Rashelle T,
My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights recently. The accomodation was immaculately clean and the couple were perfect hosts. Only a 5 minute walk into the town centre, I can highly reccomend Aln house. The breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked to order, I had the kippers, delicious.

2 night stay


Stephen S,
From the friendly welcome to the quiet comfortable house and the wonderful breakfasts we had a lovely time. Good parking and 10min walk to town centre or Castle gardens was very convenient. Clean tastefully decorated rooms with comfortable beds and fresh milk in fridge on landing was a welcome touch.

Couldn't be better


anncolly, Blandford Forum, United Kingdom
Smashing place to stay. Joe and Sharon both delightful, friendly yet professional hosts. O.K., being asked to pay on arrival and book breakfast the night before seemed a little strange until you realised that this was the only way to ensure that everyone received exactly what they wanted for breakfast in comfort and did not have to wait to settle up on departure, They were both more than accommodating (keeping food in the freezer for us to take home), offering discount vouchers and restaurant recommendations, Everything was spotless, the breakfast couldn't be faulted and they deserve a brilliant future in this place which they have only recently taken over. Definitely to be recommended.
