel. And Georgie thought a sausage for breakfast on her own, named, plate was a great idea!

Beautiful Hotel And Grounds With A Warm Welcome For Human And Doggy Guests.
Our room was obviously recently decorated with new carpets, as was what we saw in the rest of the hotel. Our two dogs were warmly welcomed on our arrival and were given a daily breakfast of some sausage each- a lovely touch. The gardens (beautiful) were not secured all around (neighboring property and main road within easy reach) and so we felt unable to let our dogs off the lead for a run. Other dog owners did however let their dogs run free-ours are too adventurous agility-trained dogs! Breakfast was nice, my only criticism as a tea lover is the lack of a pot of hot water for my tea pot at breakfast and the lack of fresh milk in the bedroom (UHT in the room). We were 2 adults and a teenager with 2 dogs. The dogs were requested to be crated when we left them at the hotel for the evening, and for when downstairs having breakfast-which is fine as some places insist on dogs in the car at those times. We would definitely return. Neil and Rosemarie were very helpful, warm and accomodating, and of course the hotel is ideally situated.

A full selection! Thank you Neil Rosemary and family! A very pleasant stay and great value for money!

Just Perfect
my wife and I had never visited the Jurassic coastal area and I chose The Dower House as our base. As it transpires an inspirational choice as the hotel was perfect. Great location, fine facilities and a wonderful couple who own it. They made us feel so welcome so everything just flowed. We\'ll definitely return.

Very Pleasant But Hidden Costs
Very luxurious and run by a lovely couple. Take care when booking through booker.com as we booked a room for 2 adults and 1 child we had to pay an additional charge for our child when we left as the booker.com prizes were for the room only. Also, there was no room for us fir dinner and has to drive to a pub 3 miles away. Not ideal.

Dear Christian - thank you for your feedback we really did enjoy chatting to you both! Yes there was a problem with your booking.com booking - part of their system hadn\'t updated properly and had missed off your son. Their system is now all present and correct! I must apologise regarding supper - we were fully booked I\'m afraid and that is another reason we like to have 24 hr notice for dinner to make sure no one is disappointed. We do hope you choose to visit us again - Kind regards Neil and Rosemarie

Stunning Hotel,stunning Area,lots To Do
Dower House is a little hidden secret.A stunning ,& friendly hotel.Stylishly decorated,very calming,relaxed.
My husband & our 5 year old & I, had a wonderful stay. The hotel is set in a quiet,tranquil place.however there is so much to do in The heart of Lyme Regis .Apart from the fantastic beaches & lots of activity there for children to join in,there are also other neighbouring towns,all offering a multitude of things to do,aswell as their own smaller beaches.
We had such a lovely time enjoying the lovely hotel,& also the surrounding panoramic views & walks.We will definetly return,but without our child next time,as we had the chance to see one of the most stunning rooms in the hotel ( but not for children ) called The French Lieutenant....oh yes I nearly forgot,breakfast was incredible.So much on offer,it was food heaven...So yes,I would definetly recommend this Hotel & area to stay..Just lovely ****

Two Great Nights At A Real Find!
We were looking for a nice hotel which wasn\'t overly priced and we certainly found it at the Dower House Hotel! Right from the first phone call to the morning we left Neil & Rosemarie were amazing hosts, very friendly and made us feel very welcome. From the lovely, comfortable bedroom to the great breakfasts and everything in between, we had a thoroughly enjoyable two days. A beautiful hotel in equally beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside. Would certainly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Another Lovely Weekend Away
This was another lovely weekend away for us at this beautiful, welcoming hotel. Neil & Rosemarie are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet and so, so helpful. They greeted us as friends and were most helpful when I had a medical problem - giving contact numbers to help me out. The room was, again, perfect and Rosemarie did her duck confit for us ( we had e mailed and asked for it especially!) which was as lovely as we have come to expect. It was a lovely, restful weekend away which is what we needed as we are in the middle of moving and needed a break form the stress. I would recommend Dower House as one of the ultimate stress reducing experiences!!

