This was a great location.
Peaceful at night and a good base to be able to do all of the things that we wanted.
Disappointed because the room given was not the one I paid for.
I paid for a King size bed with a sea view but got only a double and no view.
Food was excellent although didn't like having to sit together with guests at breakfast, as all on one table.
Also would book a king size bed as the bed was very high and felt like you could fall out.
Very friendly and helpful staff and fantastic location.
But the room itself was very mediocre. Which is fine except when you consider the rates charged. Seems as if this place is cashing in on its location.
We stayed for one night in October just as a little birthday treat for my wife.
The area is so charming and has a lovely atmosphere, and the Mill House was perfect. Really nice staff, really helpful and were really friendly and accommodating. Great little bar with a good selection of gluten-free cakes (perfect for my wife), and although we didn't have our evening meal there, the food looked amazing with a good selection of fresh fish. Breakfast was really nice, and again the staff were really accommodating to my wife's dietary requirements. The room was really nice, quite spacious with a lovely comfy bed. We felt really relaxed and settled as soon as we got it. The location was superb, and we had a really good night's sleep, with no noise from outside or the other rooms. We were in Room 4, which had French doors out to the first floor decking, and it was really private and secluded. The area is great with lots of good walks and superb sights. We visited the Tank Museum on the way down, which we would really recommend. Really impressive, and quite humbling. On our last day, we drove round the corner to Durdle Door and that was really impressive. We will definitely come back, and we would not hesitate to stay again at the Mill House.
A lovely experience, a great breakfast
Room a little small but had everything we needed.
Only thing I would comment on us the lack of air con in the room. On hot evenings this would make guests a little more comfortable
the TV had no reception so maybe an ariel update would be a good idea or maybe satelite TV.
WIFI internet connection would have been very useful.....free WIFI access to the guests would be a benefit. Room had a superb view and was clean and comfortable.
When we arrived we were not happy to find that we had to walk through a very busy restaurant with tables very close together with our luggage, therefore interfering with the people seated at the tables.
Also not happy as there was no reception area at all and had to stand and wait at the bar just to book in when the staff were hectically trying to serve people with drinks. The location of the hotel was superb which, in all honesty, was it's saving grace. At breakfast time there was one almost empty bowl of cornflakes and one other bowl full of something resembling rice crispies - not at all our choice of cereal. The cooked breakfast, however, was fine. As for the room, it was quite small, not really a problem, but we had paid extra for a view of the pond and it was therefore supposed to be a superior room. Only trouble there is that neither theTV or radio worked. The manager told me that that was how it was in Lulworth. The staff at the hotel were pleasant enough but the service could definitely be improved as staff often forgot to bring items to the table. Although we had a pleasant weekend, due mainly to the outstanding beauty of the area, we would not recommend or stay at this hotel again.
