Reviewed 23 October 2016

Comfortable, clean, and a 5-minute walk to town. Yvonne is a warm, welcoming host who is thoroughly knowledgable about this area of Dorset. Group breakfasts were enjoyable. Beautiful garden in back. We have spent about 50 nights in the UK and Ammonite B&B is in our top 3 or 4 places to stay. Highly recommended.

The only small fly in the ointment was that my daughter and I were given what is probably the only room with two single beds. It was pretty cramped, and though we had a...

We had a 4 days mini break to re-explore the area - our last visit was over 50 years ago! The very good reviews of Ammonite persuaded us to book and we had the South Room. Everything was as we hoped for and exceeded our expectations. This really is an excellent B & B. We will be back and next...
