My husband and I and our dog Molly stayed here for a long weekend break. We had a fabulous time, the hotel is an easy walk to beautiful Lulworth Cove. We stayed in room 11 which was comfortable and had an en-suite shower, however I would think this room could be very hot in the

Response from David P, General Manager at The Castle Inn

Rob, It was indeed an unfortunate set of events due to you not following the terms of conditions of a 3rd party site, booking.com. Had this reservation been made directly this situation would never have happened or indeed had you seen the terms and condition of your booking when clicking on booking.com we would not have been in this situation. As It was we did not have a room available so I made calls to local hotels and managed to find for you which given the festive time of year was lucky to find a property in such close proximity of where you wanted to be. I also spoke to the fore mentioned property and arranged one of their newly refurbished rooms and asked them to take special care as you had an ordeal due to not seeing Booking.com terms. I also continued calling hotels to find accommodation for your 2nd night which in the end you decided not to take. I had hoped to be able to re sell the 2 nights and be able to credit you with the stay but as it was on the day this short notice at New Year this did not happen. A sad situation and glad it is up here as a caution to all who use 3rd party booking sites, I believe I went over and above trying to help sort the situation and deal with the 3rd party site on your behalf. I am sorry that you feel that this was not far enough. Best regards David

We had a great two night stay at The Castle Inn. Just outside the village, but within easy walking distance of Lulworth Cove, the location was perfect and there was a safe car park opposite. Staff were professional and friendly and were keen to make sure we had everything we

We ate lunch here after our visit to Durdle Door & really enjoyed it. Cozy low-ceiling pub with wood beams. Seems like a place locals go. Friendly staff & prompt service. Seems like a nice authentic place to stay in the area, although we only ate here.

"We were happy with our room although it was quite small and only had a shower. A bath would have been nice after a long walk."
"A small hotel and all room were well located."
"We stayed in the Bats Head room which was very comfortable"
