Just three words to describe our stay at the Royal Yeoman and that is SUPERB SUPERB SUPERB. From the moment we arrived we were very nicely welcomed even though we inconveniently arrived early; shown to our room with minimum fuss and left in piece thereafter. The proprietors Garry & Sue are fabulous hosts and people and made us at home...

I stayed on a Bussiness trip, so found this guest house to be superb, it provided everything I needed. The wifi was good, the bed was really comfortable, then just to make my stay perfect the breakfast was excellent.

This was a very last minute booking and we were not disappointed. The rooms are very comfortable & the noise from the road is surprisingly muted. Breakfast was great with friendly service. The attached campsite looks very welcoming with the river running alongside, giving plenty of outdoor space. It is up for sale so changes may be happening in the...

Situated on the A road, and with gated parking. My room was large and clean, and Sue and Gary were both friendly and helpful. They no longer do food in the evening, but magicked me a meal after my long drive. If I'd arrived earlier, the local pub was recommended. My only downside was the very strong fabric softener scent...

We stayed two nights and found it a good jump off place to tour the South Dorset area without staying in Dorchester. Although on a busy road, the room was quiet and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The only down side to our stay was the bed, which was too low with a too soft mattress. The Saxon...

We had a very comfortable room, quiet in spite of heavy traffic on a busy road. The pub nearby was excellent. The location allowed us to avoid busy Dorchester and be on our way West with ease. Our hosts were interested and welcoming. Breakfast was a great start to the day.

We had a lovely and spacious room. Our breakfast was excellent and our host friendly and helpful. A pub nearby was recommended for dinner which we thoroughly enjoyed. A very comfortable and welcoming spot after a long day on the road!

Sue is a wonderful host. The beds were large and the showers worked well. Breakfast was wonderful. This is right by a busy road, however they have dual paned windows so the road noise is removed. Great value for the money

“Front rooms are on the main road side, but double glazing knocks the sound back but a back side room might be quieter.”
