very comfortable and very welcoming - the perfect stay - Rating 5/5

I had a wonderful time staying at Ammonite Lodge:- a nice, spotlessly clean room furnished with a very comfortable bed and equipped with everything you could possibly need (e.g. ironing board) or wish for (not only tea and coffee, but sweets and biscuits)- an excellent breakfast with home-made jams/marmelade. What made this stay absolutely perfect was that Katherine and James made me feel as if I was staying with good friends, although this was my first stay at Ammonite Lodge. I had such a good time chatting with you -thank you!So I am looking forward very much to my next stay.

Thank you very much Marie! We are looking forward to welcoming you back very soon! Best wishes James & Katherine

One night stay at Ammonite Lodge - Rating 5/5

James and Catherine were wonderful hosts. Our family room was beautifully clean and homely. Breakfast was wonderful. Thank you very much. We would definitely stay again but would probably choose the easy option of street parking nearby as the car parking space is very tight.

Wonderful! - Rating 5/5

We stayed for two nights with our little boy. James and Kathleen couldn\'t do enough for us, bringing us milk for our little boy, extra bedding and even setting a special breakfast place for him with his own cup. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, we loved the courtyard garden and so close to restaurants and of course Lyme Regis for the seaside. Thank you!

We really liked our stay in the ammonite lodge. Katherine and James do everything to make you feel at home. My daughter and I stayed in the two bed en-suite room.A nice room, the only disadvantage is that there is no real door in the bathroom, which could prove awkward depending on your company.Our car was parked in front of the hotel. It\'s a perfect base for trips around Somerset and Devon

Delightful! - Rating 5/5

I stayed at the Ammonite this week and was treated with a rare but genuine warmth from start to finish. The premises are spotless and tastefully decorated and bright and colourful, but it is the \'little details\' that make all the difference - the sweets on the tea tray and the tissues by the bed. There is a guest sitting room which is very homely and had I had longer I definitely would have used it to relax, and the dining room next door was beautifully but unobtrusively, Christmassy, with \'presents\' wrapped beneath the small tree - my room was clean and very comfortable and I had a wide range of drinks available to choose from - Catherine offered me a flask of fresh milk upon arrival for my tea - which was greatly appreciated.My breakfast was a pure delight. There was a wide variety of goodies to choose from:juices, jams & toppings, cereals, etc, the coffee was wonderful and came in my own personal cafetiere...but the cooked breakfast was delicious and could not be faulted! Mine hosts were charming and very welcoming - I shall come back again and bring my husband next time. Thank you very much Ammonite Lodge & WELL DONE!

Overnight stay - Rating 4/5

Beautiful house with a good variety on offer for breakfast. With 2 of our party over 6ft the low ceilings in the attic room were a challenge but the room was lovely. Whilst our son\'s bed was very comfortable, the double bed mattress was way too firm for our liking which was the only down side to our stay.

Great - Rating 5/5

Stayed in chard simply to meet a friend for one night and I came down from the Midlands. I chose the Ammonite lodge based on price and ratings.When I arrived, Katherine was very friendly and helpful and showed me the room.The only downside to room 3 was a separate bathroom, being 6m across the landing. Otherwise everything was excellent and comfortable.The breakfast seemed to be very well laid out with a huge choice of things and full English offered as well (I don\'t eat breakfast so only had tea, which was nice!)

Exceptionally clean and Safe for single travellers - Rating 4/5

I spent one night here whilst on a business trip. I felt relaxed and welcome, the room was everything needed for an overnight stay.The only negative is parking, there are only 4 spaces at the front of the building on the main high street, there is parking a short distance away but this isn\'t ideal when you have bags to carry.Unfortunately my schedule didn\'t allow time for me to wait for breakfast to begin so I cannot comment on that.Overall nice place and I would stay again.

Our weekend in Chard and Axminster to visit relations and local sites of interest was made complete by our stay at The Ammonite Lodge. From the point of arrival we were warmly welcomed by Catherine and James and quickly settled into our room. During our stay nothing was too much trouble for them to answer our queries with advice and help. The hotel itself was able to meet all our needs and feel like home. The accommodation, food and amenities were first class. My wife and I along with my brother and his wife would have no hesitation in recommending the Ammonite Lodge to friends and relatives. May I take this opportunity to thank the proprietors Catherine and James for making our weekend such an enjoyable time.