Short But Sweet
We only stayed for one night at Dower house and found it a wonderful experience. Our hosts could not have been more friendly or accommadating. We arrive very early and they were happy to look after our bags whilst we went out for a day long walk. We were told that our room was the only one that had not been recently refurbished. That was a big surprise because we thought it was delightful, comfortable and of the highest standard. The breakfast menu was very good and the service efficient and friendly. I can recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg. The grounds are extensive and there is a pool, which we unfortunately could not take advantage of in early March. All in all, we had a lovely stay and would certainly return.

A Homely Night Away
We wanted a night near Lyme Regis with our son and my mum , Dower House hotel looked ideal. From the last minute adjustment to our booking to accomodate my sister, and the friendly welcome we felt we were made to feel at home. The rooms were beautifully decorated with some lovely little touches. The bar was very cozy and warm with Neil as our barman with some very friendly and helpful hints on the area including restaurants to visit. In the summer the bar and seating area would be a great place to relax with friends in the evening.
The beds were very comfortable with none of us wanting to get up. Breakfast was lovely and ideal for us.
Our stay overall was perfect. We shall definitely be returning and recommending Dower House Hotel to our friends.
Thank you Neil and Rosemarie for a lovely break.

Stayed in the French Lieutenants room - which was utter luxury - nicest room we have ever stayed in - EVER!!! Well worth splashing out on it as a treat.
LOVED the fact that there was a Nespresso machine and the bed was HUGE! But the best feature (obvs!) is the copper bath where you can bask (in the sun if its shining!) and watch TV. Wonderful idea!!!

The room on the ground floor was great, with access to the enclosed patio garden which was perfect for the dog. Unfortunately the weather was dreadful - high winds, rain and cloudy, so couldn\'t fully appreciate the hotel. This hotel has great potential as it is being refurbished by current owners.

The room, Peek, was lovely and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is extremely well presented but there is no need to feel intimidated by the surroundings as Neil and Rosemarie are welcoming, friendly, down-to-earth and make you feel comfortable. The staff member at breakfast was lovely and she also remembered us from our previous visit, which was nice. We have already booked for an Easter stay - I can\'t recommend Dower House more highly.

Great Family And Pet Friendly Hotel
Loved staying here. It\'s the first time we have been away with our dog as a family. We stayed in the Anning Suite which was roomy, on the ground floor so we could let the dog in and out and had a fabulous big bed. There was a smaller room which our son slept in - he was so comfortable it was hard to get him up! Lovely touches - coffee machine, sausage for doggy at breakfast and an amazing full English every day. Rosemary and Neil were very attentive, chatting and making everyone feel like house guests rather than hotel ones. Hotel is in beautiful grounds and only a few short miles to Lyme, Sidmouth, Beer and Seaton. Thank you! We are suitably refreshed and relaxed after a lovely break. Happy New Year.

My wife and I stayed for one night for a birthday treat, which coincided nicely with a charity black tie James Bond night in nearby Lyme Regis. The hosts couldn\'t be more accommodating who prepared a lovely evening meal (and breakfast the following morning) and also managed to dig out an old James Bond soundtrack to play in the bar before we left - a nice touch!

A Pleasure To Find Such Hospitality And High Quality Accommodation
We found the Dower House Hotel when looking for somewhere to stay, to get an early start fossil hunting - I am so pleased that we did.

The hospitality and attention to detail which Neil and Rosemarie offer is second to none. They were both so friendly and accommodating of us and our children, nothing was too much trouble. Neil opened the outdoor pool early (at exactly the time he said he would), so we could go for a swim before we left. They also served breakfast early, so we could make an early start fossil hunting.

Despite being an old property, the hotel is really warm and cosy - I understand as a result of new heating, windows and a biomass boiler!

The setting is beautiful, it\'s only a shame that we were only there for one night in late October!

Neil and Rosemarie are rightly proud of their hotel and have achieved the rare balance of hospitality, welcoming us in to their home, as well as the professionalism and space you want from a hotel.

I would highly recommend the Dower House Hotel to anyone and would go as far as to say we are already looking for another excuse to go back again - all from looking for somewhere to stay to go fossil hunting!

