    A good one night stay”

    We only spent one night at the Black Dog with our grandson before visiting the tank museum, which is less that 10 miles away. We were close enough to the coast to pop down after dinner and spend an hour watching the sunset. It is family friendly with a big play area in the garden, maybe not so great if you don't like kids. We had an evening meal, which was really good and breakfast was also fine. The staff were excellent and very helpful, especially as the grandson had been sick in the car just before we got there and provided cleaning stuff for me to sort it out. The family room was OK, seemed clean and the shower was good. It was a bit stuffy but that was due to it being one of the hottest days of the year!

    A little gem!”

    I travel a fair bit due to business and looked on the key hotel sites but struggled to find something good value and in a nice location. Greeted at checking by a very charming and chatty girl, she explained everything about the stay and showed us to our room. The evening meal was very very nice as was the breakfast, all fresh local produce. I will certainly be returning here, the staff and place are excellent! Keep up the great work :) David

    Lovely, comfortable stay in Dorset”

    We really enjoyed our short stay. the location is excellent for the coast and walks etc. The room - lovely comfy bed, large shower room and tea making facilities. It's on a well used road, so a little noisy - but nothing like where i live in the city. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the dinner we ate, delicious. We were expecting more basic food, but the Brazilian chef astounded us. Breakfast was fine and filling. We hope to come back soon.

    Friendly and clean”

    I stayed in a lovely room in this pub. Well decorated, good facilities, large airy with a super comfy bed. The shower room was large and clean and seemed brand new. The staff are super friendly and made me and my two chihuahuas feel very much at home. Friendly local people too - it was no problem being a solo traveller. I recommend this venue as an ideal place to stay when you are travelling through Dorset. (and there was a super play area for kids)

    Not for me”

    Kettle had black limescale No net curtains in main room, window can be seen from main road and is next to the fire escape and can also be clearly seen from the pub garden, when this was mentioned I got “there is curtains” Breakfast was dry, hard and reheated, supposedly cooked fresh, as if I wouldn’t know the difference, I had to leave it, I’m no usually that fussy an eater. Was not explained to me that when I book a time on arrival for breakfast that this will be the time for the rest of your stay, so had a call at 1100 to say that I was the only one having an early breakfast and the chef and staff came in early. Basically I got told off, so informed them I would not be having breakfast the next morning. Couldn’t cope with facing that again. I don’t usually complain about this kind of stuff but I think getting told off just pushed it over the edge.
