What people are saying about The Dorset Hotel


2024 Visit - Rating 4/5

Great little B&B, we have been visiting for several years. offers a lovely breakfast to set you up for the day rooms are comfortable but latest one given could do with a bit of an update, as dresser was a bit wobbly and therefore did not use.They also offer a ferry booking service for if required.Overall Costs for stay and ferry are usually quite fairWould recommend

Homely- Rating 5/5

Been staying at the Dorset hotel for a few years. Always made welcome, it really is like coming home. Michael and Dave have treated me kindly and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms clean and tidy and some have great views (21 is great). Breakfast is fresh and plentiful. Always leave a happy customer😊

Fantastic weekend - Rating 5/5

I have holidayed on the IOW for many years, and the Dorset is my go to place, some years visiting twice in the same year. The Staff are always very friendly and helpful, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast superb. I have booked up again for next year, and will do for many years to come :)

A frienďly and welcoming place to stay.- Rating 5/5

Well given that this was my second visit and a third is planned... I like the people,and love Flossie the cat, my room (19) was lovely (may I have it again?) breakfast is very good (I brought some of David's marmalade home) and the location is handy for both the town and buses to other places. My only 'down ' would be the steps up to the entrances (problem for folk with mobility issues) but then you do get this - and lack of a lift - with old buildings and need to be aware of this. Ask about access when booking, don't moan later.