We had a top floor family room that was spacious and clean with fresh linen and hospitality touches that went that extra mile you seldom see in even top class hotels. Fresh milk, bottled water, sweets and chocolates and even a great selection of games. Plenty of complementary toiletries too. Breakfast was abundant and delicious. Katherine and James were even able to oblige us with an early check in due to a wedding we were attending. All simply outstanding. Can\'t recommend it highly enough.

Warmest and friendliest hospitality - Rating 5/5

James and Katherine have been nothing but wonderful and most hospitable during our 2 nights stay at Ammonite Lodge. Nothing was too difficult for them and when one is traveling with 3 young boys, it is a major plus! The rooms (Room 1 & 6) were clean (fresh, crisp linens!!) and breakfast was healthy with good variety. I am gluten and dairy intolerant, and had put a small request in, no surprise it was catered for during breakfast. We are all blown away, can\'t wait to visit again next year!

Just Lovely ! - Rating 4/5

Havent really been in many B& B\'s so wasnt sure what to expect but Ammonite Lodge was lovely. Katherine and James were very friendly and very welcoming nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic and they even catered for my non gluten diet. Definitely worth a visit. Only 1 tiny problem was the road noise but if you ask for a room at the back this wouldnt be a problem. Very clean and tidy, a lovely place to stay.

5⭐️ Service & Standards. A real B& B gem! - Rating 5/5

We first met Katherine and James when James was running 5 star hotels in Asia. Ammonite lodge is no exception to this standard. Every little detail has been thought of and it truly is an exceptional B& B.The house is exceptionally welcoming and full of character with a super guest lounge,breakfast room and a quaint garden to enjoy. The breakfast is a culinary feast with a multitude of fresh fruits, cereals, yogurts, toast, homemade jams and a made to your liking English breakfast. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and well appointed with fluffy towels, robes, full tea and coffee facilities and even a plentiful supply of fresh milk, biscuits and sweeties (a big hit with the children!)We loved our time away. Ammonite lodge is a real \'home from home\' and we will definitely be back!

Stayed three nights in this charming B& B while we explored the surrounding area. James and Katherine, the hosts, have gone to exceptional heights to make the place as cosy and comfortable as possible with great little touches, with treats in the rooms, to welcome you back every day. The breakfast is better than some top hotels that I\'ve stayed in with such a choice of fruits, cereals and cooked to order full English. I would recommend a stay here.

Both Katherine and James were kind, welcoming and helpful in answering any questions I may have about both the hotel and Chard itself. Not only was the room spotless and clean, but there was also tea and a welcoming cupcake, which was very much appreciated. Both the bathroom and the room itself were very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was a highlight and a great way to start off the day, with an astounding number of choices, including a delicious full English Breakfast. 10/10 would recommend staying there, whether it is for a short trip at Chard or for a more extended period of time.

Ammonite lodge is an old building (to state the obvious), the place is quirky. The stairs are easy. Our twin room was small but had everything. Catherine and James are amongst the best hosts that we have EVER come across, super kind and attentive. Excellent breakfast, fresh produce, cooked just for you. We loved all the little touch\'s, cup of tea when you arrive, fresh flowers in the room, super towels etc. the list goes on! and Wi-Fi (if you must). We would recommend an evening meal at the Bath house restaurant around the corner from Ammonite Lodge, fusion of English and Asian.We would stay at the Ammonite Lodge again, any time.

We got a warm welcome and the staff were very helpful and pleasant.The bed and room were comfortable, although the en-suite bathroom was rather cramped.Breakfast was excellent - good choices.The only real problem was parking. Onsite parking was down a very narrow lane and turning was difficult - I only ventured down there once.Parking outside on the High Street is well nigh impossible so, apart from when loading and unloading, we had to park in a nearby side street, which meant a fair walk.Despite this we probably will stay there again as it is convenient and the people were very friendly.

Don\'t attempt to use the off street parking if you\'re driving anything wider than a VW Polo (that\'s what I was driving) or you\'re thrill seeking (or have the full insurance on your rental car). Ample free parking is available around the corner, though. James and Katherine were very helpful and hospitable. I would recommend and stay again.

