"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. "

"Absolutely wonderful, such a warm welcome, the rooms were immaculate. A vast choice of shampoos and shower gels. Hot chocolate, cookies, various teas and coffees in our rooms. The breakfast was amazing and out hosts accommodated our mixed choices with smiles and nothing was too much trouble. I stayed with my two daughters in one room and my parents were just across the landing. It was so comfortable, we all had a good sleep. The pillows and bedding were soft and warm 10 out of 10 all round. Would highly recommend. We will be returning next spring hopefully! "

"Perfect Choice. We stayed here for the weekend of our wedding (my entire family, the first night and my husband and I the second night). Derek and Wendy were fantastic and so helpful from the first point of contact until the morning after the wedding and accommodated all our needs (which I think involved 20 of us in the house - hair, make up, photographer, bridesmaids etc - on the morning of the wedding). They made everything so easy and many little extra efforts and personal touches did not go unnoticed - right down to the "Just Married" banner on the door when arriving home after the wedding. The food is delicious, beautiful rooms,the hospitality is impeccable and the views speak for themselves. Aquila Heights is a wonderful place to stay and I shall continue to tell everyone this. Many thanks for all your efforts and all the extra things you did to make it such an enjoyable stay and such a wonderful, easy flowing wedding morning. I cannot thank Derek and Wendy enough for making such a wonderful weekend even better with their service and hospitality. Highly recommended. "

"Visited Dorchester last weekend for a Christening and booked in to Aquila Heights without looking at reviews just on webpage description. The welcome, service, room and food were simply the best we have experienced. Thankyou Derek and Wendy - wonderful hosts.  "

"Excellent in every way - Aquila Heights is an ideal place to stay for exploring Dorchester and surrounding countryside. The rooms I've stayed in were large and airy, spotlessly clean and well furnished, and the owners, Derek and Wendy went out of their way to make my stays enjoyable. The food is excellent with plenty of choice and I would thoroughly recommend Aquila Heights. The views over towards Maiden Castle are amazing. "

"What a find, a great Bed & Breakfast. On arrival given a warm welcome. We stayed in room five, a large room overlooking the main road but fully double glazed so no trouble with traffic noise. Room fully equipped every beverage you could require, even a large packet a biscuits to enjoy. Room of high quality and furnished with everything you would need for your stay including very comfortable bed. The breakfast menu was the best we have ever seen, putting some hotels to shame. Congratulations to Derek & Wendy, a first class establishment. "
