Hotels in Dorset

Whether you’re looking for boutique, budget, luxury or 5 star hotel standard, Dorset offers such a fantastic selection that we are confident you can book your ideal hotel stay with us.

Boutique country hotel retreats

Dorset really delivers hotels to cater for every preference, our relatively compact county offers glorious rural locations within easy reach of award-winning beaches and the dramatic Jurassic Coast.

How about a small, stylish hotel in the heart of the countryside? These charming hotels are situated in some stunning locations and offer beautiful views that are a treat for your senses.

The Ollerod in picturesque Beaminster has earned a prestigious reputation for its mix of stylish accommodation and a highly accomplished menu featuring locally sourced produce.

The Bridge House is an independent, family run Grade 2 listed Georgian town house offering accommodation combining both modern and traditional styles, sitting just a stone’s throw from the centre of the historic market town of Bridport.

Treat yourself to a luxury hotel escape

Five star luxury in a stunning countryside setting? Yes please! Boasting spa facilities, impeccable service, opulent bedrooms and excellent standards throughout, Summer Lodge Country House Hotel and Spa is truly a place to relax, unwind and regenerate.

Or perhaps you’d prefer to stay in a boutique, town centre hotel with elegant décor and furnishings delivering that touch of class; you won’t be disappointed. With sophisticated tastefully decorated bedrooms, a cosy cocktail bar and superb local produce being served, The Eastbury is a fine choice in the charming heritage town of Sherborne.

Great hotels for seaside staycations

Dorset’s charming seaside towns have plenty of well maintained, traditional hotels that won’t make you break the bank or compromise on quality. Swanage, Weymouth, and Lyme Regis all have bags of bucket-and-spade appeal and reasonably priced hotels and guest houses to choose from.

We simply adore the views over Chesil Beach and Weymouth from The Heights Hotel, located on the fascinating Isle of Portland.

For a family (and dog) friendly hotel option with excellent facilities, book a stay at the Knoll House Hotel in Studland (a favourite of Enid Blyton!) and make the most of their swimming pools, tennis courts, golf course and close proximity to the wonderful sandy beach at Studland.

Another great family choice is the Moonfleet Manor, which offers a complimentary crèche and large play area for the little ones to enjoy, plus spa treatments for the adults to indulge in. This imposing Georgian manor is steeped in history and is set behind the tranquil Fleet lagoon nature reserve with views over Chesil beach.
