This was our 4th stay at the Reluctant Panther Inn but first time during summer months. The grounds are spectacular in the summer. The staff were as lovely accommodating as always. The manager Sean is amazing. Remembered us, the wine we like and even provided us with an upgrade to the Panther suite which was gorgeous. Dinner was fantastic. The food is excellent and the remodeled dining room looks wonderful. There is something about the relaxed feel and good nature of the staff that creates a truly enjoyable experience.

Visited 2 times in August. Very comfortable mattress and bedding. Bathroom was to die for with Jacuzzi. Breakfast breads were different each day and delicious. Staff was friendly and warm. Quiet and central location near restaurants and shopping.We loved is closeness to the Dorset Theatre.Even a 🍪 on your pillow.

We stayed again at The Reluctant Panther. It was our second time in two weeks. This time for our anniversary. The room was amazing. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Manager Sean is outstanding. We ate dinner in the restaurant it too was perfectly prepared and presented. We will return.

Everything at the Reluctant Panther is aimed at customer happiness. The grounds this time of year are incredibly lovely and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the gardens, pond and surrounding mountain scenery. The Inn is beautifully restored. Rooms are themed - ours was the library suite and was very roomy, very comfortable. Turndown each night included delicious cookies. Breakfast is served in the restaurant, which is both elegant and open. We ate one evening in their restaurant. The food was wonderful. Service throughout our stay was outstanding. All staff were friendly and helpful. The manager was always present and went out of his way to help us find the best things to do in the area. We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the Inn.

Just a great small hotel with beautiful grounds, excellent views, great staff and very nice unique rooms. Also a great restaurant for the included breakfast and a non-included dinner. I would no go anywhere else as the restaurant is so good. An outstanding chef and top shelf waitstaff.
