Why We Love It

  • This Grade II-listed country manor has three indoor swimming pools for children and adults to use, a sauna and beauty treatment rooms
  • You can take in plenty of sea air, with the Dorset Coast Path and Chesil Beach right on the hotel's doorstep
  • The Mediterranean restaurant specialises in locally sourced fare


A converted stately home that overlooks Dorset's Chesil Beach and the Fleet Lagoon, Moonfleet Manor is surrounded by rural scenery and coastal walks. The hotel is on the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with cliffs and coves that are known for their fossils. The Dorset Coast Path and Chesil Beach -- which, at 18 miles, is said to be the longest shingle beach in the world -- are also on the hotel's doorstep.

Abbotsbury, a picture-postcard village of honey-coloured buildings that's home to Abbotsbury Swannery, as well as popular beach fishing spots, is a 15-minute drive away. From the hotel, you can can walk the South West Coast Path along the West Dorset Heritage Coast, or drive 20 minutes to Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park and Tower and feed penguins and green sea turtles. The Isle of Portland, with its famous red-and-white Portland Bill Lighthouse and abundance of fish-and-chip shops, takes 30 minutes to reach by car.

According to The Daily Telegraph, "you will be well looked after" at this hotel, and there is something for everyone: facilities include a cinema, three heated indoor swimming pools, a sauna and beauty treatment rooms. The Mediterranean-style restaurant uses local suppliers for everything from seafood to ale.

With two cosy lounges and a garden terrace, there's plenty of space in which to unwind. Children are well catered for, too -- there is an indoor football pitch, a skittle alley, an Ofsted-registered crèche and baby-listening services (extra charges apply). Dogs can stay for £15 per dog, per night (payable to the hotel).

The Manor itself and the many fascinating old photos, curios etc and sitting rooms and would recommend it to others for that reason and it's setting. Excellent food.
Other Comments
The bedroom was very outdated (no accessible sockets for charger, hairdryer etc), poor lighting and cramped bathroom. However very comfortable bed, good shower, hospitality tray, fluffy towels etc. Wine and drinks pricey.