Stayed for one night while visiting parents. Lovely hosts who couldn\'t be more helpful. Welcome cup of tea on arrival which is a nice touch. Ammonite Lodge is well maintained to a high standard. Breakfast was lovely with a both an excellent choice in continental offerings including fruit and also a full English as well. The only slight issue we had was the headroom in the top family room situated in the loft conversion which is veryrestrictive and perhaps this should be made clear when booking as being tall this was a problem with hitting my head on low rafters a few times, however that aside we really enjoyed it and would stay again.

Excellent- Rating 5/5

I have stayed here a few times when the previous owners were there. I still cannot find anything wrong. I stayed in room 1 which is small and very cosy and overlooks the garden. I was made to feel very welcome and the breakfast is amazing and I don\'t use that word lightly. Thank you for a lovely stay and I will certainly be back and recommend it to family and friends xx

Recently had a 2 night stay in the family room. A very nice room although very low ceilings in parts, this would not put us off to stay again, the owners are really friendly and could not do enough for us. Breakfast was wonderful and really set us up for the day. Ideal location to visit Lyme Regis and the Jurassic coast.

An excellent sample of country life - Rating 4/5

Not wanting to stay at Axminster for a weekend while being invited for a wedding we decided to pick the Ammonite lodge at the lovely village of Chard. We had a great welcome and all our needs were met with a smile. The breakfast was great served with a good selection of local fruit, berries, jams, butter and of course the full English breakfast. The landscapes around chard are amazing and walks on the calm countryside streets are inspiring. Chard museum is across the road from the lodge and it has quite a collection of industrial archaeology items in addition to its portrayal of typical country life living. Lyme Regis bay is only 12 miles away and for us staying at the Ammonite meant hitting two birds with one stone.

A welcoming and clean establishment - Rating 5/5

My wife and I spent a couple of very relaxing and pleasent nights at the Ammonite lodge, along with two other couples from our family. Our hostess and staff made every effort, to welcome us and ensure our,stay was confortable and stress free. The room (6) was at the top of the building, very large and exceptionaly clean and tidy, the bathroom, whilst only for our use is across the landing. Breakfast had plenty of choices, service was quick and untrusive. The food arrived cooked as ordered hot and on a hot plate in generous portions. Overall we felt that our needs were placed first and that no request was overlooked. We will happily stay there again. I had forgotten to mention the courtyard, its small inviting and gets the earle afternoon sun, a great place to meet or chill out and maybe read a novel.We are regular experienced travellers, this has been our most enjoyable short break accomodation for over a year.

A warm and friendly welcome on our arrival, shown immediately to our rooms followed by tea and biscuits in the delightful garden. The rooms are small but tastefully presented with everything needed for our stay. Immaculately clean - good linen and toiletries supplied for our use- thought that the extension cable for the hair drier was particularly thoughtful. Best ever B & B breakfast with fresh fruit, pastries and perfectly cooked \'full English\' We felt thoroughly spoilt at the Ammonite Lodge and would thoroughly recommend it. The attention to detail and friendliness to us and the children was first class.

A Nice Surprise Found In Our Christmas Stockings - Rating 5/5

Christmas this year found us in Chard for a family gathering, with me and my husband spending three very delightful nights at the Ammonite Lodge.From the moment we stepped through this historic building’s threshold, the warm, friendly, jovial and ever-attentive Andrew and Clare (with their sidekick cat Simba) went out of their way to make us feel right at home and in the proper Christmas spirit.Our room (#4) was immaculately clean and roomy with a comfortable bed and VERY spacious en suite bathroom (complete with toiletries, plush oversized towels and top quality Out of Eden brand robes).We returned each evening to find the lights turned on and curtains drawn for us, plus assorted treats and a flask of fresh milk for our in-room coffee. Each morning’s breakfast service was top notch, with a wide selection of cereals, fresh fruits, yogurts, and cooked items to please anyone’s tastes.The dining room currently features beautiful limited edition seaside artwork by local artist Gail Morris.We were so impressed with them, that we purchased three of the numbered and framed prints for our own home.We’ve stayed in our fair share of B& Bs in the past, and the Ammonite Lodge stands out above the rest.Why?Clare and Andrew are hospitality professionals who bring their wealth of global experience to the lodging (with a healthy dose of “welcome into our home” thrown in for good measure).It was no surprise to learn that Andrew spent 25 years as an executive with the Hyatt Hotel organization, with assignments throughout Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa (EMEA).Despite this professional background, the atmosphere at Ammonite Lodge is as un-corporate and un-stuffy as one can get. Andrew’s breakfast-time belly laughs and Clare’s enchanting charm are proof of this.Plus, the other guests we met and chatted with over breakfast were also delightful.Will we stay here again, the next time we’re in Chard?Absolutely!Do we highly recommend Ammonite Lodge?Of course!

