4 reviews of The Bull Hotel in English
Great hotel. Very relaxed, casual, feel, with friendly, efficient service. Superb food, and an excellent wine list too. Not quite London prices, as other reviews suggest, and certainly of a quality that for us justified the price.
We had a family room at the back of the hotel which, though not massive, was very comfortable and absolutely fine for our needs (and had a separate small sleeping room with bunk beds for our son).
The hotel is child-friendly, and provided both childrens tea and great baby-sitters (and also has a listening service if you don’t want to go to the expense of a sitter).
All-in-all, a great base for a much enjoyed three day escape!

We were looking for a nice place to spend the Easter weekend in the countryside (we are Londoners with a small young family) and ended up by chance at the Bull Hotel. We had a great time, the hotel is simple and charming in Bridport, a small town with a vibrant market on Saturdays and not much happening the rest of the week. The staff is really nice and the hotel has a great “homy” feeling, no posh service just friendly and professional support when you need it. The rooms have they own personality with elegant wallpapers and French antique furniture, and the bar and restaurant are lively, comfy but also quite stylish. There is a nice little hidden bar with armchairs and dark walls that opens up at night. The food was really good and good value (by London standard, a bit expensive compared to local alternatives). The Bull Hotel is rally child friendly which is why we went there and we were able to test that with our own little monsters (they loved the “Ball Room” where they could play in the hotel and they loved the bunk bed in their little room next to ours). Bridport is a good base to explore Dorset and the Bull Hotel is the perfect base for a young family or couple in need of a restful place to relax with no stress and make the most of this beautiful part of England. We may well be back.. and will definitely recommend the place to our friends.
I was really disappointed with this hotel, especially given the number of good reviews I’d read across the media for it. Our room was so small that I had to get out the end of the bed, there wasn’t enough room at the side. Given the emphasis they place on food I thought the breakfast was unimpressive - cheap orange juice rather than freshly squeezed and what tasted like cheap marmalade which didn’t taste any nicer just because it was decanted into a nice serving dish. I found the service indifferent and would definitely not go back.
I’m in two minds as to what I think to this boutique hotel in Bridport, Dorset. On the one hand the rooms are lovely, all differently designed with a mixture of old and new furniture, Neals Yard toiletries and fluffy white towels. On the other hand the rooms at the front of the hotel are noisy being on the main road, not brilliantly finished and in some cases right slap bang next to the gents loos for the bar downstairs. Also the prices they charge are London type prices but do not feel value for money. The food however is fantastic and well worth a visit even if you don’t stay in the hotel.
