Guest Reviews

A 10 Star B&B
This guest house is amazing, Perfect is every way. Friendly and helpful owners. The breakfast choice is unbelievable something for everyone whatever their tastes. In walking distance of the town, buses and railway stations. Very near a good choice of eateries for the evening meals. An excellent base for exploring Dorset after a good nights sleep.

Bed & Breakfast in Dorchester

"Perfect in Every Way" - Geoff Cawley, Guestbook, July 2021 

Aquila Heights will re-open for the 2022 season on 1st February. We have been busy this winter, and hope to have completed refurbishing the shower rooms in rooms 2, 5 and 6, as well as re-carpeting most of the bedrooms. Please note that we have also converted room 2 into a double room, due to the number of requests for this. 

Until further notice, we are continuing to follow all our Covid19 processes, including deep cleaning, face coverings and social distancing in the breakfast room. Our priority is to make our guests feel safe and comfortable.

Aquila Heights is a friendly and comfortable guest house offering quality B&B accommodation in Dorchester. Our south-facing Edwardian house has 6 individual light and airy bedrooms offering modern facilities and original period character.

  • Home from home comfort, large extra-length beds, quality bedding, well stocked bathrooms
  • The indulgent Aquila breakfast - loads and loads of choice, lots of local Dorset ingredients, all freshly prepared and cooked to order.
  • Free off-road parking & high-speed WiFi. 
  • Electric vehicle charging point.
  • Secure dry overnight cycle storage. Rental bikes delivered direct to the door. Wet clothes drying for cyclists and walkers
  • Free collection and return from railway and coach stations (sorry, currently not available due to covid19)
  • Quiet, easy to find location. Walking distance to the town centre and ideal for touring and exploring West Dorset, Hardy Country and the Jurassic Coast.
  • Panoramic views from the bedrooms include the ramparts of Maiden Castle, Hardy's Monument & the South Dorset Ridgeway.

2021 Cancellation Policy: We take payment for the first night of your stay as a deposit. This is refundable for any reason up to seven days before your arrival. In addition, if your visit has to be cancelled due to a change in the UK Government's Covid19 restrictions, we will refund your deposit at any time up until the day of arrival.