Incredibly friendly and helpful landlords;they indulge in their guests\' every whim!Lounge, breakfast room and bedrooms are extremely cosy - tastefully furnished in a way that goes hand in hand with the age of the building;however, facilities are state-of-the art and modern:bathroom, TV incl. plenty of channels, free WiFi and even an iPod docking station!!!The breakfast buffet in the morning leaves nothing to be desired:a huge selection of fresh fruit, serials and cooked breakfast according to the individual requests of each guest. Even the landlords\' pets are very friendly and enjoy a cuddle from guests. And all this for a budget price - best value for money guaranteed!The only disadvantage:Every stay comes to an end, eventually. But there is always the possibility to come back one day... ;-)

Such a commitment to service and genuine kindness is rarely experienced!Perfect location for an event at River Cottage with only 15-20 min. drive through the nice countryside.

A Great Stay - Rating 5/5

Recently stayed for a few nights whilst on a cricket tour in Somerset, and the Ammonite proved to be an ideal base for the trip. The hospitality of Claire and Andrew was beyond the call of duty, and the Ammonite itself was a beautiful building beautifully cared for. Tea and cake on arrival, and a fantastic breakfast spread in the morning - what more can you ask? The cricket may have been less than stellar, but the defeats were made more bearable by the hospitality of the Ammonite throughout our stay. Heres hoping that Andrew will bag a couple of centuries this season.Tim, James & Andy

Guys, thanks so much for staying with us...it was a pleasure and hopefully next weekend a century will beckon! We hope to see you all again next year. Take care and bye from Clare and myself.

A Great Place to stay - Rating 5/5

Just returned from staying at the Ammonite Lodge for 3 evenings. The welcome by Clare and Andrew was very warm nothing was ever too much bother. Breakfast was great a selection of cereals, fruit, juices, preserves etc and the cooked option made with all locally sourced products. The little touches really make a difference, fresh milk in your room for tea & coffee, ammonite shaped chocolates on your pillow, large soft towels in the bathroom and bathrobes. Would recommened this as a place to stay.

Great Small Hotel - Rating 5/5

Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip as it was conveniently situated for the Exeter to London main road. If you are looking for a corporate business hotel this place is not for you. If you want good old fashioned service with a nice touch of quality, original rooms with character beams you will like it here, and the price too.The lodge is a very nice old building with lots of character situated on the main street of town but with its own private parking at the rear and a lovely walled garden to take a seat once the parking is done. The hosts Andrew and Clair are relatively new to the hotel but seem to have been there for ages such is their warm welcome and knowledge of local restaurants etc.I did learn that Andrew, until recently, worked for a prestigious 5 star international hotel chain and the style that has been bought to the hotel definitely indicates this from the fresh milk, cookies and chocolates on arrival in the room through to the super soft towels, crisp linen sheets and bathrobes all provided. Add on to all of this the rather nice breakfast prepared and served by the hosts with a great morning banter to round off a great stay.We were also directed to a restaurant called the Bath House in Chard a very exceptional place with a European/Malaysian fusion of food. See separate review for this.

Reviewer:Dr John Verrier | Wed 9th Oct 2013


An excellent B&B - Rating 5/5

We had a lovely night's stay at the lodge. The room was small but very we'll decorated and with lots of lovely extras that make a difference, a welcome card, dressing gowns, tea, coffee, biscuits, sweets and fresh milk in a thermos. The garden, lounge and breakfast room were equally pretty and inviting - a real home from home. Breakfast itself was lovely, all locally sourced and a good range of quality products. The one small criticism concerns the en-suite which was functional but needs updating. The owners though have only had the place for a few months and are gradually working on some renovations - not that there's much that needs doing. We had a lovely bathroom next to our bedroom and this more than made up for the en-suite. Finally, the owners themselves, were friendly, informative but not over-attentive.Great value for money and we'd happily recommend.
