....we had a lovely few days over Easter. The B&B is well run and well located. Sandra and Sue are a great team. We were lucky to get a room via a cancellation especially as it was the one with the bath (Room 5). There is a lot subsidence around Lyme Regis so the room is on a slight slope....

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3- night stay at OLd Lyme Guest House. Sue and Sandra were the most cheerful and helpful hosts anybody could wish for. The house is perfectly located 'on the flat' and very close to the town centre and sea front - with free safe parking close by. Our room was very comfortable and well equipped in...

We spent two nights at the Old Lyme. The location is brilliant. Right in the centre of the town and on a beautiful old street with interesting buildings all around (including the B&B itself which is a very old building itself) I was impressed with how near we were to the beach and the high street. Sandra and Sue were...

This was the perfect place to stay in Lyme Regis. It was very convenient to the harbor, museums, shops and restaurants, yet on a quiet street. The historic building is beautifully decorated, the bed was comfortable, and Room 5’s bath was quite nice. Breakfasts were ample and delicious, and the hosts, Sue and Sandra, are charming and helpful. Our stay...

Clean, comfortable and friendly B&B. Good breakfast and in-room tea making facilities with quality biscuits. Breakfast served between 8 am and 9 am was a wee bit early for me, as was 10am checkout. Another hour added to these would make it perfect.

Many thanks for your review. We do appreciate your thoughts and feedback. It is always difficult to stretch breakfast and check out to a later time as we are a small business and have to meet other demands as well as new guests expectations to check in by midday. Regards Sandra and Sue.