Lovely Personal Hotel
We had a warm welcome from Neil and Rosemary who both came out to meet us and ask for our children\'s names. We had a nicely decorated large room with lovely views. We loved the bathroom which was large and modern.
Neil and Rosemary were very accommodating to start breakfast earlier as we had to set out just after 8.30.
Breakfast was really good.

The accomodation was lovely (it really was superb comfort), the location excellent and the whole break just what we wanted, even the weather did not stop the children taking advantage of the heated pool.

Quiet, Relaxing And Welcoming
We\'d managed to get away without the children, so booked a night at the Dower House. It\'s in a quiet rural location, with nice grounds. Our room was a bit smaller than we\'d expected (the photos are flattering!) but nevertheless was very comfortable and all we needed. The breakfast was excellent! It\'s not the cheapest around, but is worth it if you want somewhere quiet to unwind.

A Week At River Cottage
We booked two rooms at Dower House, Rosemary and Neil could not have been more helpful from the very first phone call to the hug goodbye. Chosen because it was close to River Cottage, the stay allowed us a restful evening in the bar or the terrace each night. Rosemary even helped us cook up some of our much valued food prepared during the day. The rooms were generous and well appointed, I loved climbing into my outrageously high and large bed each night.

Great Short Break
Recently spent a short break at Dower House as part of a short break in the area.

Lovely warm welcome and comfortable clean and cosy room. Breakfast offered a good choice and was quick in arriving and very tasty indeed. It was disappointing not to be able to eat at the Hotel in the evening as we hadn\'t given prior notice however Neil did suggest a local pub which was really nice with excellent food. It was nice to be able to sit in the garden with other guests in early evening for drinks. The grounds did look nice and well kept but as it was just a 2 night break we didn\'t have chance to explore them more. All in all a lovely place to stay and the staff and owners were very friendly and helpfull

Delightful Dower House Hotel
We absolutely loved our stay at this gorgeous country house hotel. Owners, Rosie and Neil together with their son, George, could not have made us feel more welcome or comfortable. Fabulously designed and well appointed rooms, all with a different USP - e.g.four poster bed or stunning copper roll top bath in our French Lieutenant\'s Woman room. Delicious breakfasts sent us merrily on our way each day. Only regret was that we didn\'t get round to booking dinner inhouse but George swiftly organised a friendly local taxi driver, Robin, who transferred us to lovely Lyme Regis and even pointed us to an excellent harbourside inn. We definitely hope to return!

Pitch Perfect
Our group of 4 fifty somethings visited the Dower House for a weekend break July 2015. After a 7 hour drive from Kent it was a treat to arrive to cool rooms with beautiful views and an open bar.
It was a lovely stay with all the trimmings and creature comforts we wanted. There were some nice touches such as the Thomas Crapper porcelain in the bathroom and the locally sourced bacon and sausages we enjoyed for breakfast.

And Tommy Came Too
My husband, Tommy the dog and I stayed at The Dower house last week for 3 nights. We all 3 slept in the Monmouth room which was everything you could hope for in a room- large, comfortable bed with good quality linen, beautiful view from the window and a large bathroom with a good sized bath. There was plenty of room for Tommy\'s bed in front of the window. Breakfast was delicious with an excellent selection of freshly cooked food and Tommy particularly enjoyed his freshly cooked sausage. We ate in a private dining room ( aka The Bar) so that Tommy could be with us as dogs, understandably, are not allowed to be left in the bedrooms unattended. We will definitely be back and thank you to Neal and Rosemarie for a wonderful stay.

Room With The Wow Factor!
After a very warm welcome, walking into The French Lieutenants suite was like entering a film set. The room feels almost decadent with an enormous bed and the most amazing bath which was surprisingly comfortable, There is every comfort one could wish for including a proper coffee machine. Top this off with an excellent breakfast and beautiful surrounding countryside we would happily return.

A Touch Of Bling
Wow! The only possible reaction to walking into the spacious French Lieutenant\'s room - a riot of silver and purple with an antique-style copper bath on a raised platform in front of the window looking over the garden and countryside. My wife could scarcely wait to try it! The en suite bathroom has a matching washbasin (as well as a more conventional shower) not to mention an antique toilet and cistern designed by one Thomas Crapper. Great fun and with a huge comfortable bed.
Our stay was just one night, but we thoroughly recommend the Dower House, from its warm welcome to its great breakfast and its imaginative decor.

