This was an excellent central location but away from the hustle and bustle of busier locations on the Jurassic Coast. The cleanliness and attention to detail in the rooms was second to none that I have experienced. I would love to go back again. The breakfast was fresh and cooked to order. All the staff we came into contact with... More

My wife and I stayed at the Kerrington House Hotel and were immediately impressed with the welcome we received and the wonderful building we had arrived at. Fiona was a delight to meet and I couldn't believe that she took our suitcases up to the top room on the third floor. The room was large with a lovely bathroom en... More

This is a nice period property with a lovely garden and a good place to stay in Axminster. Positive points... The owner is very nice and accomodating. Our room was spacious and our bed was comfortable. The bathroom was quite large. The breakfast is potentially very good. Negative points... The toilet seat in our bathroom was a bit worse for...

fairly expansive twin bedded room with additional seating. Cupboard for clothes hanging was quite tight, to open. very quiet location even though next to a main road. Host, Fiona was charming and obviously wanted to please. Breakfast was plentiful, although would of liked eggs, fried and scrambled to have been cooked for longer.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in September and really enjoyed our short stay. I loved the room decoration and it had everything we needed, the breakfast was great with a nice selection of cereals or hot food. We have also never stayed in a place where the owner has been so welcoming and friendly! Would definitely recommend.

My friend from London had suggested staying at Kerrington House while traveling to Lyme Regis recently and it did not disappoint. This is a lovely bed and breakfast with impeccable service. We chose a larger ground floor suite which has anything and everything you'd need to feel comfortable and relaxed. The breakfast service was excellent and delicious, and the proprietor... More

We stayed three nights at Kerrington House and really enjoyed our stay. The house and garden are beautiful, and the bedroom and bathroom - and the linen - were clean and well-appointed.

Booked two double rooms at very short notice, for one night stay. Fiona was very welcoming and extremely helpful to my elderly parents. A beautiful house, with a delightful garden. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, with those extra little touches to enhance your stay; e.g sherry provided! A great choice at breakfast, freshly cooked to order. All in all,... More

We had a quite cold and distracted reception as the owner was watching some sport event on tv. I really liked the building but I was bitterly disappointed when I found that the linen on the bed was dirty and did not smell fresh at all. The breakfast was very nice but hygiene is a must for me.
