Both, Sue & Garry were very accommodating and welcoming. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and all the required facilities for a short break. The breakfast was excellent and the parking was ideal. Lovely location in Dorset with great views. Will highly recommend. Thank you for the experience

Stayed for 6 nights in a good sized room with good bathroom. Excellent hosts and very good full breakfasts freshly cooked. Good parking on site, a reasonably distance from Dorchester on the main road to Yeovil making access to the surrounding areas easy. Would recommend whole heartedly.

This is an exceptionally comfortable B&B, situated on the main road just north of Dorchester. Despite its location on the main road, we were not troubled by traffic noise, though very light sleepers might prefer a room facing away from the road. The beds were very comfortable and the whole establishment extremely clean and fresh. The English breakfast selection was...

From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcome. Our room was at the back with a lovely view. The bed was extremely comfortable. We had the best nights sleep. The breakfast was outstanding. The owners were very friendly and recommended places to go. We were so impressed we have already booked again. Highly recommend

We stayed at the Royal Yeoman on our way from Bath to the Jurassic Coast. The B and B sits on a main road but we had a lovely spacious room with a very comfortable bed at the back. Our room overlooked a small stream and the countryside beyond. On arrival we were warmly greeted by our hosts, who when...

It is so nice when I get to stay away from the chain hotels if you get a good one. Well this is excellent as B&B's go. Massive room, great sleep, very good breakfast, pleasant conversation and a nice garden by a stream. Recommended to a local pub for dinner that was also excellent.

Just three words to describe our stay at the Royal Yeoman and that is SUPERB SUPERB SUPERB.
