The BridgeHouse Hotel in Dorset has been named as one of Britain's 50 cosiest hotels by The Daily Telegraph, which praises its "snug bar, inglenook fireplaces, oak beams and handsome bedrooms".

The 700-year-old property is set by the River Brit in Beaminster formerly a priest's house. The property has won a Fabulous Food Award from Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay which sums it up nicely -- "a chic hotel in a pretty country town with excellent food, stylish bedrooms and hills all around for deep country walks". 

Dine in the 2-AA-Rosette Beaminster Brasserie, which serves classic British dishes and focuses on local produce -- think home-made bread, Dorset lamb and Lyme Bay seafood. Menus vary depending on the season and availability of produce. During warmer evenings the brasserie menu is available -- perfect for dining on the terrace or in the Sun Room conservatory.

All of the 13 individually designed ensuite bedrooms come with free Wi-Fi, Italian linen, guest robes and tea and coffee-making facilities. Deluxe, Four Poster and Superior rooms are in the main house and most Superior rooms have garden views. In 1995 the old stables were converted into the CoachHouse, a detached building at the rear of hotel offering country-style accommodation. There are two family suites and four pet-friendly bedrooms.

The hotel is less than 15-minutes' drive from the Jurassic Coast -- where "Broadchurch" was filmed -- which spans 95 miles and is peppered with geological gems. The hotel is the perfect location for walking holidays and there's plenty to do in the local area. Lyme Regis, a picturesque seaside town set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a 30-minute drive away. Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are a 50-minute drive away.

Limited meal choices on evening menu. The steak was £26.50 and duck was £26.50. Two desserts at £7.50 each. Two glasses of wine costing £16.25. Then 10% service charge on top (£9.21). £30.00 off this made the evening meal £64.46. This was over priced and not worth the money. The room was small. No offer of an upgrade was mentioned. The bed was double not kingsize. I requested a gluten free breakfast. This was acknowledged at our arrival but was not available at breakfast time.

Lovely spacious room, well furnished. Warm welcome on checking in. Breakfast was fine and the other courses relating to the 2 nights we stayed.
Other Comments
Service in the dining room was poor, coupled with lack of ambience. Sirloin steak on second evening was poor quality despite a hefty price and no response from senior staff after our commenting on this. Not particularly happy paying 10% discretionary tip for all drinks, even ordered in the bar.
