My friend from London had suggested staying at Kerrington House while traveling to Lyme Regis recently and it did not disappoint. This is a lovely bed and breakfast with impeccable service. We chose a larger ground floor suite which has anything and everything you'd need to feel comfortable and relaxed. The breakfast service was excellent and delicious, and the proprietor...

We stayed three nights at Kerrington House and really enjoyed our stay. The house and garden are beautiful, and the bedroom and bathroom - and the linen - were clean and well-appointed. The breakfasts offered a wide choice for all palates and will keep you going all day. The staff were all polite and cheerful and Fiona, the owner, could...

Booked two double rooms at very short notice, for one night stay. Fiona was very welcoming and extremely helpful to my elderly parents. A beautiful house, with a delightful garden. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, with those extra little touches to enhance your stay; e.g sherry provided! A great choice at breakfast, freshly cooked to order. All in all,...

We had a quite cold and distracted reception as the owner was watching some sport event on tv. I really liked the building but I was bitterly disappointed when I found that the linen on the bed was dirty and did not smell fresh at all. The breakfast was very nice but hygiene is a must for me.

Fiona the owner is a great host, very welcoming and was really helpful on the phone when I called about my booking. The room that I had overlooked the garden and was spacious and bright, airy and appeared to be recently redecorated. Nice touches such as hot chocolate and Horlicks as well as coffee and a small decanter with sherry....

We enjoyed a very comfortable 3-night stay at this small hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the freshly cooked breakfasts were delicious. The tea/coffee making facility in our room included generous and varied options. The accommodation, including the bathroom, was a very good size and included everything we could possibly have needed. Situated in a quiet area...

My fiancee and I stayed at this hotel on Easter Sunday for one night. Having had lunch at a local restaurant and a a stroll, we drove to the hotel which was in close proximity of the town centre. A nice large quiet house with good parking by the front garden. We were greeted by the hostess and check in...

We stayed just one night but wish we had booked for longer. Kerrington House is a tranquil and elegant retreat. The room was wonderful and the bed luxuriously comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat. We will return as soon as we can and stay much longer next time.

We had one night at Kerrington House and wished we had more. It's a beautifully decorated an presented house, with some lovely attention to detail. We received a warm welcome and our room was relaxing and again beautifully decorated. The breakfast was better by far than I've had in some high starred hotels. I can't recommend this lovely B&B highly...
