Positive Reviews

Comfortable B&B accommodations.

Past guests staying at the Royal Yeoman B&B describe accommodations as spacious and comfortable, while breakfast is said to be delicious and plentiful. Meanwhile, guests staying in rooms at the back of the property enjoy picturesque views of the countryside.

Warm and welcoming hosts.

Guests are quick to praise the husband and wife team that runs the B&B. According to reports, these hosts offer a warm and friendly welcome and deliver first class customer service throughout the duration of a stay.

Plenty of parking.

Converted from a former village inn, the B&B offers plenty of parking, a detail past guests have been quick to praise. Even those guests driving larger vehicles find it easy to park at the Royal Yeoman B&B.

Negative Reviews

Some noise from road-facing rooms.

A few guests staying in road-facing rooms at the Royal Yeoman B&B find themselves disrupted by traffic noise. The B&B is located on the A37, the major route connecting Dorchester and Yeovil, which means a certain degree of noise is inevitable. Other guests report that well-glazed windows help to limit the disturbance.

Water pressure can be weak.

Several guests have been critical of the water pressure in en suite bathrooms. According to these guests, the weak water pressure means a shower isn't always as powerful as they would like.
