The furniture and carpets in public areas could do with updating.
Location was remote but lovely. The food was excellent
The hotel is located in a picturesque location, close to the seaside. It has pleasant communal areas, including a outdoor terrace area. There seems to be ample parking. Bridport and West Bay are a short drive, and there is ready access to/from the A35.
To be fair, the standard of accommodation is probably on par with most other hotels in the area (and the English seaside in general). Unfortunately, that standard is very poor by contemporary expectations. One night of accommodation cost me about US$150, and for that I got a tired old room complete with a television that looked like it was straight from the 1980s. I suspect the room was located above the kitchen, as the corridor was filled with the smells of cooking (and not in a nice way). The shower was simply ridiculous. It was difficult to get wet due to such little water flow - literally a trickle. Honestly, I felt dirtier after the shower than before. No wonder the British have a reputation for not washing. I wouldn’t wash if it meant standing in a bathtub under a trickle of luke warm water with a shower curtain clinging to me - all of which was my experience at the Eype’s Mouth Hotel. The showering experience alone is enough for me to not recommend staying. Sure, I could have taken a bath. However I figured the water flow was such that the luke warm water would be cold when finally at a usable depth. Oh yeah, and I’m not inclined to sit in water I’ve just used to wash myself. I can’t comment much on the staff as my interactions were limited. On arrival somebody handed me a key (with a tag the size of a cricket bat) before I was left to lug my bags up a flight of narrow stairs and along a corridor conveniently fitted with three self closing fire doors to my room. On departure (after lugging my bags along the reverse route from my room) somebody else handed me a receipt, perhaps not game to ask ‘how was your stay?’ The following night I stayed at the Premier Inn, Heathrow Terminal 4. The room cost me about US$60 and provided everything the Eype’s Mouth didn’t - contemporary comfort and (best of all) an adequately functioning shower. At last I felt clean again. Now that was a restful night.
Breakfast was superb. Nice bar with a good selection of drinks too. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. I would stay again.
The room was fine, however the en-suite bathroom could be better.
Everything about this hotel exceded our expectations food from breakfast to evening meals both from the bar snacks to main restaurant was superb. all staff were excellent and rooms not only clean and tidy but comfortable,
