Lovely chalet, and comfy bed, good walks into charmouth and lyme regis, but very steep. Hotel only serves food at 7pm and you have to pre order by 4pm, so not good if a last minute decision. Lots of rivalry between hotel and chalets, and you need to book swimming pool between 10.00-12.00 in the morning. However we enjoyed our short stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Little Char, it was comfortable and had everything we needed, the pool at the hotel was a bonus. Well situated for Charmouth and Lyme Regis with the bus and park and ride making Lyme Regis particularly accessible without parking in town. We would return to Little Char.

Lovely property. Surprisingly well heated. Beautiful gardens and views. Each cottage has it's own garden area and reasonably private access.

Small but very comfortable space. Excellent bed-so comfy. Nice quite estate with some lovely walks for the dog. Only issue was the warnings about ticks in the long grass which were actually dead right! Had to make sure the dog got his 'spot on' after just one walk-found at least 3 ticks. Otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable weeks stay, nice and quiet.

Little Char is a good base to explore nearby places. The apartment is reasonably well equipped, however it is crammed with unnecessary furniture items (i.e. wicker baskets), resulting in little space for personal items. The level of cleanliness was far below what we expected. We spent the first hour of our stay cleaning the kitchen, as the cupboardRead mores, worktops and tiles were covered in grease and stains. Very unpleasant and not what we were hoping for. Because of this, we would not go back. Hide

A lovely accommodation in a nice location! I enjoyed the walks from the footpath at the back down to Charmouth Beach and Lyme Regis. The apartment had everything I needed, was clean and very quiet. It was easy to drive over to other places like West Bay, Colmer's Hill and Portland for walks. I would highly recommend staying here especially when theRead more hotel next door is open and access to the swimming pool and restaurant is available. Hide
