Absolutely wonderful! Room was far better than I could have expected, with luxury touches. Breakfast at the olive branch was absolutely spot on. Quality food & drinks served

We booked this at very short notice (less than 24 hours) due to a family emergency. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and worked around our situation with l...ate check in etc... Room was fabulous, garden and access was excellent for our 2 dogs.
We know Wimborne very well having lived there for a while and know the Olive Branch - had a relaxing evening over a glass or 2 of wine and breakfast the next morning was fantastic....
Will be staying again !

Came here with family to celebrate my Mum's 60th - best decision ever.

Rooms are immaculate - great designs with the copper baths and double showers. All the d...ecor in the rooms really brings it to life and reinforced the Jane Austin theme in our room. All the team at The Olive Branch where breakfast is served are helpful too, we came back for dinner!

Will definitely be back to visit again when we are next down this part of the South!

A truly beautiful inn in the centre of the town with individually unique rooms and views of the minster, ran by a wonderful team.

Beautiful rooms with lovely personal touches. I loved that there is a camera pointing at the church across the road that you can see on your tv

We had a fabulous night in a room full of character! To arrive and find the screen is displaying the webcam overlooking the Minster before the eye catches the g...leaming copper bath almost within diving reach of the end of the four poster bed. Service was friendly and perfunctory. Loved the thought that has gone into the pictures, the props (including the pipes!), the cushions, frog and amenities.

Food was creative and enjoyable for both dinner and a sumptuous breakfast over at The Olive Branch. Good wine selection, enhanced due to the family 'joining' of Plantagenet wines to the seasonal Pickled Partridge beer from the Badger beers of Hall and Woodhouse. The service at both meals, by Helen, was wonderful, friendly, fastidious and caring. The opportunity to sample wines to make the best match to the food served a further benefit.

We look forward to returning.

Full of character room and bathroom, only stayed one night wish it was longer! We visited The Olive Branch for lunch and breakfast and it was absolutely delicio...us! My other half said it was the best brekkie she had tasted in years (and we have stayed in a lot of hotels and visited quite a few pubs and cafes in those years!) I was impressed with the range of Badger beers on offer and the interesting choice of decoration both inside and out. We will definitely be making a return visit. See More

Couldn't find fault with anything, good quality linen, towels and finishes in the room made it really special. Breakfast was superb and staff very accommodating. ⛤⛤⛤⛤⛤

Very welcoming staff. Had complimentary water on arrival, rooms were clean and well stocked with some delicious teas and soaps etc. Breakfast was great and bed...s were comfortable. My son left his sleeping comforter in the room and the staff had emailed me for a forwarding address before we even realised it was missing. Would highly recommend it. See More

I love this place, first time stay on a visit to Wimborne for work. I need to come back, excellent attention to detail and customer service. Breakfast was very good as was dinner the night before at The Olive Tree. Would highly recommend a visit.

What a fantastic experience I had a couple of weeks ago. The welcome was warm and friendly and the room was subtly-themed. Will definitely be returning!

Where will our elves capture him this month??
Come on in and see our board and grab our Christmas menu and chat to our elves!! 🎄

Following the fire on Saturday 12th August at The Albion in Wimborne; we know that the fire started in an external compound separate from the property, however it is not clear at the moment what the cause of the fire was.

Our team acted superbly in getting everyone out of the building quickly and safely. We would like to thank Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service for their swift response and their immediate actions helped prevent the spread of the fire.
For the safety of... our team and guests we have closed the Albion whilst we check for any damage and clean the rooms. We are working hard to get the bedrooms at The Albion open as soon as possible and hope to open the main body of the hotel this week with the ground floor rooms opening once we have established what works need to take place, we apologise for any inconvenience this causes our guests.

Further updates, including re-opening dates, will be posted on our Facebook page and website www.theolivebranchwimborne.co.uk and www.1777.co.uk
