I'd like to compliment one of your employees, Natalie Read, General Manager at The Acorn Inn, for the outstanding service she provided my family and I on Sunday 5th March 2017. Such a commitment to great customer service needs to be both acknowledged and commended. Natalie was quite simply a shining star on what could have been a most stressful...

On arrival, we were greeted by very polite and welcoming staff who showed us to our room. Our room, which had been upgraded to a room with a four poster, was clean and comfortable. We had dinner here in the evening which was plentiful, delicious and reasonably priced. Our breakfast was equally good. We would stay again when visiting the...

I was really looking forward to my first visit to the Acorn Inn sadly it didn't match my expectations - the food was acceptable however I felt over priced and the drinks were extortionate at over £11 for 3 pints of soft fizzy drinks one of which was poured from a 2litre lemonade bottle. I guess I was just expecting...

Dear Switcher87 Thank you for taking the time to write your review of the Acorn. We are saddened to hear that your visit did not meet your expectations. 3 pints of lemonade should not have been charged over £11, in which we must have made an error. We apologise for this mistake and we would have rectified this if it...

After staying at the Rubens in London over New Year it was a coincidence that we ended up at the Acorn which is in the same Red Carnation group. We came here on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal for £370 for a Friday and Saturday night (we have reviewed the dinners seperately). The Inn is in a lovely location...

Old fashioned set up but clean and tidy rooms with a Modern tv and bathroom. Staff could not have been more helpful. A touch pricey for a mid January night in Dorset - other than that perfect. Breakfast was of a high quality.

We went to the Acorn Inn for a weekend break and were not disappointed. We actually booked a cheaper double room but were given a four-poster (yeaaay!!). The lady who greeted us was very nice and somehow managed to fit us in for afternoon tea at the Summer Lodge (across the road). That place was just worth for a look...
