Our buying habits have changed. We have become more careful about where we choose to spend our money, and the drive to minimise the risk at a potentially disastrous experience, governs almost every decision we make, especially when we choose our accommodation on holiday or a short visit. And while we know that Beaminster, and the surrounding area, boasts a host of fantastic accommodation options, it is really the opinion of those who have chosen to stay, that really speak the truth; honest, unbiased accounts of their experiences of Beaminster service.
But when you take a look at accommodation offers in the Beaminster area, we have very little to be worried about. Reviews on TripAdvisor alone rank Beaminster accommodations as nothing less than 4 and 5 star.
We reflect on a few fantastic testimonials left by recent visitors to the town, and what they thought of their overall experience.
Since the change of ownership with a brand new look and feel, The Ollerod has been gaining excellent reviews not only locally, but in national publications too. Out of 100 reviews, an overwhelming majority of people who have reviewed the rooms themselves have voted The Ollerod as being exceptional. Common features in great reviews include the breakfast, comfortable rooms, and an extraordinary welcome received by all guests. Apparently Chris’ homemade granola is also things of champions – having received its own special mention too.
A stalwart in Beaminster, Quigley’s exceptional service and comfortable stay has been earning them excellent reviews on TripAdvisor for a number of years now. A perfect location means that guests not only have a fantastic accommodation experience, but they’re in the heart of Beaminster town with easy access to fantastic places to eat and visit and shop. Favourite mentions for Quigley go to Julie & David’s hospitality and the mention of cake! A delicious treat that, quite obviously, has visitors reminiscing about this small gesture for long after they’ve left Beaminster.
There is no second-guessing just why this wonderful cottage is rated Four Star Gold by Visit England. One only needs to browse through the host of fantastic reviews left by extremely happy guests. From guests who have visited from as far away as Australia, it’s Michael & Laurence’s hospitality which has, again, shone out. A wonderfully looked-after cottage has ensured a fantastic stay with guests who call this ‘home’ for a few days, while they explore the town and the surrounding area, with one guest particularly loving the greater spotted woodpeckers & nuthatches that came regularly visited the bird feeders for a bite to eat.
For a more spectacular break-away, the Shepherds Huts on North Buckham Farm consistently prove to be a favourite amongst many visitors to the town. With nothing less than a 5-star review rating, Trish and Andrew have created the perfect escape in which to enjoy the spoils of an unmistakable Dorset farm. Some visitors have also opted to stay in the main house too. For many wedding-attending visitors at nearby Axnoller and Mapperton, North Buckham Farm provides a wonderfully located accommodation experience, and the perfect romantic getaway. Special mentions made of the nearby grazing farm animals and the spectacular views.