\"very Enjoyable Stay\"
We have just returned from a lovely weekend break at the Dower House Hotel.I must say it has greatly improved, since our last stay a couple of years ago.There was nothing wrong with how it used to be,other than the dated décor in the bedrooms.It has had an excellent makeover, using high quality fittings. Rosemarie and Neil were very friendly and welcoming.The whole house and bedrooms were lovely and clean(immaculate),bearing in mind they are pet friendly.It is fairly close to the road,however you would not know it.It is very quiet and the views are lovely, along with the well kept lawns.We found our bed extremely comfortable.For breakfast we had fresh fruit, followed by a full English,it was great.Nothing was too much trouble.We had a couple of friends with us and they were equally impressed. Needless to say I\'m sure we will be visiting again. Many thanks for a great stay!!

We had an extremely pleasant stay at the Dower House last week. Neil and Rosemary were thoughtful, charming and helpful hosts - much appreciated as we had complicated needs due to one of the party being disabled and wheelchair bound. The accommodation was very comfortable - luxurious even - with comfortable beds and modern, well-equipped bathrooms. I understand dinner is available if required, though we had already made alternative arrangements, but did partake of Neil\'s well-stocked bar beforehand and am still dreaming of his delicious Hendricks gin with Fever Tree tonic and cucumber! Not to be missed......

Peace & Quiet
After an enjoyable slow drive from Leicestershire through the Cotswolds what a wonderful surprise to reach a very impressive Victorian house overlooking the Deavonshire countryside. It felt very warm from the outside and even more like a home from home inside. Rosemarie & Neil run it in a very homely atmosphere. We had a very delightful 5 nights and days exploring areas close to the hotel. Weather was perfect every day.

Wonderful Stay At Dower House
We spent one night at Dower House but wished we had stayed longer. Dower House is such a beautiful building and the grounds are very pretty, so first impressions were very good. We had a very friendly welcome from Neil and Rosemary and were shown to our rooms which were just fabulous. Although we were staying in one of their \"small\" rooms (our choice) the room was perfect. It was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The en-suite was the same - and the shower was huge! We had an enjoyable few hours in the bar which had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It would be nice to stay here in the summer as there was outside seating and it would have been lovely to sit outside on a balmy evening and take in the stunning surroundings. Breakfast was delicious and service friendly and smiley!

We were lucky enough to be given a conducted tour of all the rooms and they are stunning. The decorations, colour and style have been carried out to such a high standard - I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed in their stay here.

We will definitely be returning

Had a wonderful stay at Dower House. My full compliments go to Rosemary and Neil who were incredibly hospitable and welcoming!! Each room is individually furnished with very high quality fixtures and fittings...loved the Thomas Crapper bathroom fittings and must make special mention of the bed...I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud with the hugely comfortable goose down topper and quilt. My husband was also in his element being allowed to peruse and play from Neil\'s extensive vinyl record collection. The bar was well stocked and comfortable and nothing was too much trouble even at 1.30am!! Breakfast was great and the stay was only spoilt by being far to short!! Highly recommend!!

We stayed only one night at the Dower House. We were made to feel very welcome. The room was comfortable and unfussingly equipped. The hotel had recently had a major refit and we reported several hiccups which Neil and Rosemary received very positively and set about addressing the problems immediately. This is refreshing!

Excellent Stay With Our Dog At Dower House
Thoroughly recommend a stay at Dower House! Despite being dog friendly, there are no signs (or smells!) of any other dogs having been in the room. The suite that we stayed in was beautifully decorated and very clean with plenty of attention to the little touches- toiletries, dressing gowns and refreshments. The suite was ideal for dog owners as was located on the ground floor and had its own access into the garden. Neil and Rosemary were incredibly welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and our golden retriever was even given a little treat - a freshly cooked sausage presented in a little dish with his name on! It is so lovely to find accommodation that enables us to holiday with our dog and especially lovely to find this accommodation to be of such a high quality. Just one teeny tiny suggestion - a menu for the breakfast! Otherwise, superb! Will look forward to staying again.
