We had an absolutely wonderful stay at The Crown. We were greeted warmly despite our late arrival and were encouraged to settle in and relax in the bar as we had driven for some time. The room was beautifully decorated, very stylish and comfortable with everything you can need. Lovely bathroom too! The breakfast was delicious- a wide range of buffet items and a great menu offering too. Special highlight was the honey on its comb. I'd really recommend staying here and look forward to coming back soon. Thank you!
As Blandford Forum's primary hotel The Crown has always been a focal point and played a central role in many of the town's events. In recent decades several major refurbishments and transitions in management have taken place, some less successful than others... but I'm incredibly happy to confirm that the most recent incarnation is by far the best! Re-opening in early 2017 the entire venue has been given a complete upgrade. Now featuring a beautiful and inviting bar with oak panels, an excellent menu and rooms which have been renovated with the utmost care to provide modern comfort but in a traditional country house style. Top marks!

Very friendly and served a very well appreciated roast, with good vegetarian alternatives too.
Staff were lovely, very nice pub but food was very mediocre

Nice pub with cosey atmosphere, good live music too!
Newly decorated and brightened up no end. A real pub with a proper friendly landlord determined to make a go of it. Live music ongoing and food in the pipeline..

The Dolphin is a nice little country pub. It is an unpretentious and friendly place that is popular with the locals who want a quiet pint but is also welcoming to visitors. You won't find boutique ales or specialist gins but you will get an honest pint and a smile. It's a little more lively at the weekends and they have occasionally had live music (although not that I've seen recently and it is really too small anyway). I've not eaten there but I've heard good things. Recommended.
Glad to see it has re opened. Friendly pub

Quiet when first went in. Good choice of food on menu + specials. Unfortunately didn't have the special available at time of ordering. However both chose of lunch menu in the end. Nice to have freshly home cooked food. Maybe next time will be a bit busier.
Excellent Cream Tea. Great time. Very friendly. atmosphere. We will be back.

We absolutely loved this place! It was like a secret heaven hidden away in the middle of Blandford Forum. Amazing, comfortable and cozy place with great people. Delicious home-made food. We stayed there in June with my mom, stepdad and boyfriend. I would definitely love to go there again. Thank you very much for the hospitality!
My partner and I stayed for 2 nights here for a weekend away. I had bought Hall and Woodhouse brewery tour for my partner for Christmas and chose to stay at Bryanston cottage instead of at The Crown hotel (which was lovely, we had dinner there one night and their bar was very nice). The main reason for choosing the cottage was because of the beautiful scenery and fantastic reviews. We weren't disappointed. John and Lexi were ever so welcoming. Lemon drizzle cake on arrival, free room upgrade (we stayed in the studio flat, toured the rest of the house which was gorgeous, but the studio flat with it's own entrance was ever so convenient) and let us leave the car in their car park after we had checked out so we could explore the town before leaving Blandford. WE WOULD STAY HERE AGAIN! Beautiful part of England, and with such welcoming hosts (I didn't even mention the breakfast, full continental PLUS a full English breakfast! Truly scrummy) we definately recommend.

Caroline and Steve are terrific hosts. She is a great cook providing home made preserves at breakfast as well as poached plums for example. She can do unusual items for breakfast such as spiced beans :) The house has character and reams of old books. The rooms are comfy with their own, but across the landing, bathrooms. Steve recommends Ice Age 1, 2 and 3!
A first class place to stay in Blandford

Fantastic value for money. Owners were terrific and just couldn't do enough for me. Not ultra modern, but if you appreciate quality of service and a spotlessly clean and comfortable environment, this is the one for you.
If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!

Stayed here for the first time last week and was very impressed with everything. Toilets & showers very clean, the campsite is very spacious and clean. We have moved our caravan to the storage on site from a caravan club site and were not sure what it would be like but we needn't have worried because it was wonderful. The weather let us down a bit in the week but the weekend made up for it. The children's playground is well stocked for both young and slightly older children. Looking forward to going again later in the year'
My family come here loads cause we love it! The play area is amazing and the toilets and showers are always clean! And I love the fact that there's loads of things to discover in the park and the woods! Love it!
