Just got back from a lovely stay at the Dower House Hotel. We stayed in the Cobb suite - a charming annex that was great for us as we had a little 17 month old with us. Oh... and it had three greatest radiators I've ever seen! Overall a great hotel, really well looked after by the very helpful team,...

This was a revisit for my husband as he stayed here as a schoolboy when it was the headmaster's house for All Hallows' School. Naturally a huge change! Neil and Rosemarie were superb hosts firstly and brought an air of comfort and relaxation. Breakfasts were lovely. We had an excellent dinner the second evening. We stayed in the Cobb Suite,...

We wish we could have stayed longer! From the very warm welcome, a fantastic room (with 4 poster bed) through to the delicious breakfast everything was perfect. The location between Lyme Regis and Sidmouth is good too.

My husband booked the most beautiful room for a surprise stay at the Dower House. It was really all you could possibly ask. An ENORMOUS and extremely comfy bed with fabulous sheets. My idea of heaven! I have never had a bath in the bedroom and thought, though it looked lovely, it would be uncomfortable. In fact it was the...

We only stayed for one night and had one of the cheaper rooms. The room was very comfortable, large bed, fantastic shower, clean, quiet and no problems. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection available. We would certainly stop here again if we were in the area.
