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. Chesil Beach -- which, at 18 miles, is said to be the longest shingle beach in the world -- is 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 walk the South West Coast Path along the West Dorset Heritage Coast, or drive 20 minutes to Weymouth SEA LIFE Adventure Park and Tower to 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. Its facilities include a cinema, three heated indoor swimming pools, a sauna and beauty treatment rooms (charges apply). 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).

Was fabulous, perfect family hotel, fabulous weekend

VERY family friendly hotel with lots of young children having a great time - unfortunately this affects any adults who would like a more sophisticated break. If they could provide an adult only lounge and bar the hotel would be more appealing to us a couple. Staff were very attentive and helpful so would like to return if the above changes were made.

2 excellent nights with a group of friends. We had the amazing separate dining room and lounge with the open fire and good food. Staff couldn't do enough.

Very quiet when children are not there. If children are there, so what? What is wrong with children?

moonfleet is very geared up for children, it has an amazing entertaining centre for all ages, if you want a child free hotel its not for you. The waiting staff were extremely helpful. Lunch a little expensive

Great service, excellent food however the decor in the hotel is very tired. We were given a room in the annex, walls were paper thin. Could hear the guest next door on the phone. On the plus side, it was a really good deal which included breakfast & Dinner.

The hotel is lovely. The room was excellent. The food was delicious. The downside was that there were lots of small children, some of whom were running around the lounge area at 10pm. Dogs were sitting on the settees, which in my view is not acceptable. I was not aware that the hotel was child and dog friendly. Apart from that it was lovely. I would not go again for those reasons.
